I was treated to a portrait session today. It’s strange, despite all the cameras and smartphones we have in our lives, a professional portrait seems to be just as valuable as it always was. Simona Janek of gm photographics has her portrait couture studio in Macquarie Street Leichhardt. Not only did she do my hair and makeup, she was also my photographer for the day!
Simona created a gorgeous, sophisticated smoky eye look for me, which was perfect to give a bit of a fashion and beauty edge to my professional portraits. You all know how much I love eyeliner: it just wouldn’t have been me all nude and natural. She also did an incredible job on my brows, which I was super impressed with, since I’m a bit of a control freak when it comes to them.
Simona used Makeup Forever HD Foundation, Camouflage Concealer and eyeliner on me, and M.A.C eyeshadows, contour, blush and lipsticks. My portrait couture session was a blast, I must say I’ve never been so conscious of my own body and face before! By the end of it Simona said I was moving and taking direction like a pro, small but constant movements, waiting for the shutter and then moving again. I can’t wait to share more shots with you (plus all the sneaky tips I picked up for taking a great photo!)
If you’ve got a special birthday, anniversary, or occasion coming up, why not have a special portrait session done to celebrate it? And yes, you DO deserve that professional headshot you’ve always wanted.
