Photoshoots are collaborative creative projects, rather than mass production of a set of pre-designed shots.
Prior to each photoshoot during the consultation session I ask my clients whether they have any inspiration images. I create a Pinterest board so that they can pin their favourite images with a note about what makes the image stand out to them, whether it is the hair and makeup, posing, lighting, or the overall mood of the image.
This is one of the images my lovely client had found on Pinterest (photographer unknown),
which used as inspiration for this image. How did we do?
