Claire isn’t your typical girlie girl. She’s into fencing and we joked about bringing in swords for her photo shoot!
Her mum Linda works in marketing and thought this would be an awesome opportunity for Claire to dress up, build her confidence and learn about personal styling.
Here’s what her Mum had to say:
“I can’t thank The Photo Studio enough for such a positive experience for my daughter and for a set of photos we truly love.
The creative team totally welcomed Claire and made her feel as though she was a part of them, even though she’s only 12. Their efforts and the enjoyment and respect she felt are definitely reflected in the end result.
Saphira managed the whole show perfectly, managing our expectations every step of the way and ensuring that we got the most out of the whole experience. The makeup artist, Mary Jane, achieved a natural look that only enhanced and was not obvious at all. Claire is not normally into having “fancy” hair, but Mary Jane and Claire collaborated to come up with some options that were perfect for her.
We were really lucky to have James Broadhurst do the photography. He did an amazing job getting a variety of photos; some were happy and natural, others were fashion shots and some even artistic. All of the photos taken were appropriate for her age and, I think, reflect the personality of Claire, age 12.
What I hadn’t really expected were all of the intangibles that came with the shoot. Being made to be a part of such a professional team was a definite confidence boost. Claire has come home with great hair tips, new wardrobe ideas and is really proud of the result. We’d definitely do this again.”
On the day of the shoot Claire and Linda were super fun and easy going. They were happy for us to take creative control, though they did want to re-create a photo that they’d seen on our website of a girl laying on the floor with her hair sprawled out.
They came to collect today and we’re super stoked with the photographs. We were too, so we made it our latest edition of POTW!
