Imagery is a crucial part of creating your brand. While your product or service is the star, if the photos you use on your website don’t reflect the type of brand you want to be, it may be time for booking your photography session with Monika Grabowska.
I always encourage my clients to check out my photographs and see what others were wearing. For most of my sessions I recommend, simple and neutral clothing, whites, greens, blues or black colors but branding portraits are unique representation of your style and that is why I recommend for you to wear clothing that makes you, YOU.
It will be ideally if you bring choice of clothing, colors and styles that suit you. In your final gallery you will be presented with images of you wearing neutral color as well as some bold colors if you will decide to bring some.
Yes and no. Ideally make up is needed for the session and if you don’t wear one it is recommend to use little a bit of concealer/ fluid and powder on your skin. I would also suggest wearing mascara so your eyes are framed nicely and lipstick. I want for my clients to feel natural as they are and very often when booking a professional make up might end up with too much make up and client not feeling comfortable with it.
Hair would be similar, wash night before and a bit of styling with dryer would be ideal.
During that time we will photograph you in different outfits and 2 or 3 different scenarios. If the weather is nice we can also go to the garden so your portfolio will include loads of variations.
If you wish to receive just one portraits, session will take 20-3o mins. Please note that as I photographer I focus on getting the best image of every client and often few poses are required to achieve it so it is very unlikely for the session to be shorter than 20mins.
