A little over a week ago we worked with our first “Senior Rep” for R.L. Charpentier Photography. Katie was the first Senior to respond to our Rep program this year, and she was the first to get on the schedule with us. We’re glad on both counts! What an amazing young lady, and what a fun weekend of photography!
For each portrait client(s) I like to sit down and talk about what they’re looking to do prior to a shoot. Normally I’ll spend 30 – 60 minutes talking with clients before we ever even decide to shoot together. Big questions are simple. What do you do? What do you like to do? How would you like to portray yourself in a portrait session? Do you like any particular looks, websites, magazines, etc?
When we first met Katie and her mom she had the big answers to everything. She knew exactly what she did and didn’t want. And she had some fashion ideas of her own. Several websites were e-mailed to me and I got to find out what it was that Katie wanted from a photo session. Nice! Clients who know what they want make my job ever so easy! Additionally, Katie knew exactly what she didn’t want as well………
One of her favorite fashion websites had a few “look books” on it. One of the favorite look books was shot in Joshua Tree National Park. How cool. The best thing about that? The Granite Dells have the same look and feel as Joshua Tree, only the Dells are right here in Prescott.
Saturday was reserved for the Dells, Sunday for in studio and in town for a bit. Both days were a good time, but I think it’s safe to say we were all really enjoying the Dells on Saturday. There’s just something about being out in a natural surrounding, and a stunning surrounding at that. It lends to the images you’re making at the time.
With Katie’s images wrapped up we’ll be on to our next Senior Rep sessions here in September. We’ve also still got a few openings for September portrait sessions…….So, if you’re looking for images as unique as you are, well you better get on the books soon.
