Business Portraits in Houston

Business trends are constantly evolving. Technology has impacted the way we do business at so many marketing levels. Today’s business market is virtually online 24/7, virtually explaining their product line and services.

Upon completion of your new website, fresh marketing collateral and updates to your business profile images are necessary. Take a moment and review your biography page or Board of Directors page on your company’s site. Review the business portrait and or portraits you have chosen to represent your leadership, and your “high end” products or services. Often times in a large corporate setting personnel changes have occurred. Over time there are so many variations in portrait backgrounds that the “About Us” page becomes disorganized and can begin to lose the cohesive look it once had. Ask yourself this question: Does my biography profile portrait look current and appear to be of a professional quality?

Business professionals will do business with like-minded business professionals. Your web presence needs to be strong, effective and polished. In today’s market time is limited and web marketing is a key component for success.

Clothing Tips for Your Senior Portraits

Houston senior portrait photographers, Michael Carr Photography, recently photographed Kate’s senior portraits here in the studio. An in studio session was a perfect option for Kate, since it has been so hot and the weather is always unpredictable. Before her session, Kate went to Façade and had her make up done there at their salon. She brought several different outfits so she would have a variety of looks and options for her portraits. Michael was able to get to know Kate during her session, and learned that she enjoys film and wants to pursue a career in this field. We were able to have fun during her session and change up her sets and backgrounds to compliment her clothing looks. She did a great job selecting her outfits and looks and this helped make her session go smoothly.

When selecting clothing options for your senior portrait session, below are 5 tips:

1) Select solid colored clothing. A black long sleeved top is always a classic, timeless look.

2) Select simple accessories to compliment your outfits. Keep earrings simple and small. You should be the center of attention in your portraits, not your accessories.

3) Select and wear proper undergarments. For example, if you plan on wearing white pants, make sure you wear nude undergarments versus black undergarments. Or if you plan on wearing a strapless dress or top, bring a strapless bra.

4) Select a variety of outfits. Bring at least 6 outfits, and we can review before your session and usually photograph you in 3-4 outfits. Casual, dressy, and fun outfits are all great options.

5) Select clothes you love and feel confident it. Yes it is fun to shop and buy new outfits, especially for your portrait session. If you are unsure of an outfit, or a look, it’s best to reconsider and select outfits you love!

Michael Carr Photography is a portrait studio located near The Galleria, 77057. The studio is located inside a professional office building, and offers many amenities for your session.

Mom & Baby’s First Newborn Portraits

Houston newborn portrait photographers, Belly to Baby Studios, recently captured this tender moment between a Mom and her newborn son: Mom & Baby’s first newborn portraits. He was only 12 days old at the time this portrait was taken. We just completed Thomas’ newborn session and I asked his Mom if she would like to take a few photos with her son; just the two of them. She agreed and as I was talking with her during the session, this moment happened. I always encourage Moms to just take a few photos with their baby while they are so little. Of course, most of the time, all Moms tell me how tired they are, and how they don’t feel like getting in front of a camera especially after just delivering a baby. I get it, I was at that stage also and also felt the same way…tired, exhausted and hormones going crazy. But as time goes on we all are busy and we will never get this time back, nor will our babies be this small and tiny in our arms. Time goes fast and our memories of moments and details will fade. The best way to preserve those memories is through a photograph.

Houston Newborn Photographers

Houston maternity and newborn photographer, Lisa Carr, recently photographed Henry here in the studio. When I talked with Henry’s Mom over the phone, I learned a lot about her style and her taste. We talked about her personal style, color tones and décor in her home. For Henry’s newborn session, I did photograph him in the color tones and style like what is shown in our newborn gallery on our website. I also wanted to give her a different look for a few of the newborn portraits. The black and white portrait shown here is more of an art piece for their home. I knew, based on her style, that this newborn portrait would be different and would fit in perfectly hanging on a wall in their home.

We have a full prop closet here in the studio for our Maternity & Newborn Portrait clients. Our prop closet has over 20 different backgrounds, 10 different baskets, a variety of hats, diaper covers and pants and even tutus for newborn girls. We also have over 15 different wraps for your baby. For your newborn session, all you need to bring is your baby and milk or formula. Extra diapers are always recommended. You can arrive here and just relax during your baby’s newborn session.

Belly to Baby Studios is located in the Galleria area, in a professional office building, 77057. We specialize in Maternity and Newborn photography. We recommend scheduling your baby’s session actually before your delivery date, if at all possible. In some cases, this is not always possible and we understand that. We do have Moms call us that have already had their baby, and their baby is a few weeks old. That is ok, we do not turn babies away when they are outside of the ideal 12 day old window. The important thing is to get your baby photographed when they are still tiny and a newborn. After all, the newborn phase is a short window of time. You can reach us at 713-461-2862 (click to call), or visit our site to learn more: www.bellytobabystudios.com
