I received a call last month from my friend and colleague, Erin Turner, asking me to create some professional portraits for her newly launched website. I was super excited and incredibly flattered! I also had moments of intimidation- I love Erin’s creative eye, she captures families at their most real and most beautiful. This is not an area I excel in and I’m in awe of her abilities. I managed to work through my personal insecurities (being married to a therapist has it’s benefits) and we had a fabulous day of shooting.
Portraits For Portrait Photographer
Once we got the date down we had a phone call about the feel of her new site and what her imagery needs would be for the first couple of years. We decided to focus on capturing Erin’s easy going demeanor but make sure the look was professional and polished. She also wanted a location image in Dumbo where she first established her brand.
I love this image for Erin’s about page and LinkedIn profile. Professional with a stylish edge.
This one is perfect for social media and her newsletter, it gives her clients a feel for her relaxed confidence while shooting.
I’ll always think of Erin as a cool Dumbo resident, even if she’s now based out of Charleston!
She’ll be back!
Erin will be back to offer more family sessions in the spring and summer as well as Hamptons bookings. I suggest shooting her an email now if you want to book for 2015- she’ll keep you in the loop with available dates. She’s also really fun to hang out with all day, one of my favorite images is this candid. Might not be right for branding but it captures her softness and lighthearted nature.
