Do you cringe at having your picture taken?
We all know that feeling when someone points their cell phone your way, you feel awkward, and you’re convinced you won’t look good in the pictures people take. If you feel like you’re not photogenic, the problem is not you or the way you look. The problem is, the camera can’t tell what it’s looking at. The photographer is the only person who can interpret what the camera sees and show you at your best angles and in good lighting.
That means it’s not your job to be photogenic! In fact, “photogenic” is not even a real thing. When you see pictures of you that you don’t like, it’s because the person who clicked the shutter button had no training! Choosing the right photography tools, setting up great angles, and using optimal timing is what it takes to get great portraits.
That’s why Lara Grauer Photography has an efficient and playful 3-step photography process that countless clients have deemed “fun,” even after starting off wary.
Here’s how it works: First, you’ll have a pre-photoshoot design & planning consultation with Seattle Photographer Lara Grauer. You’ll talk about what makes you tick, how you’d like your photos to look, you’ll figure out what to wear, what story you want to tell, and you’ll make a plan so you get the photos you want and not just the photos you happen to luck out with.
Next, you’ll have your fun and fearless photoshoot! Professional hair & makeup styling is included so you’re bound to feel confident for the big moment. Your session will be all about you – outfit changes and lots of poses included! From there, you’ll meet with Lara to select the best photos and make the final decisions for your photo order. When that’s all done, the only thing left to do is wait…! When your custom portraits are ready, Lara will deliver and install them so you can start enjoying them right away!
