Been thinking about getting some professional snaps? Maybe you need some fresh photos for your insta, bio, facebook, or maybe you just want some for fun. I’m all about portraits that feel more like a fashion shoot and I’m also all about that warm, grainy, 70s vibe and SO into portraits that DON’T scream “commercial white-wall headshot with perfect artificial lighting”. If your vibe is more Moonrise Kingdom tones meets Almost Famous styling but shot in something not too dissimilar from a Mad Men office then I think we could work something out. 

So how does a portrait session work? Let me answer all your q’s so you can book in and feel totally chill knowing exactly how it all works.

send me an email and tell me alllll about your dream portrait shoot. Into natural light and want to shoot somewhere pastel coloured at sunrise? Done. Want something dark and moody with cool coloured lights but have NO IDEA where to shoot? That’s what I’m here for. I spend WAY more time than I care to admit exploring the suburbs of Melbs for rad 70s locations.

We’ll work out the locations- based on what you’ve told me and what I’ve found that suits this vibe (and is within your budget if it’s a location we have to pay for). We can chat about colours and what you could wear that compliment you and your chosen location. You can even send me some snaps of possible outfits and I can help you pick the best ones- or I can bring some rad styling pieces like fur coats and go-go boots along. It’s totally up to you whether you want to book in an HMUA- I recommend it because I think you always feel more confident when you’ve had a professional make you look 22/10. But if you feel comfier doing you own or coming makeup free I totally dig that too.

We meet at the chosen location and take some snaps. I’ll guide you through posing so you feel comfortable and not too posey- so not into that super posed vibe. I’ll bring the tunes and we can spend an hour or two hanging out making magic! You can have a look at the snaps as we go too- I’ll be shooting both on digital and film!

So editing works in two ways- 1. I choose the snaps of you I think are the best and send them to your for approval for editing (a fave because sometimes other people can see our best angles better than we can ourselves. Plus way less stress/ deliberation on your end) or 2. You choose the snaps for me to edit.
I’ll send through the snaps within 5 days of the shoot for this selecting process, and then edits will be done within 7 days of selects being made. They’ll all be sent via dropbox for you to download at high resolution and keep forever. If you want any changes made just let me know!

And OF COURSE I have a super special deal for anyone keen to book in between now and the end of July for a shoot in the coming months. For a TWO HOUR portrait session, including location scouting, concept creation, all film costs and FIFTEEN fully edited snaps is only $450!

Just mention this post when sending me an email (hello@emjensencreative.com) to book in at such a super discounted rate. I’m so keen to hear from you guys and make some magic with you! Here’s a few snaps from past portrait shoots to get you all inspired ~
