I just had the pleasure of working with Laine to create a collection of photographs to use in my business for a variety of applications. I was blown away at the care she took to learn who I was, what I care about, what my business is about, who my clients are, the feeling I want them to have when they work with me . . . her listening was stellar, and her questions incredibly targeted and insightful.
Laine guided me through crafting the plan for our session, from a visit to my closet to creating a shopping list for missing and needed items, identifying locations, types of shots in each outfit, in each location, and confirming how the shots could be used in my work.
Going through the collection of photos to narrow the hundreds down to the final group was at first intimidating, but Laine is a master of maintaining the right mindset, focus, and keeping the end goal always clear. As insecurities and hesitancies arose in me, she magically counseled and left me with some new understandings of how I might surpass those insecurities once and for all. That, I had not expected, nor experienced with any other photographer!
She ensured that I would end up with groups of photographs that told stories, that were a mix of closeups, 3/4 shots, 1/2 body shots, and full-body shots, that were vertical and horizontal, that could be used for social media with text and graphics added, etc. Her work is impeccable, artistic, and absolutely lets my personality and preferences shine through. Highly recommend!
