PORTRAIT MADAME PRO EXCELLENCE : YOU SHOULD EXPECT EXCELLENCE

Updated: Apr 28



Every person is unique, every life experience and career path is different so why should you have the same professional portraits than the people around you or in your industry?

Here is how we tailor the portrait experience to your needs.

PRE PHOTOSHOOT CONSULTATION: LET'S TALK!



Your portraits should match your energy, your personality, your expertise, your ambition ... in short: your personal brand, your executive presence.


All those elements can be conveyed through the location of the shoot, the background behind you, the mood, the type of light, the colors (of the background, of your clothes), the body language, etc.


It's a bit like creating your own very personal logo!

So to make sure everything matches your brand and messaging needs, we organize before your shoot a consultation, either face to face on the location of your choice (at your office, at a café, at the studio), or through Facetime, Zoom or Skype.


We have a full set of different questions and then a recommendation to then tailor the photoshoot to your needs. We discuss the location(s) of the shoot, the different moods you would need, the different outfits you will wear for your headshots, which colors would fit more your personal brand, etc.

It also gives you the opportunity to share all your specific wishes and preferences! Transparency & communication are in our core values.

SOMETIMES YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT YOU NEED


It happens to lots of us not to be able to articulate in words what we wish in terms of professional portraits and personal brand, however, we do know how it translates in terms of images.


That's why we will work with you through professional portraits mood boards that include many different types of inspirations and portraits to share with us what you envision for your personal brand.


Share your story and ambition with us: we create your portraits.

THE BUSINESS PORTRAITS PREP GUIDE

Should you wear a jacket? a shirt or a top? Should you wear your glasses? etc... so many questions to be answered!

To make sure they are all answered, you will receive the Business Style Prep pdf guide that will detail everything until the day of your shoot!



PHOTOSHOOT: THE 'NO PRESSURE, NO JUDGMENT' ZONE

NO TIME LIMIT: YOUR SATISFACTION LEADS THE CLOCK

We do believe that good results can be achieved in 2min ... but usually... like good wines, GREAT results require a tiny bit more time.


Like everything, everybody needs a little 'warm-up' time... and its length differs from person to person. All of that to say that we can have a super-efficient shoot and be done in 1/2h because you love your professional portraits and you have a packed schedule.


But if you are in search of a full personal branding portrait shoot with different expressions, outfits, etc... we can allow the time needed to create that as well.

NO LIMIT ON THE NUMBER OF OUTFITS

The 'beginner' mistake we all make is to have one great portrait and use it for e-very-thing : Linkedin, press release, Facebook, Twitter, website... mother's day gift.... Tinder ...

Let's have you step up your game and get a collection of professional portraits with different moods and messaging for your different uses.

WHY DO WE PRE SELECT TOGETHER ON SITE YOUR FAVORITE IMAGES?

During an executive portrait shoot, we work hand in hand together to meet all your expectations.


Through my life in the corporate world, I can not stop counting the number of times I got my pictures taken at work, where I never got the chance to see the back of the camera of the photographer and 2 weeks later I would receive a picture where my hair was bad, or I looked quite fat or even worse: I didn't recognize myself.


To avoid at all cost those portrait shoot situations, you and I will completely be in the same team and we will create your portraits by seeing them directly together.

It allows us to arrange the hair the way you prefer (it's such a personal preference! And I speak from personal experience), to change an outfit if we don't like it, to perfect your body language, to nail the energy we want you to convey, etc.

After taking headshots and portraits of you through the different lights and outfits, we will sit down and narrow down a pre-selection of your favorite images to go through editing.

There is a 100% chance that you will walk out of the studio 300% thrilled by the images!

THE RETOUCHING: BRINGING YOUR PORTRAIT TO THE NEXT LEVEL

As I often say, when it is perfectly well managed, editing should not be visible. It fixes all the small 'real life' details and makes professional portrait go from basic to neat, refined and upscale.

We work with a professional retoucher who does editing that is so perfectly dosed that you will fully recognize yourself and feel 100% comfortable using your images.

CHOOSING YOUR FINAL IMAGES

Depending on the Portrait Madame package your choose, there are several final images included in your package.


Through an online gallery, maximum 7 business days after your photoshoot, you will be able to discover your pre-selection edited and select your absolute favorite pictures.


Why several portraits are included?

To have different professional executive portraits will allow you to smartly adapt your image depending on your use and show the different facets of your personality through the different media you use.

But of course, for those of you who have wider needs or extensive media coverage, there are different Executive Packages with more images included.


You will receive your final selection of professional headshots in .jpg format in color and in black and white.





SHOULD YOU HAVE YOUR HAIR AND MAKEUP PROFESSIONALLY DONE

FOR YOUR EXECUTIVE PORTRAIT SHOOT?

Dear peers photographers, getting inspired is "ok" but please find your own words for your website: It will be way much more convincing, believe me. Trust your creative mind. Also, you are surely aware of the copyright on your images, it's the same for website copy. Feel free to contact me for any question you would have, I am always happy to answer !
