As a professional photographer I have come across many photo malfunctions such as a blown zipper,  missing button or bee sting. It is important to plan ahead for your portrait or wedding sessions which will reduce stress in the long run.  My portrait and wedding photography survival kit consists of the following items: Mirror. This is probably the most obvious in the list. Other than touching up makeup and fixing a hair out of place, a mirror can also be used to reflect light. Powder. If hot or humid, skin tends to get shiny and oily. Translucent powder will minimize the shine. Bobby pins, safety pins, clamps...oh’ my! Whether it be pinning down flyaway hair, keeping your undershirt strap out of the shot or securing items in and out of place, these items can become your best friend on photo day. Bug spray. Shooting outdoors, especially after a rain storm or muggy day it is safe to bring bug spray. Lint roller. Everything shows up in photos! Tide stick. Accidents can happen at any time and anywhere. Be safe, not sorry.  Water. Stay hydrated. I can’t count the times I have taken photos where people have gotten light headed. Benadryl and Aspirin. Nothing ruins a photo day more than an allergic reaction or stress headache. Sewing Kit and Small Scissors. A loose button, a popped zipper or worse a loose string that won’t come unraveling. These two items will come in handy. Hangers. This last item may sound silly, but when taking photographs many like to change outfits. Be prepared with a few hangers so that clothes remain wrinkle free. These ten items have served me well over the years for school portraits, engagement photos and especially on wedding days!

With the COVID-19 pandemic causing shutdown of most businesses for the past few months, we’ve seen many taking part in more outdoor activities such as walks and bicycle rides. Among these trips we’ve seen an array of people taking photographs to share their experiences on social media. Whether it be waterfalls, flowers, or photos of kids taking a stroll on walking paths; we can serve as your one-stop shop to bring your photos to life with an array of photo printing services. Our in-house printing services allows us to print up to 44 inches long and have stock of canvas, gloss and metallic paper.

House cleaning has been a popular task since the pandemic has hit, which has caused many to come across old photographs, slides and film. We can restore old photos and convert most film and slides to digital. Prices for restoration start at $25.

Smartphone cameras are far superior than they used to be and can be a great alternative to lugging around bulky lighting equipment. However, when it comes to professional photographs, smartphones are not nearly as efficient as a DSLR Camera. Capturing tight spaces. Even with a wide angle attachment for a smartphone, capturing a tight space such as a bathroom for a real estate listing will come out looking tiny.  Flash. A smartphones flash is no different from a pen light. It is tiny and direct. A DSLR lens takes in a broader range of light and disperses light more evenly making the image look more natural.  Quality. Even on a high resolution; smartphone cameras often come out grainy and darker, not giving the photograph the quality it deserves. Sure, you can use a filter, but even those don’t offer many variations. A professional photograph can adjust their camera on the fly and provide a quality far superior than a smartphone camera.  If you still have questions about hiring a professional photographer; feel free to contact us anytime at 860.410.4303  or studio@premierportraits.net

We’ve all heard the saying don’t judge a book by its cover, but unfortunately you have less than 10 seconds to make a good impression, whether it be a job interview, networking, or connecting online. In a technology connected world, people will often look you up prior to meeting in person, or calling your place of business. Instead of using a selfie stick, or smartphone camera, consider taking a professional headshot. A typical session lasts 15-30 minutes and consists of a traditional head/shoulder pose. You will obtain proofs after the session and receive one high resolution image on a CD. Time is precious, therefore you can come to or studio, or we can come to you. If having an event, adding the service of getting a portrait done could act as a great incentive for attending the event. With our on-site printing capabilities, we can take photos upon people entering the event and have them ready to go by the time they depart. To learn more about our professional headshots contact 860.410.4303 or studio@premierportraits.net

There are plenty of reasons for your company holiday party to have a photobooth! It is a fun and exciting addition to any party or event and will provide a fun-filled experience in a variety of ways. Customizable, Branded Photos Colors, company logo, hashtags, branded message - all of this can be customized to represent your company which will serve as a keep-sake for your employees. They can hang up in their cubicle or office, or can bring home to share with their families and friends. It will continue to live-on as a cheerful, positive experience. If shared on social media, the photos will enhance your company's presence online and will show that you are a company that works hard, but also knows how to treat their employees and can have a little fun. Build Office Morale Oftentimes, employees are friends, not co-workers. Most of us spend more time at work then with our families. A photobooth will switch up your “all work no play” policy and provide a fun experience for employees to kick-back, relax and have some fun. Instead of gathering around the water cooler - the photobooth will serve as a way to interact with one another in a more down to earth, fun atmosphere. The holiday work party will carry over into the workplace, so why not create a positive experience that brings everyone together and builds morale. It’s Fun! Of course, the top reason for adding a photo booth to your party is simply that is fun! With exciting props, fun backdrops, and super creative photo options, all of your guests will get to loosen up a little and have fun. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Imagine the story you’ll be able to tell from a couple hundred pictures! Ready to rent a photobooth for your next event? Contact us today to learn more about our photobooth options at 860.410.4303  or studio@premierportraits.net
