Junior Tribe Glitter Photoshoot

Glitter PhotoShoot

Junior Tribe 2020

I am sure you have read one of the many cute quotes and sayings about glitter;

A life without glitter is no life at all.     
Toni Collette

When life gives you Monday, dip it in glitter and sparkle all day.     
Ella Woodward

Shower the world with pink and glitter.     
Tori Amos

If something doesn’t look right, throw some glitter on it.     
Adam Lambert


Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins.

I am 100% certain that Kate, Caitlin and Grace left a lot of sparkle wherever they went on Tuesday! Glitter has the habit of staying with you and showing up in unexpected places at unexpected times, but you have to admit it does make you smile!

We chose the right week to be in the studio with the temperatures rising outside we were very relieved to be in the air conditioning for our latest Junior Tribe shoot. You’ll notice that there are no group shots, we actually staggered the shoots to minimize the numbers in the studio at one time so we had to cut out the traditional group shots we usually take. 

I am so impressed by the girls who took part, they have all grown in confidence in front of the camera and it shows in the amazing images we captured. 

If you would like to schedule a fun shoot for the teen in your life then reach out and let’s get something on the calendar! We had so much fun throwing glitter with the Planet Photo Junior Tribe summer model experience. If your 10, 11 or 12th grader would like to join the Tribe then I need to hear from you SOON! We are getting ready to start planning regular Tribe influencer shoots!

Head shot Day

Branding Headshot Day

First Monday Every Month

When was the last time you updated your headshot? Your online first impression should be genuine, authentic and UP TO DATE! It needs to look like you now. Not the you before you cut your hair; before you lost 20 pounds; or how you looked 20 years ago! 

In my opinion, a good head shot should show a little bit of your personality but it should also show professionalism. 

Think about where you will share your head shot. Do you present at conferences or meetings? Do you have your head shot on your business card? Linked-In? Social Media or dating websites? Determining your audience will give me an understanding of how you should be photographed. Does your company have special requirements? Some require a white backdrop and I can do that!

 

Let me help you update your personal brand with a new headshot.

Reserve your spot on the first Monday of the month to be eligible for special pricing.

You will be photographed in up to two outfits on a light grey/white background and a dark background. 

You choose your two favorite shots from a gallery and I will deliver fully edited versions to you (in color and black and white!). 

$200

If you need more than the Headshot Monday you should check out the  Solo and Small Business Branding Sessions. Contact Me and we can design a shoot around your specifications.

Bubbles and Balloons with the Junior Tribe

Portraits New Milford

Harrybrooke Park is a popular destination for portraits in New Milford, CT. The gardens are spectacular and I thought we might find a little relief from the sun in the shade of all the beautiful evergreen trees for our bubbles and balloons Junior Tribe shoot. 

Ella, Kate and Caitlin were fantastic and we had so much fun because they are all starting to get to know each other. There is something incredibly joyful about seeing bubbles drifting in the air, maybe memories of childhood? I probably put them in the same category as seeing a rainbow or driving past a herd a field of cows…. I can’t resist the temptation to announce that I see them!

We had lots of laughs and maybe just a tiny little bit of competition to see who could blow the biggest bubble! 

I am so happy to be spending time with this amazing group of girls this summer! We are three shoots into our summer Junior Tribe model experience and I can’t wait for the next one. We’ll be in the studio next week for something a little different but you’ll have to wait to see what our theme is…..

Every time I asked Ella if she could do something she just leaped into action. It’s so fun to photograph dancers and gymnasts!

Teen Portraits Bella Stratford CT

Bella at the Marina

Teen Portrait Shoot

I have known Bella since she was in elementary school and she was on my daughter’s pop warner cheer team. so it was such a treat to shoot her teen portraits. 

Selecting a location and styling the shoot was easy for Bella. Her parents have a boat in Stratford, CT and she knew right away that she wanted to meet there. Choosing a place that holds so many good memories is always preferable, but having it be a stunning location made it even better! I met Bella and her mom and she showed me around and I honestly don’t think her styling could have been any more on point. The hydrangeas, the fence, the boat dock…… OMG it just got better and better. 

Bella is going into her senior year at New Milford High School. It’s going to be a great year and hopefully you will see more of Bella in the 2K21 Planet Photo Tribe group shoots!

Good luck for Senior year Bella – you got this!

Choosing a location and styling the shoot is one of my favorite parts of the preparation. I love to match personalities with locations and styling with the colors of the location. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle that elevates your teen portraits to the next level. It’s my goal to deliver something unique, personal and memorable for all my clients. 

If you would like to talk about teen portraits or plan your high school senior’s portrait session then don’t hesitate! Give me a call. 

 

Milk Bath Photo Shoot Junior Tribe

Milk Bath Photo Shoot

Planet Photo Junior Tribe

Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, was renowned throughout history for her radiant skin and her stunning beauty. She was said to bathe in milk to keep her skin soft and beautiful. However, Cleopatra didn’t bathe in cow’s milk. The milk for her legendary baths was instead provided by donkeys. Legend has it that she required 700 lactating donkeys in order to supply the milk for her daily bathing regime.

The Planet Photo Junior Tribe were excited to bathe in milk for our photo shoot, Unfortunately, we had a hard time locating 700 lactating donkeys so we had to make do with Trader Joe’s Organic milk, but judging by the images, the TJ’s milk had amazing results! If you would like to find out more about the advantages to bathing in milk, check out Herb and Hedgerow for some milk bath recipes. 

 

Jordana, Grace, Ella and Kate looked stunning in the milk bath photo shoot and they were all so much fun to work with! 

I CANNOT wait for our next Junior Tribe shoot! Next week and every week over the summer we have a different theme for the Junior Tribe. 

 

The Planet Photo Junior Tribe is a summer modeling experience for 7th, 8th and 9th graders. 

Our year round influencer group for 10th, 11th and 12th grade is the Planet Photo Tribe

Through a positive attitude and an inclusive team we lift each other up and support each other. 

Your Vibe attracts your Tribe.

Junior Tribe Photo Shoot Cereal

Planet Photo Junior Tribe

Photo Shoot Cereal

I love starting a new project and this summer I decided to start the first ever Junior Tribe for kids in 7, 8 and 9th grade. COVID means shooting mainly outdoors with small groups so the Junior Tribe was invited to pick four themed photo shoots over the summer so that we could spread everyone out and keep the groups small, safe and manageable. 

We had so much fun getting to know one another and shooting our first cereal theme shoot. My kids could not believe their eyes when I came back from the store with a stack of fruity colorful cereal! Yes, I bought Lucky Charms and it wasn’t even St Patricks Day!

Everyone is a little nervous before a shoot so I invited Taylor from the regular Planet Photo Tribe to come and help put Caitlin and Katey at ease. As you can see from the images, they were amazing and I can’t wait to shoot with them again soon. 

It’s not too late to join in on all the themed photo shoots that we have planned. The next Junior Tribe themed photo shoot is scheduled for next week – they are going to be floating in milk baths. Do you know a teen that would love to take part in our summer model experience? It’s great for self confidence and for trying something new with teens from other groups, schools or towns and it’s open to guys and girls.

Thanks to Katie, Caitlin and Taylor for making the first Junior Tribe photo shoot so much fun!

Planet Photo is scheduling family, senior and teen portraits outside this summer with limited availability. I will maintain a social distance and make sure that we are doing everything to keep your family as well as mine safe. Read more about our COVID policy here
Personal branding shoots are also available with slight modifications. Your web and social media presence is as important as ever so let’s update your website images. 
 

Branding Placeres Naturopathic

Branding

I would love for you to meet Dr Amanda Placeres. Dr. Amanda Placeres is located right next to me on Bank Street in New Milford and it has been an inspiration to see the drive and enthusiasm she has brought to her business. We have brainstormed on how to best present a cohesive and professional web and social media presence, and we have both had so much fun and learned so much about branding through images along the way. 

 

What business do you own? 

I am a Naturopathic Physician and acupuncturist. I founded Placeres Naturopathic & Acupuncture from a place of heart and continue to lead with passion. Our first and most important goal is to get your mind and body into optimum health. We focus on disease prevention and optimizing wellness through the least invasive and most effective therapies for the individual. With therapies that are patient-centered, we offer advanced diagnostic testing, individualized treatment plans, medical-grade supplements, and so much more. We offer a unique approach to managing your health that will leave you feeling happy, healthy, and whole. 

When did you start your practice

What started as one small office in Norwalk in 2016 has developed into a multidisciplinary clinic in New Milford with satellite offices in Norwalk and Stamford.

Why did you come to New Milford? 

I fell in love with New Milford, its people and the “small town vibe.” I knew I wanted to be a part of a community that really cared about one another. What I enjoy most about practicing in a small community is the doctor-patient relationships I form with patients and the involvement in town events. My own health was transformed by the support I received from the amazing educators in my life, like school counselors, teachers, and professors. That’s why I now seek to educate others through monthly workshops and events for free, to promote the health and well-being of the community.

Why did you start working with Janet Taub? 

Janet is my neighbor in the building where we are located. She was the first tenant I met. I was excited to have a photographer close by.  I had been wanting to update my business photos and branding for a while but did not meet the right professional yet. I knew she was great right away when I saw the type of work she did. After out first session working together, I was blown away by her expertise, ease and creativity with the camera. Every session we have done together is better than the one before. This is because Janet has taken the time to understand me, my business and how I practice. She knows better than I do how to make that translate into a photo. Since working with her, my business has never looked better on social media platforms and my website. Patients know at first glance what services we offer and what to expect before stepping foot into the door.
