Women in Business New Milford CT
I am creating a portrait project around all the wonderful women who have started their own business in New Milford. Since I moved into my studio on Bank Street at the end of 2016, I realized just how many female entrepreneurs had opened a store or started a business in downtown New Milford. I would like to take a black and white portrait of these women in business for a future exhibition celebrating women entrepreneurs. My goal is to show strong, independent and powerful female entrepreneurs while also showing their feminine side. Check out my inspiration board.
Are you a business owner? Would you like to be part of my portrait project? I would love to hear from you!
I am sure you have a few questions, check here first but contact me if there is something I missed!
What to wear?
I would like to show your glamorous side! All portraits will be shot in black and white so don’t worry about the color but textures photograph really well, I love lace! Large earrings can be distracting but a necklace always look great. Most portraits will be waist up so don’t worry about shoes!
How long will it take?
About 30 minutes. You should come dressed and with hair and make up already done. If you want to arrange to have professional make up, I generally use Blush Couture but Joe’s Salon and Spa also offers make up services – contact them both directly for pricing and scheduling information.
Do I get to see all the images?
I will choose one image to be printed for the exhibition. You can arrange a time to view your images and select your favorite – that is my gift to you. Additional images will be available for purchase.
Do I have to have a brick and mortar store?
No. But you do have to be a female registered business owner in New Milford, CT. This project is open to for-profit or non-profit organizations. If you started it, I want to hear from you! I know there are many ladies involved in a MLM company, unfortunately I cannot focus on these businesses this time, unless you started the original business.
Is there a charge?
No. I will print my favorite for the exhibition. I will gift you one matted portrait of your choice, additional portraits will be available for purchase (no obligation!)
Can I bring my husband, kids, dog, cat, fish?
No. This is a portrait project focusing on New Milford women in business. If you would like to arrange a portrait session to include all or some of the above then we can do that.
My business is in New Milford but I live in a neighboring town, can I still participate?
How many women can do this?
I am going to start by saying 20 but I may add more.
I look forward to hearing from you!
