Tiffany and Kas in the new Planet Photo Studio

New Milford CT studio portraits

Tiffany came to see the studio and support her mom Amy when she took part in my 50 over 50 portrait project. I have known Tiffany since she babysat for my kids when she was in high school and I have photographed her a couple of times before.  I convinced her that she needed to come in with her boyfriend Kas so that I could try out a new backdrop and I could practice my shooting flow in the new studio. She agreed! 

Shooting in a new space is exciting but also a little daunting. My old studio was small but I had my system down. Now I have room to set up three shooting areas and we can flow from one to the next, it’s awesome!

Tiffany is a dancer and Kas is a hockey player so the COVID quarantine has brought big changes for both of them; but it’s also given them time to slow down and spend time together. They’re pretty cute right? 

Which are your favorites? I love that they both love fashion and that they wanted to experiment with me. Let’s design your portrait session! 

Tribe Photo Shoot Make Up Lesson

Photo Shoot Make Up

A lesson in how to get photo shoot ready make up

Applying just the right amount of make up for your photo shoot is not easy!

I invited a few of the girls from the Planet Photo Tribe to join me and Stacey at Skin and Tonic in New Milford to learn how to apply natural make up for the group and concept shoots we have planned this year. All the girls get their make up professionally applied for their own individual shoot but we usually don’t have time to all get professional make up for our group shoots. Learning make up techniques and figuring out what color foundation works for them was such a treat. My camera shows every detail so well applied make up is a must! 

I think Sam, Daniella, Susannah, Erinn and Olivia did a fabulous job! 

Thanks for the lesson Stacey. 

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.

 

 

 

We are planning our next branding shoot so follow Placeres Naturopathic on instagram to see more of our images and for lots of tips on living a healthy balanced lifestyle.

Project Beauty 2020

Celebrating the natural beauty of our teens

It’s that time again!

For the third year in a row I am going to be doing all natural portrait mini shoots to celebrate the natural beauty and confidence of our local teens. Now more than ever we need to recognize our teens and remind them that they are “good enough” just the way they are. They should not be judged by their clothes, hair, make-up or designer labels and you NEVER should judge a book by it’s cover; 

  • Everyone is unique. 
  • Differences should be celebrated. 
  • Appearance does not matter.

We are all worthy and important.  

Project Beauty is a movement among senior photographers all over the U.S. to place emphasis on simple, natural light portraits of young adolescents. No make-up. Simple clothes.  The emphasis is on you. You DESERVE it!

This year has been challenging to say the least, so let’s have some fun and remember who we are behind that snapchat filter and instagram worthy selfie!

Every year we make a donation to a local charity from Project Beauty. This year we will be raising funds for Camella’s Cupboard. Helping to provide food and supplement nutritional needs of local children.

What do I need to know?

Who can sign up?

Anyone and everyone between the ages of 13 and 18!

All are invited to join the movement to celebrate natural beauty. In the past it’s been mostly girls but I am not going to say no to the boys!

What should I wear?

I want the emphasis to be solely on you, so please choose a white or black top and denim on the bottom. 

How much does it cost?

$60

50% of the proceeds will be donated to Camella’s Cupboard. 

Can I include my family?

Unfortunately not for this one. This shoot is about our local teens. If you have a dog who joins in that would be OK. Teen aged siblings can book a time slot next to yours. 

Where will we shoot?

I will come to you. 

By that I mean, I will come to your yard or outside your home. I will not provide props or have a chair with me. You need to meet me outside and we will maintain AT LEAST six feet between us at all times. 

 

What do I get?

You will get an app with FIVE social media sized files. Full resolution and additional images are available for purchase. 

SIGN UP BY LOCATION

I am going to be coming to your yard or door step in May so please sign up for the day I will be in your area. I might contact you to adjust the time ever so slightly to cut down on zig zagging across town! 

I will be in Southern New Milford (south of the bridge) on Tuesday, Sherman on Wednesday and Northern New Milford on Thursday. 

If you are in a different town but would like to participate I would love to hear from you. Fill out the contact form and let me know your town and then invite your friends to join you!

Let's tell your story

can't wait to meet you!
