How A Virtual Photo Shoot Works:
A Pre-Session Styling meeting: via Zoom (20-30 minutes): to assess the natural light available in your home or office. Stephanie will also offer styling ideas for your space and help you create a “mini-set” for your shoot. This may include adding art, plants, decorative pillows, or other props that are on brand for you.
The Photo-Session: Stephanie uses screenshot capture to take your portrait while you’re on Zoom together. The session takes approx. 30-40 minutes.
After your session: Stephanie will apply her expertise as an artist and photographer to create a one-of-a kind portrait of you. Her photographs resemble miniature digital paintings or illustrations. The final look will depend on your style and brand. Photos captured using screenshot technology will be low resolution and are meant for small avatars such as Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, etc. (See Page 2 for pricing and page 3 for before and afters)
