SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ PHOTOGRAPHER | IMPORTANCE OF A GOOD HEADSHOT

April 06, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

How's your headshot? I'm scrolling through LinkedIn and seeing people at weddings, on vacation, or those that had the right idea as far as wardrobe but took the photo in bad lighting with a cell phone. You only get one chance to make a first impression! That first glimpse should be professional and powerful. Read on..

SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ PHOTOGRAPHER | TONE & TEASE® PORTRAITS

March 20, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

 

The lights were low with bass rocking the house while ladies dressed in heels, boots and sexy black clothing got Sweaxy!  Master trainers Diane Ferarra of Move Dance Center and Joanne Cavalcante of Studio Six Fitness and Wellness lead the ladies in a Tone & Tease® fitness class that blends basic fitness and dance moves with a sexy edge.

STUDIO 2014 was thrilled to be invited to photograph the ladies prior to the master class.  While moving equipment for location shoots is exercise enough, I wished I had dressed for this class because it was AMAZING!  I will surely be participating in the next one!

When Lily entered the studio she looked like a typical teenager wearing jeans and a cute blouse with a fresh natural face.  In tow were bags of gear for an Irish dancing portrait session.  As her mother settled in the lounge area, we headed to the back room along with sister Gabby for light tests.

When Lily disappeared to the dressing room to prepare for the session Gabby stayed behind to play.

Lily emerged from the dressing room completely transformed.  A gorgeous custom beaded dress, full curly wig and tan makeup are all part of the Irish dancing costume and an important part of scoring in competitions.

Lily began dancing at the age of seven with Shea - Jennings School of Irish Dance in Cranford, New Jersey.  She'll be participating in numerous St. Patrick's Day events around the area including Darby Road, Kilkenny House and both St. Michael's and Roselle Catholics's shows.  In July she heads to Orlando, Florida to compete in Nationals.
Good luck Lily!!!
