Welcome to my little Photography – Marilla shoot post!

Hi everyone!

I used to work as a photographer as a bit of a side hustle a couple of years ago. I loved the creativity and working with creative people. It was very different from my day job that was mostly grey screens and spreadsheets.

I would normally do a single photographic session a week while my partner was at band rehearsal. I had set up my garage as a small studio. It really is amazing what you can produce with a number of lights and a paper background.

I wanted to give an example of what a normal portfolio shoot that I’d do as my photographic bread and butter…

I’m actually not super, super thrilled with all the overexposed areas in a lot of these photos… but let’s ignore that for the moment and concentrated on the range of shots we’d try and capture in an hour and a half shoot.

Marilla was immensely patient and didn’t balk at the idea of climbing over fences. The goal was to create as many useful shots for her modelling portfolio within the time we had. We managed to get 4 looks in. Marilla did all the styling and I did the makeup and photography.

The final look was lingerie…

That’s it… those were the 4 looks. We knocked this out in a couple of hours and really didn’t break the bank to produce.
