Fast Deadlines and Busy Schedules - 5 Reasons Why a Studio Session Might Be For You

Sometimes you have weeks and weeks to plan. Sometimes we pick the perfect location, we plan a series of wardrobe changes, and we cater to your hobbies and interests. Sometimes we have a golden hour sunset ready for us and a rain date back-up just in case.

And sometimes we need things done fast. No planning, no mood boards, just photos now because the yearbook deadline is four days away.

That’s where my studio comes into play. I love a downtown skyline with a warm sunset as much as anyone, but sometimes that just isn’t practical or available for some sessions.

Let’s face it: some of us are procrastinators. We’re busy and we just keep thinking, “I’ll schedule my senior photos soon,” or we say to ourselves, “My keynote speech isn’t for four weeks–I have plenty of time for a new headshot.”

When that deadline is quickly approaching, or when you need a new portrait and it’s the middle of winter in Ohio, my studio is here for you.

Five reasons why a studio session with me might be perfect for you:

1. Flexibility

We don’t need to worry about the time of day or the weather. My studio is always the same and always available. I can also typically schedule a studio session much sooner than an outdoor session. More often than not, I find myself scheduling out several weeks when clients are looking for outdoor sessions on weekends. But studio sessions? Those can happen whenever you have a free hour on your hands.

2. Accessibility and Comfort

Come through the door, walk a few steps, and we can begin. We don’t need to worry about parking or walking a mile through wet grass or trekking over the river and through the woods. Whether you have mobility concerns or just want something easy, then my studio’s accessibility is perfect for you. Plus we’re inside, so the temperature is always the same, winter or summer, morning, noon, or night. Ohio can be frigid one day and blistering the next. But in the studio, we don't have to worry about any of that.

3. We Can Work Quickly

My studio is my comfort zone. I know the ins and outs of the backdrops, the lights, and the space. I know how to move you and pose you just right without worrying about distractions in the background or anything or anyone else joining the photo unexpectedly. We don’t have to walk back to a car for a wardrobe change. My backdrops are on a pulley system, so I can change colors and textures in less than a minute. (I have five painted backdrops that match just about every skin tone and wardrobe choice.) Working in the studio also makes my editing process faster because, again, I am in control of light, color, and the rest. I can polish and edit a studio photo that day, so if you have a next-day deadline, then I can make it happen.
