Get the Job Done: Alter Ego Photo Sessions

Make the fun of Halloween last all year when you and your friends book a Mary Kay Alter Ego Session! Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant Lisa Young has teamed with my studio to host fun shoots where clients get to tap into their wild side, their girly side, their compulsive shopper side -- ANY part of their personality that deserves equal play time!

Unlike other traditional makeovers that just apply the makeup, Lisa spends one-on-one teaching clients in personalized training sessions how to choose colors and apply their own makeup.

Here's Fran's before and after!

So how does it work?

First an everyday look is applied, then the client dresses in their first "alter" and model in their own professional photo shoot with yours truly!

Next, more glamorous and striking colors are applied to suit the next alter's personality.

Then you choose which alters you want interacting with each other in a finalized alter ego photo!

Not digging the alter ego thing? Then opt for a professional business portrait to use on your resumes, for your business, and social networking sites like Facebook and LinkedIn.

Attend our reveal party and watch your alters come to life on the big screen in a slideshow presentation set to music!

That's right! You get two looks and two photo shoots!

Love the makeup? Order from Lisa! Love the photos? Purchase from me!

Each client will have their own password-protected, online gallery to view their proofs and choose which photos they want edited and printed.

Get the Job Done: A photo spread in the Denver Post!

Sorry I've been remiss in my blogging duties! Usually this is my slow time of the year. But late season senior portraits and the success of new alter ego photo session projects with Independent Consultant Lisa Young has kept me so busy that I'm even thinking about hiring an assistant to help me stay on top of my work schedule.

But today's post is such great news, I had to take the time to share it with my readers! Five of my photos appeared in a Denver Post photo spread on Saturday! Last Tuesday, I drove to Fairplay to do an article on the "Bristlecone Dome" home owned by Keith and Sylvia Wortman. Since it was a quick turnaround (ie the article was due by end of business on Wednesday) my editor asked me to also take photos that would run with the article. I love with when my day and night jobs intersect so beautifully!

To keep both the written and photographic aspects of my journalism job separate, I spent about an hour interviewing the Wortman's on the phone and about an hour going on a tour of their amazing 4,000 square foot. Then after a quick lunch, I took about another hour wandering through the house taking photos. Because the house has such amazing views and a ton of windows, I had plenty of afternoon sunlight streaming through for some great naturally lit shots with a just a touch of fill flash. Here are the photos that ran in the Denver Post, on page 4D of the Saturday Oct. 16 Feature's section "Inside Out."

Want to see the rest of images that the page designers had to choose their favorites from? Check out this gallery. The password is: Wortman.

Turns out 700 people toured the Wortman house over the weekend after they read my article! Love it when my articles have such a great positive impact. Can't even begin to express the pride I felt in having both an article byline and a photos credit! The lovely page design helped make my article one of the most widely read lifestyle articles all weekend long and my editor told me my ability to write and shoot at the same time on a tight turnaround was one that "only a true pro could handle!" I'm just glad she had the faith in me to get the job done! Ultimately I'm hoping that with more work and more time, one of my photos can appear along my story on the cover of a section front!
