Hollywood style glamour portraits for women

We are thrilled to announce our new Hollywood glamour portraits series. We scoured Australia to find our beautiful, authentic film light from Paramount Studios in Hollywood. She is from the 1940’s and still has the name plate for Paramount Studio on the back. The bulb was missing and the wiring was for US but that was fine, we just wanted the shell and she looks amazing. We were so happy when we located her in Melbourne and can only imagine the movies and TV shows that she may have been a part of from 1939 and onwards until she was retired.

When paired up with a nice bit of haze, a golden gel and our newly created background, we get the exact look that we were looking for. For this session you will see Emma looking very elegant and beautiful, helping us to achieve exactly what we had envisaged when we conceived the idea a month ago. We hope that you love the images as much as we do. If you would like to enquire about a Hollywood glamour session for yourself please email on karen@deanagar.com.au or call me on 0402 230 669.

Just a heads up, you will need a lovely evening gown although we do have a few here so please call and we can discuss.

Mother daughter session with Rennae & her amazing girls.

This is the 3rd session in our inspiration series of photography sessions where we focus on a person or family that has undergone a traumatic or transformative event and has emerged with a story to tell which we hope will inspire others. We were heart broken when we read Rennae’s story and we felt that we had to gift her a free session to give her beautiful images that will forever be important to her.
This week we had the privilege of photographing Rennae & her 3 beautiful girls, Yvette, Monique & Josephine. After years of trauma and stress, Rennae felt it was now time for her little family to have some professional photographs done for the first time after little Monique was badly and nearly fatally burnt in an accident 2 years ago. We loved photographing this strong little family and documenting this milestone in their life, and, what a brave and positive little girl Monique is.

City lights glamour photography session with Jenny

Last year Jenny came to us for a nude/boudoir photography session. Jenny is a ballet teacher and we achieved some beautiful images with her showing some stunning poses on pointe.

This time Jenny came to us for a “City lights” glamour photography session. After having her hair and makeup done by one of our fantastic makeup artists, we did a few studio images and then jumped into the car for the short ride from our new studio in Bulimba, to the River Walk at New Farm for some glamour photographs. Jenny had found a wonderful dress especially for the session and it looked sensational against a backdrop of the city and the Story Bridge.

Portrait photography session for Danielle

Danielle’s parents wanted something different to buy her for her 21st birthday and so they purchased her a glamour/portrait photography session with us. We had just moved from our old studio in Tanah Merah to our new location in Bulimba and Danielle was the third person to be photographed in our new studio which was very exciting for us.

Danielle decided to do a few portraits, a few fantasy style images in the theme of her favourite movies and a little bit of boudoir. She received a beautiful makeover with her session and will also receive a printed photo book with her favourite images.

Portrait session with our make up artist, Monique

This week we photographed one of our wonderful makeup artists, Monique Torres from Zalique Makeup. We had been wanting to get Monique in front of the camera for the past 18 months but she was a bit too nervous. We managed to convince her to come in for a few portraits and we had an amazing session with her. Even though she actively avoided being on the other side of the camera, she was a natural. She has a grace and poise which made our job so easy and the results, amazing.

Now Monique knows first hand what a session is like as she is often asked by our clients. She had such a great time that she is planning a trip back with her husband for a romantic couples session.

If you are searching for the right Brisbane photographer to capture your personality and spirit then please get in touch. We would love to have the opportunity to give you amazing photographs that you never thought were possible. Monique may even end up being your makeup artist for your session.

Please call Karen on 0402 230 669 if you would like to discuss your own personally designed photography session.

Childrens Photography Session for Cady

Childrens photography

We absolutely love childrens photography and this child portrait session for 8 year old Cady is no exception. It was such a lot of fun to do and Cady had a ball playing princess, getting dressed up and generally being the centre of attention. We had just received our order of girls dresses and Cady was perfect to try out several of them during this session for us. Our child size violin made a wonderful prop and coincidentally, Cady is starting to learn the violin, so that worked out.

Cody’s mum was over the moon with the images and will have stunning photographs to remember her little girl by and show to Cady’s children far in the future.

We have dresses, props and accessories her for girls aged 5 – 10 so you do not have to spend a fortune on dresses if you don’t have any. Just check with me on sizing first. You are most welcome to bring in your own outfits, accessories and props also and we can design your perfect child portrait session.

For information and pricing please call Karen on 0402 230 669 or you can see more information and contact on this link.

Actors headshots for Lanny.

actors-headshots-lanny-4

Lanny came to us this week for her actors headshots. She completed her acting training a few years ago and put it aside for full time employment but has decided it is time to give it a go, so headshots were her first port of call. Lanny was amazing to photograph and so incredibly easy. We absolutely loved photographing her and we decided to throw in a vintage portrait look just for fun as we could not resist her face.

There is one thing that Dean repeats over and over, and that is that he loves photographing faces. He finds faces to be incredibly interesting. Whether it is an innocent 6year old face or an 80 year old face with an amazing story to tell, he loves photographing faces.

We offer a professional hair and makeup session for the ladies or you can choose to do your own hair and makeup and come along ready to shoot. For the best results we do recommend you use our professional service unless you are very good at doing your own makeup.

You will find information on an actors or corporate headshot session with us on this link or you can call Karen on 0402 230 669.
