Taking Family Portraits to the Next Level

January 5, 2022

While my current Franklin home studio space may be small, it’s also quite mighty! I love taking a family portrait and elevating it just a bit for a fashion and luxury vibe. When the Staggs family stepped into my studio, they were not only fantastic to work with but open to doing something a bit more dramatic! It definitely helped that Nicole is a model herself and owner of Third Coast Elite so you know she wasn’t looking for anything boring! Proper lighting, posing, and direction plays a big part in taking a somewhat safe and standard portrait … and turning it into something more dramatic and even editorial. Below you’ll find the final edit, original image straight out of camera, and the metadata.
