Make your party memorable with our photo booth!

I’ve been seeing a lot of invitations for Halloween Parties.  Showing up in costume is a must!  If you’re like me, you’ve been thinking about what you’ll be wearing for the big night since the weather started getting cooler and the leaves started turning.  Maybe you’re hosting a cool party for all of your favorite ghosts and goblins.  How do you turn your party into the one hot spot that everyone will want to haunt?  Our photo booth!

More than an athlete

Brooke Barton is always on the go!  She not only plays soccer and futsol, she also swims.  In addition to all that, she has two little sisters that she spends a lot of time with.  There’s something else.  When she’s not playing sports or spending time with family, you can find her spending her free time at the Valley Park Firehouse where she is training to become a First Responder.  It’s Brooke’s dream to be a firefighter.

Higher Focus had the privilege of photographing Brooke for her High School Senior Session.  We had so much fun!  Here is a behind the scenes look at our session with Brooke:

Thanks Brooke for allowing us to be your photographer.  A special thank you goes to the Valley Park Firehouse for allowing us to come in with our cameras and photograph Brooke.  We had a blast!  Thanks guys!

Professional Head Shots vs Selfies: How do you brand yourself?

More and more people are doing research online before they make a decision to do business.  When it comes to your social media profile, does your personal picture reflect your professionalism? Would people take you seriously if they looked at your profile before they picked up the phone to call you? First impressions are extremely important in business. The picture you post on your profile can ultimately lead you to making money or losing money.

Go here to view examples of professional head shots.

There are many advantages to having a professional photographer take your profile picture: proper lighting, posing, highlighting, photoshop, etc. However, the most important reason is because it communicates to your clients and prospects, “I’m a professional”.

If you schedule your professional headshot with Higher Focus Photography before Labor Day, you can save $24. Call us to book now: 636-273-6600 or contact us online by clicking here and selecting Contact Us.

The end of summer is the perfect time for family photos!

It’s “Back to School” time.  Gosh, it seems like the summer just started.  Before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here, then Christmas.  If you’re like me, you wonder, “how did it go by so fast?”  The grade school and high school kids have already started fall sports practice.  In just a few weeks, the kids who graduated high school at the beginning of summer will be heading off to college.  They’re growing up so fast!  How do you keep up?  Learn more about us by simply clicking here.

What will you wear?

What is your style?  Have you ever really thought about it?  Think about the clothes you wear.  Is there anything special about how you dress or do you just think, “I’m average”?  Your clothes say a lot about you.  Here are 3 tips from our “What to Wear Guide” to help you always look your best and have a killer photography session:

Make sure your clothes fit appropriately.  If your clothes are too tight or too baggy, it looks awkward and can be a distraction.  Tight fitting clothes can show bulges.  Loose fitting clothes can actually make you look heavier.  Wearing the right kind of clothes can make you look fabulous!

Join the Dark Side!  The fall is fast approaching and it’s the perfect time to start wearing darker colors.  Dark clothing is concealing and will make you look thinner.  Avoid wearing clothes with slogans, logos, or other distractions.  Bold stripes and large patterns can stand out and be distracting.  Instead, make it all about you!  Wear colors that go best with your complexion, hair color, and your eyes.  Wearing the right color top can make your eyes “pop” – especially on camera.

Click here to find out how to choose your best color!

Be unique.  Your clothing selections determine your personal style.  Don’t expect to be unique if you are wearing what everyone else is wearing.  Your clothing should be an extension of who YOU are.  Wearing “popular brand” t-shirts just makes you like everyone else and it’s hard to stand out when you are just one of the crowd.  Make sure your personality shines through!

Bonus tip:  Don’t be afraid to cover up.  If there is something about your body you don’t like, cover it up!  I am amazed at how many people will wear something sleeveless and talk about how they hate their upper arms.  If you are uncomfortable with the way you look, it will show on the camera.

Before the day of your photo shoot, try on your clothing selections in front of a mirror.  Make sure you’re happy with how they look and fit.  There is nothing worse than showing up to your photography session and discovering the awesome outfit you chose doesn’t fit, is wrinkled, or has a big stain!  A little planning goes a long way!
