SILVA PORTRAITS STUDIO SESSIONS 2017

Hello Gorgeous!

My name is Tina DaSilva and I am Portrait Photographer. I am passionate about connecting with people and capturing raw beauty and emotion. I am a creative artist, and am devoted to making my vision the best portrait experience of your life. I pretty much find beauty in everything and am all about the details and making sure everything is perfect.

You will find me in my element with every aspect of each shoot, from the lead up to the session with making flower crowns, beautiful tulle skirts, hand painting one of a kind canvas backdrops to compliment every beautiful shoot, selecting gorgeous dresses and accessories to help style the set.

SEEKING GORGEOUS FACES

I am rebranding everything and require gorgeous new images to launch this new venture. No modelling experience is required as I will provide direction during the shoot. Models must be down to earth and easy going - confidence is a bonus. Previous clients are very welcome to be part of this rebranding project - I adore everyone I shoot and love catching up with previous clients.

A Talent Release Form must be signed during the session which will allow me to use the images for marketing. Please note I am NOT a modelling agency, nor do I work for a clothing label/fashion magazine etc. However if you choose to purchase images from your child's shoot then you are more than welcome to use these images to help your child build their portfolio should they wish to pursue a modelling career.

1. PREP BEFORE SHOOT

Listed below are a few KEY steps that will help make your session run very smoothly.

BOYS

As boys generally feel more comfortable in their own clothes I ask parents to bring a good pair of denim or dress shorts and a plain neutral coloured shirt is always a winner. Plus, if your boys are ok to go shirtless I love those shots too. Please avoid clothes with logos. Boys can style their hair however they like.

I keep the photoshoots as natural as possible, and my objective is to try and get as many natural expressions as possible. Sometimes I am a big kid at heart and can be quite the jokester...hey, whatever it takes to get these shots and I'm happy.

GIRLS

WARDROBE - Feel free to bring your sparkles, favourite dress, shirt, skirt etc. Alternatively, I have some super pretty dresses and tulle skirts which are always begging to be worn, I also encourage each girl to bring something they have that makes them feel beautiful. This way we can get a variety of different styles. I am a serious hoarder when it comes to collecting pretty bling, so I have plenty of accessories.

MAKE UP - Older girls aged between 13-18yrs are welcome to wear make up if this will help boost confidence. Puberty can be cruel and pimples are all part of growing up. I ask that if make up is worn it is kept to a minimum. I want every girl to know they are beautiful in the skin they are in and what make up doesn't cover I have Photoshop as my back up.

Younger girls aged between 8-12yrs are encouraged to come make up free.

NAILS - Please remove all nail polish prior to the session.

SKIN - Please take care of your skin as I will not photograph people who are sunburnt. Unfortunately there is no easy fix in Photoshop, this takes hours of extra editing time and that is ultimately charged back to the client . Prevention is better than cure, stay sun safe.

HAIR - Hair naturally frames the face so I ask that girls come with clean dry hair, not tied up. I love styling hair, so if needed I will have the hair curler/straightener and bobby pins ready.

2. THE SHOOT

The session time can vary for each child for a number or reasons for this I ask that you set aside two hours for the session.

Every child is different and therefore no two sessions will run the same. I will provide direction for the entire shoot and cater the poses for each child. I use hand painted backdrops to create a high end art feel to help style the shoot.

The photoshoot will take place in my home Studio located in Gunn. The address will be provided once the session fee has been received.

3. THE REVEAL

Selecting photos for your reveal is one of the most important aspects of my job and is something I take such care with. A few days after your session I invite you back to the Studio to view your beautiful photos that I have carefully selected and edited to perfection. From here you can choose the images you wish to purchase and products that will showcase your gorgeous images.

"Always be your own kind of beautiful"

4. PRICES + PRODUCTS

Making sure the quality of my brand doesn't end when the shoot does I have a few options for showcasing your images and can customise a collection to suit your needs. Print collections are extremely popular and are displayed in a variety of options including gorgeous folio boxes, albums and wall art (including canvas and metal prints). My digital collections start at $550.

"NO BEAUTY SHINES BRIGHTER THAN THAT OF A GOOD HEART."
