Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.
A. Our studio finds ourselves creatively framing Graduating seniors, maternity, newborns, infants, toddlers, families, couples/engagement, pets, musicians, those attending formal dances, glamour, head shots, and the beauty of nature for products.
Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.
A. BLL Studio has been on their toes this past year. We've been out on location for several family sessions, been roaming the quaint charms of old Town Folsom and the Powerhouse for a recent Senior Session as well as an upcoming band and exploring the Vernal Pools area for a maternity session.
We've roamed the upper Folsom trails and natural outdoor settings to complete two additional Graduating Senior Sessions, an artistic session as well as a Family session last summer. For our Senior Sessions we had a makeup artist and hair stylist on location for a more dramatic/fashionable presentation.
We finalized a private Engagement Session that turned out exquisite, shot in Folsom by the American River and bike trails. Whenever on location, we move around with our team and clientele to afford us variable lighting, tones and textures and the natural outdoor beauty our area is known for to enhance the end result of our photographic sessions. We love framing the romanticism of our newly engaged couples!! A great opportunity to design and create a Guest Wedding Album for the upcoming wedding with the images from the engagement session.
We thoroughly enjoyed a follow up session of a one-year-old birthday/cake smash/Family session of a charming young man we've photographed when he was in his mom's tummy for her maternity session as well as his newborn session. We went out to Loomis, our client's stomping grounds from years back, to frame his budding charms as well as these irreplaceable memories. We love to customize and cater to our client's unique, personalized vision to make all of our sessions artistically beautiful.
When booking we usually set our times for very early morning or in the early evening with a three hour window before the sun sets for those warm, romantic tones.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. BLL Photographic Studio brings to each personalized session a creative fine art edge. It's not just about walking away with beautiful imagery but also about the unique experience of each session that leaves the client eager to return to frame other timeless memories. Creative artistry at its finest. If you can imagine it we can help to create it.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Our studio loves to create, as well as the satisfication of leaving our clients touched by our imagery. Sometimes we don't realize how fleeting life can be until we glance back upon these priceless moments that stir yesterday's enchantment. We love framing these memories.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. Our studio is a proud member of PPA, Professional Photographer's Association of America, insured as well as having the required permits to shoot on location within the local park systems.
