New haircut, new profilephoto!
To celebrate the start of the summer I organised together with hairdressers Aukje and Delia a fun little event at Huis van Groen in The Hague. We offered our clients a possibility to combine our services: a haircut and colour followed by a mini photoshoot!
We all three have the same ideas and approaches regarding our work: we aim to bring out the natural beauty of our clients. First Aukje and Delia discussed the wishes and needs of the clients to be able to create hairstyles which suit their personality and lifestyle. Then they washed, coloured, cut, and styled the hair. They use only natural, pure products which are good for you and good for the nature. No more chemicals in haircare! When everything was finished it was time for the photo!
As for me, I always work with natural light. I pay attention at the strength, direction, quality of the light and work around with possibilities and challenges it offers to me. My goal is to create photos which are happy, natural and timeless. One of the most important things is to build up a relationship with the client, even in these mini photography sessions I pay a lot of attention in trying to get the people relax and enjoy themselves. We photographed indoors and outdoors and while taking different shots I showed the photos to the clients. This gives the client a chance to say what they like and don’t like about a photo, then I can adjust where needed!
It was lovely to work together with Aukje and Delia. We had so much fun and the morning flew by. The atmosphere at Huis van Groen is relaxed and spending time there feels like being on a mini holiday. The French brocante interior, good coffee and tea, carrot cake baked by Aukje all complemented the experience. We have people asking about the next event already, maybe in Autumn when everybody is back from holidays and days are getting shorter, we’ll organise it again!
But for now, summer first!
