Fountain City Studios has had the great opportunity to team up with Kansas City photo stylist Caitlin Fore. And she agreed to write a blog for us, after a recent project. Check out her insight, the photos and video below.
Caitlin Fore – Kansas City Photo Stylist Guest Photography Blog
As a photo stylist I love getting to make my clients feel great about themselves through the way that they dress. So, when Fountain City Studios reached out to me to help them create an even more amazing experience for their clients, I jumped head first! Josh and Todd are amazing photographers and have a great eye for photography and thought it would be super special to have their clients have access to a stylist for family photo shoots.
We worked with the Olson family to create the most beautiful family photos.
First I sent over a little survey to get a feel for what the family was wanting the photos to look like. I always want to make sure everyone’s personalities shine through, while coordinating together. In this survey I ask for everyone’s names, ages, and sizes – don’t worry it’s all strictly confidential!:)
Once I collect their information and style preferences, I start online shopping to see what is available. I collect anything and everything I think they might like on a Pinterest board. Then I use Polyvore to create the outfits to see how they will actually look together. I then send over the outfit ideas to the family to get initial feedback from Mom and Dad. Once we decide on everything we like, then I go and grab everything for the family photo shoot.
Day of the shoot, I arrive with everything steamed and ready for everyone to put on. I then assist the photographers with where everyone is standing, how the clothes look on everyone, style hair if it needs it, and keep the energy fun and exciting too! It’s such a blast working with the Fountain City Studios team! They really care about all of their clients and work tirelessly to ensure every image is just what the family wants!
I just loved working with the Olson family on this shoot and love how the final photos turned out!
Thanks again to Todd, Josh and Alisa for making me feel right at home.
