New Light Portraiture is the combined venture of Lara Salzwedel of Rural Canyon, and Sianne Jones of Facets – Beauty and Skin Care. It is about using the art of capturing natural light, and the artistry of makeup, in order for women to see themselves in a new and beautiful light. Both Lara and Sianne are exited to journey with each woman as they explore aspects of their beauty both inside and out. It is Lara’s aim to make visible the inner beauty of each woman she photographs.
All New Light Portraiture is shot in natural light and can be shot at the photographer’s natural light studio or at an agreed upon outdoor location. Travel further than 10kms from the studio will be charged at R4,25 per km. Both Lara and Sianne will meet with each client before the session in order to get to know the client and to try to establish what the client hopes to gain from the session, and to discuss hair and outfits.
New Light Mini Session:
Mini sessions are an hour and half long, photographed at a single location, with a single outfit worn by the client. Makeup will take 45 mins and the photo shoot the other 45 mins. The client will choose 15 photos which they will get in high res format on a USB disk.
New light standard session:
The standard sessions are approximately two and a half hours long, with the option of two locations. The client may change outfits two to three times. Minor adjustments can be made to hair styling. Make up will take approximately 1 hour and the photo shoot about an hour and a half. The session can be photographed at two separate locations, one indoors and the second outdoors. The client will choose 30 photos which they will get in high res format on a USB disk.
Each client will use her hairstylist of choice so that their hair is done shortly before the session.
Custom sessions can be discussed and will be quoted separately from the above prices.
Should a client want prints, photo books or canvas prints please discuss this with Lara.
The studio is situated on the border of Roodepoort and Randburg in Gauteng.
