Fashion & Food Photoshoot with Little Laws • PMQ 元創方

Fashion Photoshoot with Little Laws • At PMQ, Hong Kong

I know I’ve been all about PMQ lately; my last blog post was about the Hermès exhibition there… but what really is this place with the mystical acronym? I went to find out more with London fashion and lifestyle blogger Little Laws.

PMQ stands for “Police Married Quarters”, as it used to house married police officers in the 1950s until 2000. After being left empty for a few years, the site reopened earlier this year as a new hub for creatives. The main structure and look of the apartment buildings were preserved, including the turquoise and white color scheme. I know that the location of PMQ makes the land a piece of prime real estate, and I’m glad that the non-profit organization behind it is giving priority for local brands and artists to establish themselves there.

We started off our visit with lunch at Isono Eatery & Bar, a restaurant serving dishes from Spain, Italy and France and has a glamorous industrial look to its interiors. We split a set menu of 2 starters, 1 main and a dessert and also started with a platter of Iberico Ham, Lomito and Salami. Yay for sharing! Also pictured here is the beef tartare with a Japanese egg yolk and truffle mayonnaise… so rich and delectable.

Maternity Portraits • Serena & Ian • San Francisco

This maternity portrait session was photographed back in May, and now Serena and Ian have an adorable baby boy! I can’t wait to meet their little guy, but first I’d love to share their sweet maternity photos.

I’ve known Serena for quite a few years, since the time I worked in a lab and before I became a photographer. She and Ian have an amazing, positive outlook towards life and people, and it’s hard not to love hanging out with them. This photoshoot was no exception.

We started off at Dolores Park, near where they lived in the Mission District in San Francisco. I always encourage my portrait clients to pick a location that has an emotional significance, and to Serena and Ian, Dolores Park was their stomping ground. It also provided a stunning view of the San Francisco skyline!

It was Serena’s brilliant idea of tying a blue ribbon around her pregnant belly as a prop for the maternity photos. What a great present they were bringing to this world!

Executive Headshots • Bruce Stuart • Downtown San Francisco

I had the pleasure of working with Bruce Stuart again to update his headshots; he was part of a family whose family portraits I’ve photographed 2 years ago, and it’s so nice to work with him closely for his solo portrait!

It’s amazing to learn about Bruce’s accomplishments on Morgan Stanley’s website – his career progressed from his graduation with honors at Cornell University, the completion of his law degree at Albany Law School, then 14 years working for Wells Fargo before his current position as Vice President and Financial Advisor at Morgan Stanley.

For Bruce’s business portrait session, he wanted to focus on creating a confident, trust-worthy image to convey to his prospective clients. Before the session we discussed his desired image in length, then through the headshot session I walked through different prompts and exercises to bring out Bruce’s natural confidence. Also, he was especially proud of his weight loss after 4 months working diligently with a personal trainer and nutritionist. He looked fantastic and I needed to highlight his hard work in his headshots!

Here are 2 of the 3 final headshots that Bruce selected from our session. The first, horizontal business portrait was taken outdoors at the Embarcadero Center, with the planted bamboo as a backdrop that complemented the warm tones of Bruce’s red tie. In the second photo here, we went to the 2nd floor of the Ferry Building, where the windows and lights created a rich texture for Bruce’s portrait. I’ll save his third business portrait to post some other time!

It’s a wonderfully satisfying feeling to have connected with Bruce to capture his executive headshots, and to see the results of our session applied everywhere – on Bruce’s work website, his LinkedIn profile, and a print ad for his professional work. Thank you for a wonderful session, Bruce!
