Glamour Portraiture | Scarborough Maine | Miss Heidi
Getting glam for portraits
by Dean for Brittany Rae Photography
I first met Heidi back when I lived in South Portland and was super lazy, but needed a hair cut - her salon was directly across from our apartment. Eleven years later, I still go to see her and drive 30 minutes out of my way to continue to meet with her. She is awesome at what she does, but she is also a genuine and great soul that you just want as a part of your life. She is an amazing hairdresser, and an even more amazing woman, and I highly recommend her. We were chatting one day while she was doing my hair, and she mentioned that she wanted some headshots done. This was serendipitous, as we had just opened up our studio in Pine Point. A couple weeks later, Heidi came in, enjoyed a relaxing glass of wine (for Heidi) we went to work!
Heidi let me know that she had never had professional Glamour Portraiture images taken before. She brought along a friend for moral support, but she ended up seeming totally at ease in front of the camera (maybe the wine helped?). We started in the studio, went outside to play around the property, then made it back inside for some more traditional and backlit portraiture. The connection to the camera was evident and her smile was infectious as we worked through all the different poses. She even trusted me on a few poses that I know felt awkward, but they looked amazing! After the reveal, her favorite three images was a perfect mix of studio, backlighting, and outdoor natural light portraits.
Check out a few of her favorites from her Glamour Portraiture session below. If you’re interested in Heidi and her as a hair stylist in South Portland, check out their Facebook Page here: Ocean Waves Salon.
