Marlton, NJ Colonial – NJ Real Estate Photographer

It has been a really busy winter, and we’re apparently headed for some major snowfall in the next few days.  Between the cold weather, the holidays, and the new year, we’ve been very busy in the studio with everything from commercial portrait sessions, headshots, newborn photography, and cake smashes.  However, it’s really starting to look like our real estate photography business is starting to kick into gear for 2015 as well.  We’ve already had several sessions in the past few weeks, and we have a bunch on the books for the coming weeks.  It’s always nice to have a change of pace, and I’ve enjoyed photographing a number of really cool homes recently.  One of these houses was a nice colonial located in The Meadows of Willow Ridge neighborhood in Marlton, NJ.

Since we live in Marlton, the house was right down the road from us… couldn’t be closer!  It made for an easy trip to stop in & get some photos.  Located in a really nice neighborhood, this house was terrific, and it had some great features to photograph. The agent was a friend of ours who we had done headshots for a year or so ago.  We’ve since photographed a number of listings for the folks on her real estate team, and it was really great to see her again.  She gave me a quick tour of the home, and then it was down to business.  The home had some nice, spacious rooms, but I’m pretty sure my favorite part of the session was kicking up the fireplace for some warm, inviting shots of the living room.

Altogether, we were able to get a really nice set of photos for the agent to market the home with.  Here’s a handful of the shots from the session…

Ehsan – South Jersey Portrait Photographer

Ehsan contacted us in early December 2014 about setting up a portrait session in early January 2015.  A civil engineer, he mentioned that he had just been nominated for a prestigious award, and he was to be featured in an article in an upcoming magazine publication.  He mentioned that he would need to submit some images to be published, and he had been looking for a photographer who could replicate the specific look he wanted to emulate in his images.  His goal was to have the images look very polished and professional, but stylized similar to the images you might see in major publications like GQ or Esquire.

I was certain we could set him up with a session that would nail exactly the look he wanted, and he even sent me a number of image samples for what he would like his images to look like.  It was a cool project in my opinion, and we’ve actually had some really interesting portrait sessions lately.  A few weeks prior I was commissioned to re-create an image of a client’s grandfather taken in Iran, circa 1973, and now, I was being asked to provide a series of editorial-style images.  Very cool!

We set a date in early January, and I spent some time planning out a small shot list that I would use as sort of a “jumping off point” for the session.  It’s always good to go in as prepared as possible, and then be flexible and adapt to any changes along the way.  As a photographer, there’s sometimes a delicate balance between being prepared and ensuring that you don’t overlook inspiration or creative ideas on the spot.

Within the first minutes of the session, Ehsan & I were having a great time and producing images that he loved.  He had brought along his girlfriend, and she was both enjoying spending time with us in the studio and the look of the images that I was showing them on the back of my camera.  Overall, it was a pleasure to work with them both, and we got some really cool editorial portraits.  Here’s some of the images from Ehsan’s session!

Josette – South Jersey Headshot Photographer

Last year was terrific, and we can hardly believe it’s already 2015!  Time really flew by, and we’re looking forward to another awesome year.  While 2015 is already off to a strong start, I really enjoyed some of the sessions we had in the latter part of 2014, even up into the final weeks.  Even through the holidays, we were really booked up and enjoyed working with some terrific new folks.  One of these individuals was Josette, the Quality Director at a pharmaceutical company over in Philadelphia.

Josette reached out to us towards the end of November, and we were glad to be able to squeeze her in for a headshot session.  She brought an awesome personality and a super smile along with her.  I just remember really enjoying working with her.  She stopped by with a few outfits, and we decided that the light blue, buttoned-down dress shirt she had brought would look best.  I can remember joking with her about a whole bunch of different things, and she really rolled with the punches.  Josette was a super cool subject, and we definitely had some good laughs during her session.

There were a ton of great shots from Josette’s headshot session, and I even thought that one of the images I took while adjusting the lighting came out great!  At the beginning of the session, we always take a few moments, once we’re acquainted with our clients, to really tweak the lighting for each individual.  The goal is to accentuate their best qualities and provide the most flattering look possible.  Everyone has different features, so headshots shouldn’t all have the same cooking-cutter approach to the lighting setups.  We truly believe that this, along with the other parts of our custom approach, help to make us a cut above the rest.  Our sessions are always very custom and personalized… the way things should be!

Here’s some of the shots from Josette’s headshot photography session!

2014 Headshot Photography – NJ Headshot Photographer

You may have already seen some of our other end of year posts, but 2014 just wouldn’t be complete without a post about our legendary headshots.  Twenty-fourteen sure flew by… hard to believe it’s already drawing to a close!  However, it was a really incredible year, especially for our headshot photography!  As is fast becoming the tradition around here, I put together a storyboard showing off as many of our headshot sessions this year as possible.

This year, we had the pleasure of working with new and long-standing loyal clients alike.  I had the chance to interact with folks from all over… some driving for hours just to be photographed!  I met tons of interesting people… doctors, lawyers, real estate agents, nuclear engineers stationed in Chernobyl, financial advisors, aspiring actors, models, CEOs of multi-million dollar companies, C-suite executives from billion dollar enterprises in NYC… You name it… we photographed them, and it was incredible!  (And this is just headshots… it doesn’t include all of the other portraiture we did!)   I can’t describe how much I enjoyed working with these folks, getting them feeling comfortable, and capturing them with genuine, authentic expressions!

Here’s as many headshots from the year as I could get to comfortably fit into the storyboard, and a big thanks to all of the folks we worked with!  See you in 2015!

2014 Real Estate Photography – NJ Real Estate Photographer

Wow!  Time sure flies, and tomorrow is already New Years Eve Day!  We had an awesome 2014, and we hope you have all had a great year as well.  Twenty-fourteen was a heck of a year here at S18 Photography, and we really packed in a ton of sessions with some amazing clients.   It’s becoming sort of a tradition for us to put together some massive collages / contact sheets with images from our sessions to cap off the year.  You can check out our headshot & real estate photography boards from last year at the following link.  This year, we put together a few boards as well with images from our various types of sessions.

Regarding our real estate photography, 2014 was a banner year, and we photographed some of the coolest dwellings you can  imagine.  We photographed everything from colorful gentleman’s horse farms and Spanish missions to center-city apartments and ultra-luxurious French chateau mansions (the latter for folks from HGTV).  We saw everything while traveling throughout South Jersey and the Philadelphia metro area.  And, this is just our real estate photography.  It doesn’t include our much-higher-end architectural & interiors photography offerings which took us even farther.  You can find out more about them here!

It would be an understatement to say that this was an incredible year for our real estate photography!  Here’s a storyboard for 2014 with as many sessions as we could cram onto it!  Enjoy, and we look forward to seeing you in 2015!  (We’ve got a number of really great things up our sleeve, guaranteed to wow our clients and make 2015 even better!)
