The Black Locust Experience​


Every photo shoot is a three-step process, starting with ideas inspired by you. Together, we'll choose a location and a photographic style, cull through your closet and borrow or purchase pieces to complete the look. From hair and makeup to wardrobe and poses, you'll be comfortable with each step of the shoot. In the weeks following, Black Locust fine tunes the best images to share during your Image Reveal Session. You're going to look great, feel great and love the final product.



Each photo shoot is unique to the individual being photographed. Through a few conversations, the Black Locust team will ask about your style icons, what’s important to you and what you love about yourself, and from your answers, they will gather ideas tailored to you and your personal style. Inspiration boards will be created for all the different elements of the photo shoot, from which you'll choose your favorite looks.  
During a casual styling consultation, Catherine and Megan (Photographer and Creative Coordinator), will meet with you at your home to choose apparel and accessories for your photo shoot. Because this session is all about you, they will often use pieces from your existing wardrobe for the shoot, sometimes shopping for a few items to complete the looks they create for you.

Being a little nervous the day of the shoot is normal. You will be guided through every step, from what to pack to how to pose.  During the photo shoot, you’ll be surrounded by a supportive team in a comfortable environment. You’ll receive an uncommonly memorable VIP experience that includes professional hair and makeup design, wardrobe selection, and photographic elements that lend themselves to your identity and personal style. During this session, you’ll enjoy a transformative experience that honors your beautiful journey.

A private image reveal session will take place at the studio a week or so after your photo shoot. While enjoying light beverages and snacks, you will review your images and choose personalized products to create the perfect, timeless keepsakes.
