Carlyn & Michael – Creative Business Portraits

Portrait of Carlyn by Lumacraft Photography

Professional financial advisers (and partners in life) Carlyn and Michael are redeveloping the website for their business. They want it to have a certain vibe, and want their portraits on display there to convey it. When I showed them the vintage industrial spaces at 270 Sherman, the building where my studio is housed, we knew that we were onto something.

Once again, Virginia of Beauty on the Go was my able makeup and hair styling collaborator for the project.
