GET TO KNOW THE STUDIO
BEHIND THE SCENES
Do you wonder what a shoot with MSP is like? Check out this behind the scenes look at a day with Melody Smith. Melody is an international award winning double master photographer specializing in contemporary and fine art portraiture.
Spend the day in our glamorous studio being treated like royalty. Our studio is located in Historic Old Towne Petersburg, Virginia with private parking located directly behind our studio. Our studio is over 3000 square feet of PURE luxury and includes multiple shooting areas, backgrounds, and lighting.
DESIGN & CONCEPT
Your session will be carefully designed from posing to wardrobe. We choose the most flattering posing intended to slim, shape, and accentuate your best features. Share with us your favorite poses and wardrobe from our contemporary portrait pinterest board and we will take care of the rest! Your style, our expertise!
HAIR & MAKE UP
Every session includes a beautiful make over complete with hair styling and professional make up. We use high end luxury products to create a flawless magazine style finish to your look.
Make sure that you PLAN A NIGHT OUT! You will look incredible after your session!
Our studio houses a vast and glamorous wardrobe with over 2000 garments, props, and accessories ranging in size from 00-24. Each session is designed with up to 7 unique looks from casual to glamorous. Our wardrobe is constantly expanding as we purchase and discover new looks for each of our clients sessions. Please note, we do not provide wardrobe for men/boys at this time.
POSING & DIRECTION
Every client is fully directed with posing and expression from the toes to the tip of the head. I know what beauty is and how to find it in every single person I have ever met. Everything from the way your hair lays, how your figure is accentuated, to getting the sparkle in your eyes, is given complete direction.
You don't have to do anything but simply follow my lead!
