Do you need new high quality photos, but don’t have a lot of time? Well, there is a new photo studio in Orange County. They are fast and furious. Within ten minutes, I got nearly one hundred photos from BLINK INC at Fashion Island, and that is all I needed. This post will be photo heavy, because I want to show you some of the different styles they were able to capture. These are some of my favorite photos from the shoot and they are unfiltered. You’ll also want to check out my tips, and the special reader offer below!
Photo with Friends
You can be as serious as you want or as silly as you want. Do a jumping picture and laugh about it later. My tip is if you do a jump photo, make sure you tuck your shirt in. Coordinating outfits with friends is fun, but not necessary. I just asked them to bring two outfits just in case. The dressier the better. They don’t have props so if you need them, bring them. Either way, they are fun, fun, fun!
Okay my session took longer than ten minutes, because I wanted to do a wardrobe change or two. Zo’e, my photographer, gave me some fun poses to try and I love them! My recommendation is to dress up instead of down. You will feel better and it shows in your photos. Get your mani’s and pedi’s done ahead of time, because at times, I was focused on that one chipped nail and didn’t want it to show up in my pictures.
Back to School
Types of Shoots
They will also shoot graduation, announcements, holidays, birthday, engagement, products, and pets. I’m thinking of taking the children back in their Halloween costumes or family photos for holiday cards. You’ll also want to know that they only shoot on white backgrounds.
I thought the overall experience and value was pretty good. I love my fashion ones as well as the ones of my kids and my friends. The setting fee starts at $25 for 10 minutes and if you need longer, you’ll want to tell them ahead of time, because if they are busy, they will have you reschedule. Option to buy is $10 for each digital photo or Buy All for $225 from the ten minute shoot. See their website for for pricing on longer shoots and Buy All prices will also vary.
Ten minutes was all that I needed, but I can imagine it will take longer to do large groups and wardrobe change. I usually have a difficult time getting photos of my kids looking at the camera so I was highly impressed that she got several. My friends have asked me if I was modeling for something. I wasn’t, but was so proud to hear that. I am happy to offer the promotion below for my readers, because BLINK INC wants you to try their services too!
