Purple Palette Portraits for Colie



The blog contains little bits of my life, my passions, and my work. I update it daily so there is always something new to come see.

Have you ever heard of Purple Palette Portraits? Well, I haven’t either. However, I have this friend who is OBSESSED with the color purple. Not the movie “The Color Purple,” the ACTUAL color purple. Actually, she has a 2nd Instagram account dedicated to her favorite color.

We shot these Purple Palette Portraits in a Cleveland hotel during a recent visit to Ohio. I’ll share more about how I shot these images in a hotel room in a later post. It was quite the setup – minimal but efficient. I can also share how I got the purple palette for the portraits with the actual lighting. So, stay tuned for that!

Colie and I know each other because she is the Managing Director of Marketing for my biggest commercial client, Arrow Senior Living. She is a little rockstar at marketing things and project management, so we get to work on a lot of projects together (like this Cribs episode).

I shot a variety of lighting setups, as you will see below (and in the rest of the images in this post), and she brought a variety of different vibes, from edgy to vintage to comfy/cozy. What a fun photo shoot!

Give her a follow in Instagram, and come back for more of her photos!

Talk to you soon,

What sets Michelin Starred restaurants apart from others? What's the difference between an authentic Louis Vuitton piece and a knockoff? Like these iconic brands, Benfield Photography understands the importance of delivering world-class service with attention to the smallest details.
