Photoshoots in the Brooklyn, NYC studio by portrait photographer Petra Romano.

Having a Concept is Essential

Hearing the stories of people I’m about to photograph is very important not just for me but primarily for them. The more I know about them, the better concepts we can come up with for their portraits.

Let me tell you a bit about Kalin Brown. She is an aspiring model. We wanted to come up with three concepts. I listened to her story and learned she plays violin. Instantly we had our first concept.

She also wanted images with a bit of bohemian flavor and use flowers.

And the third concept was to photograph outdoors and to aim for a softer, dreamier feel.

What is your story? And how would you like to be photographed?

Not-an-Ordinary Youtube Star(s)

Just like I photographed mother-daughter a few months ago, I got to do it again. Only this time it was two sisters with their mom. If they seem familiar to you, you most likely met them on Eva Danielas Kitchen youtube channel. I especially enjoyed a video of Eva and her brother cooking Patacones Rellenos a.k.a Stuffed Plantains. They make the cooking look so easy and delicious, I myself am looking forward to cook some! And please, believe me, I am a I’ll-just-make-a-baked-potato-today kind of the person… Make sure you stop by her channel and get some inspiration and/or learn to cook some exotic meal too!

Photographing Variety

I enjoy shooting variety of clothes, locations, and most importantly moods and emotions of my “models”.

Ms. I. is a mom of a young one who finally found the time for her and herself only. During the shoot she confessed: “I cannot believe I am actually doing something for myself! This is so relaxing!”

Namaste

Ms. M. is such a beautiful woman inside-out. She is a great yoga teacher and an amazingly kind person who is not afraid to let go and have fun. See for yourself!

Mother Daughter Glamour Session

I so enjoyed this mother daughter glamour session I photographed recently. I loved seeing them both having a great time. The mom appreciated my constant help with posing and the 18-year-old daughter couldn’t get enough of modeling in front of my camera. The best part is they both got the chance to shine on their own as well as together.

Celebrating the Boudoir Shoot

Since this is my very first post I thought I could celebrate it with the one of the very first boudoir shoots I photographed. Ms K. is an amazing woman who made my job seem easy by being beautifully confident, self aware and brave. It’s a pleasure to feature her right here.
