Brittany Putnam | Chic of the Week

Congrats Brittany Putnam of Brittany Putnam Photography!

With the dramatic lighting and beautiful subject, we had to feature you as the Chic of the Week.



A little bit about Brittany:


chic2selfDSC_0207 I’m a fashion/beauty photographer for natural and spirited people. I believe that the nitty gritty is just as beautiful as the soft and pretty. 

I primarily work with models – both aspiring and working. I love teaching models the basics such as expression, natural body movement, and progressing it to a professional level. It is such an honor to be part of their journey and watch them grow. 

In addition to helping models, I have been building my own editorial and beauty portfolio. I spend the summer in NYC learning from some amazing fashion photographers as well as working with some of the modeling agencies there. I have always dreamed of having my images grace the glossy pages of magazines, and that is what I am working toward.

Image Stats:

This image was taken using a constant light source, an Arri HMI that simulates natural light. There was no fill to show how dramatic it can get.

Seniors want to be totally unique while being like everyone else. It takes a minute to really decipher what that means but once I did, I wanted to look for ways to implement the idea into the senior division at Leah Remillét Photography.  Enter; The Senior BOGO Sale!


With my Senior BOGO Option, Seniors can book their Leah Remillét Senior Session with their best friend (how fun does that sound),  making the whole experience that much more fun, and giving me another client I get to work with!  After the session they still each get their own ordering appointment which means my sale just doubled and they just had a totally unique experience while feeling the safety of being just like their best friend.


I came up with this idea almost 20 years ago! It all happened back when I had my own Senior pictures done.  I was going to go by myself.  With no parent to take me, I was feeling nervous and unsure so I begged my best friend to come along to the studio with me. I felt so much more confident through the whole process because my best friend was there.  She helped me pick my clothes and then smiled reassuringly and set my mind at ease that I looked good in front of that big scary film camera…  And at the end of the session we got a couple pictures of the two of us together.  I remember how special I felt showing off my senior pictures that also had my best friend in a few!


I offer the same opportunity to my Senior clients but with a high experience twist that The Leah Remillét Brand is known for! The girls love it!  The parent’s love it! And I love it!!  I get two clients in one sitting (sometimes the second client wasn’t even on my booking radar before), we have twice the fun, but then I still have a personal sales appointment with the senior, mom and dad to bring the experience and the sale back home!


Give it a try! The next time you have a client call to schedule their senior session, suggest scheduling a BOGO senior session where they can split the Session fee but have twice the fun!
