Braids & Flowers

Learn how and where to buy and place artificial hair and fake flowers. Then, Sue shows you how to easily place them into your client’s hair. This knowledge helps create beautiful and emotional images for your clients. From tiny to large blooms, the power of bobby pins, and the accessibility of hairpieces, Sue will show you how a little bit of budget and craftiness will go a long way for your next shoot.

Key Points:

  • Do not feel like you need to go out and buy loads of flowers if you are just starting your studio! Sue did not do this when she did not have the money to spend on it in the beginning.
  • Flowers like this do not need to be expensive. You can find them at different craft stores like Michael’s or Joanne Fabrics. Prices will vary widely — sometimes as cheap as $2.00 a bunch if you find a sale and up to $49 for real silk flowers.
  • Just be careful with the cheaper flowers because they tend to be shinier. You want to make sure you cut the light on them to reduce the shine while you are shooting them.
  • If you want to have really cool braids with flowers in your client’s hair, you don’t have to have your hairstylist spend hours creating it. We usually don’t have that kind of time. Instead, you can buy synthetic hair that is pre-braided or you can do the braids yourself.
  • You can easily attach the braids to your client’s hair with bobby pins to create a completely different look.
  • Then you can add mini roses into the hair to create another different look.
  • Again, you don’t have to spend a lot of money on this. But, the investment you do make will pay you back again and again when you create beautiful images using them!

What Our Members Are Saying

Sue is not just a mentor, in the area of photography; she's a life coach in the area of living. Simply put, The Portrait System, was the best investment I have made into myself, and my business, since it began! David Lee
The Portrait System allowed me to grow from hobbyist with a borrowed camera and a dream, to professional portrait photographer with a six-figure business. There is no way I would be here without her education. Cat Ford-Coates
The Portrait System has given me ALL of the tools needed to take me from a "shoot and burn" photographer making less then $200 a session to a portrait photographer with a studio and over a $1200 average and growing in less than 4 months. Ashley Lindsey
The Portrait System has been the single-most impactful thing I've incorporated into growing my business, and in many ways, my life! Andrew Knowles
Building a successful and sustainable photography business is no secret anymore. The Portrait System provides you with every tool you need to master your craft, how to market and sell and overall how to become the best version of yourself. You just have to do the work! Ursula Schmitz
By far the best investment you will ever make for your business and for yourself. I will never let my subscription lapse. Never. Liz Wikstrom Barlak
In my photography journey, I have tried many educational platforms, but none felt as comprehensive as The Portrait System. Without a doubt, if not for Sue and her teachings, I would not be seeing the level of business success that I am seeing today. Neon Howe
