Most of the clients contacting me for a photographic shooting in Venice are couples, but among them the person more motivated is more often than not the woman. But these services can be well integrated into a family vacation photography session.
So here I'm presenting to them some ideas of beauty portraits than can be arranged during a short holiday in Venice or in Milan (where I also work).
It is advisable to involve a make up artist in Venice but it is not essential.
Most of my audience is international so I assume that studio shootings could be done in their own country as well and I present activities involving the background as part of the story to tell.
This is a classic, we start with light, enjoy the magic atmosphere of a venetian sunset and end with night portraits a big variety in just a couple of hours.
Especially if you plan to use your hotel room as a location. During Fall, Winter and Spring it is ok and practical. I tend to avoid the warmest hours during summer because, well let's say that the impact of high temperatures on most paople make images less appeling.
This can be an excellent option, typically way less people and in fall and winter mist will allow for amazing results.
It may be more suited to early risers as I'd value a rested and happy face in the afternoon more than a sleepy one with a better light. But if the time is not a challenge, well that's Venice at its best.
