Fabulous at Four! Birthday Pictures with Cognito Studios Photography Abuja

The first thing we noticed about Debbie when we arrived at the studio for this shoot, was how authentically beautiful she is... But then, an apple rarely falls far from the tree. She has her mum to thank for that.. Mum did a wonderful job of make up, styling and transferring of good genes. Second is that she is a natural in front of the camera.. At the tender age of 4. So this was a really simple, fun and effortless shoot. 

Happy 4th birthday Debbie, may you flourish like a palm tree and blossom like a 🌹 rose.

Photo Sessions at Cognito Studios Photography

Hi everyone,

It has been a while we posted here and we apologize for the long silence. But someone once said, "work hard in silence; let success make the noise". Indeed we have been busy. Since April, we moved to a new studio located at Ajose Adigun street, opposite Lebrex plaza, Utako, just about two blocks away from our old studio at Cherry Hill plaza.

The new studio is bigger and better, more comfortable and better equipped. We can host larger groups of people easily, like families who want a group portrait, acting or musical crews, etc. On the first day   after moving, the studio was packed! Almost like people had been waiting for us to move.

Also the new place is more accessible. For us better access holds the promise of being able to do more of what we love to do, which is adding value to lives through creating images.

In another post, I will share photos of the new place. For now enjoy these few random images from recent sessions at the studio.

Portrait Photography Sessions at Cognito Studios Abuja

Portrait photography aims to display the expression, personality, and mood of the subject. The focus of the photo is usually the person’s face, although the entire body and the background may be included.

The quality of a portrait photo relies on the photographer’s ability to take advantage of the subject’s pose and the light that is around him.

However, photographers will also use creative techniques to make sure a portrait photo has a desired outcome. At Cognito Studios, we always think up new ways to produce attention-grabbing photos. Recently we purchased some backdrops for the studio. We love the portraits we have produced since then. Lesson learnt - sometimes paying attention to your background after taking care of lighting, type of lens and techniques, helps to boost the wow factor in your photography.
