When I see a bad headshot, a part of me cries inside. Especially so when I know the person and I know how beautiful they are! I think of my sessions as portrait sessions. Everyone deserves a portrait they are proud of. And I love being the person that can give them that. It is really difficult to sit in a chair with a random backdrop and a strange person asking you to “smile” at the camera. If you feel awkward and uncomfortable while the photo is being taken, then you will feel that way when you see the photo later. I enjoy taking my clients outside, walking around, finding areas with gorgeous light in an environment that is uplifting and creative. We talk about what makes us happy and how we love to be. All these pieces add up to the making of a sincere and lovely portrait that my clients can be proud to show. They know if their first impressions are through Facebook, LinkedIn, or in an email, that their photo shows their personal beauty. And I love that!
Here are a few photos from two recent sessions. Both couples were so sweet and awesome and we had such a fun time!
