I have been able to get to know Lynette over the past year and a half since we made a trip together with a mutual friend to California, where I was attending a photography conference. (See 'awesomeness' in the dictionary for details on the Click Away conference.) It was definitely bold of us both and very trusting in regard to our mutual friend (a friendly unicorn herself) to say yes to sharing a hotel room for several days, not having met in person before. What an amazing trip it was! I was so blessed to be introduced to new food items I'd sworn I'd never try (or try again). Brussel sprouts = yummy. Shrimp = really yuck. Anyway, I learned a lot about myself on that trip and got to know her as well, and the three of us all felt we'd found our female travel buddies for life.
Lynette is a very warm person, easy to talk to and extremely successful in sales. She has to be capable of socializing in many different scenarios with you never know whose personality. While I have gotten to know her over tasty dinners and a few girls' night out (or in), this year has brought a more vulnerable opportunity with a communication apps. It has been somewhat of a lifeline at times and such a great way to stay connected.
When Lynette asked me to help her update her professional headshots, I was sooo excited. With some nerves founded in wardrobe and location choice, as well as wanting to communicate who she is both as a person and as a professional in images, we had some questions to walk through and, honestly, as I often feeling like an imposter (many photogs feel this way), it was surprising to me how easily the answers came.
I have to tell you that the whole process was so natural and thrilling. You will see a shift in my focus going forward. I love families, and adore seniors and branding photography. What I love about all of these genres is the opportunity to really appreciate and capture a person's personality, help them feel known and beautiful, and then communicate without words who they are and why the viewer would want to know them.
This wonderful human has so many different sides to her and we were able to capture the big ones. I can't wait to do this for more entrepreneurs, professionals of all kinds, and that person you are thinking of right now. Message me!
