Being a small business owner, I find this time of year to be “the calm after the storm” (a really awesome storm though!) It is the perfect time to plan and prepare for what is next, collect your thoughts and organize. My main focus has been updating my website and looking for new ways to focus on offering the services I am most passionate about. One of those things is headshots and branding.
Headshots & Branding photos are a great opportunity to be yourself and show everyone your style, your vision and most importantly, your personality! This is your chance to show the world what you have to offer! Whether you are employed at a major corporation or own a small business, this is a great way to showcase yourself!
I recently swapped photos with one of my best friends who is also a photographer! We had such a great time focusing on representing ourselves (and businesses) through photography. It was a little odd to be in front of the camera and it definitely gave me some perspective when I had someone telling me to "sniff your shoulder" when I am usually the one saying that!
What made it especially fun was being able to find ways to represent ourselves through our clothing, props and hair & makeup! We brought in so many outfit changes and also played dress up in my client closet! We also had Crystal Vazquez come into the studio and do our makeup and what a treat that was! Not only did we have a great time hanging out with her but we were able to relax and have some "me" time while getting ready! I will absolutely be recommending her for on-site hair and makeup for all of my future sessions! Ultimately, we got some great shots and had such a great time doing it, that is always my end goal in each session!
