Have you ever cringed at trying something new … even though you know it will be good for you, really fun and make you happy? Of course, we all have! New experiences seem intimidating. Maybe you don’t know where to start? Maybe this new experience won’t live up to your expectations? Why bother then? It’s easy to do the same old mundane stuff day to day to day, but ultimately that isn’t living. So for once let’s leave those apprehensions at the door. Take a baby step. Better yet, run! Whatever gets you to start something new.
I’m sure you are wondering what this has to do with our photography. We wish we had a dollar for every person that’s told us how much they hate getting their picture taken. We like to replace the word hate with fear. Fear they aren’t pretty enough, skinny enough, friendly enough (don’t understand this one) or worthy enough. We get it! It’s nerve racking to step in front of a camera and be vulnerable. It takes courage. We have a healthy respect for these feelings. We honor them, but then BLOW them up. Cause when you get photographed by us we guarantee it will be fun!
For today’s headshot we have the pleasure of featuring the calm, kind-hearted Jennifer. We met this super sweet gal at an AIGA meet up. That makes four graphic designers this year. Let’s keep that number rolling. The goal for this shoot was to showcase a casual, comfortable, creative professional. Say that three times fast!
“I am sure I mentioned this already but I usually hate having my picture taken and was super nervous but you both made it fun!” – Jennifer
