When talking to our clients for the first time, they always mention how they don’t like getting their picture taken. Who does? It can be an uncomfortable, unsettling event. In fact, many of them reference a “bad” experience where they were photographed in a stale lifeless environment, had to hold a stiff lame pose for way toooooo long or simply just didn’t connect with the photographer. We’ve all been there, done that. Everyone remembers their high school senior portraits, are we right? We’ve found the only way to curb this anxiety is to discuss the overall goal for the shoot. What are they looking to achieve? How do they want to be portrayed? How can we help effectively present this to others? These are all vitally important questions that we guess were not asked in their previous “bad” experience. LISTENING IS KEY. Once you’ve heard their ideas repeat them back. It’s a simple yet important step. It let’s them know you care and are actually paying attention. Trust us, you’ll immediately see a shift in their language. Any previous objections begin to fade away like a distant memory and the real collaboration can begin. Give it a whirl, we dare ya!

For today’s headshot we have the pleasure of featuring the sassy, yet regal Edna. She found us through a mutual friend and had some of the exact same apprehensions we mentioned earlier. We overcame them by setting the tone from our very first conversation. We listened, built trust and from that moment on she was on board. It shows!

“You guys really know what you are doing!” – Edna


A post on a local photographer’s FB group started our relationship, but it felt like we had met even before she moved to Tucson. We were glad to see another friendly person contributing to the group and asking for advice. Not enough photographers do!!! It is truly a great feeling to have a community within the industry to connect with colleagues, bounce ideas off each other and mostly important build trust. Looking back to when our company first started, we wish something like this existed. If you haven’t attended a local meet up in your area, we highly suggest doing so… you automatically have at least one thing in common! For today’s headshot, we have the pleasure of featuring the sweet & simple Kristin of Kristin Anderson Photography. She’s a laid back gal, keeps it real and is easy to talk to. MmmmmHmmmmMmmm! It only made sense to capture these qualities. She wanted an updated headshot to compliment her ‘newly relocated’ brand and of course we wanted to help a sista out! Lastly, she soooooo deserved it! Thank you Kristin for making us laugh and ensuring us that we are not the only ones in the goofball department.

When you have been with someone this long, it sometimes takes a special glimpse of them to remind you of how truly beautiful they are, and always have been.” – William Anderson (Kristin’s husband)


We are all about getting off our tushie, outta the office and meeting new people in the Tucson community. It’s amazing how many relationships grow with one simple greeting…’Hello nice to meet you’! Adding a smile at the end is a huge must. So set aside some time, log off Facebook, leave your boring desk and shake some hands people! For today’s post, we have the pleasure of featuring the very bubbly Susan of Smart Pop Creative. We recently met at a local creative industry mixer hosted by AIGA, talked for literally five seconds and that was that. Knowing what we know now, we can’t believe she didn’t talk our ears off at that event. She’s a natural communicator, a great listener and has the best laugh – an all around fabulous gal. So with her headshots, it only made sense to showcase her friendly-approachable personality. We also thought it would be fun to mix in her playful branding colors. A great addition to her soon to launch graphic design + social media marketing site!

I was extremely nervous for my photo shoot, but Eric & Casia put me at ease right away. The whole process was awesome! From the initial phone consultation, to the photo shoot, to picking out my final photos…I honestly had fun every minute…no joke! And don’t even get my started about the final photos. Thank you for making me look good…both of you are true artists. I can’t rave enough about how happy I am!” – Susan
