It Was Time For An Update | My Personal Headshots

So as we came to the end of 2015 and I have so much fantastic magical things planned for 2016, I thought to myself, it’s time for new portraits!

 

Time really flies and it’s hard to believe that it has been almost 2 years or more since I took my formal beauty headshots. I better practice what I preach, and update my own headshots every 2-3 years too! So it’s time for an update.  

 

So you may ask, who photographs the photographer? I am collaborating with my fabulous and talented  studio manager, Andrea to photograph me!

 

 

Ahh, and now just like you, I was a little freaked out. It’s funny to think that even a photographer becomes just a girl for her big photoshoot. (I may have even freaked out even more than most people.)

 

 

The immediate thought popped up, “I have nothing to wear”! Of course once I really looked through my closet I had plenty of options. I then added a huge shopping spree where I bought half of Nordstrom saying “this will work” even though that hot jump suit doesn’t zip up (no one sees the back of the outfit in the photos..wink wink), as I pose in the mirror of the dressing room.

 

It’s time to get some gym time in at the last minute to “tone up” too.

 

I’ve frantically made nail and hair appointments. All in an effort to get it all done and work a full time job and take care of my loved ones and social obligations (who’s idea was it to plan a shoot the week before Christmas anyhow…..oh yea mine).

 

The best thing that has come from all this, is that I now I have an experience fresh in my mind to relate to my clients. All the FEARS, worries, and little insecurities all come to the surface but now I can honestly tell my clients "trust me I totally understand what you are worried about but, you are in good hands and I am here to walk you through this."


After all, I am just a girl and we all just want to look and feel great! I am so honored and excited to share some of the final images (more to come soon.)
