Ok, I have a confession! Whenever a photographer asks me to take their photos, I get extremely nervous….like butterflies on the first day of school, like getting on stage in front of a bunch of strangers, like….well you get the point! I think I bring this on myself. I mean obviously they have seen mt work, but they may also recognize the mistakes if I were to make any. They understand the exposure triangle – f-stop, shutter speed and ISO. Our conversations can sometime be more technical versus everyday conversation, but that’s cool, because they get me! I love that during these sessions were are able to bounce ideas off of each other, learn and grow!
I recently completed some headshots for my photographer friend Natarsha as she prepared to re-launch her website and update her brand. For her re-brand she worked with our other friend Britney Jeanine, who I’ve know via social media for about a year but had just met in person recently! After Natarsha’s session Britney asked me about taking some photos. I was excited but nervous because both of these ladies are outstanding photographers and while I was flattered they chose me, I hope I could live up to their expectations.
I met Britney at her house on Sunday and her hubby and daughter hung out with us for her session. Because her brand is so specific in color- Plum and Lime Yellow…oh and I can’t forget that she likes to “Party in Color”!!!! I was excited when she said she found a wall with the same Lime Yellow color that matches her brand! Who cares that it was a little bit of a drive, us photographers tend to do what we need to do to get the shot!!! Here are a bunch of my favorite images from her session!
Oh and before I forget, my allergies were kicking my butt all during the session but when I got ready to leave Britney handed my a gift bag full of my favorite items- Oreos, Tostitos, and Dentyne Ice!!! I was so excited that I left my favorite sunglasses in her car! lol
