Carla • Headshot session

POSTED November 29th, 2018 UNDER Head Shots, News, Photography, Portraits

I love helping people create new head shots because I never know who I’m going to get to work with.

Like Carla.

Carla contacted me after being recommended by a prior client (Thank you, Kate!).  She was going to toss her hat into the political ring and run for Senate, and she needed a new head shot.

Absolutely.

Carla was an absolute joy to work with.  She was so friendly and she had great humor.  She grew up in Africa and she wanted to wear a few things that hark back to her home.

I love her smile and her adorable pixie hair cut and she had she was just so warm and friendly and a joy to be around.  I really liked photographing her and working with her.

 

I also get a kick when I see an image I created being used for things like billboards:

I had a very bad experience a few years ago with an image I took of someone and that head shot was taken by someone else and used politically in an attack print advertisement without my permission or knowledge.  It’s taken a few years to get comfortable enough when someone approaches me asking about creating an image that will specifically be used for a political reason.   Carla was so energized that she helped me feel comfortable making an image that was going to be used for that purpose.

I would love to photograph her again.
