For as long as I’ve known Maureen, she’s told me to call her Moe. I love that. I love her nickname.
Moe took my workshop a long, long time ago. Sometime back in 2009 or 2008.
All these years have passed, and when Moe decided it was time to take a step forward professionally, she told me I was the only photographer she wanted to call. Comments like that make me feel all warm and appreciated inside.
So Moe came by the studio a little while ago, and we caught up and we had a ton of laughs, and then we got down to business.
When a session is booked with me, I leave a lot of time for what I call “the Process” to happen. Head shots, to me, are an organic process. Not only am I photographing you in a certain way, but I want to make sure that we don’t feel rushed – that we aren’t pressured for time. I ask clients to leave their schedule open; to not schedule anything after our shoot. I don’t ever want a client and I to loose the connection we are developing because they are pressed for time, or looking at their watch. We’ll shoot a bit, and chat, and shoot, and chat. There will probably be a lot of talking, because I love to talk and share.
When I emailed Moe her proofs, she emailed me back saying “This photo is a statement of how I see myself moving forward.”
Thank you, Moe. I am always in your corner.
