A little over a week ago, I stepped out from behind the lens and became the client. I chopped all my hair off in March and it changed my look completely. You could say I was “reborn”! I decided I needed new head shots, but at the same time, I’ve been dying for a photo shoot and the opportunity to have something done for myself, so I put out an SOS call and friend and photographer Lauren with Vida Mia Photography came to my rescue. I was ecstatic when she told me she would come to ME with her hair/makeup artist and give me an experience of a lifetime.
I certainly could not refuse the opportunity and took the plunge. I secretly enjoy being in front of the camera just as much as I enjoy being behind the camera. There’s a certain feeling one gets with professional hair and makeup treatment and paired with the amazing direction of the photographer…well, let’s just say it’s probably a sliver of what a model shoot would be like! For our first set, we went with vintage boudoir–soft and beautiful, then bold with red fabric. For the head shot itself, we kept it powerful and professional. Then we went fun and glamorous with really bold outfits in a downtown setting.
I had a blast working with Lauren and her hair/makeup artist Cori. It also was a great reminder for me of how my clients feel when they’re in front of the camera and how important my job is to connect with each one and make them feel at ease. It makes such a difference to have that connection! I certainly think I will be treating myself a little more often to a photo shoot from here on out. Here are some teasers shared with me by Vida Mia Photography. Oh, I cannot wait to see the rest (which, I’m sure is exactly how my own clients feel when I share a sneak peek)!
