Catherine M. | $100 Headshot Event

 

I’m officially wrapping up my $100 Headshot Event blog posts with Catherine, one of my repeat clients that I’ve had the pleasure of working with three times now!  It’s hard to believe that I’ve had so many headshot sessions in January that I’m not wrapping them up until the month of May.  I must truly say that I am in awe and feeling completely blessed to have worked with so many amazing women in 2019 so far!  Not only did I get the opportunity to meet new entrepreneurs, but I also got to see a lot of clients come back for refreshers which I was so happy to see.

Catherine’s previous sessions were a lot of fun and gave us a chance to get to know one another better so when she made the drive up from Georgia yet again I was excited to catch up with her and see what’s new in her chef/catering business.  For this session we took to the streets of Old Town, Rock Hill, SC which was a nice departure from her previous two sessions which both took place in parks in Charlotte and Rock Hill, respectively.

Every time Catherine posts an image of a meal she’s prepared on Instagram I’m instantly jealous that I don’t live closer to her because I truly feel that I could have a pretty successful career as a taste tester.  I’m sure my waistline would hate me for it, but my taste buds would enjoy it.

Maranda W. | $100 Headshot Event

mua branding sessionMaranda W. | $100 Headshot Event

 

I have been waiting to get my favorite Columbia, SC makeup artist in front of camera for a LONG time and it finally happened during my $100 Headshot Event that took place earlier this year.  Maranda and I are both members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and University of South Carolina alums and with both of us working in creative fields it was only natural that we would have clients that overlap.  I’ve recommended more than a few of my clients to see Maranda prior to their session and have been blessed enough to have worked with her myself as well.  She’s super talented and that’s only surpassed by her amazing personality.

The morning of her session we met in downtown Rock Hill, SC and she showed up prepared for her session 110%.  Dressed to the nines, curls poppin’ and her makeup obviously flawless.  We had a great time catching up on what we’d both been up to since I last saw her doing the makeup for my sister’s wedding.  I’m so excited to see what’s in store for her and her business in the coming months and years.  Her strong work ethic and desire to make women feel beautiful is just part of the reason why I’d recommend her to anyone needing makeup services in the Soda City area.  Her work has been published in Inspire National Hair Magazine, Sophisticate’s Black Hair, among others.  To learn more about Maranda and to follow her visit her website or check her out on Instagram.  I promise you won’t regret booking her services for any upcoming events or photoshoots you may have.

Just because you own or work in a more traditional type of business doesn’t mean you have to have boring headshots.  I tell my clients that work in professional fields like law, insurance, and accounting, like Nikki here does, all the time that along with the more standard headshots we can also incorporate some fun images that show off your personality.

Nikki’s session took place in downtown Rock Hill, SC on a Saturday afternoon in January.  After getting to know more about her and her business, Infinity Accounting, we made our way through the city stopping at some of my favorite locations along the way.  The images we created will give Nikki a lot of content for the coming months.  And I love the fact that she’s already using the images on not only her website, but her social media accounts as well.

 

If you’re tired of the same old, boring headshots and are looking to spice things up and infuse more of yourself and personality into your brand then it’s time to shoot me a message.  Let’s take your next branding session from drab to fab and contact me today so we can begin the planning process!  I’m looking forward to hearing from you.  And if you want to learn more about Nikki and the services she offers you can find out more via her website, on Facebook and on Instagram.

Dawn A. | Kingsley Fort Mill Session

 

Whenever you’re a photographer located in a specific area you tend to shoot in places you’re comfortable and familiar with.  I will say that I’ve come along way from shooting in the one and only park that I knew of in my beginning stages.  Each session looked exactly the same as the last and there was zero variety.  But even now, with plenty of locations near and far under my belt it’s nice to visit somewhere new that’s also in close proximity of home.

I’ve had the pleasure of shooting with my friend Dawn twice now within a 6 month time frame.  Our first session took place in scenic uptown Charlotte so for this session Dawn suggested the newly built area of Kingsley, located in Fort Mill, SC.  It’s an area of town I’d only visited once while helping my sister go bridal gown shopping so I was excited to return with fresh eyes and a new mission.

As always, Dawn and I had fun catching up during her session.  And even though it took place in January for my $100 Headshot Event, it was a nice, and not overly-cold evening just before the sun began to set.  What we photographers like to refer to as golden hour.  The perfect time for capturing a headshot session.  If you’re in need of updated images then I’d love the opportunity to chat with you.  Contact me today so I can see how I can help you bring your vision to life.

Marcie T. | Brown Girl Collective

 

Marcie and I met, of all places, via a tag on Instagram.  Yep, you read that right.  If there was ever a story behind why using tags can be powerful for your business this would be it!  Whenever posting images to my IG account I use a plethora of hashtags.  And along with those I will sometimes tag prominent, and pertinent, accounts in my photos as well.  As I was promoting my $100 Headshot Event towards the end of 2018 I decided to tag one of my favorite accounts, Brown Girl Collective in hopes that maybe they’d see it and like it or reshare the image.  Well I got something even better than that.  The creator of BGC herself, Marcie Thomas reached out to me about doing a headshot/branding session for herself!  I can honestly say I was super surprised.  Being that she was based in Georgia and I’m sure had a ton of amazing photographers right at her fingertips I couldn’t believe that she’d be willing to travel all the way to the Carolinas to work with me.  But she did…and here we are!

Her session took place in scenic uptown Charlotte on what was a chilly, but beautiful morning.  She told me about her passion for art and painting and I’m so glad we were able to work her pieces into her session.

Marcie is a creative force who uses her talents to educate, motivate, and inspire through the Brown Girl Collective.  She’s also the voice behind The Brown Girl Diaries blog and an upcoming podcast and event series, Love and Soul Creative.  Her first series of paintings is set to launch this spring so make sure to stay tuned for that.  You can find Marcie on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.  It was such a pleasure meeting and working with her and I hope we get the opportunity to create more #blackgirlmagic together!
