The Other Side: Profile Images & Outtakes

Last week after I had my hair done by our Amazing Alexis (yes, that's what we call her), I asked David to take a few updated pictures of me for the website. Now, a few people can attest to this that I am one of those nervous nellies in front of the camera and I can drive you nutzo because, well, who knows why. All i know is that I completely understand how our clients feel when I do this. Except, when I am taking the pictures, you have to admit, that I do pretty crazy things in order to get you to relax.  
 
I am a firm believer that all professional photographers need to be in front of the camera a few times a year so clients can get to know the real you. One of my biggest pet peeves is meeting a photographer or any business owner in person and then second guessing whether it was really them or not based on their profile picture. Drives me crazy! Oh, and if you are waiting to loose those extra 25-50 pounds due to life just happening, well, don't wait. Yes, I will be the first to admit, I've got a few pounds to loose, but I also want our clients to see me in my own skin.  
 
Now, I'm lucky enough to have a husband who is also a photographer, and a lot of close friends who are also photographers that will help me update my profile images. If you are a local photographer who would like some updated images, just holla so we can connect!  
 
Happy Thursday!
The top collage is the "normal images" that passed the professional inspection and then the bottom collage is what we are calling the outtakes. Poor David! This is what he saw when I was goofing off, which happens often.
