I first met Lena years ago when she came to me for a mini headshot session for our local gym Sportsplex. I’ve been doing all their headshots for years now, and she was one of the Yoga instructors that needed to be photographed. I sat her down, had all my lighting ready to go, and when I first picked up my camera to do a test shot, I put it down and asked her “You’ve modeled before!” She said “yes, years ago- how did you know?” I can always tell when someone modeled because I don’t have to direct them how to tilt their head, move their chin, angle shoulders, etc- they just know. It’s great when that happens!
So fast forward a few years later, Lena came back to me for a branding session to promote her website business, Beautiful Things. I LOVE doing sessions like this: we get to play around, have fun, be silly, throw ideas out… It’s like having an amusement park all to yourself. Outside of covering my bases with the images I know she needs, the rest of the shoot is outfit changes, and shooting all around the studio, which I rarely get to do. Or maybe I should do more often… Either way, we had a great shoot using both my studio strobes, daylight from the main window, and a mix of both. Unfortunately outside my studio does not offer much, but there is the old brick wall which we used a for a few shots.
So, if anyone needs a website designer, Lena states that you’ll get a website that: has a built in marketing funnel; offers a freebie that attracts your soul tribe; authentically embodies your core values; and strategically evolves as your business does. She’s very easy to work with, full of ideas, and very personable. Thanks for checking this out!
