One aspect I truly enjoy in my work is creating beautiful images of people that they love. Cindy is one such person. She called me in September, a writer needing a professional portrait for her (then) website called the Wicked Pen. We finally met in October, when she came to my home studio. It can be a little stressful to come for a photography session; it’s not something one does every day, and it can make one feel vulnerable, with a mixture of high expectation and doubt of success.
Cindy wanted a portrait that was showed who she was. When I met her, I saw a beautiful, thoughtful, relaxed woman with stories to tell and share with others. If you are a writer, blogger, or do business in other ways behind a computer screen, showing yourself to your audience personalizes your work beyond the words you write. See for yourself.
Oh, and one other perk to a great headshot: Cindy’s images “introduced” herself to a man who was so drawn to her beautiful look that since this article originally posted, they were married.
