Five years ago if you told me that shooting headshots would fast become my #1 requested studio portrait, I’d say “oh, bummer…I really don’t like headshots”. True story. I had not yet met acclaimed headshot photographer Peter Hurley in NYC and experienced an awakening for my absolute love affair with headshots. Today I photograph CEO’s, CFO’s, actors, doctors, lawyers, money managers, real estate agents, people seeking employment, people simply looking to upgrade their branding, LinkedIn profiles, dating profiles…it’s absolutely incredible. And I honestly LOVE what I used to hate. OK, hate is a strong word, how about…strongly dislike with a passion? Now I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything about creating a new face to someone’s brand. It’s pure joy.
These images are of Erin, 20 years old, finishing acting school in Ireland and in Boston for a few weeks. My favorite makeup artist in the world, Bre Welch (Voted Best of Improper Bostonian 2013) did her magic on Erin for an hour, then we went to work. But I use the word “work” loosely, it was an absolute pleasure. Enjoy!
