Headshot Trade-off

This week I had the unique opportunity to take the business headshots of three amazing ladies in the Denver photography community.  We had a great time walking around an outdoor mall snapping photos of each other.  We all knew each other virtually through the internet (Facebook, Twitter, Denver photography groups) but this was the first time we had all met in person.  It was an incredible experience and so much fun!  It’s truly remarkable to see all of our different styles come together for the benefit of each of us on a personal level.

My three favorite things about this session:

1.  Heather, of Heather Lilly Photography,

2.  Eunice, of Eunice Brownlee Photography,

3.  Teddi, of Picture the Day Photography,



Erika came to me after she saw the photos I took of the Hughes family.  The two ladies work together with my husband, in the Navy.  Yes, I know, Navy in Denver, how does that work?  They are actually stationed on an Air Force base doing some sort of radar detection…  I don’t know all the details, not because I don’t care, but because I’m not allowed to know what they do.  One of those “I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you,” jobs.  Go figure!

My three favorite things about this session:

1.  Erika came to me just looking for some updated photos of herself.  I love that!

2.  She told me that she has had an image in her head of getting some photos taken that focused on her tattoo, which represents what she lives by.  I’m always thrilled when my clients have an idea of what they would like!

3.  This session was a first for me!  I had a great time and I know she did too.  As I let her flip through the photos on the camera afterwards, I couldn’t help but notice her happy smile!  Another job well done!
