A venture to the other side.

 

So today my Mother took headshots of me for my new website.  I didn't realize just how uncomfortable it can be on the other side of the camera until now.  As I was trying to smile, be serious, look away, look back, smile again, smile again, smile once more because "that looks fake"...  It took me awhile, but then I remembered the things I say to my clients while I'm working with them. 
Im so used to being on the other side of the camera, today made me really take notice that it is important to be comfortable and confident while getting your photo taken.  It takes a few shots to loosen up, it takes good direction, and most importantly it takes a good laugh during the shoot to keep you confident!  Chalk that up to another learning experience.  I hope with this, Ill be able to help my clients relax and have fun with each and every shoot.  My Mother did a wonderful job and I thank her for these!  Her are a few of the shots.
