I know it’s not Thursday but this is a bit of a throwback post. This headshot session was in early 2015, so about three years ago! I hadn’t been living in Denver for very long and I was doing a lot of networking with other photographers, as I tried to figure out what I wanted to specialize in. I had met Jennifer at a holiday party just a few weeks before, so when she put out some feelers for a headshot trade, I was excited to join her!
Jennifer Mason is an absolutely amazing birth photographer. We are part of a great photography networking group and she and I have worked together a few times over the years. I always love seeing her work. It’s really incredible! I later took pregnancy announcement photos for her and her family, while I was considering getting into family photojournalism. Jennifer recently moved to Michigan to start the next adventure for her and her family.
I hadn’t started offering headshot sessions when I took these photos. At the time, I had no idea it would become one of the main focuses of my business! This session turned out to be a great learning experience for both of us. I got some good practice being behind the camera, taking portraits. But Jennifer was also taking my portraits during the session, and the experience of being in front of the camera was invaluable. My focus with headshots is always to make sure my clients feel comfortable and happy. I would not be able to do that if I didn’t know what it felt like to be in their shoes. This session helped me love portrait photography and I love seeing how far I’ve come in the past three years!
