Yeap, what happens in Vegas is captured by Photographers at WPPI. If you don’t follow my twitter or my facebook page you probably don’t know I spent last week in VEGAS at a photographer’s conference. Yes, seriously, I paid attention, I took notes but more than that I learned so much about myself and the type of photography I want to be able to offer my clients; of course all that comes with a bit of fun and some awesome perks. One of those being “Professional headshots”, hey afterall we are at a photographer’s conference but I really have to thank Jen Mcken, Courtney Weaver and Nicolette Dixon for letting me add myself to this headshot session. I know, I am a total Wedding Crasher or in this case a Headshot session crasher but these ladies are amazing and did not ceased to amaze me at how great they are at what they do. Don’t get me wrong, I know Jen and Courtney from one of our photographer’s meetings here in Pittsburgh and Nicolette was my roommate in Vegas but still, I am a crasher LOL. I KNOW they were excited to know these were my FIRST professional headshots. Yes, they are, I don’t like to be photographed, I think I am way better at being behind the lens and although it was hard to be on the other side it was part of the entire experience in Vegas. I put myself in my clients shoes. I really have great respect for them. Half of the shots I could not stop laughing and the other half I look as if you should play the “I am sexy and I know it” song (I am laughing so hard right now). Still, these ladies made me look great. So, to re-direct this post to my clients: yes, I know you are not a top model, I know how uncomfortable it is to be on the other side, yes I know how critical we are of ourselves even though the images are beautiful so now I can say I WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE A TOP MODEL, YOU WILL FEEL COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF MY LENS (well, maybe after 15 minutes), YES YOU WILL BE CRITICAL OF YOURSELF WHEN YOU SEE MY IMAGES BUT THEY ARE GOING TO BE BEAUTIFUL AND YOU WILL LOVE THEM!
Here are my images from our session starting with Courtney. She is so much fun and beautiful AND TALL!!!so jealous!LOL
Then there is Jen Mcken. I’ve read Jen’s blog and I know she has a beautiful heart so YES JEN…let’s be friends!And last but not least my Vegas rommie – Nicolette or like everybody calls her Nikki. We had the opportunity to spend a lot of time together, Nikki is very sweet.These are images by Courtney. I will be posting more later but here are just a few of my favs and some of the ones that crack me up because, let’s face it that it’s me!
