Because 2020- and, truly, 2021 thus far- has been hard on us all, I’ve been doing some thinking. One of the results of said thinking is a plan to try some new things this year, including with my photography business. Since writing has always been something I enjoy (English teacher here!), this seems like a no-brainer, but finding the time to balance full-time teaching with part-time photographing, all while running around after a curious and feisty just-about-two-year-old (she literally drew on the back of my laptop with colored pencil while I started writing this) and an equally demanding and often times disapproving five -year-old corgi hasn’t been easy – pandemic or no pandemic.
However, because I think it can be good for both me personally and professionally, I am committing to bringing blogging back this year. And no, I can’t say that without singing it to the tune of Justin Timberlake’s “Bringing Sexy Back”. Now you can’t either. You’re welcome! 🙂
So, my first session of 2021 and my first blog post features a friendly face who is no stranger to my followers, as she’s been a friend of mine since grade school and one of my most loyal clients, allowing me to capture her beautiful family since it was born.
She also happens to be our realtor, whom we worked with buying and selling our old house and buying our current house last year right before everything shut down. Since it had been nearly five years ago since we had updated headshots for her (one of the first sessions I shot in our old house where I converted an extra bedroom into an in-home studio), she asked me to do some new ones for her, and I was beyond excited to hop back on the photography bandwagon after a bit of an intentional hiatus during this partial hybrid/partial remote academic year that I’ve honestly been just trying to survive. We spent some time last Saturday in the beautiful Park Company offices giggling like we were 16 again, as that was the first time I had seen her in person in basically a year. Here are some of my favorites. If you’re in need of some headshots or images for your brand, I’ve decided to offer a new session that’s just for professionals. Check it out and let me know if I can take care of this for you! And if you’re in need of a realtor, give Jamie a call.
