I love when Ottawa’s professionals and entrepreneurs choose me for their professional headshots! It means placing that trust in my hands to provide them with something so personal and important. I think the biggest thing for me is that I know on a personal level how stressful, scary and intimidating it can feel to be the sole individual in front of a camera. Should I be smiling? Should I have a straight face? How does my hair look? Is this a flattering angle? Do I look like a complete dork?! Sigh….yes. I am that girl who’s lip quivers, who’s eyes wont stop blinking and who is always smoothing out my hair. So when anyone comes to me for a portrait of any kind, I totally sympathise. Because I have not yet met a person who doesn’t have even a hint of fear of inhibition about having their picture taken. I think it’s natural. Not an easy thing to deal with, but it’s common in all of us I think. Myself included. So a word to all of my future clients: It’s okay. I get you. My job is to help bring out the best side of you while at the same time (hopefully!) having a bit of fun 🙂
Fall and Summer in Ottawa are the perfect time to book your professional headshots! I have a number of weekday evening sessions available for August and September and would love to connect with you to create something natural, beautiful and YOU!
Thanks so much for the fun evening Carissa! I hope you enjoy your images! 🙂
