Leslie is the big sister to my dear friend Bobby, and we all went to HS together. She approached me saying that it had been ages since her last professional headshot was taken and she needed one for LinkedIn.
Now you may have noticed, but we're all in the middle of a global pandemic called COVID-19. Unless you've had the ultimate in social distancing by yourself on a deserted island without any communication, you'd know that this is a serious thing. #wearamask
I've had to put the brakes on my business and thankfully, I've been able to work safely from a distance, where everyone around me is wearing a mask and being careful. For Leslies' headshot session, I made sure that everything was cleaned, disinfected, and that I was wearing a mask, she had no contact pretty much with the outside world, and after she left, I disinfected everything again.
First, we went over her wardrobe and picked out the best items for her to wear, and then we started inside my studio. She needed a plain background and then we moved outside in my yard for the rest.
While in the studio I had her do a smiling photo, and another that she could use as her "disappointed boss" face for emails. I called it "Mean Boss Leslie" LOL We had a lot of fun that day, laughing and chatting. It was really nice to have that interaction again.
As you can she, she knocked the ball out of the park that day. Her images were amazing and I heard that Bobby loved them too :)
