Commercial Photography: Be Yourself

Updated: May 25, 2020

Photographing people in an authentic way is my favorite kind of portrait.  So when I was hired for a Commercial Shoot to get headshots of individuals who need help getting back on their feet, it seemed outright wrong to shoot traditional headshots.


So instead, this is how it went down…


Me You can hang out here and chat.  You don’t have to smile or even look at me.  Just be yourself.

Everyone Oh, I can do that!


Check out Shoot #2 of LifeMoves.  [Click here to see Shoot #1.]  I am in love with the realness in their faces.


Some people still chose to smile or look at me while others remained serious.  Some showed grit and strength in their eyes.  Some revealed hope.  And all were true to themselves, which is all I can ask for.  ❤️
