My friends are among my best clients. Byron and Samantha (names changed to protect the guilty) spent an afternoon with me in my studio because Byron needed a head shot as a professional profile picture. Samantha wanted Byron to grow his hair long and thick so she could run her fingers through it, and that rendered Byron’s photos with short hair out of date. Our objective was two corporate looking shots, one with Byron wearing a jacket and tie, the other more casual. Both are pictured above.
When we achieved our goal, we were having such a good time that we continued shooting some fun shots with Samantha directing, as she does so well. She even joined Byron in front of the camera, and for the final shot below, I suggested that she use a piece of jewelry she was wearing to sum up the couple’s relationship. She knew exactly what I meant and was happy to oblige.
