I don't exactly know why but headshots are one of my favorite things to photograph. Maybe because it is one of the few times you get to focus completely on your client. The background isn't as important, you don't have to worry about positioning a couple or posing a family. It is one shot that allows you to focus a hundred percent on your client and nothing else. It is even so much better when the headshots are for a client who loves what they do!
Meet Heather: not only does she happen to be one of my besties but she also happens to be a fellow photographer. She is the owner of Heather Woolard Photography (you can find her website here). Put her behind her camera and it is obvious that photography is what she loves. All of the reasons why I could not wait to do her headshots!
We had been talking about doing her headshots on and off for awhile but with a total of five kids and two photography businesses between us, we were having a hard time getting our schedules to coordinate. Heather and I made a recent trip to Fredericksburg to visit a Tuesdays Together meeting (a styled shoot!) by Hope Taylor and Natalie Jayne Moore. As we headed back to the car, we walked the streets of downtown Fredericksburg and thought, "Now seems like just as good of a time as any to grab a few headshots!" So that's what we did! Here are just a few of my favorites from Heather's session...isn't she gorgeous?!?
