PortraitHER Session: Kristen // Professional DC Headshots

It was a perfect spring day in April when I met Kristen for her headshot session. She was told that her current headshot made her look like a kid, so she needed a headshot that communicated she was a professional adult! That was definitely doable!

The end of the business day provided the perfect golden hour light for our session. Cars and pedestrians were bustling through the streets near Thomas Circle in DC. We explored the area together, looking for great backgrounds and perfect, even light. As we walked and talked (and laughed), it was like hanging out with an old friend. Kristen was so easy and fun to work with that our hour together just flew by. I have lots of blurry pictures of her just cracking up. Ahh, memories!

Keep killing it, Kristen!

I can’t recommend Shala MORE! When needing to update my professional photo for work, I was not looking forward to a photo shoot. Shala met me at my apartment, made sure she was clear on exactly what I wanted and made the experience a ton of fun. I am typically not very photogenic and was shocked with how many GREAT pictures she was able to take.
