What Does Your Headshot Say About You?

Whether you’re a business professional, a CEO, a college grad, a student/entrepreneur, a child model, a singer/dancer, or a stay-at-home-parent re-entering the work force, you need a great head shot for your business cards and your website!

Does your headshot communicate professionalism? your joy in living? your passion for a career or hobby? If someone sees your headshot, will he or she take you seriously?

These are just a sampling of headshots in my portfolio — you’ll see a variety of ages and styles and messages that these want to convey to others!

Be sure to contact me if you need a new headshot!

A Very Hungry Caterpillar

Little sister brought her baby brother her favorite bookThe Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle–and he was completely mesmerized by it, as you can see!

The cocoon and hat were crocheted by Lake Effect Creations. You can find her Etsy shop online at etsy.com

Isn’t he adorable in it? A beautiful creation in God’s world!

Zzzz.

Earth Laughs in Flowers

 Earth laughs in flowers.  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Hamatreya”

My best friend/dear husband and I strolled through the Missouri Botanical Gardens yesterday with camera ready.

These are just a few of the hundreds of luscious blooms and new leaves in God’s gorgeous world. Red maples. Crabapples. Red buds. Daffodils. Tulips. Pansies. Viburnum. Johnny Jump Ups. I just want to live there!

Some of my favorite quotes about flowers:

‘Tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes!
~William Wordsworth, “Lines Written in Early Spring,” Lyrical Ballads, 1798

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
~William Wordsworth, “I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud,” 1804

I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.
~Edna St. Vincent Millay, “Afternoon on a Hill”

Look at us, said the violets blooming at her feet, all last winter we slept in the seeming death but at the right time God awakened us, and here we are to comfort you.  ~Edward Payson Rod

Happy awakening! Happy Spring!

A Girl and Her Guitar

When this young beauty becomes the next Taylor Swift and hits the musical charts or lands a modeling job, she promised that I could be her career photographer. I will be able to say, “I knew her when … she played in her back yard … ”

I wish her ALL the best! She’s a beautiful girl inside and out!

Way to rock this session, Reagan! Love ya!
