I had a client who needed professional headshots. These are always fun because adults are much easier to direct than are toddlers! I was excited to get back into the studio to shoot.
Yet when she arrived, she looked as if I was about to execute her! “Let’s get this over with,” she said despondently.
Now I know that many people do not like having their pictures taken, but this woman truly had nothing to worry about. Gorgeous skin, beautiful hair, what else need be said?
But first we fussed a bit about her hair. She wanted it pulled back completely. “Uh-uh,” I admonished. We compromised. Part back and part down. The results, lovely:
After she got a little more comfortable having put up with my general silliness, I again suggested loosening the hair. She agreed to humor me. But voila. C’est magnifique, alors!
By the time we made a clothing change, I knew that we were on the right path. She let her hair be free and she followed suit. Look at that smile!
Yep, it’s all about the hair!
