We should all feel sorry for Lauren. I mean, it’s gotta be tough going through life looking like Scarlett Johansson. Poor thing. All petty jealousy aside, I adore this gal. She is super-sweet, and turned shooting into hanging out instead of work. Yay! She’s also a smarty-pants, and writes a financial blog called L Bee and the Moneytree. She actually makes matters of money into something fresh and not terrifying. Magic! We took these pics so she could make some updates to her site. Woo hoo!
I gotta mention some biznass in this post too. First, thanks to Gina Rickicki for once again doing lovely things with hair and makeup! Second, I’m glad to have another example of a lifestyle shoot to show folks. It’s a type of shoot that not a lot of people are familiar with. I’ll often get someone asking about headshots, but as we discuss further, I find that they need something more “editorial”. Lifestyle shoots can be geared specifically towards what a person needs. They can be business promo shots, dating website portraits, modeling portfolio pics, and the list goes on. Lauren needed these photos for her blog, and some of the words that came up in our planning were, “fun”, “preppy”, “quirky”, and I think “sassy”. Or maybe sassy just happened on its own. The point is, there’s a lot of flexibility with the mood and style of these shoots, which makes them super swell to do.
Lauren, thanks for being so darn cool. Murray the dog also gets a gold star for awesomeness!
