I was hired by Amy Gordon from Mama Lounge to photograph her staff for her website. As usual, I told her to bring anything she and her staff needs to be more relaxed during session. Well, the kids are always helpful when it comes the time to relax! Since the kids were present and I am a child photographer, the kids were part of our executive portrait photo-session.
How lucky can you get? I am photographing my client Anette for her website. As usual, my question to my clients before every executive photo session was: When someone sees your executive headshot on the web, what or how do you want them to feel about you? Her response was: She wants to look professional businesswoman, confident and approachable. For this portrait we chose downtown San Francisco for her executive portrait. My assistant, my client and I dodging passing cars while photographing when all of a sudden several police cars started blocking California street 20 feet from where we work. At first I thought that I did something wrong: after all we were photographing on the streets of San Francisco during green lights for pedestrians but then realized that they are blocking street to film a car commercial. I was very grateful that we did not have to dodge cars anymore. On top of that, we exceeded all of my clients expectations! :)
My client Paul is a speaker and an insurance agent, and he needed to update his image for online professional websites, and speaking tours. To do this, we had a photo session to produce professional headshots in our San Francisco portrait studio, as well as more casual portraits. Paul, after seeing the photographs, said: “The photos are amazing, I really like the way I look.”
For this image, Dan wanted to be photographed in the area where he spent most of his time! But for this image I needed a police car...."No problem" He picked up his phone and in 2 minutes we had a police car for the shoot.
