After doing Robin’s outdoor headshots a few weeks ago, Debbie contacted me about getting outdoor headshots too. I was so excited because we had so much fun on Robin’s shoot. We set up to shoot at a local park, but when we arrived Debbie wasn’t completely sold. As she started talking about herself, I realized this was the wrong location. It didn’t fit her personality at all. She is very outdoorsy and hikes a lot, loves flowers and animals. They have a cabin they built with their own hands! I knew I had to pick a different location.
Nearby, there was a walking trail that hugs the wash and the hills. I had been there a couple months back while location scouting and knew with the recent rain it would be gorgeous. This walking trail did not disappoint. It was early enough in the morning that it wasn’t insanely hot yet. I normally like to shoot before 9 am for this reason and because the sun isn’t too high yet. The trail was overflowing with flowers and greenery and plenty of trees to provide shade. We picked a few spots to stop and take photos and were able to talk and walk along the trail. One of the best things about being a photographer is getting to meet so many different people and hear about their backstories. It’s definitely a fun perk and I enjoy getting to know my clients when we are shooting.
I love the way these photos came out and I feel that it really captures Debbie and her fun and outgoing nature. These nature shots are also perfect for her essential oil business. If you are in need of headshots for your business, please contact me and we can pick the perfect location for your shoot.
