When I first sat down with Sonya Schweitzer of The Intentional Marketer to plan her headshots and branding photos (because, you see, I was styling them and photographing them, which was something new and different for me), she challenged me with a question. She asked me, “Are you a photographer or a social media manager?” That question had already been plaguing me for months, and I still don’t have an answer, because I’m pretty sure that I can be both. I feel even stronger about that after doing this session with Sonya yesterday. But this blog isn’t about me.
Sonya and I had a blast exploring VIBE Creative District in Virginia Beach and Commune (who was super accommodating to our mini photoshoot in their space!). Her headshots were vibrant, colorful, fun, and got to show a little bit of her personality. Sonya is a world traveler – she and her husband RV all over the country, and she’s just in town for a few short weeks. She’s so incredibly knowledgable about everything marketing, branding, advertising and more – and I learned a ton from her just walking around Virginia Beach. I’m so glad that she chose me to do these photos (with much thanks to Liz Darling for referring me!), and we got to get to know each other a little better. I think this may be my thing, just a little bit. I’m totally down to do headshots and branding photos again – it’s fun!
It was tough to choose favorites from this session – I took over 400 pictures! Narrowing them down wasn’t easy, but I had a few clear favorites that I’m going to share in the blog today. I hope you enjoy her headshots and branding photos! Hair & makeup by Darling & Dapper.
