I have an important announcement to make! Headshots should not be boring! There, I said it! Please take a look at these super fun headshot photos! I had the pleasure of participating in a “headshot swap” with some really creative local artists! The first artist I photographed was Jaclyn Nesbitt of Jaclyn Nesbitt Designs. Jaclyn creates beautiful organic floral for weddings and special occasions! She even arranged for us to hold our photo shoot at Front Porch Farms, a local organic flower farm! I had a great time getting to know Jaclyn and she even let me in on a little secret. She’s expecting her first baby soon! Congratulations to Jaclyn and her hubby!

The next artist that I had the honor of photographing was Brittany Bijan with Harlin and Sparrow Events! Harlin and Sparrow offers event design for weddings and events, styling for photo shoots and interior design! Brittany is one of the group leaders of our local Rising Tide Society group! Thank you for everything that you do with organizing our monthly meet ups, Brittany! Visit Rising Tide Society to learn about our creative business owners meetups! I also love Brittany’s attention to detail with her accessories! I always like to encourage layers to my clients! Things that you can add or take away during a photo shoot. For example: scarves, sunglasses, jewelry, jackets, hats and sweaters.

I managed to snap a few photos of fellow photographer, Jen Phillips as well! Jen is a lifestyle wedding photographer based in Napa, CA. She is also one of the group leaders of our local Rising Tide Society group! Thanks to Jen for all she does for us!

I have a great time helping these fabulous ladies at our monthly meetups! Pictured below: Brittany of Harlin and Sparrow, Caitlin of Caitlin O’Reilly Photography, Jaclyn of Jaclyn Nesbitt Designs, Jen of Jen Philips Photography and Natasha of Natasha McGuire Photography.
