I hadn't seen Megan in quite a few years when an email showed up asking if I would photograph her. This shoot was for a couple of online profile photos, which also inspired me to start offering a new type of photo session. But more on that later.
We met downtown Naperville and had a blast wandering all over taking shots in amongst the activity happening late in the day. The sunshine was perfect and the temperature wasn't too bad. Megan was happy and energetic and truly so much fun to photograph. Her sister joined us about halfway though the shoot and kept Megan focused, laughing and made sure she didn't have a hair out of place. She came armed with a brush! It made me laugh and I joked that she should join me on all my shoots s a stylist!
Megan inspired me to create a photo session called Connections. I have been asked on several occasions for photos to use for online dating sites or other online sites like Linked In. A normal full blown shoot isn't necessary for those purposes. A Connections Session is $100 and includes a phone consultation, 45 minutes of shoot time, 10 final edited images for viewing and 3 final low-res images for your online profile. I'm so happy to have had the opportunity to start the year off this way.
Thank you for asking me to be your photographer, Megan. It was wonderful to see you after so long. And, I love still having a connection back to you and your mom from a very important and special time in my life. It's amazing how photography brings people back into my life after so long.
Enjoy your photos!
