Recently I realized I needed to have a professional head shot for my LinkedIn page. Coincidently, when I joined the DC Metro Mini Club (second best decision I’ve ever made) I met a fantastic photographer. Alicyn Drew is not just the President of our Mini club, she also takes amazing photographs. I was most impressed with her Mini pictures (of course) and she totally helped me to visualize vinyl designs for My Precious so it only made sense to give her a ring to fulfill my photography needs! We set up a time and she agreed to come out to my condo for the shoot.
The day we chose was bitterly cold. Ali decided that the overcast skies would provide perfect lighting and we should move outside. We started on the balcony. Ali posed me and then began shooting
The shots were great but, but Ali wanted more nature.
We bundled up (and by we I mean Alicyn. I couldn’t cover my bold red blouse) and headed out to the wooded area behind my building.
She took a few shots under the trees.
As we were preparing to head back inside I mentioned that I was going to upload the best shots to my online dating profile. Alicyn said, “hey throw on a slinky dress and lets take a few extra shots for that!” I was all “OK, let’s go back to wardrobe and see what we’ve got.”
Alicyn said the camera loved me in red, and quickly moved to the red section in my closet. That’s right it is organized by color, shape and style.
Alicyn totally gets the power of the Mini and decided to shoot these pictures with My Precious. She told me to take off my top and pull it around the corner. We started with a few shots of me driving.
She had me climb into the back seat and took some really sassy shots from behind.
When Ali got back to her studio and began working her magic, she transformed the images so it wouldn’t look like every picture I have was taken at the same time or like I only own one dress.
The entire shoot was a really fun time. Alicyn is incredibly talented and I got much more out of my head shot shoot than I ever expected! Check out her work at http://www.alicyndrew.com and If you need head shots, you should drop her a line! Tell her Sherri sent you and she’ll take off 25%. You’re welcome.
