Kim James Photography & Me

Kim James Photography & Me

I had the opportunity to work with Kim from Kim James Photography to get professional head shot photos done for my ABOUT page and other miscellaneous reasons.

I was so hesitant to get this done for several reasons:

  • I’m awkward.
  • Did I really need them.
  • I dislike being in front of the camera.
  • Who would help me take these photos without me feeling self-conscious?

I am so passionate about what I do, the choices I made, am confident about my designs and what I make but when it comes to being in front of a camera,  I’m a goof! I’m usually making a funny face.

After being asked for a headshot and realizing that the lamest photo on my new website was mine, I realized that I needed to have one better than this one:

This was taken with an iPhone a couple years ago and most likely went through a bunch of filters. It was a good placeholder but definitely needed updating.

After seeing Sarah + Matt’s wedding photos, I knew I wanted to contact Kim.

On shoot day, i invited Flora to come to the shoot and  the first thing I said to Kim when I met her was, “hi, i’m really awkward!”.

In one-hour,  I sweat like I was in a sauna, Flora helped me laugh, Kim worked her magic and a tequila shot later, these photos were taken:

By the end of the session, I was definitely more comfortable and didn’t feel as dorky. Although I am still a dork.
