Flight Attendant Foodie ~ A Creative, Fun Shoot

wm e RGP_0873

Meet Flight Attendant Foodie.  This client came to me for creative photographs for her new blog, Flight Attendant Foodie.  It wasn’t a typical head shot/visual branding shoot as she didn’t want her beautiful face in the images.  She, as is suggested by the title of her blog, is a flight attendant working for a large commercial airline.  Her blog cannot be affiliated with the airline in any way thus the reason for not wanting her face prominent in the photographs.

When working with people, I love to capture their essence and soul.   When doing so, this usually means photographing their faces and especially their eyes.  As that wasn’t an option, I had to get creative.  My goal was to create a feeling of someone who loves to travel, embraces new experiences, and day dreams about where to go next.  I had some props that were reflective of travel and the client brought a couple of props and some wardrobe changes.  We had a lot of fun with different poses, lighting, and using the props.  We began on a simple white paper backdrop using strobes (one with an umbrella, one with a diffuser, one with a honey comb attachment) and then moved to the “purple couch” and used natural light.   She is now using the photographs on her blog as well as her social media sites; Instagram and Facebook.

I always find it exciting exciting when clients call because they understand that good photographs help substantiate their websites/blogs.  It really is true that a picture is worth 1000 words.

Below are a few reasons companies, no matter the size,  should have pictures of their team(s) and professional photography on their websites:
1. Photographs of people who run a business encourage credibility.
2. Photographs of people who run a business give recognition to the human side of a business ~ the company becomes more real to the customer.
3. Quality photography of  products and services ~ even candids of employees conducting the offered services ~ demonstrates to customers that the company cares about quality, customer service, and satisfaction.
It is important to put a face to a brand for all of the above reasons.

“My Funeral, My Way”

“Part of building and maintaining a strong on-line presence is having a professional head shot.   Your head shot is the first impression for people looking at your website or social media pages. A professional head shot is your opportunity to prove to your clients and potential clients that you care about quality and have quality products and/or services to offer.” – Robyn Graham

After hearing me say these words in a presentation at a Business and Marketing Jam Session for Women Entrepreneurs, Angela hired me to take her head shots so that she could improve her on-line appearance and hopefully sell more books.

It was a joy working with this beautiful, creative, talented author and entrepreneur.  I believe in her book and am thrilled that she now has nice photographs to represent both her and her book on-line.

About the book:  Let’s face it, no one wants to think about their own death or funeral, but it will some day be a reality.  We can’t avoid it.  If you have been to a funeral recently you’ll be able to relate to Angela’s concept and desire to publish the funeral planning journal.  With that in mind, the journal will help ensure that you have the funeral you hope for and alleviate a lot of planning stress for your loved ones.
