Hello! This will be a silly post – Every week I talk with business owners about the importance of good photographs – if you want people to know who you are, that you are indeed a real person and that you aren’t some creepy, crazy maniac. A good portrait of you will help people relate to you & will show professionalism (or whatever the message is you wish to convey). So, if you know me you probably know one or more of the sites I have profiles on…. barbiehull.com, blog, myspace, linkedin, biznik, facebook, (coming soon) and all of them have ZERO photos of me (well good ones anyway). This is ridiculous considering I am a photographer and half of my friends are too. (we know its important, but actually getting around to doing it is a bit scary!)
Laurel The Superstar McConnell (of Laurel McConnell Photography) agreed to take my photos last week (like she had a choice… hee hee). So we headed down to Georgetown – our first stop was the Tully’s (used to be Ranier) brewery and then to a few abandoned buildings where we laughed, shivered, laughed some more, looked into the sun (so bright) and of course jumped of stairs. Laurel is SO awesome – I mean she always has been a fabulous photographer – but to be photographed by her is the greatest! I am not so comfortable in front of the lens (silly ones are great, but real photos are scary!) and Laurel made it a fun experience. Time flew by so fast I didn’t want the afternoon to end. =0) Thanks Laurel – you are the greatest!!
Below you will find a couple of the fun shots Laurel took. (it is so funny seeing photos of yourself… ridiculous)
