My mentoring packages have become one of my favorite services that I offer. My heart is constantly pulled in the direction to help others and their businesses. I meet such incredible women through this process. I start every mentoring session by asking about themselves, their businesses, and their goals. I love that this allows me to get to know the client better from a personal aspect and then hear more about the business side of it.
Mallory booked with me a while ago, and we were so excited to finally meet for her 5-hour mentoring package! This includes 3 hours of customized lessons, lunch, headshots, and a styled shoot to learn hands-on, trying new posing techniques, and then use the photos for the portfolio! Mallory showed me that she was hard-working, driven, and has the kindest, sweetest heart!! I loved getting to know her and I can’t wait to take her senior pictures at VCU in the Spring! I am always blown away by the dedication that goes into finishing college while running a photography business. She is seriously kicking some butt, and I can’t wait to see her business grow even more by applying what she learned when we met.
The day of our session, it was literally blowing 40mph gusts of wind. It wasn’t super cold earlier in the day, but then it dropped to the upper 30’s by the time we started shooting outdoors. I guess it’s better to learn in the worst of conditions, right? 🙂 But then the sunshine started peaking through and we ended up with beautiful golden backlighting! Mallory did amazing and dealt with the weather like a champ. The models were basically frozen, but they looked flawless and I was so thankful for their patience!
First, I will be sharing some of Mallory’s windy and beautiful headshots! Then I will begin sharing my own images and favorites from the Fall and Holiday looks… We ended the shoot with a little Christmas fun! 🙂
THANK YOU to my awesome vendor crew who helped tremendously! I loved everything about the makeup, the hair (even though the wind really wanted to screw with it), and the flower crowns! See vendors listed below:
