|Meet Jamie. She's a photographer living in Austin who's, in a word, fun... and bubbly... and smiley. Always smiling. In fact, the hardest part about our session last weekend was getting her not to smile in some of her images. Well, that, and pronouncing her last name. Go ahead, give it a try... Lapeyrolerie. See? Anyway, back to the smiling thing. Jamie's got such a sweet and pleasant personality... I'd have a hard time not smiling, too, with a personality like that.
Jamie is in the middle of a rebranding effort for her photography business and website, and she contacted me last year about scheduling a session to create some new images for her website, and I was honored that she drove up to Dallas for a session and more than happy to help. I love photographing photographers. They just 'get it', meaning they're easy to direct and truly a pleasure to work with. And, unlike me who's obviously and visibly awkward when I get in front of the lens anymore, Jamie is a natural.
Here's a few of my favorite images from our session together in downtown Dallas.
Did I mention Jamie is part Creole? She brought along this killer mask for an image or two. I know, too fun, right?
|Becuase she's such a trooper, you wouldn't know it, but she was freezing by this time. We had temps in the mid 70's all week leading up to the session, but on this particular day, mother nature dealt us a high in the mid 50's when the sun was up, and at this point in the session, it was more like upper 40's.|
