Morgan's Monday Moments -- Headshot Happy Hour Sept. 14th 2017
This week I'll be sharing about my favorite day of the month -- Headshot Happy Hour! Now every 2nd Thursday, this event is really beautiful for lots of reasons-- mainly because it's a place for women to take time for themselves, bond with each other, and come away with beautiful photos to use in all sorts of ways.
The fact is, we live in a visual era. Everything we do is online on websites and in profiles in so many different capacities; that getting nice photos is a real thing that needs to happen for everyone (not just actors/models/CEO's/etc.). Having your photos up is unavoidable, and usually we're stuck with what someone else took of us, a selfie, or a headshot our job made us take one day when we showed up on a random Wednesday. Ugh.
Our monthly Headshot Happy Hour is for women because it's easier to talk through your needs when there are other women in the same position there as well. You understand that if you're a new mom and look way different than you did 2 years ago, or if you're recently single and want your profile to stand out, or if you need a really powerful headshot on your company's website -- that we all share some of the same insecurities about our hair, makeup, clothing; and usually don't want to look too "done up" but still want to look GOOD.
My favorite moments come usually after we take the first few shots together. I heard a photographer say recently that what they love about capturing women is not exactly giving them a "memory," but it's giving women a glimpse into the beauty they never even knew they had. It happens with every single woman, every single month and it's the reason we've been doing this for a year, shooting over 40 women now and no two photos ever look the same. Even with the same backgrounds (and we have plenty), I'm always blown away at how each woman brings her special WOW to every event.
This doesn't even get into how the wine, the snacks and tarot cards (yes, those tarot cards) set the tone. This Happy Hour really is happy, and gets to a deeper place about why beautiful photos tell our story the way we want it to. I always feel so honored to work with, get to know, and learn from the beautiful women who join us -- can't wait to see how our future events unfold.
