THIS IS COURTNEY
I met Courtney through an event at I was at through the Other side of my life, Cook.Eat.Explore .
Pretty much immediately we hit it off, and I knew that I wanted to get her in front of my camera, and wanted to capture the fun and feisty side of her personality.
So I asked her if she’d be willing to pose for me.
She said yes.
I still marvel at the light that fills this house during the day, and easy it is to pop up my backdrop stand, toss a roll of seamless paper onto it, and bam. Studio space.This is Courtney. #khalifestylephotography #columbusohio #cbusphotographer Click To Tweet
Courtney got here, stand went up, and we got to work. Which includes me taking a few frames to test the light, make sure that my settings are right, and gives her the chance to start to settle in and get used to the camera. Because let me tell you it is not easy, and at first, it is supremely uncomfortable.
I put a glass of wine in her hands, and really got to work.
One of the biggest beliefs I hold true, especially in my business is that I want to put people at ease, and to show me who they really are, letting me capture their personalities, not the staid portrait that you can buy at outdated anchor stores in the mall.
In order to do so, I create interaction with my clients, putting something in thier hands, something for them to fiddle with, and where appropriate, a glass of wine.
Then we can talk about it. Over a glass of wine.
Spending the afternoon hanging out, getting to know her more, and playing with the light that came streaming in the skylights was so much fun.
I can’t wait to have her back.
