Well, the May Mini Headshot Sessions were great fun and I'm super stoked about the results we got for these 8 amazing entrepreneurs! I'm already receiving rave reviews about how their new images are working for them and their businesses.
We shot at The Shipyards in North Vancouver, which is a spectacular location complete with a variety of settings to choose from. Although shooting on location definitely has its challenges including harsh sun and human bogies in the background, I'm very excited to share some of the favourites from the day!

Thank you Lisa for being such a joy to photograph.
