Katerina contacted me through my website, needing headshots and some branding photos for her LinkedIn account and professional use such as speaker events and presentations.
“How do you want to be photographed”, is one of the first questions I ask people when we meet up for our initial consultation. Like nearly all my clients, she wanted to be depicted as authentic and approachable, but also people-oriented, as a trusted advisor, relaxed, casual, a bit playful, and warm and friendly.
During the shoot, I always chat with my clients and I told Katerina things like “pretend we’re in a conversation- like we’re friends at a coffee shop and you’re listening to me”, in order to demonstrate her role as a trusted and listening advisor for example, and in general we just chatted and I would catch her candid look on camera as she would give me an authentic smile or look. Our shoot was relaxed, natural and fun, which is typical of my photoshoots.
Katerina was kind enough to give me a five star rating on my Google site. Here is what she said:
“I needed new professional photos and found Kercheval Photography online. I knew I was in the right place as soon as I spoke with Jean who offered recommendations to help me prepare and coordinated with a wonderful professional makeup artist, Nikki. The day of the photoshoot was relaxing and fun. I received an amazing gallery of photographs and couldn’t be happier with the entire experience! Thank you Jean!”
