Wisconsin Elopement Photographers who believe your wedding day & photographs should be filled with your personalities!
Earlier this Summer I got to meet an amazing mental health therapist named Stephanie from Madison, Wisconsin. She’s super cool because she helps people who are feeling sad, anxious, or going through tough times. As a headshot photographers, we love photographing people in their element!
Stephanie wanted some pictures to show who she really is and what she’s all about. She didn’t want to look all serious and boring like some old-school therapists. Instead, she wanted her pictures to be warm and friendly, just like she is. Stephanie loves cracking jokes when it’s okay, and she’s all about being herself. That’s what makes her so awesome!
Her office is an absolute haven. Sunlight streams in, making the space cozy and inviting with blankets, pillows, and a vibe that instantly puts you at ease. It’s a place where you can chill out, sip on a hot drink, and feel like you’re in a safe cocoon.
So, my job was to capture the essence of her space and personality through the photos. I snapped shots that showcased her welcoming and relaxed environment. It was important to highlight her goofiness and approachability, so her true self could shine through.
After that, we hit Aldo Leopold, a natural spot she loves. We captured serene shots that perfectly reflect her love for nature, offering a calm vibe to use on her website and social media.
What made this shoot so special was capturing her authenticity and warmth. She didn’t want to be seen as a stereotypical therapist—she’s vibrant, cracks jokes, and brings her genuine self to the table. And that’s what I aimed to convey through the photos.
It was an incredible experience portraying her in a way that reflects her warmth and uniqueness. It’s moments like these that remind me why I love photography—it’s the ability to capture the essence of someone and their mission, communicating their story without words.
Remember, being genuine and showing who you are is a powerful thing. Just like how I portrayed her authenticity and warmth through the photos, showing your true self in what you do is what truly resonates with people. That’s the beauty of photography—it’s a storytelling medium that captures the soul.
