Professional Headshot Photo Shoot with Viviana

Viviana needed something new headshots to reflect her new business and career path so she booked a headshot photo session with me.

Here Viviana shares her experience of photo session with us:

At the beginning I was shy and I was afraid of the make up as I usually don’t do make up but then the more we got into the photo session Amanda guided me into the poses and what we wanted to achieve with them highlighting my strengths and my peculiar characteristics. She really tried to get the best out of me and she succeeded!

Impressed, I like the photographs a lot, I can see a new different version of me, In the photographs I can see a powerful woman and a woman happy and satisfied about what she has become.

The photo shoot experience indeed improved my confidence. It proved me that I can be a confident business woman and still smiling and being gentle and kind. My friends were shocked with the photographs and they keep telling me that I should always do my make up and wear like this. But I think more than the outside it is the confident that those picture show and the new version of me I am embracing internally but I also need to embrace and enhance externally, and bring it to the world.

Apart from the professional headshots, I thought since Viviana already had the hair and makeup done, why not take the opportunity create some beautiful portraits?! So we did, we created some stunning and artistic portraits with Viviana. 🙂
