Megan is someone I have now known for many years. She went to Salem State (where myself & Drew both went) She was a theater major & one of my very good friends was also a theater major. My twister (if you follow the blog you know what it means…twin sister) and I were at times honorary theater peeps because we hung out with them so much.
Megan lives in the BK (Brooklyn) and is pursuing acting roles. She needed updated head shots (I think her last ones were from when we were all in college…correct me if I’m wrong Megan!). She was in town last weekend for a wedding so it worked out as a perfect time to shoot some head shots. Megan and her husband were staying with our friend Alicia due to the cold weather and knowing that Alicia’s apartment gets really great light I decided we could just shoot them at her house. Not only did we use Alicia’s apartment, Alicia was also kind enough to do Megan’s makeup and assist me when needed. Alicia, you did a kick ass job holding the reflector for me! :) I almost forgot…Alicia also provided some accessories for Megan to wear.
I had a blast hanging out and laughing with both of you & I can’t wait to hear about all the amazing roles you get Megan!
A little sexy star for the camera…this is the fun thing about doing head shots for actors & actresses, you are allowed to have a little more fun and you really want to express a variety of emotions. Megan was awesome and humored me while I was making suggestions for posing. She was also always ready, we’d be talking and I’d have the camera down and as soon as I brought the camera up to take a photo Megan would stop mid sentence and give me a smile or pose.
I love the black & white one on the left. Such a striking image…You are a gorgeous gal Megan!!! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Can you even handle Megan’s green eyes! Can you say STUNNING?!
Megan was down for bundling up and heading outside for a bit. I think we were outside for maybe 20 minutes (if that) We were lucky and had some really great locations right near Alicia’s house. We had to trudge through a little snow, but it wasn’t too bad. Since it was nice and sunny it didn’t feel quite as cold as it was. It also helped that Megan had this amazing patterned coat. As soon as I saw it hung up at the house I asked if we were going to shoot wearing it. This was at the library in Beverly, we had people coming in and out of the doors, luckily they always chose the door on the left so we could work around it.
I love these last 2 images, so pretty. Thanks again Megan for letting me hang out and have fun shooting your head shots. :)

We were introduced to Tracy through Danielle Bergeron of Frills & Thrills Wedding & Event Planning. Tracy is starting out in the Wedding & Event planning business and one of the things on her to do list was to have some professional head shots taken. We were happy to shoot them for her. We had free reign of the Library in Methuen because her Aunt & Mom both work there (I’ve already told her that I would love to take advantage of the connection of shooting in the library when it’s closed in the future). It was so fun to shoot in, we both did a few walk-throughs to scope out all the best locations with the best light and a variety of backgrounds. There are still so many places we didn’t shoot too.
We set up a little work station for her, gathering some wedding books & magazines from the library. We joked that the entire library was her office.
We had to snag a photo of her shoes! Who does love shots of shoes!
We had a great time with Tracy and look forward to working with her on weddings & events in the future!
If you are a bride looking for a wedding planner definitely check Tracy out www.detailedweddingplanning.net. You can also find her at Natasha’s Bridal in Methuen ready to help you find the perfect dress.
If you are a wedding professional in need of updated head shots we want to help. A professional head shot makes sure you are sending a good first impression. We are offering a great special for head shots, $250 for the session which includes a cd of edited images ready for print & the web. We will deliver between 30-50 final images for you to use on your website, blog, facebook page & any other promotional materials. Your head shots should show your personality, we can do a couple outfits if you want and we suggest you choose a special location for the session. email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your session.
We had 2 sessions yesterday. It was a busy day for sure, but also lots of fun. I don’t want to say too much, I’ll save it for when I do a full post on these 2 sessions. I am visiting with my twister (twin sister) because she has MLK day off from school.
Thanks to Erin & Matt for braving the cold & for Tracy for getting us free range of the Methuen Library.
