Headshots & Branding Portraits with Jen
Jen Connery needed some new branding images for her social media and website Intuitive Guidance by Jen
Jen was the lucky winner of a portrait and makeup session from a recent Ladies Artisan Market event that was donated by Surf City Images and Makeup Artistry by Linda. We chatted several times before the photoshoot about styling and location options. Jen mentioned a place in Kealakekua Bay that was very special to her. It’s a place that she would often visit to relax, conduct client readings, and take in the beauty of the rugged Kona coastline.
Jen arrived at the studio early for makeup. Linda did an excellent job of enhancing her features while keeping the look natural. I snapped a few headshots, and when I showed her, the look of happiness on her face almost brought tears to my eyes. After we gathered my gear and some clothing options, we headed to Kealakekua Bay for our beach portraits. We were a little concerned when it started raining on the way, but somehow it was clear when we arrived. Jen pointed out a large rock on the shoreline that she always envisioned being photographed on. After a few photos on the beach, Jen carefully climbed the rock and posed for some epic sunset photos. To top off the day we saw a pueo (Hawaiian owl) jump out onto the road on the drive back home. Neither Jen nor I had ever seen one before. It was a magical and perfect day.
I’m so happy that it was Jen who won our portrait package and the opportunity to connect with this intuitive beauty.
