Last week I had some professional photos taken by a beautiful and talented photographer by the name of Melissa Song. It has been almost 2 years since I began Drizzle Kitchen and I realized it was about time that I do the big girl thing and get some well-done pics as the cannon just wasn’t cutting it anymore.
So I searched and searched and surfed and surfed and finally came across some inspiration on the Internet. I knew I wanted some pictures that captured my personality and passion. Pictures that didn’t involve me in a chef coat behind a stove. I wanted color, excitement and food love all the while in a very urban, crisp space.
Melissa managed to coax out a fabulous photo personality from behind my nervousness and shot some great pictures! Not that I ever doubted her talents, but I certainly doubted my ability to “perform” in front of a camera. The first few shots I was certainly getting my bearings about me, but after about 10 minutes I began to enjoy myself! She did such a great job making me feel more comfortable than silly, and gave me some great tips from when she used to model.
If you would like some more information about Melissa and her photography (she also does family events, pregnancy photos and the most adorable children’s pics in addition to headshots) you can check out her website at www.melissasongphotography.com. Also, if you want to see some more examples of professional shots (and more of my pics!) you can checkt out this site, www.gallery.me.com/songphotography/100819 .
Thanks Mel, it was fun and we’ll definitely be doing another shoot soon!
