I've been fortunate enough this year to have a pretty steady stream of work. I received an email not too long ago to do some portraits for Shashi that ultimately she wanted to be able to send to her family in India.
When I arrived, I asked if she had any pictures of herself either in her place or online and she didn't - hence, the request for headshots :-)
Shashi was a self proclaimed introvert and seemed a little uneasy in front of the camera so we took a little time getting to know each other. It didn't take long to discover that she is a writer in her off time in addition to her daytime work. Throughout her life, she's interview some interesting people and talking about these interviews, is what I discovered, made her comfortable in front of the camera and allowed us to get some genuine smiles from her. Shashi, it was nice working with you and I hope your family enjoys the images we were able to create.
