One of the things I am loving so much about being a personal branding photographer is all the varying entrepreneurs I am working with! And Sharon is no exception. She is a Creativity Coach and she and her business Spark Your Creative are helping people discover or reconnect with their artistic and creative talents. She is doing this in a number of ways including workshops, a podcast, and a book club! So many of us want to put our gifts out there but often we find ourselves stuck or blocked, not knowing where to start or afraid we aren’t good enough. And Sharon’s mission is to help us move past this.
I met Sharon earlier this year when I was teaching a workshop on Yoga and the Spring Equinox. We found we have a mutual love for astrology, yoga, nature and other mystical things. Somewhere along the line I mentioned I was a photographer and soon after she contacted me for a personal branding session. Of course I was thrilled! Also, based on the fact that I’m also a yoga teacher she interviewed me about self-care for creatives on Facebook Live! Check it out here!
As part of the process she answered the questionnaire I had which revealed her website and logo branding. As soon as I saw her logo I knew a spot that I had to take her to! I also knew that we needed to capture her joyful spirit.
The day we met for her session also happened to be her birthday. It was a milestone birthday and what better way to celebrate and honor yourself! I was so excited that it happened to work out that way. We spent the afternoon tooling around Del Ray and Old Town Alexandria. And let me tell you, when I said give me a laugh, she brought it! 100%! Her laugh and joy is totally infectious. I guarantee as you check out these images you will be infected:)
I was so humbled and honored to photograph Sharon on her special day and create not only images she can use for her business but also to honor where she is in life!
