Elizabeth James, a business professional who lives near Peoria, contacted me to make some new pictures for her LinkedIn profile. We met here in Lincoln for a session, enjoyed getting to know each other, and made pictures.
Elizabeth was kind enough to send me a thoughtful testimony about her experience:
I feel very fortunate to have found Michael when searching for professional photographers online. I was in need of professional photographs to use on LinkedIn and other business materials but was not sure what to look for in a photographer. Michael was very prompt and detailed in his communications leading up to our session, and his professionalism and care made me feel completely at ease with the process.
I had never sought out professional photography before, so I was not familiar with the process or what to expect. Before we began the session, he described the process--what we were going to do step by step--and then gave me clear instruction every step of the way. His warmth, demeanor, and sense of humor put me completely at ease.
Also, I was very impressed with the quality of his equipment and setup. And the turnaround was incredibly fast; Michael helped me narrow down the proofs, provided me a subset to select from, and then had the finished photographs to me by next day. Amazing! Everything about my experience with Michael was top-notch and greatly exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend him, and I am sure I will be a repeat client.
The photo at the top of the post is the one Elizabeth is using for her social media profiles. Since she brought a couple of outfit changes, both professional and casual, here are a couple others from the session that I especially like as well.
Many thanks, Elizabeth, for the terrific session.
