Elizabeth James, a business professional who lives near Peoria, contacted me to make some new headshots 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.
