As I’ve been working on and promoting this site over the past year, it became more and more apparent that I needed a professional head shot. One thing I love seeing on blogs is the blogger! I love reading your stuff, but I like to put a face with a name, so to speak. It’s easy to forget, sitting over here on this end of the internet, that there is a real person on the other end of the internet reading what I write. As much as I’m not a fan of a personal photo shoot, I needed to put a face to Growing Up Gabel!
Finding a photographer to take the head shots wasn’t hard at all. I had run in to Katie Meeks at Kklicks Photography in a local bloggers group and I had spent a good year leaving comments on the gorgeous pictures on her website. I knew I wanted her to take my photos and while we were at, we had her take a few of my husband, too. And we even did a few of us together, just because we could. We hadn’t had photos taken of just us since our wedding!
When you become a mom, you quickly become adept at family photos. And you spend ALL your time making sure everyone else looks great. So it was so odd to have the camera focused on me, and me alone. But Katie put me at ease right away and did her best to get me to loosen up. She was so fun to work with and was open to whatever we wanted to do. And the pictures speak for themselves.
Along with her photography business, Katie also runs 702Events.com, a website for Las Vegas events (702 is our area code!). If you live in Vegas, 702Events.com will keep you abreast of all the weekly happenings around the valley. And if you are planning a trip to Vegas, you definitely want to sign up for their emails and check out their app so you don’t miss anything while you are here. 702Events.com also offers promotion for local businesses and events. In fact, they have a terrific promotion special available until April 13, 2013. Just check out their website for more information.
