This was my second job for Dr. Bobbi Jones at Zen Wellness. These jobs are simple corporate headshots and a few custom content photos of her and her doctors at work. I was afraid I may have bitten off a little more than I could chew, not because of the job itself, but because I already had an assignment for Outburn scheduled (back in October) for the next day, and creating an editing schedule that allows me to complete both jobs on time would be a challenge. I tend to overshoot shows-because of self doubt-and editing portraits requires extra time and care, and Dr. Jones is someone I want as repeat business so I can not let her products suffer. So, I took my time with both assignments. I usually have my finalized photos turned in days before the actual deadline, but this time, I was going to have to turn them in on the deadline to make sure that everyone, including myself, is happy with their images.
This shoot was fantastic. Dr. Jones is a lovely, soft spoken, and kind woman who brings out the best in everyone around her. Her staff is just as pleasant to be around. I especially enjoyed her receptionist, Jamie, who was all smiles and laughter and took it upon herself to make my life (and post production) easier by using her skills as a hairstylist and make up artist to make sure all the woman were camera ready. (I do not employ and hair stylist or make up artist at this time.) Even though this was my second shoot doing this exact thing, I had not yet met the women whom I photographed this day. There were some employees who could not make it to the last shoot over a year ago, and a few of them were hired since then.
