I had known of Alison for about six years and I even photographed her at a literary reading way back in 2007. Last week I was fortunate to get to know her better and be her photographer for some social media head shots. We did these portraits on location - some with a softbox and some with natural light with a silver reflector.
Hair and make-up was done at Ottawa's York Street Spa, and they did a phenomenal job. To say she she showed up for the session 'photo-ready' was an understatement! She was perfect! She had several wardrobe changes for different looks. Some with glasses and some without. The afternoon was extremely fun and energetic!
did a few in black & white to see how it would look. used the new Silver Efex Pro 2 plug in.
