These Atlanta headshots are for Emory’s Pediatric Infectious Disease Doctors, Researchers and Staff – the women who are diligently serving our children and their health.
How awesome are these beautiful, powerful & brilliant women who work tirelessly to reduce the impact of pediatric infectious disease.
Thank you wonderful women!!
I am so moved by this massive collection of inspiring women. During our sessions, many of these women were pregnant, had littles, told me about families overseas, gigantic service projects, and life changing research that they are serving. I could not have been more honored to have been surrounded by a stronger set of people.
Each face that greets me is so different from the next, and what makes each person laugh, give a still gaze or a sly smile is never the same. When a portrait is finished, as much of the expression is in the eyes as is in anything else – they know and they tell where is a person’s energy is in this particular moment. Making it so important to find that place with each person where they can really shine that thing on the inside that helps to show their brightness, something telling about their character and what kind of wonderfulness they bring.
One of they key components of my Atlanta headshots portrait sessions is our conversation while we are shooting. We keep talking and we find what makes this person feel a good joy, offering a smiling face, or contemplative in the kind of way that you can feel something about that person’s experience. My dry humor often finds its place as we are chatting and it makes for a good balance with the people I am creating with. Portraits often happen in the middle of the workday and that transition between being deeply invested in a project to having a portrait made is an important one. So, I really value an environment that is gentle and lighthearted and really easy to be present in. I am constantly seeking a portrait for each person that is true to their character, compelling and natural.
I’ll do another post about the narrative images we collected from these sessions. And, probably the also heroic male doctors will end up in that post! I was just so moved by the women, I had to do a post all about it. There are so many beautiful ones, I am super excited to share!! We did 4 days of photography over the last several months and collected Atlanta headshots portraits of the PEDS:ID Doctors, Researchers and Staff, Group Portraits of key departments, and then, my favorite part – narratives images that show the doctors and researchers working in their lab spaces.
