Cyndi and I had such a lovely time earlier this week to get her updated outdoor headshots at the Arlington Reservoir. We managed to sneak in her portrait session before the heat and humidity really cranked up (it’s been a serious scorcher this past week!) and had a lovely time exploring. I love getting to show this space to my clients since it’s so underrated if all you know is the view from the main road or the swimming beach! Cyndi lives in Belmont, but drives past the Arlington Reservoir frequently, and was super excited to get to check it out.
Cyndi needed updated headshots for her website, BostonTechMom which is being redesigned by the amazing Kate Gilbert of WordPress SuperService. Boston Tech Mom connects parents with high-quality STEM programs that expose kids to technology in fun, meaningful, and engaging ways, and I will say I learned a lot just poking around for a few minutes — can’t wait to see it after the redesign is finished! You should definitely check it out if you’ve got kids who are even remotely interested in STEM!
One thing that Cyndi did that was really helpful was that she sent me cell phone shots of the outfits she was considering before her session so we could chat about what might work best for her. We do walk around a lot in my portrait sessions, so paring down to your favorites is important so you don’t end up schlepping too much stuff from spot to spot, but a few options are super helpful! Wondering how else to best prepare for your upcoming headshot session? Check out my session prep guide here.
I hope Cyndi had a great time getting her updated outdoor headshots for her new website — here are a few of my favorites from our time together:
