Ahhh the perfect mix, headshots and glamour! Destiney’s main focus was to get a great headshot for the Rooted website. She is the Wedding and Event Coordinator at Rooted Salon and Apothecary in Lawrence, MA. They are a relatively new salon, of very experienced stylists, that focuses on giving you an elevated experience rooted in a passion for beauty, sustainability and good vibes.
Destiney arrives at the studio, cute as can be, wearing a super summery rust colored sundress. She is a total boho chic at heart! We catch up for a few minutes and then get to work. She interacts a lot with brides and wedding venues so she wants to keep her headshots light and fun. As she wants to look friendly and approachable, the vibe is smiles and laughs, with a dash of strong confidence!
Then We Glam
This was the first time Destiney has been to the studio, as our consult was over coffee. She noticed the studio wardrobe as soon as she walked in and was instantly intrigued. So after the headshots I asked her if she wanted to check it out. She jumped at the chance! Perfect! I told her to pick out anything she wanted and try it on.
She instantly fell in love with the black wrap dress. She came out of the dressing room and her eyes were big hearts, like the emoji! She looked beautiful and sounded like a giddy girl trying on her first princess dress! I love it when that happens!
Although the little girl sis always in there, the confidence and strength that was now present in front of the camera was amazing! I mean really, check this out!
After The Shoot
After the shoot I asked Destiney a few questions about what she thought and how she felt.
Me: Tell me a few things about you.
Destiney: I am a wife and mom who loves to spend time with her family. We love to camp in the woods.
Me: How did you feel about yourself before the session?
Destiney: I was a hustling, everyday mom, running errands, and feeling overwhelmed.
Me: How did you feel after your session?
Destiney: I felt beautiful and fierce!
Me: How did you feel when you saw your images?
Destiney: I was blown away! I couldn’t believe the powerful, beautiful, brilliant woman in the photos were me! It reminds you to take a step back and appreciate yourself.
Me: What would you tell someone that wasn’t sure about coming in for a session?
Destiney: Don’t ignore your own potential
YAAASS! Don’t ignore your own potential! Contact me for a consultation!
