If You Hate Getting Your Picture Taken, You Will Love Getting it Done with Joan

I absolutely hate getting my picture taken. It has nothing to do with how I look (I know I am not 25 or a size 0). I just can’t stand posing. I don’t like stiff, unnatural poses that make people look like they are severe, intense, unfriendly or about to be led off to the guillotine. About 10 years ago, I had a professional picture taken by Joan Heffler. I remembered how pleasant she made the experience and how awesome my picture turned out. I received so many compliments. I needed to refresh my picture and knew exactly the person I was going to call – Joan Heffler. Even though I am not the best subject to photograph, Joan made it fun and captured “me” – the glint in my eye, the ready smile, and the approachable nature. That’s who I am – so I don’t want to look unfriendly, stern, or overly glamorous in my corporate picture. Joan will help you to select the shot that captures your personality, not just your outer appearance. And, she makes you look great – each and every time. Thank you, Joan, for not just being an amazing photographer, but for being an amazing, “real” person. And, if you listen to Joan about your makeup, hair, and the clothing you should wear (all hints in her “preparing for the session” section of her website), your picture comes out better than you might have imagined – this lady knows her stuff!

I’m a photographer, and when it came to getting updated professional headshots, there’s no one I wanted to capture my personality in pictures other than Joan. I was familiar with her work as she previously took portraits for my organization. She is professional, thorough, and gets great results. I am so happy with my portraits, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for terrific photos at a very reasonable value! Thanks Joanie!
