I had so much fun working with Kelsey on her Gravelly Point headshots session! I met Kelsey at Gravelly Point in Arlington, Virginia, right outside National Airport last week for her session and not only did we have beautiful weather, we had beautiful glowy light! Woot woot!
Kelsey was the winner of Alexandria Living Magazine‘s launch sweepstakes, so she won all kinds of awesome prizes, including a gift certificate to a one hour portrait session with yours truly! Kelsey’s passion is social media marketing and travel, so we covered all those bases in her Gravelly Point headshots session. We were able to show off her professional side with some classic headshots poses for her her LinkedIn profile, as well as her creative, adventurous side which relate perfectly to her her side hustles.
Yes, I just said side hustleS – plural! Kelsey works in social media marketing by day, and on the side, she does social media freelancing and manages two Instagram accounts (find them here and here) focused around her love of travel. Kelsey has lived overseas three different times (LIVED, not just visited, y’all!) and speaks Spanish! She loves to travel and plan adventures, so you know we had to be sure to get at least one shot of her with an airplane flying overhead!
What I love about Kelsey’s session is that we could’ve gone in so many different directions with her location, but I think we found the perfect spot. Gravelly Point is right on the water, by a bridge, has lots of natural elements with tall grasses and trees, and like I said, it’s right by the airport, an adventurer’s natural habitat! haha Kelsey was game to try all the poses I had her doing (haha!) and even brave enough to dodge the very serious (and sometimes cranky) bikers on the trail for those ‘middle of the road shots’!
I couldn’t have lucked out more with the winner of the sweepstakes! Thank you, Kelsey, for your adventurous spirit, and I hope these photos take you and your business far!
