“I set up a date (with friends who agreed to be models!) and then realized I knew nothing about what I wanted! Mary Claire talked me down off the ceiling, helped me determine which aspects of my business I wanted to highlight, and also the spirit I wanted to capture. She guided me in make-up, colors, space needs. Her prompt arrival to do set-up let me relax so I could actually do what I needed her to capture. She had a sensitive approach to direction that allowed the “models” to be natural, enjoy the process. And she had accurately estimated the time it would take so no-one’s patience was exhausted.
……… The best part was that as we had discussed my head shot was not a posed one. She captured me doing what I love, in a casual moment. No grimace. I am happy about it, something I did not dare hope!”
