Canmore, Headshots, Portraits, Heather, Hendrie, Soulful
I knew just the approach I would take when Heather Hendrie approached me for a business headshot shoot in Canmore. She wanted photos for her LinkedIn profile, but her new nature therapy business was in the works, as was her book, and I wanted to create something timeless, classic, and soulful – the type of photograph that could adorn the back of her book, feature her on her websites, and grace her marketing material – all of those things happened. Knowing that she is a brilliant writer, a therapist, a generous soul, and a lover of nature, the shoot was about not just creating a standard business headshot, but something that reflected her artistry, kindness and sparkle. We shot in studio and went for soft and flattering lighting, with a non-distracting background to really put the focus on her. We made a variety of shots, but ultimately this was the moment there was a beautiful connection with the camera – a genuine smile, and also the slightest tears welling up. It was a unique and wonderful shoot and a timeless moment was collected.    
Here are some kind words that Heather left for me after the shoot:
"I can provide nothing less than a glowing review for Sam McRae. I absolutely love the portraits he shot for my LinkedIn profile - and in fact, I had such fun in the process that I’d do it all over again in a minute! Sam is the consummate professional and produced his phenomenal work in a timely manner. He is a master at his craft - if you want gallery-quality work, he is the person to hire. Sam’s attention to detail and the way he uses his tools brings to mind photographic masters from an earlier time. He’s reliable, trustworthy and kind and I could not be more grateful to have had an opportunity to work with him!"
