Happy Monday! I am officially back from vacation and I was super busy the whole dang time I was off work. While I was on vacation I went to Ohio and visited my Neenee, got a lot of appointments out of the way (doctor, dentist, etc) and I got professional headshots done!! Yes, you read that right, I finally got headshots done for the blog!!
I was going to do them earlier in the summer but the week I was scheduled to do them my house sold and then I had to find an apartment and start packing and then with my crazy night shift work schedule the timing was never right until now. But I am happy I waited because I found the perfect shirt to wear in the Nordstrom sale and the timing just felt right. Know what I mean?
So lets get to the photos, shall we?? I will link everything below!!

Confession – I have wanted to get headshots taken for a while now but never did because I never felt like I was never “ready”. I always had excuses like waiting until I lost weight or my hair was grown out and there were so many other reasons but I am so glad that I finally just did it. I realized there will never be a “perfect” time and so I just bit the bullet and did it and I am so glad I did!! I am more than happy with how these photos turned out and I hope you like them too!!
If you are in central Arkansas I used Julie Bird from Julie Bird Portraits for my photographer and she recommended Chanda Price aka Pretty by Price to do my hair and makeup and I highly recommend both of these ladies!! They both welcomed me into their homes and made me feel super comfortable. I had never met either before the day I got my photos done and it was like I had known them both forever!
So anyway, if you are on the fence about getting headshots or any kind of professional photography done I say just do it!! You won’t regret it!!
Have you ever gotten professional headshots??

I absolutely love the photos and your makeup looks awesome! You have the prettiest smile! It’s about time I had headshots done again. My daughter is a photographer so she’s my go-to girl when I need photos of myself.
Now all of these headshots turned out great looking. Wonderful you finally had them done and shared them with us. Your makeup is perfect as always .
Glenda Cates says
Perfect outfit and what a beautiful smile you have. As for Headshots like you I need to do them but keep finding excuses not to. Although I am in Texas I can’t use the ladies you used or it might make getting them done easier.
Amber Myers says
I love these. I should do them one day. Maybe I will at some point, I just hate having my photo taken. I always look awkward.
You had absolutely beautiful head shots. I think we all are all our own worst critics! I have had the same issues as you. I have not wanted to go somewhere because I didn’t look perfect. I think we should all just love the way we are and help others when they are not as sure of themselves.
These are some fabulous headshots and you are beautiful! I love how your personality shines, and yet you look entirely professional.
Terri Steffes says
I haven’t done this but like you, I felt I wasn’t ready. I should just do it, you are absolutely right. Now is the best time!
Your headshots look gorgeous! I love the way they turned out. I can’t wait to get mine done. This is total motivation to get my photos done.
You look so great! You look like a actress. And I am like you, don’t like professional headshots, but you inspired me.
These are really great pics! Photographer knows what they’re doing and you look great!

I’ve never had a professional headshot done, I don’t even like being in a regular picture much. Yours came out really great, she did a wonderful job.

I love how they captured your attitude. That is the kind of view a pro can really bring to something like this. Love it!
