Headshots with Dragon Studio in The Neon District in Norfolk

When I started talking to about rebranding Misty Saves the Day (or rather, accurately branding it in the first place), one of the biggest challenges that I faced was photos and content for the website.  Every photo that I had that I really loved of myself was with my family (of course), or was a headshot for a previous employer, or events that I was part of.  There wasn’t a photo that was quintessentially me, that represented who I am, who I want this brand to be, and not so corporate.

I want clients to know that’s what they’ll get with me.  A fun, professional person to handle the aspects of social media that they don’t necessarily want to handle.

I asked Mike Dragon with Dragon Studio to take them because I knew that I could be silly (because he’s pretty silly), but I knew that he would have a lot of fun with the color story that I was going for.  I felt super awkward, and I laughed a lot (and that may be my fault, and also a little bit Mike’s fault), but somehow, he pulled out some of the best pictures of me ever taken (if I do say so myself).  It helps that the awesome ladies at Veil Studios did my hair and make-up because Lord knows when I do it doesn’t look as awesome as it did that day!

Regardless, I’m excited about them.  I hope you are, too.  They easily made my day/week/month/year.  It’s so fun learning who you are and who your brand is, and it’s always better when you can do it with friends.
