Growing up, I never had the patience for clothes shopping. Never. It was always too much work and way too much fuss. I was never inspired by the clothes and I’d just take what fit and wasn’t too freakin’ uncomfortable.
As I grew into adulthood, I discovered that there are tons of us walking around with my same issues even into their adult life! I’ve met women who dress in all black when they go to work so they’ll be taken “seriously” because they are so bubbly that they just can’t make themselves feel like a grown up. One of these women I met even had the hardest time finding a job for a long time because the people interviewing her felt like she was “fake”. Well, she wasn’t – she just didn’t know that it was okay for her to be herself. Jeez. That sucks!
Anyway, as I kept on experimenting with my business I’ve discovered that my own clients are so very much like me. And me being the engineer that I am, I had to figure out a solution for this. What came from this problem? Well, two different solutions.
The first came in the form of a personality test. It teaches me how you think so I can speak directly to your needs and wants during a session. The second actually teaches me about how to dress you according to the core of your personality. I found out about it after studying many different personality types and quizzes and since none of my clients want to take this same amount of time to figure this out themselves…I figured out another way to get the answers I needed. It’s been incredibly fascinating to learn all of these things about my clients up front before we even get to the nitty-gritty of their portrait session.
If you are interested in learning about how to dress yourself for a portrait session, you can download the test for free by singing up for my email community on the home page. After you sign up, you’ll be redirected to a page with the download link.
Cheers for what makes you, you!
