Small Business Sessions: Erika Robeledo Real Estate
A real estate market like Phoenix needs experienced agents to move some of the best properties in the Valley. Erika Robeledo and Damien are some of the best. I had the pleasure of working with them to create some new headshots at one of their properties. August in Phoenix isn’t the ideal time to schedule a session, but we wanted to take advantage of some of the monsoon thunderheads hovering in the distance. Throughout July and August, you can count on beautiful sunsets and a possible chance of wind, rain and lightning. If you are really lucky, it rains.
This afternoon there was no rain, but the clouds in the distance and the last rays of sun against Piestewa Peak were the perfect setting for this wonderful couple! Not only did we capture some traditional, professional headshots, but we also included the girls. Who are the girls? Two delightful canines who call the property home.
Their elder lady is a sweet, 100+ pound Rodesian Ridgeback who protects her humans and watches over the property. The new girl is a white and tan puppy who was eager to pounce around as we worked, and dig in a tiny patch of dirt she found. Seriously? It was mostly brick, rocks and succulents, and she managed to find a 2 foot by 2 foot patch of land! Puppies are resourceful.
When I am working, my goal is to not only take a great portrait, but to show who my client is as a person. To give their potential clients a peek into who they are and what they love when they are off the clock. A love of animals is important and Erika and Damien are some of the best pet parents I have met. I was so glad they included them in the portraits.
Thank you for welcoming me into your property to take some updated headshots!
