I look forward to certain projects each year and always hope that I am asked to photograph them again, and one of them is Powerful Women for AY Magazine. I love the chance to meet each of these women and hear their stories of success, and life. Each one is nominated for a different reason, so it makes each experience and photo unique.
April Seggebruch, VP of Finance Operations at Movista, was recognized for her outstanding entrepreneurial achievements. April is a very busy person, and when we finally were able to coordinate schedules, we had a great time. She’s a good one for a laugh!
Brenda Gullett, owner of Brenda Gullett Associates, was nominated for her work in education. As we were shooting, Brenda talked about her sons and we realized that I was friends with her youngest son. I’m not really sure why I didn’t put it together before the shoot, but it sure made for a great ice breaker. I really enjoyed talking with her and learning her trick for a great smile in her photographs. “YES!”
The fnal person I photographed for Powerful Women was Martha D. Moore, owner of McCormick Works Inc. and Seal Tite of Arklahoma LLC. I love that at the last minute Martha decided not to wear her suit, and put on more everyday attire including her hog hunting hat. I think one of the most important things when having your photo taken, is to be you… and be comfortable. I photographed Martha following several days of snow in Northwest Arkansas, and it seems that the only time it snowed was during our shoot. It was a cold, but fun shoot.
