When I made the decision to launch the new Meredith Perdue website earlier this year, I realized I should probably update my own bio pictures as well. After all, my favorite photo of Orvis & I, the one I’ve always used, is well over two years old. Now that the name of my business was actually my name, I knew it was extremely important to have an up to date photo.
You might think, that for a photographer, having your own photo taken would be a piece of cake, right? Not so much. I am basically an awkward mess anytime I step foot in front of the camera. Really, it can be quite painful for everyone involved.
I am incredibly fortunate, however, that one of my closest and most trusted friends is a wonderfully gifted photographer, Alexandra Roberts. I knew that if anyone could help me conquer my fears of being on the other side of the lens, it would be Alex. And, of course, she did just that.
Alex, you’re brilliant. Thank you for helping me actually enjoy having my photos taken, something I thought would never happen in a million years.
All of the above images were shot on film by Alex, except the last two with Orvis!
