Meet Jodi Payne – Professional Author Portrait Session

jodipayne creative process What a nice morning I had with author Jodi Payne! When we were talking about what she envisioned for her author portraits and headshots, I told her that I’d visited her website and it seemed like her contemporary gay romances were playful and optimistic, as opposed to dark and moody. At which point, she laughed and told me, “um, yes. VERY playful.” Her book Creative Process comes out Sept 25.

Jodi was a total champ for these writer headshots–really natural and unpretentious. She told me straight up, “I’m not a person who can smile with her mouth closed.” And I think that probably sums up what I gleaned of her personality during our short photography portrait session–that she goes all in. From what I hear, her characters do as well (wink wink nudge nudge.)

Want to talk about scheduling a professional portrait session with me? I’d love to hear about your adventures and goals so we can craft a headshot that projects the “you” that you want your audiences to see. Reach out!
