This past weekend, I had the pleasure of photographing the splendid Sharryn Cobbs-Harewood. I met Sharryn not too long ago at a women’s networking meeting. She was just so kind and giving, it was easy to get to know her. Prior to this session, the last time I got a chance to see her was at a business women’s luncheon. It was a really nice affair and I was so honored to be invited. We’ve kept in contact since then via Facebook mostly. At one of the meetings we attended together, I submitted a complimentary headshot session as part of the raffle that was to take place at the end of the meeting. Well, you guessed it! Sharryn was the person who was chosen.
Just to tell you a little bit about Sharryn…she has a wonderful online boutique where she sells beautiful purses and accessories. If you’d like to check them out, please click here. She is also on Facebook under Club Gran Cee. As she says, she is the “proprietress of Gran Cee.” I must say, they are very fashionable, colorful and full of personality, just like Sharryn. In fact, Sharryn was so gracious to bring me a purse as a gift after the session. Color me surprised! She was just so thoughtful and I truly appreciated it. How cute is this purse? I mean, really.
When the pandemic hit, I just stopped photographing. Well, basically, the world just stopped. I didn’t feel comfortable photographing anyone and no one seemed comfortable being photographed. After a few months, I contacted Sharryn via Facebook to see if she was ready to take advantage of her prize. At that time, she was still a little hesitant and I totally understood and respected that. A bit later, Sharryn contacts me via Facebook Messenger letting me know she was ready. Not only would I get to photograph her, but I would also get to visit with her. It was definitely a win/win situation. We were finally able to nail down a date and time and it was on. When she arrived, she told me that she thought she had missed out on the opportunity but was happy that she had not. I had some jazz playing in the background because who doesn’t love jazz? Well, I guess the children I photograph would probably prefer Cocomelon. Anywho, we had a great session. Afterward, she selected her images, we conversed some more, and then she and her son had some errands to run. I totally forgot to tell you that her son came with her. He was kind of her hype man during the session. By the way, he too is an entrepreneur. He owns Jonny Baby BBQ He does catering and bartending and being in the south, it’s hard to go wrong with BBQ.
It was such a great session and below are a few images. Enjoy!
