I have a few clients that have their own background and this is from one of those sessions. I started shooting for this company nearly 10 years ago, and I was picking up where another photographer had left off. He had a backdrop very similar to what you see here, and the clients wanted the new images to match the previous ones. I helped them find and purchase a similar backdrop since I knew I wouldn’t need it for myself. It’s not what I would choose, but sometimes I have such a great subject that I need to be willing to post it here for Headshot of the Week! despite the “dated” backdrop. In this shot Karelle looks so great I had no choice 🙂
