Greg went all out for his 30th birthday shoot. We know I don't photograph a lot of men often, so I was very excited when I got his inquiry
I remember stumbling upon a male birthday shoot on Instagram and the gentleman had a really nice suit, but he was holding some balloons. It was so elegant, but fun. So Greg & I did our own version of that shoot.
Greg was our Santa at the studio this past Christmas and he did such a great job with the kids. He is a nurse and an aspiring actor, so we did a few different headshots for him as well.
"My proudest achievement yet is finishing nursing school and passing my boards the week before my birthday this year. When I started this journey I was 20. It took a while but I finally made it!"
"I look forward to manifesting and completing every single goal and dream of mine. I look forward to many vacations, new life experiences, more wisdom, and the opportunity to live and laugh with the people I love both old and new to come."
Greg wanted a shot of the back of his shirt, so I asked him what "metamorphosis" means to him.
"That shirt embodies my current state in life. If you had met me when I was 20, heck even just last year, I was a completely different person. From my thought process, to my confidence, and even just physically different. I’ve worked hard and God has blessed and protected me during my 20’s or as I like to call it the 'cocooning.' I feel like I finally achieved metamorphosis. The place where my intentions, efforts, and prayers are finally achieved."
That's beautiful, Greg! I'm so happy for you!
My guy now has photos that he can post of Haitian Independence Day and Haitian Flag Day. Just keep all 3 of these photos in rotation haha.
I was impressed by Greg's first suit. Very clean and crisp. Then he stepped out into another crisp suit and I was even more impressed.
"I’m an old soul. I like the classy clean look of a nice suit. I also enjoy wearing something that you don’t see everyday and/or clothes that say/mean something. I see my clothing as an extension of my personality, naturally."
Ok, so these next few headshots are my absolute FAVORITE. I took my time with the lighting to make sure that everything is perfect. Not that I usually rush my lighting, but I had a vision for Greg and I made sure I brought it to fruition. Ugh. I love these photos so much!!
We love a Black King!
Greg, I hope you had an AMAZING birthday!
