Heartshot Headshots with Katie Bowman

October 20, 2011

My friend Katie and I recently went on a little excursion here in Dallas to a district called Deep Ellum and a trendy little coffee shop called The Pearl Cup that serves the best chai tea lattes in big porcelain mugs.

The purpose of our outing was to take some headshots for this blog and for Start Marriage Right.

Katie is a very gifted photographer, writer, and do-it-yourself guru. Both of us have seminary degrees, our husbands are both currently in seminary, and we both live in seminary housing. Go figure! We also went to the same college in Virginia and have spoken on/taught abstinence in public schools (Katie still does).

I guess you can say that we’re like peas in a pod when we get together.

It’s always awkward to have pictures taken of yourself (with no one else in them). It can feel vain and weird, but I knew Katie would be the best person for the job. She did an amazing job putting me at ease and captured exactly what I was hoping for. And it helped that she always has a way of making me laugh!

Head on over to her blog, Shades of Grey, to check out her work and give her some comment love.

    Hi Samantha! Great blog! I love Chai lattes…and really learned to love Chai living in Central Asia. I’m a stay-at-home Momma, too, round 2! My three sons are in college now, but we adopted a little girl from Thailand 4 years ago. She’s 10. I don’t know how old your kids are, but you may be interested in checking out my education blog. I have articles on there beginning with toddler issues, all the way through college.
    Blessings to you!
