I love love love being a coach. I love love love being a photographer. I’m continuously amazed when I can find ways for those two things to support each other. I mean, that’s certainly my plan: that my photography will enhance my coaching and my coaching will enhance my photography. But when it really works out that way, I find myself just tickled with glee.
A few weeks ago, I got to take some portraits of Joelle Lydon, who was my (ever-so-wonderful) coach for a whole three months. I’ll admit that I was sad when our three months of coaching were over, but when she asked me to take her picture soon after, I perked right back up. You see, most coaching is done over the phone, so I’d never met Joelle.
Well, lucky me, I got to meet Joelle, share a delectable cup of coffee with her and her son (who’s a budding photographer himself!), and take her picture. Talk about a jackpot of a day, huh?
Joelle is stunning, both inside and out. She’s a gentle, intuitive coach, and the revelations I had during each session were always subtle yet deep. She’s wise and spiritual, yet still pragmatic, and she’s the one who got me going with the whole investigation of pleasure in the first place.
And if you’d like to learn about having me photograph you, hop on over here, and we’ll talk.
