Meet Shyla



When she first asked, I wasn't sure what she exactly meant. Her words flew past my ears like darts, missing my mind and landing on an unbeknownst dartboard. I listened to her voicemail message again and again, making sure I understood what she was asking. With my eyebrows on the verge of knotting, JD asked what was wrong. I turned to him with a petrified look and said, Shyla wants me to take her headshots.

Shyla and I have been friends for almost a year, after initially meeting while assisting Mike with his seminars. We both drove to Las Vegas last year for WPPI with Mike and his wife Julie, so she got to know how crazy I am after riding six loooooong hours with no escape :) Since then, we've watched our businesses grow and remained close.

When she called requesting headshots, my first reaction was Oh.my.god.she's.a.photographer?!?! And then my second reaction was Oh.my.god.she's.a.photographer?!?! There's a true honor in photographing a peer, but with this honor comes performance anxiety. However, standing in the warm glow of the sun this afternoon, we had a ball hanging out and having fun. Be on the look out for her new website coming out later this week!

Here are a few of my favorites...
