Tammy was looking for something to use on her various online profiles, especially her professional profile on LinkedIN.

We decided that an outdoor shoot in business attire would be an interesting combination that would suit her needs.

Here are the best five photos:




For those of you who read this blog who are “real” professional portrait photographers, I’d love to get your honest feedback on these.
