Personal Branding Shoot
Danielle Walker of Against all Grain

When I was in high school, one of my favorite things to do was dress up my girlfriends and take photographs of them. A couple of decades later and it still is my favorite thing to do! Not only that, I get to team up with my sis (Lindsay Skog) for hair and makeup! I don't think there is anything quite like the feeling you get when you love a photograph of yourself. As much as I prefer being behind the camera as opposed to in front of it, as a brand and a business owner, it's imperative that I share just as much of myself as my work. It seems everywhere you turn people on on their phones communicating or scrolling through a gazillion images on social media. What will be more memorable to your fans? An image of something you made or an image of you? You are the only one with your face and personality and experiences and goals. Just like I am the only one who can give you the Jennifer Skog Experience :)

We are addicted to making women feel confident and beautiful in front of the camera and somehow creating a comfortable atmosphere and capturing authentic personal images is our forte! We love what we do and hope to be a part of your story for 2017!

You may have seen this beauty a few dozen times in my portfolio. Over the past 10 years, we planned our weddings together, suffered losses together, and built successful businesses together. This woman has survived more than anyone I know and continues to rise. I cherish her friendship and am beyond impressed with her strength, creativity and inspiration. If you don't know her story, go check her out, she's quite inspiring... 3 x NYT Best Selling Author & Speaker, Danielle Walker. Danielle shares her story of beating an auto-immune disease through healthy paleo cooking, recipes and life with her online journal, Against All Grain.

Personal Branding Shoot
Grant Parr with Gameface Performance

I got a message from the Senior Varsity Heartthrob - oops! I mean, Quarterback, asking if I was available to do his headshots for his new Consulting Business. I'm not sure we ever actually met, I was a little shy freshman who observed more than anything, but our town has a small town feel to it and somehow over the course of 20 years and mutual friends we ended up being FB friends.

I showed up at his place excited to dig into his story and find out more about his goals for his consulting business and basically catch up on the past 20 years or so. After his football career was cut way too short due to an injury, 2 hip replacement surgeries, and 3 years of disability, he received his degree in Communications, moved on from sports and spent the next 17 years in tech sales.

I can't imagine how incredibly frustrating it must be to be forced to throw in the towel on something you love so much. I often think what would happen if I didn't have a right arm, what the hell would I do? Fortunately, Grant found a way he can still fuel his passion for sports and coaching. He decided to go back to school, got his Master's Degree and has started his own Mental/Sports Performance Consultant business focusing on high impact and combat sports. Moms and Dads, Mental Awareness is HUGE especially when you think about raising a son or a daughter to be a professional athlete. They are one bad play away from being ridiculed on social media or like Grant, an injury away from no longer playing. He's here to up your mental game, go check him out! GAMEFACE PERFORMANCE

Grant, huge congrats on bringing your passion back into your reality and thank you for sharing your story with me. I'm thrilled for you and can't wait to see what you bring to the game. xo
