Portrait and Headshot Photography of DKB (Debra Katz Berkelhammer) by Mark Lovett Photography
It’s fun shooting candids (and not so candid) outdoors but when I want to keep the background in the background, focus more on the person and go for a more classic look, my studio works well. It’s a little easier to change outfits too!
Debra is a very beautiful person on the inside and the outside and I tried to bring that out in these images. She is also very talented wedding, mitzvah and event planner in Potomac, MD and her business is DKB Distinctive Events at DKBevents.com. Be sure and check her out if you are ever in need of these services.
I understand that Debra will be using one of these images in the bio of her new autobiographical book coming out soon. She has an amazing story to tell about her recovery from a devastating illness. She is a true inspiration!
For you photographers out there, I enjoyed using a Nikon D800 body, a Profoto 22″ unmodified beauty dish, and 600R strobes. With her coloring I am pleased with the choice of clothing and mid tone neutral background. Debra was very fun to work with and took direction very well.
