Ju’Riese is the CEO of SafeSport, a Denver based non-profit. SafeSport works to ensure that the sports industry is free from abuse and misconduct. Their Director of Communications found me on Facebook and reached out to me for Denver CEO headshots. We spent two hours together, taking a variety of portraits. We chatted about the Olympics, downtown living, and all sorts of stuff. The two-hour session gave us plenty of time for multiple outfits and locations. SafeSport’s Director of Communications, Andrew, and Director of Marketing. Martha, were at the sessions as well. The three of them were able to give me great feedback on the photos as we created them so I could capture exactly what they were looking for!
Ju’Riese’s Denver CEO Headshots
Ju’Riese showed up with an overflowing suitcase of clothes and shoes. She was so prepared! She brought a wide range of outfits, from formal to casual, which is perfect for a headshot session. I love that she brought all her organization’s swag to wear for one of the sets of photos. It shows off the organization’s branding and it also gave us the opportunity to get some more casual and sporty portraits. Whenever she wore a blazer, she also added her SafeSport pin. I love how she found ways to represent her organization throughout the whole session.
One of my favorite photos from the session is the full-body portrait of her in front of the stairs. At her feet, are the words “Onward and Upward.” I love that we were able to work an inspirational message into the portrait. The light coming in through the windows and hitting the stairs behind her adds so much more interest to the image as well. Oh, and take a peek at her shoes too!
