Business headshot, portrait or that ‘selfie’ with friends – the ‘lived-in face’ can’t be hidden. We all had been scarred by life somehow or another. The scars manifest in wrinkles or sometimes in deep edged lines of pain.
But no matter what, a ‘lived-in face’ can never hide our true beauty. Creatures created by the Master.
As photographer, I aim to capture that beauty – even if it is a business headshot!

This lived-in face has seen the years go by at such a wild and unforgiving pace.
My powers are weak, though my aims may be high, and troubles are all bound to leave their trace.
And while I always feel the need to brace myself against life’s storms, I know that I can never win. Death always plays his ace.
This lived-in face has seen the years go by. It’s little help to know the rules apply to every member of the human race.
Dark clouds are growing in my evening sky at such a wild and unforgiving pace.
In this vast universe I have my place, but can my thoughts outlast me when I die?
or speak to those in other time or space?
My powers are weak, though my aims may be high. Yet while dark thoughts of gloom may multiply, to let them win would be a sad disgrace, though many things may make me want to cry, and troubles are all bound to leave their trace.
Yes, my mortality I must embrace, not waste my time in always asking why,
or fearing not to do things just in case.”
I’ll dry those tears. There’s no point to deny this lived-in face.
