People need portraits done for all sorts of things these days. LinkedIn profiles, job applications, website features, Facebook, Tinder, you name it. Even if you don't want to do it, maybe your mom wants you to, and you should listen to her. One day you'll look back at the photos, maybe by yourself or maybe with your family, and you'll realize "Man...I should have listened to mom more often" because you really appreciate having had that moment of life being captured. Damn, you looked good! (Ehem, and still do <3 )
