What comes to mind when you think about the term “headshot?” An actor or model trying to find a job? Or maybe it’s a department store studio or the malls of yesteryear with big hair? Headshots have come a long way in the last 10-15 years and thank goodness! What used to be awkward and uncomfortable has become an opportunity to really showcase who you are!
One of our favorite offerings, especially now that we've moved into our studio, is working with people for lifestyle branding and headshots. We love meeting new people, learning about their unique ventures, and supporting independent businesses. Our goal is to make our clients feel comfortable and create some truly fabulous photos- people are often surprised at how good they look and we love being able to show them just that!
So, who even needs a headshot these days? and truly the answer is Everyone! Many people are used to seeing them for business whether as a LinkedIn profile or in an “About” section of a business’s website. But there can be so many more uses for them! It is a great way to build your personal brand whether through a website or other social media outlets. We have people use these services for speaking engagements, programs, or even dating apps. Hiring a professional photographer for headshots can create a strong first impression and really capture your personality through posing, location, composition, lighting, etc., all areas that a professional has the experience and equipment to make happen!
For us, we want to make sure that the whole process feels easy and seamless from an initial inquiry to the final product. Once a session is booked, we help you and/or your team prepare for a great shoot day. This can include sharing our experience with wardrobe options that will not only photograph well but also convey your brand and personal style. It may also be setting up different environments to shoot in such as indoors with natural light, studio lighting, or an outdoor space. Throughout the planning process, we want to provide guidance so that the shoot conveys the feeling you are hoping to create or message you want to share. Don’t worry, we promise to help you with posing so that you feel comfortable! After the shoot, we send over a proof gallery so you have a chance to pick your favorites before we head into post-production. From there, you will receive your final images with the ability to download as high res or social media size while still maintaining the quality of the photo. We also are fortunate to be able to offer prints through our online gallery service.
