The Art of Professional Headshots and Personal Branding

The corporate headshot has evolved. Today, it is very contemporary, highly styled, and it needs to immediately set you apart from your competitors. This type of “Personal Branding” is perfect for Lawyers, Doctors, Real Estate Agents, Business Executives, Authors, Creatives, Bloggers, Artists, Designers, and Musicians alike. It is also equally important to style hair, makeup and wear clothing that matches your brand or type of business.

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Your image is what your clients will remember.  We shoot until we get a headshot you are happy with, and use state-of-the-art technology so you can see your image in large format on an iPad as we take them. Your finished headshot is photo retouched to give you the best possible image and then emailed to you with in 2 days. You can choose color, black and white or both. Because everyone’s features are different we will alter the lighting setup to give you the most flattering image. Stop using those headshots and business portraits you had taken 10 years ago. Be up to date. Make an impression, be current! We offer studio lighting and a natural light option and a bit more feminine posing to give my female clients a more contemporary flattering portrait option.
