Corporate headshots are my passion. A professional corporate headshot is a vital part of today’s media driven business world. Your business headshot, or corporate executive portrait, is often the first impression you make to your clients and peers. Your head shot, as a component of your branding, needs to reflect the personality and tone of your industry, business, and you as a person.
While the majority of our corporate headshots are photographed against a bright white background we also offer a large variety of colored backgrounds to suit your corporate image as needed.

Social Media Headshots
Social Media is woven into the fabric of society and is here to stay. It has become critical to have an online presence that effectively reflects your personality. First impressions are no longer in person, they happen online. Linked In, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and others are ineffective without an eye catching profile picture, the Social Media Headshot. Dating sites raise the bar even higher as the first impression is generally physical attraction. In all cases, a professionally photographed headshot will grab the attention of your viewer better than the out of date selfie.
Our strategy to producing a good social media headshot is to make the session fun, spending time finding just the right look, and making sure you leave with your best shot ever. Learn more about what to expect at your social media portrait session by clicking the link below, or book online now.
No other industry requires the ultimate headshot more than modeling and acting. You have about three seconds to impress your audience. Agents, casting directors, producers, marketing executives all see hundreds of talent headshots a week. You don’t get a second chance, so an eye catching Model Actor Headshot is vital.
The talent industry has a very different look when it comes to a headshot. Bright white backgrounds are a must, the shot is tight to reveal the face and retouching is required to be natural. Our lighting technique is especially excellent for the model/actor headshot. Learn more about what to expect at your model/actor headshot session by clicking the link below, or book online now.

Choose the popular Power 30-minute session for a quick, straight forward headshot session. No corners cut here. You still receive unrivaled imagery, just in a short time for the busy client.

In addition to these published headshot sessions I am available to custom tailor a headshot package for you depending on the end use, such as magazine, web, comp card, print media, etc.
Plus, for small businesses up to large corporations special packages tailored to shoot several of your team at once or over time.
Planning For Your Headshot Session
Choose your clothing wisely. Select colors that complement your eye color and skin tone. Muted colors work well, as do bright colors but stay away from busy prints or distracting patterns. Colored shirts work well for men and women. Depending on the message you want your headshot to convey you could opt for a t-shirt or v-neck. I suggest avoiding sleeveless shirts if you have concerns about your shoulders or upper arms, otherwise tanks and straps can work very well. Layers work really well so experiment with shirts and sweaters, or tanks and shirts. We are shooting from waist up so feel free to wear comfortable pants or skirt as they won’t be in the shot. Shoes should be comfortable and complimentary to good posture. I will be shifting your weight from one foot to the other and back so this is not the time to wear the brand new pumps. Accessories are fine but beware that the necklace and earrings don’t create a distraction.
If your headshot will be used in a corporate setting it is a good idea to meet with your team leader for suggestions as to wardrobe. Corporate colors or other branding elements may be important to your company. Otherwise, consider your personal brand and the message you want to convey to your audience.
Both the Power 30 and Corporate Headshot allow only one outfit. You should arrive ready to go in whatever clothing you have decided portrays you at your best. We have a nice dressing room if you do need to change into your shoot outfit. If you have booked a Corporate Headshot there may be time for one wardrobe change so feel free to bring a second look just in case.
For the Pro Headshot session I allow a minimum of four looks. Please bring as many as 8 to 10 outfits. While we discuss the session progress I will assist you in selecting what experience tells me will work best for you. People always ask me what colors are best and I really don’t have an answer for that. It’s better for me to get a visual of something, so I suggest bringing a wide variety of colors. Don’t be seasonal; everything from t-shirts, tank tops to sweaters and light jackets can work. I love textures and layers, but would generally stay away from crazy patterns.
If it’s not in the studio we can’t shoot it, so if you find yourself questioning whether or not something will work just bring it along. I also suggest having some fun with this, if you feel your wardrobe is missing something then go shopping and we’ll keep the tags on it and you can return the items you don’t want to keep after the shoot. I have a steamer, so don’t worry about wrinkles, we’ll be able to easily sort them out! If you don’t absolutely love the way you look in a certain outfit please don’t bring it. If you are uncomfortable in your clothing it will show in camera.
