The Importance of Professional Head Shots
A professionally taken head shot, is important because it shows people that you are serious about your first impression. In a social media dominated world, most people “meet” us for the first time by our head shot. When you have a professional head shot it shows that you care about the way that you appear to others. You take yourself seriously. It shows that you are worth the investment of a great image of yourself. The bottom line is it creates a great first impression.
If your head shot is not a professional head shot, it doesn’t inspire confidence and that you don’t take your image seriously.
Most professionals are now on Linked In. They had a lot to say about the importance of a professional head shot.
If you are in a professional line of business, you need a professional head shot.
How to Prepare for Your Professional Headshots Session
Once you have booked your head shot photography session with our studio, it’s time to start planning. Your outfits are a key part of your finished headshot images. Professional head shots are just that…head shots. They generally are half body or head and shoulder photos. This means that there needs to be interest to draw the viewer in in a tightly photographed image. We recommend that you choose a few different combinations of colors. This will give you options when choosing your final images. Also it is important to think about accessories. In a tightly shot photograph accessories add interest to a professional headshot. It’s as simple as adding a necklace, earrings, scarf or pin. It can change an image from boring to interesting.
What to Expect at Your Professional Head Shot Appointment
We know that the perfect headshot is important to our clients. For that reason we offer, not only a great experience, but a few other perks. We offer hair and make up services through the best make up and hair artists in Virginia.

Our professional hair and make up artists will meet you at your appointment at our studio. No more having to make multiple appointments at various locations. We are a one stop shop.
Our professional photographers will tether their cameras to our computers so that you can view your images during your photo session. This ensures that we are getting the “look” that you are trying to achieve. This creates excitement and relief for our clients.

Getting Ready for Your Head Shot Session
Before heading in to the studio think about all of the things that make up your personal brand and what you want others to take away from a glance at your profile page. Jot down some key words and phrases and bring them to your shoot. Think about what exemplifies your personal brand to you. Are you a chef? An educator? A writer? Are there props that could help tell your story? Bring them along!
We can take a couple different shots—in different outfits—so you’ll have a series to choose from. You may want to tailor your profile picture based on the social media platform you’re using. Remember to have fun! A relaxed, comfortable subject naturally exudes confidence.
What to Wear to Your Head Shot Session
It’s important that your look matches the image you’re trying to convey. For your profession head shots, what you wear on a daily basis is a great place to start. Solid colors are always a good choice, as are tops with strong collars and necklines. Even though you’ll only be shot from the shoulders up, it’s important you’re pulled together from head to toe—you may want a shot or two that are pulled back a bit. Aim for clothes that complement your skin and eye tones.
What to Wear:
• Wear clothes that are comfortable and that make you look great
• Make sure your jacket and shirt fit you well. A poor fitting jacket or shirt will be obvious in the photos (especially around the neck)
• Clothes should be neatly pressed and should look new or like new
• Avoid busy patterns and large lines/stripes
What to Bring:
• Sample professional head shots to help communicate the look you want
Environmental Business Portraits
If you are looking for environmental portraits, we can take care of that for you.

We can shoot your corporate portraits or professional head shots with a green screen background and replace the background with anything you’d like. We do this on a per image charge basis. Our green screen photography techniques are professional, and convincing. While it’s always best to shoot in the real setting, this is the next best option, and many times, much more practical in an office setting.
Professional Headshots and Your Business
Dubbed “the new handshake,” professional head shots are now the first introduction to you, your business and your personal brand—shouldn’t that intro be the best it can be? With 93% of HR professionals and recruiters tapping into LinkedIn to find quality candidates—plus 2 in 3 on Facebook and more than half utilizing Twitter—your professional head shots has countless applications in your professional life. Should your profile pic be the family vacation, the fun night out or—worse—the logo or abstract shot? Or should it be a powerful, compelling and confidence-building headshot that makes prospective clients, employers and partners want to click “Connect?”

Head Shot Photographer
We love being a professional head shot photographer. It brings a lot of different people into our photography world. We may photograph a CEO in one appointment, a model in our next appointment and an actor in the next photography appointment. It really keeps us on our toes.
As you can imagine from these photos, Kayla is not the CEO of a company. Though she is confident and poised and may pass as a CEO, she is an aspiring actor and is involved in musical theater. At such a young age she has so much talent.
When she arrived at her photography session for her head shots, we could tell immediately that she would be a delight to photograph. As you can see, the camera loves her and she loves the camera.
Even as a young teen it was important to hire a professional make up artist to give Kayla’s images the extra edge. We didn’t attempt to try to make her look older by adding make up, just polish her up and give her that flawless finish that everyone desires.
Kayla’s agency is based in LA. She is with IMTA. IMTA is an international talent and modeling agency. When we work with an agency creating a professional portfolio, we always get specifications from the agency first. Every agency has different outlines based on their needs.

Creating a Modeling Portfolio
When we have models or aspiring models that book a portfolio session with us, it is our job to create gorgeous images. Gorgeous images will help our clients book modeling jobs. Whether the model is just updating their portfolio or creating a new portfolio, we create a lot of images to choose from. When photographing a modeling portfolio it is important for us to photograph head shots, half body, three quarter body and full body shots. For most of our models, they are selling their entire body from head to toe. That makes it important to show the pose variations in the photographs.
We use state of the art photography equipment and photography lighting, which creates stunning portraits.
For Felicia’s modeling portfolio we decided to photograph her on a white sweep. When we photograph on a white sweep there are no distracting, or competing, elements or colors in the background. This will draw the eye to the subject. For a modeling portfolio, that is where the eye should be.
Felicia brought a few different outfits. This is always good for a modeling portfolio. You want a variety of clothing and color. That will not only give you many options, but also many different looks to choose from. When forming a modeling portfolio you want a variety of images that highlight different looks and assets. This way the client will be more diversely marketable to many different modeling campaigns.
Felicia is currently with Wright Models and Actors.

Updated Corporate Headshots
In these days and times, a lot of our clients find us on the internet. Once they find our website, they will often look at the “about me” area. If they are searching law firms, doctors offices, or financial advisers, there are generally multiple employees that work for that particular business. When they are searching they will click to try to make a connection to the owner or the employee. It is then that it is most important to have an updated headshot on your website. This is the first impression that our clients will receive of us. Old, poorly lit, or badly posed headshots could cost us that future client.
It is important that we all keep our headshots current. We don’t want to shock clients and not look like the photo they saw of us online.
At Hayne Photographers our headshot sessions are effective. We ensure that our clients are pleased before they ever leave their headshot session. At every appointment we tether our camera to our computer. That allows our clients to view their images as we are shooting them. That way we can ensure that we are meeting the vision of each of our clients. We also offer our clients a variety of backgrounds. We advise our clients that bringing a couple of different colors, maybe a change of ties, is a good idea. That way we can try both and see which look our client likes best.
Before our headshot clients leave our photography studio, they choose the images that that love. This method ensures that our clients are pleased and that we captured them as they want to be pursued in their images.
