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

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.

We love being commercial and advertising photographers. It can often be a very creative session if you have cool clients. Meet Wendy. She is the epitome of cool clients. Wendy is starting a new business and hired us as her commercial photographer.
When we are photographing for a commercial client, we want to ensure we have a clear vision of what they are trying to achieve. Through much communication and collaboration we achieved exactly what Wendy was looking for in her new branding and new business.
The product Wendy is selling, is her. Her expertise, her motivation and her mentoring. She wanted to be captured in a beautiful, fun and professional way.
Wendy did some serious planning before her photo shoot. She had been working with other professionals developing a new website and a new brand. Along with her new brand, she would need new photos to embrace that brand. She discussed in length different photos that she would need to fill all the spaces of her new website. She also needed professional commercial photos for things like email blasts, newsletters and social media. Here are a few of the shots that she needed to fill her website with professional photos.
Commercial Website Photos
In preparing for her commercial photo shoot, we knew that we would be capturing some images showing that Wendy loves to talk to you. She came up with the concept of incorporating the envelopes. This would send the message that she loves to get mail and LOVES to respond to her clients. We thought of a few ways to show this concept. With commercial photos this fun, who wouldn’t want to send her a letter?
Commercial Yoga Photography
Wendy is also a certified yoga instructor and will have a section on her website dedicated to yoga. She wanted some different, out of the box, professional yoga pictures.
