HEADSHOTS PERSONALIZED TO YOUR VISION
Timeless, Elegant, Story-Telling

Headshots are there to identify you, to serve as your introduction, to connect with people and convey to them who you are. In our digital, or printed world, in most cases your headshots, or environmental portraits, is your first impression and I am dedicated to make this first impression count.


Beyond headshots, I specialize in Environmental Portraits. They tell a story about you and your company, what you represent, and you want to personalize all of this in the picture. They are usually shot at your office, workplace or environment that is familiar to you.

I also provide San Diego Event Photography coverage custom tailored to your needs, and will document your event in the style that tells your story exactly the way you want it.

 

I am easy going, so we can have fun, you can relax and be yourself.

HEADSHOTS SESSION INFORMATION

San Diego Headshots | Environmental Portraits | Professional Photographer

Why professional headshots?

In this competitive world you want the best portrait of you that sets you apart.

Headshots are used by professionals, regardless of industry, for their company websites, for their company or conference identifications, for any advertising and marketing materials, including business cards and social media accounts (LinkedIn, Facebook, Skype for Business).

Many bankers, financial firms, attorneys, CPAs, real estate agents, corporate and business professionals, executives, startups, actors, personalities, writers and many other small business owners update their headshots regularly.

Vision, Goals & Branding

I want to hear your ideas and desires so I can better tailor your session and I can create it through my vision.  

Schedule a free session consultation prior to booking the session and answer a short session questionnaire I will send you.

Once I have an idea of what you want to do, I can suggest outfits and locations that would be best to achieve your vision. 

Take your time to write your ideas for the photoshoot down. Search the internet for headshots photography or environmental portraits and pin images you like to pinterest.com, or save and email them to me.  We will go over them to create the vision for your session. 

Styling for headshot is important.

We will discuss the look and feel that you want to best represent you and we will decide on locations. 

Simply start with one piece and build the wardrobe around it and make sure the outfits are comfortable to wear. 

For headshot you want to show variety, so bring various collars or necklines. 

Headshots are about your face and clothing should enhance it.

  1. Solid colors are preferred
  2. Chose nice textures and quality weaves.

To assure clothing doesn't take anything away from your portrait:

  1. Clothing shouldn't be too bright (bright red is a no).
  2. Avoid busy prints or patterns.
  3. Limit jewelry to few pieces.
  4. Use hair accessories sparingly.

Simply start with one piece and build the wardrobe around it and make sure the outfits are comfortable to wear. 

However, whatever you bring make sure it is clean and ironed.  If your clothes are wrinkled and stained this will show up in the photos. Make sure you remove everything from your pockets during the photoshoot such as phone, keys, wallet, because they will show up on the photos.

I can help with styling:

Contact me if you are not sure what to wear. I will consult with you about the look and feel you want for your shoot.

Every client is different and this is what makes each photo shoot unique. 

Few, not so obvious, and some basic reminders:

  1. Styling: Allow enough time to plan the outfits, minimum a week before.
  2. Hydrate: Drink plenty of water prior to the session, to help your skin to glow. 
  3. Haircut: If you are considering haircut before the session, do it at least a week before.
  4. Clothing: Choose clothes that fit and compliment you, if you are unsure, consider a stylist.
  5. Makeup: Makeup you wear daily is different than makeup for photography designed to enhance your look in a camera. It's not a must, but you should consider it.
  6. Sun: It is a headshot, you don't want to get sunburned a day before the session.
  7. Glasses: Bring multiple pairs to choose the one with least reflections.
  8. Practice: Give it a shot a night before and practice for the image you want in a mirror. Believe me, it does help.
  9. Blemishes: Don't worry about them, we can retouch them with Photoshop.
  10. Directions: Check the directions to the location prior to the session and make sure you know how to get there.

What is the photo session length?

I understand that time is very valuable so I try to make the headshot session quick and to the point.  I will set up before the shoot so I am ready to do the photo shoot in a timely manner.  

Length of the headshots session really depends on number of factors:

  1. the number of looks / outfit changes you are going to choose
  2. number of locations
  3. if you choose hair/makeup professional

When to Schedule:

The headshot photo shoot can be scheduled during business hours.  

What is the best location?

This is a personal decision each client, the goal of the location is to fit the idea or vision you have in mind. 

I will come early and do a location scout of the office or areas very close to the office to suggest the most interesting backdrop.  

I do have a portable studio with lights and a backdrop that I can set up for photos, but will need about 10 x 20 ft space.  

After the session:

Within a week of the photo session, you will be sent a link for a password protected online gallery, so you can choose the best images, which I will then edit and release to you.

You can download all High Resolution images from the headshot session. In addition you can choose to download Web-Size (1024px) ideal for sharing on social media.

From the online gallery you can share these photos with your friends and family, or buy prints, canvas, mounted prints, metal prints of images, with various sizes.

Images are developed by specialized lab, color corrected for optimal printing to deliver exceptional quality products.

Thank you!

Thank you for entrusting me to take your headshots.
