Our approach as headshot specialistS
Do you enjoy having your picture taken? For many people (us included), the honest answer to this question is - no, not really. Let's face it, stepping in front of a professional camera with bright lights pointed at your face can be super uncomfortable and intimidating. Even downright terrifying. So why is this? Here's the thing - being in front of a photographer's camera can make you feel very vulnerable. It has a way of shining a spotlight (literally) on all of our insecurities, and we immediately start judging ourselves. Even if you are a relatively confident person with decent self-esteem, seeing that big scary camera pointed in your direction can make all sorts of negative self-doubt start rising to the surface. On top of that, you are also basically required to relinquish most of your control over an already awkward situation, placing all of your trust in that person standing behind the camera who you met like 5 seconds ago. Yikes! When you spell it all out, it's no wonder so many of us avoid the camera. Right??
So the next question becomes - how do you deal all of that and still manage to end up with a fantastic headshot that you will feel good about showing to the world? Working with us, the answer to that question is simple. None of it is actually your job! Many photographers make it their client's responsibility to know what to do in front of their camera. That would be like hiring a CPA who makes you prepare your own tax return. Totally illogical and the exact opposite of how we work. Taking fabulous headshots is not what you do every day. It's what WE do every day. With us, all you basically have to do is show up, and we will handle the rest!
Let's talk about photogenicity for a second. We hear the statement "I'm not photogenic" just about every day, and we can honestly say that We've never worked with anyone that we couldn't take a great photo of. The truth is you don't have to be an actor or a supermodel to look awesome in your headshots. All you need is a skilled headshot specialist who knows how to illuminate your strengths (and diminish your perceived weaknesses) while helping you to feel as comfortable as possible in a situation that you may feel the least comfortable with. That is what we do and why a headshot session with us is unlike any experience you’ve ever had in front of a camera before. We guarantee that you will be pleasantly surprised by how fun and uplifting this process can actually be.
What to expect during your session
First things first - when you arrive at my gorgeous studio you can expect us to greet you with a warm welcome and a big smile. We'll get your clothes hung up and start to get acquainted while we make you a cup of coffee.
We'll look through your wardrobe and start pulling favorites while we talk about your work, your life, your family so we can get to know you, your personal brand and how you want to look in your headshots.
If you've opted for makeup services with your session, we'll get you right into the chair at this point so the beautification can commence!
After everything is looking camera-ready face wise, We'll have you try on a few different clothing options so we can see how things fit and what colors compliment your features. And we will steam anything that needs a little help in the wrinkle department.
Once we have wardrobe all figured out, then it's time to step in front of our lights which are rather bright at first, so we like to give everyone a few minutes to let their eyes adjust. We will snap a few test shots to make sure everything is looking just right, and we will teach you a few simple techniques that we will be using to get you looking your very best in your images.
Then once your eyes have adjusted and you are feeling ready to go, we'll start shooting. We'll be saying lots of funny things to you to get you laughing and having fun as well as providing expert coaching, pro tips, creative insights and direct direction every step of the way. Remember, getting you to look awesome in your headshots is 100% our job not yours. :)
All of the advanced coaching and direction we give is designed to capture and convey your personality authentically and reactively so that you look confident, professional, friendly and approachable in your headshots.
As your session moves along, we'll stop a few times to review images on the computer to make sure you like what you are seeing and address any areas of opportunity that we have for improvement.
This is meant to be a truly collaborative effort, so we will want you to be very honest with us about what you love and anything you don't. Our #1 priority is that we get results that you super happy with. We never take offense, and it's easy to shift gears on the fly if we realize something isn't working so there is no need to hold anything back.
We will continue to review images in between sets and wardrobe changes, deleting the bad ones and only keeping the good ones. Expressions tend to get better and better as the session progresses so towards the end is where we can expect to see the most fantastic looks coming through. If we haven't quite gotten there yet, that means we aren't finished shooting. We never enforce a strict time limit on the length of a session. We shoot until we have the shots we are after and we end the session only when we both feel fantastic about what we have accomplished.
