Headshots with Personality (sm) / Marketing Photos for Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners

It’s not just Family Portrait Season! It’s also Headshots and Marketing Photos for Small Business Owner Season!

We all need headshots at some point, and headshots that are professional (and of course flattering) are crucial! Just as I do for my family portraits, I specialize in creating headshots and marketing photos that convey your unique personality. That’s why I call them Headshots with Personality(SM).  There are four types of headshot services that I offer:

1) Team Headshots where I come to your location, or you come to my studio and I photograph all members of your management or executive team individually and/or as a team. These are for 4 or more people, where you want the images to have a cohesive look to them.

2) Marketing Session for Small Business Owners where I do a variety of images of you in different poses, different expressions, different backgrounds. These are great because just one headshot is never quite enough; it will rarely meet all the needs you have as a business owner. Sometimes you are presenting at a serious conference and you want a conservative, semi-traditional image. Other times, you may be participating in a charity and want a more light-hearted fun headshot. Or you may be trying to reach a new customer group and you want an image that is more edgy and creative. The Headshot Marketing Session gives you several different images to meet these needs, and keep your website/social media/marketing materials fresh and interesting. The photos at the bottom of this post are from a Marketing Session.

3) Model Portfolio Sessions for child, teen and adult models, actors, dancers and performers. These are held @ my Studio and include three outfits, a headshot, 3/4 length and full body in each outfit, and printable files that you can give your agency.

4) Marketing Session + Product/Service Images, which are ideal for small business owners delivering a service in person (like financial service or therapy) or who deliver something tangible (like jewelry, cookies or food.) These include the marketing session (#2 above) as well as photos of you delivering your service or photos of your actual product. The Marketing + Product/Service Session creates a full suite of images for you to use for all your marketing needs.

I recently did a Marketing Session (type #2 above) for a local small business owner, Juliana Vergaray.  Juliana is a therapist specializing in helping children with trauma. She wanted some photos that reflected her yoga/breathing/meditation part of her practice, and some that reflected the “meeting with you in my office” part, and also some edgy, outdoor images for when she is working with teens (we shot those on the rooftop of my studio.)  She wanted her images to have a variety of feelings (quite, meditative, inquisitive, fun, happy, etc.) – but always warm and caring.

I am in LOVE with how her images turned out (and so is she!)  Check out her amazing images below, and then read her interview tomorrow.

Behind the Scenes at a Denver Photoshoot for Child Models

Happy Tuesday! I had an exciting weekend with several photo shoots – corporate headshots for a local Cherry Creek Bank, a slew of models, and a family session – 15 people in all! While I don’t have images (sneek peaks) ready for those yet, I do want to share  another  behind the scenes (“bts”) image from a recent Denver Photoshoot for Child Models  (click here to see my last “bts” image, of a sweet little baby out in a nature setting).

You’ll see from the “bts” image above that we are actually in an urban setting, but using the foliage and a DOF (depth of field) setting that blurs the background, we put all the focus on her lovely face.

This gal is a local Denver child model, and this was her first photo shoot (as a model). She was such a natural! And her mom was super nice, too.

Check out that headband! Looks like something you can find on etsy.com, doesn’t it?

Denver Children’s Photography – What a Difference A Year Makes

Oh what a difference a year makes! The photos of this adorable toddler girl below were taken 1 year apart – the first one by her mother and the second one by me. (I was so excited when her mother found this one from a year earlier, with a similar pose.)

Look how much this sweet little girl has grown in a year! They grow up so so very fast.

I recommend *At Least* half-yearly portraits until your child is two, and then annual until five years old. They will change so much every few months and high quality custom portraits are one of the very best ways to celebrate your child’s unique personality! One of the things that girl’s mother and aunt said again and again (during our viewing session of their images), “I love these! You absolutely captured her personality!

This little gal is cute cute cute! Her (super fun) mamma wanted to do a combo modeling portfolio headshots + regular toddler portrait session.

And, little Miss P was a typical toddler, and would not sit still for portraits. She loved jumping on the bed in my “Jump Room” @ my N. Denver Studio, and she loved collecting rocks on the roof (yes! We even do roof sessions sometimes – very cool!)  And any time I sat on the ground (which I do often when photographing children), she walked right over to me and sat in my lap! Love her!
