We are well known for our natural light studio but also have strobe lights for those rainy days. You will have many areas to choose from to create your own look. Most studios simply have a studio.

You are not limited to one place which is why so many of our clients are so excited to have their professional headshot done on location.
EIGHT REASONS WHY YOU NEED AN UPDATED HEADSHOT
1. FIRST IMPRESSION
It is the first impression your potential client will get. You must look the part; you must look professional. That image may be a deal breaker that could either cost you or win you the job/the client/the part…
2. SEPARATE YOURSELF FROM YOUR COMPETITION
A clean, contemporary portrait will set yourself from your competition. Your potential client/employer will more likely want to know more about you when they see a professional, up-to-date headshot of yourself.
3. GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY
You don’t like being photographed. You don’t like your image. Let the professional do the job of creating an image that you will like. That’s what you hire a professional for; every professional photographer should guarantee that you will love the results. If not, then you need to find a good professional photographer who will listen to you and create the image that you want.
4. YOU ARE SINGLE
Dating sites are the “go to” place to find a potential partner. Your professional headshot will put you to the “top of the list”!! Anyone who goes through the process of hiring and paying a professional photographer for a professional portrait for a dating site says that they are serious about finding a potential partner. That alone goes a long way.
5. SOCIAL MEDIA
Have you looked lately at some of the images that you see on social media? If not, take a look. Get yourself noticed by having a professiol portrait done of yourself to represent who you are, and fulfill #1 on this list..create a good first impression. Do you want to be photographed in a casual setting? In a studio? Are you an actor and want to portray that? Are you a customer service rep? A real estate agent? Convey to your photographer the look you are going after; check out images that appeal to you and share them. The more you communicate with your photographer on the look you are going after, the more likely you will get an image that will separate you from your competition.
6. UPDATE YOUR IMAGE
Let’s face it; time doesn’t stop. You are getting older; therefore, make sure that your image reflects who you are. If you are still posting that image done 10 years ago, you know it’s time to update your image. Getting older simply means your facial features have changed. A professional photographer should bring out your best qualities and create a beautiful image of you that you that reflects who you are. Images should be updated at least once a year. This goes hand-in-hand with #3..get out of your own way.
7. LOOK GOOD, FEEL GOOD
A great head shot will make you feel good about yourself. It boosts your self-confidence which will affect how you feel and look on a daily basis. Don’t believe me? Look at your current headshot? Love it? ate it? You decide.
8. FOR OTHER USES
Let’s say a company wants to feature you on their blog and ask for a professional portrait of you. Do you have one ready to give them? If not, you will be scrambling at the last minute to find a professional photographer who may or may not deliver. Don’t be that one person who leaves it up to chance; you many never know when opportunity comes knocking on your door! Make it a priority each year to have your professional portrait updated.
