When I first started my photography biz, and even still today, people would ask me if I would be willing to take their professional headshots. I get it, you need a nice photo, with good light that makes you look put-together and that you wouldn’t mind being plastered all over your company website and brochures. That’s often not a photograph you can take with your iPhone, so you reach out to professional photographers you know. Historically, I would decline when asked if I would take a headshot. For one, it’s limiting creatively. Secondly, I prefer to shoot in natural light whenever possible. My photographs are taken outside at beautiful venues, or in the comfort of a clients home. So, headshots have never been a niche that I’ve fallen into. That is, until creative headshot photography became a thing.
Like weddings, photography for small (and big) businesses has modernized over the past few years. Long gone are the days of weird close ups on a dated backdrop made of carpet remnants. Professionals now want their headshots to reflect their actual personality and the actual passion that they’ve poured into building their business. And, for that, I’m totally game!
Creative Headshot Photography
When Valerie contacted me about updating the company photos for her interior design business, Serendipite Designs, there was no way I could say no. This business is all about class, personality and style – so why shouldn’t their headshots be, right?!
Step aside dated carpeted of days past, we held this headshot session at The Mission in San Juan Capistranio which was truly the perfect backdrop. We had fun, I got to learn a little more about what these women do at Serendipite Designs and, of course, we got some amazing photos!
