Studio Headshots

The Studio Headshot features simple backgrounds, lighting techniques, and expression. As a result, the viewer has a genuine portrayal of who you are. There are many things to consider when preparing for your Studio Headshots. It is best if you first determine what you are trying to accomplish with your headshot image. Are you a Real Estate Agent attempting to portray an inviting and trustworthy expression? Or are you a Surgeon trying to show your expertise and focus? Are you a Preschool teacher trying to show your kind heart and comforting, gentle, and dependable nature? Your overall goal is the first thing we ask when booking your headshot session. When choosing a background, lighting set up, and expression, we always keep your overall goal in mind.

We offer a variety of backgrounds for your professional studio headshots. Some background options include black, various shades of grey, shades of white, and shades of blue. Choosing a background color is very important for evoking a certain feel or sensibility in your headshot image. A bright white background allows the subject to pop! A soft white background with a warm tone evokes a gentle feeling.

In contrast, a black background is serious. We can also meet your company guidelines by replacing or digitally modifying your headshot’s background using Photoshop. When looking at a company “Meet the Team” page, it is essential to have consistent backgrounds to show unity.

We always use different lighting techniques and top-of-the-line professional equipment. We use soft, flattering lighting for most headshot sessions. In some cases, we use more dramatic lighting to portray different looks and evoke other emotions.

The last factor in your studio headshot is your expression. It is so crucial with a studio headshot because, with a solid colored background, your expression plays a big part in the overall feel of your image. In most cases, people try to achieve a warm and approachable smile. However, in some cases, other expressions are necessary. A stern and closed mouth smile may work best to present yourself as a serious business professional or lawyer. We will work with you to achieve whatever expression you are trying to portray! We have extensive experience making people feel comfortable in front of the camera, which is critical for capturing genuine expressions.

As we capture your images, you can view them in real-time; this allows you to make any adjustments necessary for a perfect final image! Our in-house photoshop professional will then retouch and enhance your favorite images and provide them to you in a timely fashion. We provide all retouched photos to you in web resolution (LinkedIn & other social profiles) and high-resolution files.
