Sheree | Raleigh NC Head Shots

When Sheree contacted me for head shots the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.

Head shot sessions are  very popular.

With so much social media interaction, many times your photo IS your first ‘handshake’!

I have updated my session offerings for 2015 to include two head shot session options – mini session or custom session.

Sheree opted for the custom session, so we could have plenty of time for wardrobe changes and the opportunity to capture some beautiful & approachable ‘not so corporate’ headshots!

Hooper Sisters | Raleigh Child Model Photographer

I was SO thrilled when Mom contacted me to tell me it’s time to update her girls modeling portfolios.

(You may remember our shoot in 2013 – click HERE to view)

I couldn’t wait to get these two beautiful sisters in my studio for a day of girly beauty & FUN!

This past weekend this little charmer won her age group as Miss Liberty Little Miss!

10 Days Flew By! | Raleigh Head Shot Photographer

I haven’t posted here in 10 days.  Not due to lack of anything to post!

Last week was a whirlwind three day in a row head shot shoot for a local vaccine company.

And add on top of that planning a few really great & unique upcoming shoots,  track meets, violin rehearsals & recitals, and trying to keep up with the laundry… well, 10 days have gone by!

.

Thought it would be fun to share a few behind the scenes from this week.

Two locations, same set up.

And for photogs & those intersted,  main light is the umbrella, fill light is the LiteDome soft box on the left.

(Gear used listed at the bottom of this post)

Feel free to check out my Pinterest Board “OCF Set Ups” dedicated to a variety of  lighting set ups – click HERE.

Five people scheduled every 15 minutes.  Yes, that’s three minutes per person!

Beauty at Bloom Spa | Raleigh Head Shot Commercial Photography

I am lucky to say this was my third year photographing the staff at Bloom Skin Spa in Cary!

(Click to see images from FIRST year and SECOND year)

Every year we ‘step it up’ a notch, this year we brought in my favorite Elaine with Elaine Harrison Makeup Artistry for some glam-ing up!

It’s just a great day for everyone, me included 🙂

The staff is always kind, it is evident in their smiles.

Headshots | Raleigh Portrait Photographer

In this digital age ,more often than not your first impression is made online.

Whether it be Linkedin, your business website or even a dating site.

I am available to hire for head shots, in case you were ever wondering!

I thought I would share a sampling of my head shot work with you today.  Some traditional, some not.

.

Here’s a recent head shot session from this month,  taken at the clients home.

(I wish I had taken a drop back image.  Very similar set up I wrote about in THIS natural light tutorial.)

To plan this session we used Pinterest together so that I could visualize the type of image she wanted to capture.

Professional and approachable.

Think we nailed it!

Last year I was hired by Novartis for a two day head shot marathon.  The days flew by, really nice staff there & easy to work with!

I was also hired by Raleigh Brewing for some ‘not so traditional’ head shots (good times!)

And last but certainly not least, a few images from my annual head shot ‘party’ at Bloom Skin Spa!

Every March I have the pleasure of photographing the current staff – we bring in hair & make-up and have a really fun girl morning 🙂

If you are in need of head shots, I’d love to hear from you!

Whether for just you or your business, we’ll create the ideal session together.
