We just completed this portrait for a marketing communications consultant. she will use this series online for her website, blog, and social media. We also filmed her video profiles. She had this to say after reviewing the final results:
“I am delighted with the photos and video work you have done with me. I hate having my picture taken, but you made me feel so comfortable that I never felt self-conscious at all! Thank you for helping me present my best self to the world “
Your photo shoot can go smooth as silk and be a pleasure rather than a chore, experience and good planning will ease the way. We bring both to your project, here are some tips.
Select the right professional from the start. Hiring a professional photographer is like choosing a doctor, you want experience and to know that you can trust their experience. Here’s an example, from a recent web project.
Know what you want. Do you need a corporate portrait for a website, an annual report, or a headshot for social media? Twitter and Facebook can require a different approach than corporate use, we can achieve it at the same shoot, but need to know what your priorities are.
Your styling sets the tone of the portrait. Do you know your best colors? Do you know the background colors of the website you’ll appear on? Please fill us in on these details, your end result will be a greater success.
Give good directions and prep the space. Yes, google maps or a GPS works usually works great, but is your office or business hard to find, details can save time. Do you have a loading area, or a convenient parking space? Please let us know.
Communication is essential to a smooth, successful result, please fill us in on any concerns or requests in advance if you can, this will help us prepare and make for an experience that seems effortless to you, ands that’s the plan.
I feel it’s important to give back and to use media in a positive way. A good example is this project, for the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation.

Here is one of our portraits on the website of Suze Orman, well known financial advisor and author.
From the site Beauty
Beauty is what you create when you incorporate the other seven qualities into your life, Suze explains. When you take the steps to have harmony, balance, courage, generosity, happiness, wisdom, cleanliness and beauty in your life, you will exude confidence in who you are. “There is nothing more beautiful than a confident woman,” she says.
