When Heather got in touch about getting some new head shots, she talked about wanting something a little more casual. She isn’t the kind of woman who wears a suit every day, and although she is in a professional field, she wanted to show off how warm and approachable she is.
At her last business portrait, she wore a white blazer and was photographed on a white background. In her case, this totally washed out her skin tone and didn’t really fit her style. This time we chose bright coloured clothing for the white seamless look, and then we switched to a light gray background for something a little less stark. As we went along, I showed her a few images on the back of the camera. She got a good seance of where we were going with the session, and gave me lots of different expressions for variety. Now she has a great collection of images that cover a range of uses from casual to professional.
