Francine | Author Head Shots and Personal Branding

I am really excited to share this blog post with you today!

Late last year Francine came to me via a search on Google.  She was new to the area, and in immediate need for author photos for her soon to be published book, ‘Lightly : How to Live a Simple, Serene, and Stress-free life’.

(Available for pre-sale on Amazon as of this week click HERE! – You may recognize Francine’s profile & book jacket cover after reading this ;))

As fate would have it, I had another client reschedule last minute, and was able to photograph Francine in time for her publisher’s deadline.  Thank you fate!!  Meeting & photographing Francine was truly like a breath of warm fresh air!  We hit it off immediately, she is so kind & personable.  Neither one of us wanted her photo shoot to end, and we ended up talking & laughing for quite a while afterwards.

Francine arrived at the studio and relaxed with pampering & professional hair and make up with Kristi of Wink Hair & Make Up. (Scroll to bottom for behind the scenes!)

With the ultimate goal of minimal, light & bright, we first stepped outside to capture some environmental head shots, and the rest of the day ‘played’ with different outfits & lighting in the studio.  Was a perfect shoot with a beautiful person!

Behind the scenes … we laughed a lot 🙂

Laurie knows the importance of contemporary and fresh photos for her online presence and marketing, and came back to me for the third time to update her portfolio!  Always a highlight and a great day to have her in the studio.

Raleigh Head Shots and Personal Branding | Carole

Meet Carole.  A mother, wife, and founder of My Therapist NC   ,  Carole is also co-presenter with The Art and Science of Love Workshops!

Carole is in the process of updating her websites , and reached out to me for new head shots and personal branding.  After viewing her friend’s new head shots (by me),  Carole realized that it is important to have current head shots and branding to accurately reflect her personality & brand!

Not only did we capture new professional head shots, but we concluded the session with some fun & fancy red dress photos! (be sure to scroll all the way through)

I always encourage my clients to bring ‘that’ dress, or something jaw dropping to wear.  While you have your hair  & make up on point, why not?

Smart, strong, stunning!

 

.

Thank you Carole for an amazing day!

Laura | Raleigh Head Shots & Personal Branding

Laura first contacted me in the Spring, in need of new contemporary head shots & personal branding of her new website.  Then, of course, life happens as a busy entrepreneur.  As well as Laura moved out of state before we could have her session.

We stayed in contact, and late summer figured a date that she would be driving through Raleigh!

Laura wanted a variety of pictures that help present her as a writer, fiction & freelance.  She wanted to look fun, playful and professional where possible, with images to use across all of her social media for now and future.   No problem there!

A wonderful person to photograph, easy to work with & simply radiant through and through!

Monica | Raleigh Personal Branding and Head Shots

Monica contacted me because she recently began a new job, and needed new head shots for her online profiles and social media.

Monica booked in the personal branding mini session, which includes professional hair & make up and the 30 minute guided photo shoot.  The mini portrait session is an abbreviated version of the custom session (reduced shooting time) , but just as much pampering & fun is had!

Photographing Laurie is seriously a job perk!

We met two years ago when she contacted me for head shots & personal branding.  Was happy that Laurie contacted me again to update her portraits!  And this time, we added a beautiful black dress to her portrait wardrobe.  Love!

Laurie is a former Human Resources leader turned influential speaker, writer and entrepreneur.  She is the founder of GlitchPath , an early-stage startup focused on business insights.   AND Laurie is a cat lover like no one I’ve ever met (had a sweatshirt made with her cat on it for the shoot!)

Sydney contacted me because her financial group needed new head shots & personal branding portraits for their new website.

I first met Sydney at my studio for First Friday Raleigh.  We had great conversation that night and I was excited for the chance to work with her & her team!

Not only was their group a blast to work with, I also had the chance to check out the amazing views from their offices at the top of  the brand new Bank of America building at North Hills.  Yeah, stunning!

.

We began the shoot early in the morning – shooting outside & around the building.

A fabulous backdrop for their personality portraits!
