Small Business Professional Headshots | Nicole Starr

Last summer Nicole (of Nicole Starr Photography) and I collaborated on a business headshot swap where we photographed each other for our websites and social media presence. As fellow photog buddies, we both knew the importance of having a solid photograph of ourselves to put our "best foot forward" in our businesses.  

We began our shoot on location at a grassy field in Gloucester, MA where the light was dreamy and the humidity was soaring.  On the northshore of Massachusetts we have so many beautiful locations, and within minutes we moved onto our next location at Good Harbor Beach.

Nicole planned her outfits to reflect her brand, which is whimsical and bright. I think her blush pink tulle skirt accomplishes just that!  Her photographs reflect the playfulness and beauty of her brand.

How many of you want to see the photographs that Nicole took of me during our headshot swap?? Leave me a note in the comment section below!


Small Business Professional & Social Media Headshots / Shane & Chris

Take a second to look at the picture you are using on your LinkedIn, Facebook, or website profile photo. Is it grainy and dark? Did you take it with a cell phone? Is it *gasp* a selfie??

Your profile picture is often the one thing on which people will base their first impression of you. And I don't think I need to lecture you about first impressions, right?

With Chris' headshots, we chose to meet up at the Boston Public Library.  The courtyard was the perfect place to get some bright, airy shots. Later, we went inside where the stacks of books made the perfect setting to reflect Chris' occupation as an engineer.  

Shane works in the seafood industry, so it was a no-brainer that we needed to head down by the docks.  The harbor was the perfect setting to show Shane's connection to the ocean.

Lyndsay is a real estate agent, so we chose an outdoor space with lots of greenery and masonry in the background.  

With each session, my clients and I brainstorm on the perfect location for you and your professional portraits. During your session, I coach you with posing so you can look your very best in every picture!  After our session, a proofing gallery is uploaded for you to pick your perfect headshot. 

You know that it's well past the time to get this task checked off your to-do list! Let's do this!
