What To Expect For Your Headshot Session

When preparing for your headshot session, here are some things to keep in mind:

Most importantly, this session is all about you and your needs. The session will be as long or as short as you need to be satisfied with your experience. Although, the majority of sessions are under thirty minutes. You have the option to come to our studio or we can meet you on location for an additional fee.

We recommend getting to the studio ten to fifteen minutes early in case you need to change into your outfit, touch up your make-up, fix your hair, or anything else to make yourself camera ready. We have a changing area and mirrors for your convenience. If you bring multiple outfits, you’ll be able to comfortably change here.

We recommend bringing more than one outfit so you have more options to choose from. Neutrals and darker tones look best and most professional. Steer away from distracting patterns, heavy make-up, and gaudy jewelry.

We will start the session by taking some shots in each of your outfits. Then we will upload them to the computer right then and there, and take a look. You’ll be able to hand pick your favorite photo to be retouched. You also have the option of purchasing additional images – sometimes one just isn’t enough!

Our studio has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Your only job is to sit up straight and smile! We’ll take care of the rest.

Plymouth, Michigan Headshot Photographer

Pinehurst Street – Real Estate Photography – Detroit, MI

We photographed an older home in Detroit that’s on the market. It was built in the 1930’s and is 1,450 square feet. The single family home has a detached one car garage and a partial basement. The exterior of the home is beautiful with high pointed features and warm brick. The interior of the home has a more modern feel and everything is painted a calming light gray. Let’s take a look inside!

We love the features of the fireplace.

The very modern kitchen with white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and contrasting black granite counter tops.

Integrity Naturals came out with some new products and labels for their revamped company a few months back, but there are still some stragglers that need to be captured by the camera!

Let’s take a look at these totally natural and 100% good-for-you products!

Arco – Commercial Photography – Romulus, MI

We stopped by this large industrial building in Romulus for a shoot. Arco built this warehouse, and it’s currently used to store food for grocery stores. It was quite chilly in there! We were going to shoot aerial shots of the building, as well, but because of its proximity to the airport, we weren’t able to fly our drone to take photos legally. If you’re ever interested in aerial photography know that FAA regulations may prohibit it. Some areas are not safe spaces for drones to fly. Now, let’s check out this warehouse!

This warehouse is massive!

Redberry Court – Real Estate Photography – Whitmore Lake, MI

We stopped by a beautiful walk-out ranch in Whitmore Lake, MI that was For Sale By Owner (FSBO). This brick home has three bedrooms, three baths and sits on just over 11 wooded acres in addition to being 4,700 square feet. The main floor of the home has an open concept feel with an encompassing kitchen, living, dining, and family rooms. There are two fireplaces, a spacious finished basement, a 4.5 car garage, and a jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. From the main floor, you have access to the deck that overlooks the wooded property, and from the basement, you can walk-out onto a Trex patio. There is also a fire pit in the backyard, which can be used any time of year in Michigan! If you’re selling your house and want professional photography done, don’t be hesitant to reach out!

From this angle, you can see the stairwell leading to the basement.

From here you can see the connection of the foyer, kitchen, and living room.

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and a 6 x 9 foot island!

Another look at the open floor plan. Tons of natural lighting, and check out the fireplace!

As you can see, there are hundreds of different ways you could set up furniture in this floor plan!

A peak at the master bedroom- so spacious with a lot of natural light and a sliding door leading to the deck.

The bathroom is inside the master bedroom. Very convenient!

There’s enough space in the basement for a seating area around the fireplace.

There’s also space for games! A round of pool, anyone? The sliding glass doors lead to the walk-out patio.

From this back exterior shot, it makes it easier to imagine the deck and walk-out patio.

Terminal Coding Competition – Event Photography – Ann Arbor, MI

University of Michigan held a Coding Competition at the Michigan League on their Ann Arbor campus. The competition started at 11 a.m. and students spent the day coding for Terminal, a game where the goal is to beat the “boss” by writing algorithms that would automate their gameplay. The students were broken into teams of three and together they worked to defeat the boss in Terminal and to win a cash prize plus exclusive job opportunities. This event was hosted by Society of Women Engineers and Correlation One, and sponsored by Citadel Securities, who had recruiters present to talk with students about their interest in coding. It was an all day event with lunch included. At the end of the day, only two teams could win with their boss-beating algorithms. It was a super cool event to witness with so many intelligent and motivated young adults. Check it out!

When students checked in, they received free “swag,” like these Terminal t-shirts.

Integrity Naturals Display – Product Photography – Plymouth, MI

We worked with Integrity Naturals to photograph a display shelf of their line of skincare products. Integrity Naturals offers online ordering to anyone, but they also sell directly to other businesses. Portraying what a display shelf would look like is a fantastic idea to show current and prospective business customers what your products would look like on display in their own store. This was actually shot in the owner’s living room because of the challenge of transporting a glass shelf. So, the shot came with some challenges, but we think it turned out pretty well!

Spark Headphones – Glow vs. Non-Glow – Product Photography

We worked with Spark Headphones to photograph their Smart Glow Headphones in non-glow mode. Although the selling feature of this product is the glowing, it’s important to have photos of the product when it’s not on so customers know what it looks like. If you have a product that changes from it’s original form, it’s beneficial to have photos of your product in all of it’s forms. This allows the customer to know what to expect when purchasing the product, and can even help decide whether they order or not.
