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.

Integrity Naturals – Product Photography – Plymouth, MI

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! Product photography is always essential for any business that wants a successful online presence, but even more so when you undergo a company makeover. New look, new products, new photos. Let’s take a look at these totally natural and 100% good-for-you products!

The cucumber and chamomile trio of facial products for combination skin.

Rosehip and hibiscus facial products for normal to dry skin.

Hemp and aloe vera facial trio for sensitive skin.

Mineral Salt Soak and Aloe Vera hand and body lotion.

Peaceful Lavender hand and body lotion with essential oils. Also comes in happy orange, refreshing peppermint, and natural aloe vera.

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.

Eileen Harryvan Headshot Photography – Plymouth, Michigan Studio

Recently, Eileen Harryvan hopped into the studio for a headshot photography shoot with us! Eileen works for Active Regeneration, as an independent BEMER distributor. Eileen came to the shoot prepared with different outfits to try out. This is always a good idea, as it gives you more looks to choose from. As you can see below, she simply threw on a blazer and it changed her look dramatically, giving her strong, respectable, and professional presence. The outfit really does matter in your headshot!

Wellness Center of Plymouth Business Videos – Plymouth, Michigan

We worked with Dr. Sisk of the Wellness Center of Plymouth and Pain Solutions of Plymouth to create videos that highlight their use of innovative technology and human touch to treat their patients. Each of these videos hones in on a different kind of treatments offered, all of which are non-medicinal. We know it sounds too good to be true, but you will have to find out for yourself! Their services include pulse electromagnetic field therapy, laser therapy, chiropractic care, massage and detoxification, pain relief, nutrition help, and weight loss. Another shock? It’s all pain-free! How can that be? Don’t ask us. Check out the Wellness Center of Plymouth for yourself!

Ken McMullen Business Portrait Shoot – Plymouth, Michigan Studio

Ken McMullen, strategist for Thrivent Financial, recently came in for a business portrait shoot. Thrivent Financial is a fraternal benefit society, which means they are a not-for-profit organization, that has over two million members. Not only does Thrivent Financial offer a variety of financial services and insurances, but they bring together Christians to help strategize financial plans to fit their lives right now and in the future. Thrivent Financial also raises money to help with volunteer work and wonderful causes, one of which is a mission to collect $1 million to help those affected by Hurricane Florence. Ken started working for Thrivent in 2013 to assist with their business development. Earlier in 2018, he became a regional community engagement strategist, and the new position called for a brand new portrait!

As the owner of a company that sells a variety of natural, healthy, and safe products for your skin, it’s important for DeAnna to have a headshot that showcases herself (and her skin!) in a way that looks natural and glowing. As you can see below, different lighting techniques were used to achieve different looks.
