Portrait photography

Headshots, Environmental Photos, and more!

Modern Business portraits

There isn’t a one-size fits all approach when it comes to headshots or business branding photos. Having professional, current, and well planned photos not only make your website look fabulous, but they will give you the edge you need over your competitors. The style of photography you need will depend on your audience and what your marketing goals are. I’m happy to discuss your project with you and help you brainstorm ideas. Having professional photos for social media, Linked In, and web use is more important than ever! 

Research shows that people like doing businesses they feel like they know. If you’re a small business owner, do you have a photo of yourself and/or your team on your website? If the answer is no, call me!
