When it comes to headshots, there are two main types to consider: environmental headshots and traditional headshots. While both types of headshots serve the same purpose of showcasing your professional image, the way they are shot and the information they convey are quite different.
Traditional headshots are typically shot in a studio setting and focus solely on the subject's face and upper body. They are typically shot with a plain background and are meant to convey a sense of professionalism and formality. These type of headshots are perfect for business cards, resumes, social media profiles, and professional websites.
On the other hand, environmental headshots are typically shot in a location that is meaningful to the subject or relevant to their profession. These headshots include the subject in their environment, whether it be at their office, in a park, or on a city street. These type of headshots are meant to convey a sense of personality, context and provide a glimpse of the subject's work environment. These headshots are perfect for websites, social media, and marketing materials.
In summary, traditional headshots are perfect for professional, formal settings and environmental headshots are perfect for showcasing personality, context and work environment. Choose the type of headshot that fits your purpose and showcase your professional image in the best way possible.

When it comes to posing for a photo session, it's easy to feel a little bit nervous or self-conscious. But with a few simple tips and tricks, you can learn to pose like a pro and create stunning images that you'll love. Please know... you are not alone. No one really loves to do pictures... everyone gets anxious and self conscious about it. But going in prepped will help with all of that.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when posing for a photo session is to relax and be yourself. The more natural and comfortable you feel, the better your photos will turn out. Try to forget about the camera and focus on being in the moment.
Another important thing to keep in mind is to vary your poses and try different angles. This can help you create a more dynamic and interesting set of images. For example, you can try standing up straight and looking directly at the camera, or you can lean in or look away for a more candid and relaxed shot.
Also, pay attention to your body positioning. For example, you can use your arms and hands to create different lines and shapes, and you can use your head and eyes to create movement and emotion. Remember the body part closest to the camera will appear the largest.
Lastly, don't be afraid to experiment and try new things. The more you practice, the more comfortable you'll become in front of the camera, and the better your photos will turn out. So take a deep breath, relax and have fun! In short, be yourself, vary your poses, pay attention to your body positioning and have fun.
With these tips, you'll be able to create stunning images that capture your personality and style.
