Three Easy Steps to Incredible Headshots! :: Ottawa Photographer

As an Ottawa Photographer who’s been in business since 2009, I often get clients who come back to me months or years later to let me know how much they still enjoy their photos or how those photos have impacted their lives. This is regularly the case with headshots because very often my clients are having them done for a specific purpose – to land a dream job, to put their face out there after graduating, to attract a particular type of client or simply just to make themselves feel more beautiful or confident. I have to say, it’s so, so gratifying for me to get this sort of follow up. Not only does it reaffirm for me the importance of what I do, but it’s also such a great feeling for my clients to know that they made a wise investment.

The one hesitation I hear from people most often is that they are nervous. I think I can go out on a limb and assume that a good portion of people feel this way to some degree. They are worried it’s some long, intimidating and awkward process. But that could not be further from the truth! Headshot sessions with Danielle Lynn Photography are extraordinarily simple, quick and relaxing. Who knows…you may even have fun! 🙂 Over the years I’ve found that my busy clients appreciate this type of experience so I’ve streamlined my process to offer just that.

Three Easy Steps to Incredible Headshots with yours truly:

Step One: Contact me to book your professional headshots. In our communication we will pinpoint our date, time and location. I also ask clients to fill out a very short (optional) survey that allows me to get to know a little about your personality and what type of work you do/hope to do. This allows me to understand any visions you may have and to tailor the session to your unique needs.

Step Two: Meet for the session! My goal is to spend 30-45 minutes with you, getting a good variety of images. I will direct you in ways to pose that look natural and flattering. During the session you may choose to switch out accessories or even change different components to your outfit to create a different look. Once the session is over we discuss when I will have them ready for you (typically 1-3 business days) and the editing on my end begins!

Step Three: Once your proofs are ready to view they are presented to you in a password protected online gallery. From here you may choose which of the 6 images you’d like and I set them up on a digital download for you. This means you have the photos to use immediately. No fuss, no waiting.

Now that spring is officially in Ottawa, I am really looking forward to working with some of Ottawa’s best business professionals, students, creatives, bloggers and entrepreneurs!

The Lovely Carissa :: Ottawa Headshots

Can you believe this gorgeous weather we’re having in Ottawa?! After a busy winter season, I’ve been so looking forward to finally getting outside and enjoying some warm sunshine with clients. There’s nothing I love more than getting creative and working outdoors in this weather!

If you have not yet taken the opportunity to update your professional headshots, there’s no time like the present! Whether you are an entrepreneur, artist, blogger, student or business professional, a quality set of headshots can be what sets you apart from others in your field. They also help potential clients or employers to connect with the real you. Simply put, headshots are one of the most important investments you can make in your business, blog or brand. Plus, working with me is super fun…so you can’t really go wrong 😉

The lovely Carissa booked her professional headshots with me in order to do just that. She had been a fan of my work for a long time and finally decided to take the plunge and book. I’m so glad she did! I had such a great time working with her and I think her happiness and naturally warm personality came through perfectly in the images.

Little Levi :: Ottawa Newborn Photograper

Oh this little guy! He’s just the sweetest!

Back in February my dear friends Chrissy and Steve welcomed their beautiful baby boy Levi into the world! The original plan was for me to drive to the hospital (about an hour outside of Ottawa) and would photograph the birth. Levi, however, had other plans and his birth happened much quicker than anyone expected. Before I could arrange to get there, it was all over!

The next morning my family and I drove out to meet him and congratulate the new parents. Even though I had missed the birth, I was happy to bring my camera along anyway and capture some moments of the three of them in the hospital. What I love about photos like this is the authenticity. I know a lot of people probably wouldn’t think of the hospital as an ideal place and time to have professional newborn photos taken, but it definitely is! You just need the right photographer to make the ordinary moments look extraordinary 😉

Thanks so much to Steve and Chrissy for having me in to capture some of these first moments with little Levi! I have a funny feeling that this won’t be the last time these three are featured here on the blog! 😉

If you are expecting a baby and are interested in having a set of newborn photos taken in-hospital, let’s get in touch! Newborns grow and change in the blink of an eye. Capturing these sweet first moments as a new family are so important and will be a treasured memory for years to come!
