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!

Ottawa Family Photographer :: A Family of Five!

This lovely Ottawa family has been coming to me for their photos for a few years now and it’s been so much fun to see how they’ve grown and changed in the time I’ve known them. The first session I did with them was when their daughter was just a tot. Since then they’ve added two more children to their brood and have moved to another country! It means so much to me that they would keep coming back to see me when they are home. Aside from being just genuinely nice people, their laid back style means more room for creativity for me so it’s always extra enjoyable!

One challenge after photographing a family so many times is that you start having to think extra hard about new and different location ideas that we haven’t done before! This time around, I figured now that their kids are a little older (and maybe slightly more wild!) something funky and unique like graffiti would add an element of fun to the photos. And boy was I right! I thought it was so funny that the kids immediately began posing in front of the wall as if they knew the drill. Watching them come up with their own poses was pretty hilarious and made for some really adorable moments. I will say – I do think these images captured the chaos and joys of being a young family of five quite well 😉

If you are interested in having your family photographed this Fall, please get in touch! September and October are the perfect months to capture your family if you love the fall colours and the cooler temperatures! I am officially booking fall family photo sessions now!

Professional Headshots Ottawa :: Andria

I’ve had a huge influx of inquiries for professional headshots for the month of July! It seems more and more Ottawa area creatives, students, entrepreneurs and other business professionals are choosing the more relaxed ‘lifestyle’ approach to their portraits. In addition to this making a busier spring/summer/fall season for me (YAY!)…I’m really happy to see this shift from a personal standpoint. As someone who is naturally a bit introverted, I know that when I’m searching for a company to work with or an individual to hire for something, I always love it when I can find some sort of personal connection. A warm, natural smile goes a long way in making me feel comfortable as a client or customer. So when other professionals get the importance of this, I think it can only benefit them in the long run!

The lovely Andria had such a naturally funny quirkiness to her that was impossible not to like! Anyone who knows me knows that I love a good laugh or two when I’m working. It was a pleasure to meet you Andria! I hope these images serve you well, now and in the future!

If you live in the Ottawa area and are interested in booking your own Professional Headshots, I’d love to hear from you! There couldn’t be a more perfect time to make this investment in your business, brand or career!
