In 2018, having a fresh headshot for use on social media has become a must. Whether you’re a recent graduate about to embark on a job hunt, a blogger or social media influencer looking for a polished portrait for your website/blog/Instagram or a long-time professional hoping to try a new and modern approach to headshots, there’s a good reason that everyone needs one.
From here it’s just a question of deciding how to approach the session with me your photographer. This is something I’m happy to go over with you at the time of booking to ensure the location we choose will be reflective of you and your brand. Many clients opt for going somewhere outdoors in Ottawa (downtown, Byward Market, Westboro, a local park etc.) since that gives them lots of neutral backgrounds. This is good if your images are going to be used in a variety of ways. Other times clients have a specific spot in mind that they know will help to give the images a more personal feel. This could be indoors at your favourite cafe, your home or your office. The possibilities are limitless!
The lovely Amy had some specific ideas of the look she wanted and the type of location she wanted. She chose the Ottawa location of Mamie Clafoutis in Westboro and I must say, that was such a fantastic idea! The space is beautifully decorated, nicely lit and the fresh baked artisanal goodies were drool-worthy! The perfect backdrop for a modern, professional yet relaxed portrait session.
