Who Said Corporate Headshots Have to Be Stuffy?

Headshots by Stefanie Blue - TRUE BLUE Portrait DesignCorporate headshots typically elicit thoughts of dry, boring, dull, cookie-cutter headshots.  But that doesn’t need to be the case.  True, if you hire a photographer to come to the office, you’ll likely have an assembly-line style shoot, where each person steps in front of the camera for a moment or two, and that’s the image you get.  No wonder so many corporate headshots make me want to cry.Headshots by Stefanie Blue - TRUE BLUE Portrait DesignTo get images that bring out your personality, it takes more than minute in front of the camera.  You need to be able to relax, and feel at ease.  Being in front of the lens is outside most people’s comfort zone.  You want to work with a photographer who is skilled at making people comfortable.

There’s also the preparation that goes into the photoshoot – wardrobe, makeup, and location.  Each of these elements makes a big impact.  Then there’s posing and lighting, which is up to your photographer.  Having a photographer come to the “office” with cubicles, exit signs, and those awful flourescent lights, does not yield a flattering branded image.

And, if there’s a way to include a fun, or personal, element into your session – even better!

Say adios to ho-hum corporate photos!
