This week we begin our month-long compositional study of portraits. We begin with one of the most classic portraits of all all time- the headshot. A headshot typically comprises the head to shoulder area. Making a good headshot portrait is very important, as many people rely on them for business purposes and as their first visual introduction to the world. To the photographer, the portrait is a challenge and extends far beyond the technicalities as we strive to capture the personality, spirit and essence of the person. You can often see how the subject feels by looking at their eyes. As they say the eyes are the key to the soul. Headshots are also very practical photographs to make, as who doesn't need a good portrait of themselves, whether for a Facebook profile, a framed portrait or a professional application.
I am so excited to be adding Newborn photography to my business. As anyone who knows me knows- I love babies! Ever since I was a little girl, I have always adored babies. So my headshot, is not a traditional one, but one of my first newborns. He is such a sweety. He was a perfect angel and slept through all of the posed shots. This is one of my favorite "headshots" from our session. Newborn sessions are best at 5-10 days, but at least before they are 14 days old. Please contact me if you are interested in newborn, birth or maternity (best at 37 weeks) sessions.
