Joanna's looking directly at the camera. The light is coming from the right and is soft and flattering. This light is often called painterly because of the soft shadows.

Headshots for women

Different professions require different types of headshots

I photograph everyone from lawyers to designers to musicians to professors, and they all need something a little bit different. Almost everyone wants a photo that makes them seem friendly and approachable.

The more conservative professions prefer suit jackets, simple jewelry, and an in-studio setup.

Solopreneurs and creative people tend toward more casual lifestyle images.

We’ll talk about what kind of image you want to present before your session.
