What To Expect From Your Headshot Session

ONE CHANCE TO MAKE A FIRST IMPRESSION

Your decision to invest in professional headshots is an excellent one. Whether you will be using them for business or personal reasons, your headshot is an important marketing tool and often your first opportunity to make a great impression. Gustavo Fernandez Photography is here to help you make it an outstanding one.

Having your portrait taken is a fun and engaging experience and we will make every effort to help you feel welcomed and at ease.

SCHEDULING YOUR SESSION

Once you schedule your session, we will send you a confirmation email with important details such as what to wear, and how to prepare. Please review this info and reach out if you have any questions. If you would like to add a professional hair and makeup artist, now is the time to let us know.

 

Your company may specify background color or how they want the portraits lit, and we are able to accommodate most requests if we are given the requirements ahead of time.

HEADSHOT DAY

On the day of your session, plan to be on site a few minutes before your scheduled appointment. This allows some time to settle in and prepare for your shoot, so you don’t feel stressed or rushed, neither of which are conducive to portraits that portray you as relaxed, friendly, and approachable.

 

When you arrive we will choose the best outfits from what you brought, and decide on the backdrops that will work with your brand as well as what looks good with your hair and skin tone. You’ll have time to do any necessary hair or makeup touch ups, or you will sit down with our professional hair and makeup artist if you added that option. We highly recommend hiring a professional for these details as you will most likely be using these photos for multiple purposes for the next year or so.

GETTING COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA

During your session, we will explore different poses and expressions to create a photo that reveals your best you. Gustavo will guide and coach you throughout your session and help you feel comfortable in front of the camera. It is not uncommon for adults to begin saying they “hate to have their photo taken” and half an hour later they have renewed confidence and great photos, exclaiming “that was super easy!”

IMAGE REVIEW AND SELECTION

After we finish the photography part of the session, we will sit down together to review the images and select your favorites. We will note any cropping or retouching requests and within 3-5 business days you will have your new headshots in your inbox.

Together we will create photos that present you as a confident professional who is a pleasure to work with.

The Benefits of Professional B2B Photography

Consistent and Matching Images

Gustavo Fernandez Photography knows that when photographing company headshots, consistency is key. Subjects will have your specific look and lighting, every single time. Each portrait will not only look great on its own, but will be part of a cohesive set of images with the same specifications, all tailored to match your brand. As you expand and hire new employees, each one of them will also have a matching headshot, even across different locations.

Professionalism And Communication

We understand what companies are looking for – you need a photographer who is professional, personable, responsive, and competent. The process should be seamless and stress-free from photo shoot to delivery, with a quick turnaround. You won’t need to hand-hold; once we have a mutual understanding of what you want, we will deliver, every time.

We Can Help You Look Your Best

Your staff may not feel “camera ready” or maybe no one really wants their photos taken, but Gustavo makes the process quick and painless. Proper lighting, posing, and a little Photoshop come together to enhance the best traits, and we will be sure to capture natural smiles. We even offer a professional hair and makeup artist to give each team member a quick touch up before they step in front of the camera, if you choose to add it.

Traveling Photo Studio

Instead of taking hours out of your work day for photos, GFP comes to your workplace, and sets up a mini studio in your conference room, so each staff member only needs to miss about 15-20 minutes of billable time. Not only does this save you time and money, but it makes the task seem much less daunting, and remains easy to keep up with as you hire new team members.

Elevate Your Brand

Photography is an important marketing tool, and your headshots are a large part of how you present your business, both on your company website and on social media. Invest in your image and elevate your brand perception with quality headshots.

When was the last time you had professional headshots taken?

Great headshots are absolutely essential as a thriving professional in today’s digital world, and they’re the most important component for making a captivating first impression.

 

As your photographer, my goal is to make you shine in front of the camera and capture your essence — creating inviting photos that attract your ideal clientele.

A headshot is a photograph of one’s head and shoulders, with the main focus of the image being the face. Photos often feature a solid or neutral background, and can be cropped vertically or horizontally.
