In today’s primarily virtual world, a head shot is most likely the first impression you will have with potential clients. Having a professional head shot is a great way to boost your confidence and gives others a better idea of your professional abilities. Though people say to “never judge a book by its cover”, it’s always a good idea to try to make the best first impression that you possibly can.

Here at Photography by Jodi Lynn, we want to help you stand out from the crowd and stay fresh in your potential clients and colleagues’ minds! Choosing the right outfit can take your photos to the next level. Not sure what to wear? We’ve put together a no-fuss guide on what you should bring to your photo shoot.

Keep it simple and neutral.

Not sure where to start? Black, white, and greys are go-to classic colors that are perfect for that timeless and clean look. You can never go wrong with these!

Blazer or no blazer?

We say yes to both! Always bring a neutral colored, well-fitted blazer to your shoot as we can take photos with it on and off to give you some diversity. Don’t be afraid of some color though! Bolder colors like jewel tones can still be just as nice and work well with a variety of skin tones.

Stick with tradition.

Button-ups and blouses should be the foundation to your outfit (or at least one of your outfits). A business dress, cardigan, or nice sweater are also great choices! We want you to look good, but comfortable too! You should feel like best yourself when you wear your outfit.

Let one thing be the focus.

Whether that is a jewelry piece, a pop of color, or a printed garment, chose which one should be the highlight of your outfit and keep the rest simple.

Now that you have a better idea of what to bring, let’s talk details.

What colors or patterns should I wear? Solid colors look great on camera, and let YOU be the focus in the image. However, we do love a subtle print here and there to bring in some interest. A fun idea would be incorporating a print that goes along with your type of business!

Great grooming can go a long way. Good grooming and hygiene are crucial for a great head shot. This is your chance to look your absolute best! Ideally you will want a simple, clean, and soft makeup look that shows off the real YOU. We always offer in-studio hair and makeup services for those that are interested!

How do I portray my business in my head shots?

You can always incorporate your clothes that you wear for your profession into your head shot session. Are you a yoga instructor? Let’s take some action and resting shots of you in your gear! Accessories and props are also an easy way to show people who you are and what you’re about.

Another great way to give your head shots some more style is considering a different colored background. We have multiple options at the studio, and it can bring in some life to traditional photos. Think of your industry and career field and how we can match that same feeling. We loved doing a blush pink background for our beauty team gals! If you’re wanting anything other than a white or grey background for your session, please let us know beforehand!

Why not try a more “lifestyle” approach? Let’s take some more relaxed photos in a comfortable setting that shows off your personality, and can be more versatile for your business needs.

Whatever your business or personal needs are, Photography by Jodi Lynn offers a variety of packages to suit each individual. Book your session here, or to learn more feel free to contact us!

The Adventure of Moms

Motherhood is an adventure. It is one of the hardest and most rewarding adventures of all time. Whether you are a mom of one or many, you are the hardest working woman for your kids. We believe in celebrating your womanhood and femininity. One way that we celebrate your beauty is with our Boudoir photography with our sister brand Le Boudour Studio. For some women, pregnancy does not make them feel beautiful and sexy. There are so many bodily changes that can be both mentally and physically taxing. This is one reason why we love maternity photography, especially our milk bath sessions!

Spring is Here!

March 2, 2021

Spring as Sweet as Tea 

Spring has definitely hit here in Arizona. With our early 80 degree weather and practically no winter (except for that weird day of random snow?!), Arizona is back to warming up again. This is such a great time though because let’s be real, that 80 degree sweet spot feels amazing! It’s when it starts to get above that 95 mark when we really start to dread the heat we know is coming. I know I personally dream of more pool days again. When it comes to family portraits, this is the literal perfect time to get the kids together and snap a family moment in time! 

 

 

Gorgeous Arizona Landscapes

Everyone is taking their activities to the outdoors right now and we are on the exact same wave. Spring family photos are some of our favorite types of portrait sessions! Pastels, florals, and fresh air. There are so many gorgeous views around Phoenix that we love to visit for Spring family photos. First, the Lost Dutchman State Park is an all-time favorite! Mornings here are filled with native plant blooms, birds, little animal friends, and gorgeous geologic structures like the Superstition Mountains. We love this location because not only are there perfect backdrops but there is so much to learn and interact with! There is never a dull moment at Lost Dutchman State Park! After your session, take the family to Goldfield Ghost Town for lunch! 

 

 

Fun and Exciting Arizona Family Portraits 

Right next to the botanical gardens is another favorite location, Papago Park. Papago Park is home to hole in the rock as well as various bodies of water and perfect desert mountain landscape backdrops. A short climb up to hole in the rock will reveal a great view of Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe! Similarly, this awesome family’s session was in North Scottsdale, up in the beautiful boulders. Jodi Lynn has been photographing this glowing mama since before she was even pregnant with her littles! She loves that she has gotten to see them grow and work with this family for so long now. That is what this business is all about, getting to know these sweet families and watch their tribe grow. 

 

 

Upcoming San Diego Family Sessions

We are so excited to announce that we will be offering for the FIRST TIME EVER – summer beach photoshoot sessions in San Diego, California on June 4th-7th! Want to catch your family in the ocean?

This is a really sweet way to bond as a family.  Especially with multiple sessions like the Bump to One, you get to really see the bond siblings share overtime. It is a great way to capture times where they aren’t fighting over toys or the remote.

Let’s capture this special milestone and make sure it’s stopped in time. We’ve got plenty of perfect options for your shoot from the Soft and Sweet to the Beloved Bella, whether you want hair and makeup done, a mommy and me experience, a shoot with the entire family, and indoor or outdoor photography!

 

Baby Milk Bath Sessions

We love the strawberry bath for this ‘6 months’ photoshoot. No can resist exclaiming a big “Aw!” when they see your cutie in these strawberry baths! It’s an incredibly fun and immersive style for your baby whether they want to splash around or inspect a strawberry, maybe even pick it up and test their tossing skills! Baby will be totally mesmerized by this colorful, warm bath and it makes for the absolute sweetest pictures. Maybe they’ll try to take a big chomp out of one – those shots are so sweet! Our little ones definitely keep us laughing. These will last you a lifetime and are so special for capturing your baby’s rapid growth. We all know they grow up way too fast!

 

A variety of Photography packages

Include the family! We love having siblings come along, grandparents, and parents. This can be a special occasion for the whole family and everyone can be a part of the memory making. When it comes to packages, you’ll have to keep in mind how many people you want to bring. The Soft and Sweet is perfect for smaller families of up to three people and all other packages are perfect for up to 5 people. Have a large family? Don’t worry, we can add them in! Some packages also come with hair and makeup so we can pamper you! If yours doesn’t, we can easily add it so you can look as gorgeous as you should feel for this sweet shoot!

When picking out what to wear, we love to suggest neutrals, soft pinks and ivories, light greys, even light baby blues!

Take a look at our galleries for inspiration! If you need any help, we’ve got a client closet totally ready to go for both you and baby.
