Often when we think of headshots, many people think of stiff, static pictures of subjects with out-of-date hairstyles and impersonal professional clothing, but headshots can be so much more. Today on the Photography By Jodi Lynn blog, we are going to show you just how fun taking lifestyle headshots with a portrait photographer can be and how they can actually show your best self and personality. It’s time to say goodbye to boring glamour shots!   

Who Should Get Headshots?

Anyone can get headshots! This style of photography is all about capturing you: your personality and style. However, we encourage real estate professionals, boutique owners, bloggers, and other professionals in Phoenix to invest in quality lifestyle headshots. Why? Not only will they demonstrate your professionalism, but they will show the personality you have to offer them if they work with you.     

3 Tips For Taking Photos You’ll Love

It’s easy to feel intimidated or self-conscious when thinking about taking pictures, but when you work with us, we create a comfortable environment that will help you shine. Headshots are all about capturing you. Below are some tips for feeling comfortable in your own skin and your very best — your most beautiful self.

Choose Your Power Outfit

In business, a blue suit has traditionally been called “the power suit.” In the same way, each of us have colors, clothing styles, and materials that make us feel the most like ourselves. Like in the photos here, our client chose two of her favorite outfits that make her feel beautiful. When choosing the ensemble for your pictures, remember it’s not about having the latest styles, it’s about showing your individuality. Also, don’t forget about your favorite accessories!

Get Creative With Poses

One of the things we love about what we do is capturing our client’s personality through multiple poses and angles. Gone are the days of static poses. When doing a photo shoot, we encourage our clients to sit, stand, lay down, twirl, and do what feels natural to them. We will help you find a pose that looks good and feels natural. If looking at the camera doesn’t feel comfortable, don’t worry! There are a lot of great ways to capture you, without looking at the lens.   


Choose Your Favorite Props

In her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo says that being surrounded by our favorite things will make us feel happy. In the same way, incorporating our favorite things into headshots can be a great way to bring out our personality. What items do you love and which of them show off your passions? Do you have a favorite mug or notebook like our client? Are you the happiest when in a room full of books? When choosing your props, get creative!

Jodi Lynn and Traci of Photography By Jodi Lynn are passionate about capturing our client’s inner and outer beauty through lifestyle headshots that you will not only love for years to come, but will help drive the success of your business in Phoenix.

PHOENIX FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURES GENDER REVEAL

Just as every baby is different, the same holds true for baby gender reveal photo sessions as well. A growing trend among Instagram and Facebook is using a large black balloon containing colored confetti or glitter to reveal the gender of your newest family member. We love being a part of these very special shoots and are very careful to never reveal the secret! We even transported the balloons in a different car than Jodi just to make sure she wouldn’t find out until it was time. We took some sweet family shots and a few showcasing “the bump” before we helped to capture the exact moment when Jodi and her family found out the gender of their patiently awaited baby

 

IT’S A GIRL

Congratulations Jodi Lynn on your beautiful baby girl. We here at Photography by Jodi Lynn can’t wait to meet her and of course photograph her from the moment she’s born past her cake smash and beyond!

THE DAYS OF MATCHY-MATCHY OUTFITS ARE OVER! HOW TO COLOR CO-ORDINATE TO CREATE A FLOWING PICTURE

Once upon a time it was common practice to tote the kids out in the exact same outfit for a family shoot, but here at Photography by Jodi Lynn, we find that donning clothes in the same color family, or complimenting opposites is the best way to go. This family played with light bright colors like blue and white complimented by a fall-friendly crimson and sweet pink. There are so many different options and combinations when choosing clothes for your session.

Adolescence is a confusing time for young ladies and gentlemen. Along with suffering through puberty, youth brings forth a confusing array of emotions and self-discoveries that can leave your young adult reeling. In our teen and senior sessions, we here at Photography by Jodi Lynn want to bring it back to the basics with a sweet outdoor session.

REMIND YOUR TEEN THAT SHE IS BEAUTIFUL BOTH INSIDE AND OUT AND GIVE HER TOOLS TO GROW CONFIDENTLY

Confidence is a learned trait, give your teen the best possible outcome by booking a session for them that allows them to express themselves fully and without judgement, and the best part is, you can have a custom album documenting it all. For this session, we met up with Ms. L and her parents at our stunning, lush, green outdoor location. Although initially very shy, Ms. L really blossomed as the session progressed. It was clear from her choice of wardrobe that she felt at home among the greenery. Comfortable and calm, she was able to garner some confidence and by the end of the session, could not wait to come back!

EXPRESSION THROUGH CLOTHING AND PATTERNS MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Ms. L wore a cute, feminine top and dress that made her feel like the graceful young lady that she is quickly blossoming into, and like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis, your teen will only be this way for a short while. Make sure you never forget her sweet little smile, or his goofy cowlick with a personal and intimate session designed to make them feel most like themselves.
