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!

Traditional baby photography will always be a classic, but we have become obsessed with the
milk bath photo shoots. Milk baths are simple, yet they create the most serene photos. Each
session is dreamy and easy to personalize, you can add literally anything to the “stage”-
flowers, leaves, and even color the water. Not only are these fun sessions simple, but the setting is calm, comfortable and natural. It allows the babies to have enough coverage to where they are not too exposed while adding something as simple as daises will create the most timeless photos for your family to cherish for a lifetime.

 

MILK BATH FUN; ARIZONA BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

                             We were in heaven a few days ago in our natural light studio with the smell of fresh flowers, our favorite lavender oil and baby “A” in high spirits. We were all ready to get this precious 18 month baby into her milk bath session. It didn’t take very long to get set up; we grabbed our vintage enamel tub, filled it up with warm water and added our favorite bottle of village naturals milk bath, placed our favorite daisies and got this sweet babe ready to get messy! She splashed around and had a blast while we captured all her amazing laughs and smiles throughout the session!

At Photography by Jodi Lynn, we photograph babies at all their milestones newborn and older.  We suggest doing a milk bath for your baby between the ages of 10 and 18 months, depending on their stability. Most toddlers at 12-18 months have developed their sense of self, which makes this milk bath session with Baby A’s blossoming personality really shine through with in each image.

At Photography By Jodi Lynn and Co, lifestyle shoots are something we love to take part in. Lifestyle photography captures the sweet moments that are here today and gone tomorrow. During each session we have with a family, we are able to take the real, rare and special pictures that families will be able to hold onto forever.

This indoor family session was a pure reminder how beautiful it is to start a family with someone you love.

CAPTURING NEW FAMILIES FOR THE FIRST TIME

When a baby is born, a new version of yourself is born. Becoming parents is nothing short of a new and beautiful journey. Once you become a parent life isn’t just about you, it is about the life you just created and that’s what makes it so special. Parenthood is the most rewarding experience for a couple to grow through together.

The interaction we witnessed between this new family was simply beautiful. As parents, we know the euphoric feeling of becoming a mother and a family, which made this shoot melt our hearts. The way they giggled, smiled, held, and touched one another showed true love between a couple growing into parents. We were able to capture the already strong bond between daddy and his baby girl.

As lifestyle photographers we pose our clients and their genuine emotion still shine through to the photos. This family is a perfect example for how timeless our photo sessions are. Not only do we capture a family; we capture the essence of love, personality and connection.
