Professional headshots can be of great value to any business. Nowadays, the first impression a client gets of you and your business is not face to face, but through your website or social media pages. Good information about your service is obviously very important, but if you work in an industry where your client will also be putting their trust in you, a professional headshot or portrait can really make you stand out from the crowd and give your prospective client a sense of who you are.
KL Advanced Cosmetics is run by Kirsty Louise Whitworth, BMedSci (Hons) RGN, aesthetic nurse practitioner and independent nurse prescriber based in Doncaster, Yorkshire. She offers many services including Dermal Fillers, Lip Enhancement, Derma Roller and many more non-surgical procedures. Kirsty is in the process of having her website redesigned, and her web designer commented that her headshot is out of date, so she came to me for a new one.
Kirsty came to the studio in January. She had requested a clean, bright look for her headshots, to match her new website. This is a little different from my usual studio style, which is more of a fine art style with a modern twist. But it was no problem, I just set up my lights differently to how I normally would. Headshot sessions include 5 edited web sized images (upgradable to high resolution if the images are to be used in print), so to get a good variety we tried several easy poses to give Kirsty plenty to pick from. Kirsty had her make-up done for the shoot. This is something I would recommend for women, but if possible do go to a make-up artist that you have used before.
With family or pet portrait sessions, my clients are invited back to the studio for a viewing, to pick their images and products, and I am on hand to answer questions and talk over product options. However, professional headshot clients have a choice of the viewing session at the studio or, because these images are supplied on a disc, I can put a private gallery on my website where you can pick your images from the comfort of your own home or office. I will also put a personal note on gallery to give advice and make sure you get a good variety of headshots which makes the process easier.
Kirsty picked her 5 images with ease.. and they just happened to be my favourite 5 images too!
Due to Kirsty's profession we decided to go for a beauty like edit and also to do a couple of edits in black and white to add even more variety to these clean and minimalist style images.
After I had finished the edits, I supplied the images to Kirsty both on a disc, and I also put the finished images onto her online gallery so all she needs to do to get them to her web designer is send him the link and he can download them from there!
