This Headshot of the Week! comes straight out of a corporate session from last week. Chelsey T. was part of a group of over 20 people that I shot over two hours. Shooting so many people in a short time does create challenges. However, since I’m not afraid to be a big goof (not a stretch for me) I have an advantage when it comes to getting those natural smiles and connection in a short time. Chelsey has a great look here and has great connection to the camera making this an easy choice for Headshot of the Week!



First off, I love this look! Chris B. is this week's Headshot of the Week! and he nailed it. He's got just that right amount of smile as he's staring right out of the screen at you. And this was the first shot of the session! Chris walked in, hit the spot and "Boom!", we were done before we even got started. We took several more but I knew this shot was going to the be the winner and likely to be a headshot of the week, which it is for this week. Awesome job, Chris! 



Fifty-six headshots in about 75 minutes! That is NOT how I prefer to work but sometimes you just have to roll with it. Despite the time crunch I found this shot of Cindy B. my favorite for the first Headshot of the Week! for July, 2017. When you have less than two minutes per person you have to be working it full on to get people loosened up and having a good time in front of your camera. Luckily I have no problem being a goof (I'm a natural) and Cindy got into the groove quick. This shot was third of the five images I had time to shoot with her before moving on to the next person. Still, I had a feeling she was going to shine when she first stepped in front of the camera, and I think that feeling was spot on. Great job Cindy!



So what happens when you have a headshot shoot with an amazing model? You end up with a crazy amount of great shots! So many it was really really tough to pick just one. After some time reviewing back and forth through the shots I kept coming back to this closeup shot of Meagan. Meagan White and I shot together for this time this past weekend and she totally spoiled me. She of course looks fantastic but she also brings a professional attitude to the work while having a lot of fun in the process. Thanks so much Meagan for making this week's Headshot of the Week! so easy!

I don't always shoot headshots with a gray background, but when I do, this happens. This shot of my friend Katie B is from a recent session I did with her and some of our colleagues here at HCA. I shot most of this session with a white background but when the background light misfired, we of course got a gray background instead. Katie really liked that look so I turned off that background light for the rest of her photos and out of that group came my favorite shot from the session. Katie's got fantastic eyes and that smile is the perfect balance of approachable and confident  making this shot an easy pick for Headshot of the Week! for June 19th.
