Composite headshots make bad weather reschedules a thing of the past.

You may not have noticed but Raleigh broke some records last year for all of the wrong reasons. More rainy, wet and gray days than ever before and trust me as someone who works outside regularly, it was quite a bummer! Some sessions can wait for a sunny day but what if you have executives in town for only that one day? What if you want the look of a gorgeous office space but you work in a cluttered cubicle or the look of a downtown street without the humidity wreaking havoc on your hair? Shooting in our Raleigh studio and editing the background after is a cost effective and easy way to create the look you want.

Composite images can be taken in studio on simple backgrounds that work well on their own; or you can take things up a notch in post processing. Professional headshot and composite photos are a great way to maintain a consistent brand for your company, group or team. New team members added at a later time will maintain the same lighting and perspective ensuring a uniform brand wherever your photos are displayed. We can even take a background photo of a location you have in mind for a custom look whatever the season or weather.

We bring the studio to you, on location headshots happen right in your office. While our studio is a great option for many Raleigh – Durham businesses some prefer to to have the studio come to them.

Family Business Institute needed updated photos of their board of directors. While some live in North Carolina others do not, making cohesive branding photos a little more tricky. They meet for a once a year in person, and this year was at the beautiful North Ridge Country Club in Raleigh. The original plan was outdoor photos using the beautiful grounds but an unusually rainy 2018 left us with plan B: a portable studio look.

They opted for a medium / dark gray background which is a great neutral look for corporate headshots. We met before the meetings began and provided light make up retouching and a quick (and painless!) photo session of each person without disrupting the schedule. When a date is already scheduled for meetings and team gatherings, adding on location headshots is an easy way to update your branding and providing each employee with a headshot without any added stress. Having a make up artist on site is highly recommended to make the day run smoothly and have everyone looking photo-ready.

On location headshots can be anything you like; using the surrounding location indoors or outdoors, backdrops ranging from white to black (or a unique pop of color!), or a digital composite background added after the session. We can set up in any available space and work within the confines of just about any schedule. Contact us if you would like to add headshots to your next corporate event!

They opted for an outdoor photo session as their dental office is surrounded by lush tropical plants (not something we see too often in Raleigh, NC!). It was a hot Florida summer day so we worked fast to avoid the sweat and the result was a look very custom to their practice. Some practices choose to wear matching scrubs for headshot photos but I find a variety of looks in complimenting colors works as well.

Staff photos are more important than ever with the role that websites and social media play in marketing for a competitive market.

Headshots were the main priority on this day but we also shot a few photos of the building, some working shots from inside the practice and an updated team photo. And I mentioned my mom – I can’t end this post without sharing her beautiful photo as well!
