Corporate Head Shots- Financial Advisors- Hartford, CT

I recently had a session with some new financial advisors who have joined a firm that I worked with last year. We were able to get them each a new professional head shot to add to the company’s website and some images for them to use on Linkedin as well. Here are the final images chosen by each advisor…

Women’s Comprehensive Health Ob/Gyn Group Head Shots- Professional Head Shot Photographer Hartford, CT

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to take professional head shots of all 15 of the doctors and nurses that work in the ob/gyn department at the Women’s Comprehensive Health group. These photos will be used to update their profiles on their website, for marketing materials, etc. Also, I will be creating three beautiful framed collages to display in their various office locations.

I really enjoy working with all different types of professionals to provide them with something that is so essential to their careers these days. I also like the detail work that goes into these sessions. Though the initial shoot is actually fairly simple, the editing work is very detail oriented and I love the challenge that this provides. It is especially rewarding to hear back from the individual or group when they let you know how pleased they are with the results. So many people feel that a head shot will inevitably be similar to a driver’s license photo and cannot possibly be flattering. But I definitely believe that there is no reason why a head shot should be any less flattering that any other portrait I would take. It is my job to make my clients look their best, while still looking natural and not overly Photoshopped. That is something I really work hard to achieve and I hope that the results show in my work samples here.

If you or your business/organization are in need of an updated professional head shot, please feel free to contact me at (860)508-8300 or kathryn@kathryndeane.com to discuss the options. I’d be happy to work with you to create a custom package that suits your specific needs.

Cigna Professional Corporate Head Shot Session- Head Shots Hartford, CT

Just doing a little catch up on the blog today and thought I’d share some samples from a recent session I did with Cigna in Bloomfield at their training headquarters. Cigna contacted me to come in and shoot head shots for 30 of their employees who were attending a leadership conference here in Connecticut. The goal was to get a high quality, professional head shot for each person that could be used to help build their image as leaders in their insurance industry. I was so pleased with the results and truly enjoyed working with each and every person I met that day. Here are just a few samples from the shots I took that day:

Business Head Shots Can Be Fun Too! – Professional Head Shots: West Hartford, CT

I had the opportunity to work with a lovely client who is in the process of opening a kids/teen consignment shop and needed some up-to-date head shots to use on her website. Since her adorable pug is the official mascot and the inspiration behind the name of her new shop, we decided to include her in the shoot as well! Since this business has a fun, quirky vibe to it, we decided to skip the traditional corporate head shot look and go for something bright, colorful and fun. Who says business head shots can’t be fun too?? 😉

Here are a few of my favorite shots from our session:

Hi all! Just wanted to share a quick post about a head shot session I just shot this week. I’ve been traveling most of the summer and taking some time off from working, but am trying to sneak in a few sessions on my two weeks home. Here are some samples from a session I just had this week with a lovely woman who needed some up to date, casual head shots to use online. We met up for a sunset session and got some fantastic shots:-) Here are a few of my favorites:

Modern, Fresh Looking Head Shots for Professionals of All Ages- Head Shot Photographer- Hartford, CT

Who says head shots have to be boring?! I can tell you now that I definitely don’t believe that to be true….so here is my take on the fresh, modern looking head shots that we all should have going forward… No more stuffy, tie dyed looking grey backdrop with an unflattering, uncomfortable pose. No thank you….not anymore. Here is the recipe for what I think head shots should be all about in 2014:

1) A portrait client who is willing to step outside of the box and show their personality on camera.

2) A photographer skilled in taking crisp, focused photos while being able to talk you through a variety of flattering poses…oh and one that can make you laugh when you are feeling awkward in front of the camera….this is actually much more important than you might think!

3) An interesting, natural backdrop mixed with ideal lighting in a fresh new setting….preferably at sunset!

Mix those together and you get these….perfect for work, Linkin, Facebook, Twitter, a website, dating sites, and the list goes on and on. If you don’t have a great shot of yourself like these, then call me ASAP and let’s get that corrected. Here are a few of my favorites from my recent head shot session:

Ladies Only Birthday Party Get Together- West Hartford Portrait Photographer

Back in February, I had a session that was given as a gift to a mother/grandmother for her birthday. The women and girls in the family were having a ladies only weekend of celebrating, so they invited me to come and take some photos of the whole group to commemorate this special milestone birthday. It was absolutely freezing outside, so we decided to stay indoors and get some beautiful shots of everyone as a group and as individuals. If you have a parent/grandparent who will be celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or even Mother’s/Father’s Day, this is a wonderful gift idea and is something that the recipient will treasure for years to come. Here are a few shots from our session:
