The minute Melissa walked into my studio I noticed how beautiful she looked. Her long graceful neck had a very regal quality, and her facial features were classically gorgeous. Sensing her apprehension about having attention drawn to herself, we began to chat about her reason for today’s session.
Melissa’s profession requires updated corporate photos, but she has been procrastinating because, now that she was in her 50's, she didn’t want to go in a huge warehouse studio with all the young models around. As we talked over coffee she began to relax a bit, and actually seemed excited about getting started.
She loved the personal attention she received during her hair and makeup session with Valentina, and by the time she had finished with her, she was smiling. We selected a very casual but classy outfit for the corporate shots. As you can see in this photo, she is the image of confidence. Her hair and make up give her an air of authority without compromising her femininity.
It took a little coaching, but she finally agreed to indulge my inner diva and let me “fancy” her up, just a little, for a glamour shot. We gave her make up a more dramatic look, added some texture to her hair, and just look at the end results. Nothing short of stunning!
I knew Melissa was beautiful when she walked into my studio, when she came back to review the proofs and select her photos, she knew it too!
I really hope the photoshoot experience changed her perception about herself.
Here is her Testimonial:
"I usually feel very uncomfortable in front of a camera, so I was attracted by the fact that Valerie photographs women in a private environment. Having my make-up done and photos taken in the intimacy of her studio apartment made me so much more relaxed, and Valerie and her make-up artist Valentina were so down to earth. I think is then reflected in the naturalness of the photographs, which is what I was hoping for".
Corporate headshots can be tricky. On the one hand, you want to look your best, but you still need to convey professionalism and experience. Without an experienced photographer, your photo can send all the wrong signals.
I am an award-winning photographer who helps women in the corporate world put their best look forward. I know how important these headshots are for your career - and here are 4 reasons why I am the best photographer for your next corporate headshots.
1. I am conveniently located.
My studio is in Surry Hills, right next to Central Station. No matter where you are in Sydney, getting to my studio is easy and convenient.
This means you can easily work your appointment around your schedule. When you don't have to rush or endure a long commute, you'll arrive fresher and more relaxed - and it will show in your photos.
2. My studio is intimate and relaxed.
Many women avoid headshots because they're intimidated by taking photos in a large, corporate studio. This is especially true if there are a lot of young models scurrying around - talk about pressure!
You don't have to worry about any of that at my studio. I work out of my studio apartment, so you get all the intimacy of home. I believe this helps put my subjects at ease, and that translates to confidence - a must-have in any corporate headshot.
3. I am very good at what I do.
I don't say this to brag, but to let you know that you are in good hands. I take pride in my work, and it brings me satisfaction to know that my clients are happy. I am a woman and I know how to capture a vibrant, elegant and authentic portrait of you that reflects your personality and reveal your inner beauty.
