Professional Headshots | Round Rock, TX

Do you know how important headshots are for professionals?

Think of headshots as your visual brand.

For small business owners (like myself), a photo of you represents your business.  You are the face of your business.  Your headshots should represent you at your best!

Here are a few tips for getting professional headshots done.

  1. Less is best.  Don't wear distracting clothing, but something that flatters you.  Solid colors work best no matter what kind of headshot you need for you profession.
  2. Your clothing doesn't have to match your profession.  You don't have to wear business attire in for your business headshots.  You can wear something more you and still make it look good and professional.
  3. Keep the background simple.  There's always the standard black and grey background that work great for everyone because they are neutrals.  However, you can get artistic with your background by using a solid building wall, brick building, and natural scenery.  Just make sure you stand out from your background.
  4. As your appearance changes, you need to get a new headshot.  The average life of a headshot is 2 years.  People can change a lot in two years, so keep an updated headshot that looks like you up on your profile.
  5. Hire a professional photographer.  Headshots seem simple enough, but there is a lot more to them.  Hire a professional who knows what they are doing and not your friend with a cool camera.

Newborn Photo Session | Round Rock, TX

I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful newborn girl a couple of weeks ago.  She decided to surprise her parents by coming a few weeks early, but Mom and Dad were excited to see her sweet face!  Nothing quite like looking into the eyes of your sweet baby girl for the first time!

Not only did I have the pleasure of photographing this sweet newborn, but I was able to capture the love between Mom and Dad with their new baby girl.  As an added bonus, their cute dog wanted to join in on the action of being in the photo session.  Congratulations to this sweet family and their new baby girl!

Family Photo Shoot | Round Rock, TX

Family generation photo sessions are something I love to photograph.  When I get can three or more generations in one photo, it makes the session special for me.

Wondering why it means so much to me?

Mainly because I love the photos I have of myself, my mom, and my grandma.  There aren't a lot of them, so cherish the ones I do have.  Even if it's just snap shot (like the one from my bridal luncheon many moons ago), I love it.  My grandma is getting older; she turned 93 this year.  And as much I want her to stay around for awhile longer, there's no promise she will.  So I make every effort to hold onto those precious memories I have of her.

I photographed three generations in this photo session, and I know this family will cherish them for some time to come.  Plus, I was able to photograph a Labradoodle who was huge but the sweetest dog!

Nothing quite like holding up/throwing a wet tennis ball to get a dog's attention with a camera in the other!  It was definitely not a first and I'm sure won't be the last!  Enjoy this family photo session!

Newborn Photo Session | Georgetown, TX

When I have the opportunity to photograph a newborn, my heart always melts a little.  It melts even more when the parents are first time parents.  The love and adoration they have in their eyes for their newborn is all encompassing.  And these parents are no different.  Their first little girl is adorable!  And I had the extra special job of having her newborn photo session in their new home in Georgetown, TX, and I photographed their little girl with their two sweet dogs.  Let me tell you, this little girl is loved by those dogs!  Congratulations on your new little girl!

3 year old Birthday Mini-Session | Georgetown, TX

What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a photo session! I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph this almost 3 year old little girl in Downtown Georgetown, Texas.  We walked around a block, and I was able to capture her adorable personality.  And she loved posing for the camera!  She is such a cutie!  Another reason I love my job as a photographer.

Happy Birthday to this beautiful little girl!
