Ready to get back to work!

If you are ready, I am!

The weather is wonderful and we can finally get back out in the world. One of my favorite new lighting set ups uses natural light and working partially outside. This type of set up, I believe, will be an extra safe way to do headshot sessions. Although we will need to be closer than 6 feet to shoot, I am technically outside, but the subject is inside (sounds odd I know)! Sample images of this lighting set up below.

There is also the option of being totally outside for your headshots, weather/wind etc..can make this a little more tricky but it is certainly possible if you prefer to be 6 feet apart at all times. There are a number of interesting locations right outside the studio to give us some varied backgrounds. I will also add a few samples images of this option below.

I will only have one person in the studio at any given time and will allow plenty of time for thorough cleaning in between sessions also, I am happy to wear a mask if you prefer.

Full sessions are available with multiple backgrounds (the set up described above and also classic studio set up) or a quicker mini session with just the natural light.

Everyone is different and has different wants/needs when it comes to headshots. I am happy to create a custom session just for you. Whether it’s a super fast headshot for busy realtors or a full session with multiple clothing changes for actors, I can get that done.

Just like you, I love to make appointments online! However, since we really need to get to know each other a bit, I think it’s important to have an email exchange where we can discuss what type of images you prefer and I can give you a feel for how I work. It’s painless, I promise! Just shoot me a quick email, and let’s talk about what days/times are good for you and I can get the info necessary to quote you the best price possible. Amy@AmyJPhoto.com

Not my best look, but I am happy to wear a mask for you!

Headshots are not just for actors and models….

It is what I do most…headshots! Almost everyone needs one. Here are just a few!

I can do a quick mini session for realtors or other busy professionals. For performers, I can offer smaller or larger sessions to give you multiple looks with wardrobe changes.

Just email me and we can discuss what you need. Amy@AmyJPhoto.com

Amy is wonderful.  She is not only exceptionally talented by trade but she makes the shoot experience easy and incredibly comfortable.  I am camera shy and not confident when posing or looking into the lens but with Amy’s direction and guidance we always get amazing shots that make me look like a natural.  I would highly recommend working with Amy.”   Lisa Roulette

Personal branding images

Since everyone needs a headshot these days for websites and social media marketing I have been doing a lot more personal branding images. Some clients want a clean, simple image done in the studio and others want to shoot at their place of business. Either way works! These sessions can be as small and simple as you would like, or they can include lots of clothing/location options for a full shoot with lots of choices.

Fashion Photography

Fashion Photography gives me the opportunity to work with models, makeup/hair people and stylists.  Sometimes we are shooting for a magazine and sometimes it’s for a model’s portfolio/zed card.  No matter what the reason, I love being able to be creative!

Environmental headshots and business portraits

An alternative to a traditional head shot for professionals is the environmental portrait.  If you are lucky enough to have an interesting work space you can incorporate the office into your photos.  Location shoots are a little more complicated but ultimately it makes for an eye catching image to promote your business.
