Business Headshots by Davis, CA photographer

Posted on: March 3rd, 2018

Some beautiful outdoor headshots taken at the end of Winter in Davis, CA. It was pretty chilly, but we had clear skies (even if only for 30 minutes)! The start of the year is a great time to update your professional headshot.

Actor’s Headshots by Sacramento Headshot Photographer

Posted on: March 16th, 2014

I always love when actors come in to the studio for headshots. My degree is in theatre performance from SFSU and (a little known fact) I actually started my photography business with this particular client base in mind. As the years went on, I have found a love for wedding, event and portrait photography as well, but it’s always a treat to do headshots for performers. I also direct local plays and know the importance of the power a headshot adds to your audition. Wherever actors get their headshots done, its always important to connect through the eyes, and focus on showing depth.

Remember: The right headshots are an important part of any audition. Directors want to see a current, professional photo of you as they make their decisions on casting.

Meet the team at Keller Williams Realty, Roseville! Rachel Adams and Matt Aitchison were among my VERY first clients 2 years ago, and I am always honored each time they come back to work with me again.

The beautiful, talented “triple threat,” Emily Kelly.  She is an amazing dancer, singer and actress and also a great model!  We have so much fun working together, and I feel so privileged to have featured her in my first dance shoot as well as the Film Noir shoot.  Watch out world ~ I am sure there are great things ahead for this lady, in college and beyond.
