Once your children are college-aged, it can be challenging to coordinate any family outing let alone a professional family portrait. As a studio photographer working with families throughout Northern Virginia, including Oakton, VA and Vienna, VA, we understand the complexities of family schedules. We have lived it ourselves! It is why we are offering the entire month of January for family portraits in the studio!

If you weren’t able to schedule family portraits before the holidays, the days following the holidays are equally useful for professional pictures! College-aged kids are likely still home. Call our studios to take advantage of everyone being home (and maybe driving you a little crazy) to do fine art professional portraits!

We can do your portraits at our portrait photography studio – whether indoors or outdoors (weather permitting). Keep in mind that doing January portraits in the Northern Virginia area usually means taking them indoors. That’s not a bad thing, though!

Here are six reasons to do family portraits in January at our studio:

1. Doing indoor winter session portraits mean we can select the background.
2. We can easily manipulate the lighting conditions using our equipment.
3. All of our equipment is within arm’s reach, so there’s no need to pack up any gear and take it off-site.
4. The studio is climate controlled for your comfort. Ahhh, warmth!!
5. The holiday frenzy is over! Yes! Breathe!
6. Kids are home for the holidays – meaning you can do a portrait with the entire family represented!

So, if you’d like to work with an experienced studio photographer who understands family schedules and dynamics, contact us TODAY to schedule your portraits! You can find us working hard at our craft in Sterling, VA, not far from Oakton, VA and Vienna, VA.

A Session with the Grandparents! | Northern VA Family Photographer

A Session with the Grandparents! | Northern VA Family Photographer

On a cold day, we had this wonderful portrait session inside our portrait photography studio. Tucked warmly indoors, not far from the Oakton, VA area, this loving, multi-generational session touched our hearts. We centered the portraits around the love and bond between grandparents and their grandchildren.

Liz and Travis wanted to have fine art portraits of their children with their maternal grandmother and paternal grandfather. They knew that the day would come for the children when these portraits would serve as a poignant legacy. Kathleen, Liz’s mother, and Floyd, Travis’ father, valued the opportunity to do this session with their beloved grandchildren. It didn’t take much to capture their joy in these portraits!

Multi-generational Photographs:

As a studio photographer, we urge you to consider multi-generational portraits. Not all grandchildren will remember their grandparents. Even when they do, not many will have beautiful, professional portraits to treasure for a lifetime.

Inevitably, the day will come when portraits will fill in the gaps of our fading memories. While the emotions of feeling loved by, and loving, someone will remain tucked deep within us, our mental portraits of them will begin to blur. Were it not for photographs, and painted portraits before photography, we’d struggle with our memories.

Multi-generational portraits are an extraordinary legacy you create for your children, and a gift you offer the older generation. Liz and Travis understood this which explains their investment in fine art portraiture of the oldest and youngest in their family. One day, Gabby and Christopher will be so grateful their parents ordered these portraits! We urge you to do the same for your parents and children.

Please contact our portrait photography studio near Oakton, VA to schedule your multi-generational portraits. Your family will cherish their grandparent and grandchildren portraits.

When the lovely and talented Monifa (Mo) Hamilton needed a professional headshot, she reached out to our portrait photography studio near Vienna, VA & Bluemont, VA. After chatting with her, we knew just what to do!

The Importance of Professional Headshots:
A professional headshot represents and reflects you. Headshots are an investment in the image you want to portray professionally. Often, it’s your first opportunity to make a professional impression on others. It’s critical to get it right with high-quality, professional photography. Mo understood this which is why she hired us as experienced professionals.

• Professionals and corporate executives use headshots for many reasons including publications, business cards, websites, and even social media.
• Using a recent, high-quality portrait is important.
• Your headshot projects your professionalism.
• Treat them as you would any career investment.
• Professional makeup and styling can be invaluable for headshots.
• Don’t wait until you need a headshot or you might find yourself scrambling to schedule an appointment and get portraits back.

Using a Professional Photographer:
Always select a reputable photographer with experience in corporate or headshot photography. Yes, your friend who’s a terrific hobby photographer might be able to shoot your picture, but that doesn’t mean they should. A skilled photographer with the appropriate breadth of experience is best suited for professional portraits. Not only do they have the right set of skills and equipment, but they also have the best experience. They know just what to do and how to deliver a quality portrait appropriate for your specific needs.

When Mo called us to schedule her portraits, we took the time to discuss her needs and expectations. We were then able to choreograph her headshot portrait session accordingly. The results speak for themselves, but Mo later told us: “Both Mindy and Joriana were professional and coupled with their kindness and great spirit, the photo shoot exceeded my expectations.”

If you need professional headshots, contact our experienced portrait photography studio in Sterling, VA, near Vienna, VA. We would enjoy working with you to reflect your best professional image.

Why Should I Hire A Professional to Take My Headshot? | Northern VA Photographer

Why Should I Hire A Professional to Take My Headshot? | Northern VA Photographer

Have you put your best face forward in your professional headshot? January is Headshot Month and an excellent time to get a professional portrait taken! At our portrait photography studio in Sterling, VA, we know just how to help you convey professionalism in a high-quality headshot (also known as a branding or business photo).

If you are a professional of any kind, then chances are you will need a professional portrait at some point, if you haven’t already. Don’t underestimate the value of a quality headshot!

The Value of Headshots:

The Internet has changed how we all do business. It’s often the first place you do business when someone looks you up before hiring, calling, seeing, or interviewing you. Image matters. If the picture you have put out into cyberspace is poorly taken, under-exposed, or not conveying a smart, polished look, it might cost you.

So, what does your headshot say about you? As a professional photographer, we know what your professional headshot should say about you.

Here are four things it should convey:

* You are a polished professional.
* You invest in your career (because you’ve invested in quality photography).
* You will represent your company well.
* You take yourself and your career seriously.

Types of Headshot Sessions:

We offer different types of headshot sessions: Headshot One Session and Signature Personal Branding Session. Both will produce quality professional portraits, but the Signature Branding Session provides a more comprehensive session and service.

Headshot One: This is a straightforward headshot session. You will arrive in your chosen outfit, ready to be photographed. We will photograph you on one background, suitable for the outfit you’ve chosen to wear.

Signature Personal Branding Session: This is a highly-customized headshot portrait session and includes extra services. You will receive a portrait session prep package, including a simple questionnaire, in advance of your session. There will be a visual branding strategy session so we can understand your needs, clients, and goals for your headshot. We will assist you with styling for your shoot including the selection of wardrobe, location, and props. Multiple clothing changes are included, as well.

There’s no need to wait for January to arrive – We encourage you to call today to reserve your time slot! Our portrait photography studio near Vienna, VA is ready to help you represent your best self!
