Headshots are used in many ways.......for resumes, performing arts auditions, business and commercial websites, promotional materials, and also for personal use. When I'm working with a client on headshots, I first try to understand the purpose for their heashots, and get to know a little bit about their business and personality, so I can create images that suit their needs and showcase the amazing person they are.

During my shoot in downtown San Luis Obispo with actor Jeffrey Salsbury, I made a point of capturing many different moods and expressions, providing him with a range of images to choose from depending on the type of role he was auditioning for.
I also shoot a lot of headshots for dance and theater kids through my work with Coastal Performing Arts Foundation. These talented kids amaze me with their ability to "bring it" for the camera, each one showing off their unique personality that really comes through in the final images. And they're amazing on stage too!

Lisa Story, aka The Conscious Health Coach, was a very fun client to work with. Her business is all about helping women achieve their optimum health. So I wanted to create headshots that exuded her warmth and nurturing personality, key ingredients because of the personal nature of her business.
