Jordan really knows how to engage with the camera. Taken during a group session, Jordan took no time getting into the groove and giving me the killer look only a few shots in. No need to go further, we nailed it!
Brothers and sisters don’t always get along but here in this moment, Savannah and Cooper are showing how strong their bond is. This image is from a session I did for the whole family at the Marathon building.
I’ve mentioned On Track Studios in several of my posts since I often shoot sessions there. This image was shot right outside those studios and portrait here is of the lovely owner herself, Brenda. Not only is she a looker, but she is also a fantastic artist.

Ray and I had so much fun during his shoot that many of his photos show his eyes closed from laughing so hard. Luckily, we got some right below the “boiling point” like this image. Just looking at it you know you want to be ‘let in on the joke’. 🙂
I love the intensity that Emily brings to this “film noir” styled portrait. She has this unshakable connection to the camera here that begs the question ‘what’s on her mind’ but at the same time telling you not to ask.
On a side/technical note, that cigarette isn’t actually lit. The smoke and “cherry” were done in post. (Brenda would have killed me if we lit that up in her building)
Not every headshot I shoot has a white background. While I prefer white for the ability to blend well into web pages and printed materials, there’s nothing wrong with a darker background in a headshot. In this example Lisa’s smile makes the photo bright enough all on its own. 🙂
