Portland Headshot Photographer

I provide natural light portrait and headshot photography that highlights the natural beauty of Portland and the Pacific Northwest. I work closely with small business owners, doctors and medical providers, authors, therapists, and corporate office teams to create headshots and portraits that are natural, candid, and full of color. My photos help my clients represent themselves in a professional, flattering, and genuine way. My relaxed, candid style has produced images that have been used on social media, nonprofit websites, book covers, and more.

I know that while some people love the camera, others can use a little more support, which is why I approach sessions with a sense of fun and an easy going, welcoming presence. A positive “on set” attitude helps me create images that are fresh, colorful, and full of light.

Natural Light Corporate Headshots

More and more individuals and businesses alike are embracing the natural look and feel of on-location headshots. Stepping outside and using natural light and real world backgrounds is a great way to capture portraits that feel candid and genuine. While studio portraits have their use not everyone feels at ease in an artificial setup with bright lights. My sessions take place at a Portland location of your choice be it a nearby park or even just outside your office. We’ll create fun, authentic looking images that feel fresh, contemporary, and not stuffy.

My Approach

Natural light portrait and headshot sessions help me create photos with visual interest that level up from a basic studio shoot.

Headshot Tips and Tricks

Don’t be afraid to practice

Being in front of a camera can sometimes be an awkward thing but knowing what facial expressions you like and how to achieve them can give you an added confidence boost. Don’t be embarrassed to try them out in front of a mirror before your shoot. Get silly, no one’s watching!

SHOW ME your “best” side

Whether it’s true or not we all feel like we have that one side that’s just better so let’s embrace it. I love when clients tell me about things they like or don’t like in photos or things that they feel a little self conscious about. Knowing those details helps me to create photos that you’re going to love.

Be Yourself

I always encourage folks to be themselves and to think of their headshots or portraits as a genuine representation of themselves. Wear what you normally would to work or a business casual event. If you regularly wear makeup don’t feel like you need to apply more than normal for it show up in photos.
