Typical corporate headshots are usually taken quickly, so, more often than not, they result in fake, uninspiring smiles. To get shots with relaxed, natural expressions, I take the time to get to know my clients. When people are calm, they tend to give you who they really are. Liz and Darren of Digienable are the perfect example. This vivacious couple contacted me when they needed to update their website images. The brief: To provide a set of engaging photographs demonstrating that they are approachable and friendly experts. Casual, but professional and knowledgeable was also an important requirement. 

The images will be used on socials and email signatures too. Liz's headshot will also be used for conference websites she speaks at. It's so important I understand all these details and requirements, so I can plan the photoshoot, ensuring it runs as smoothly as possible and my clients get the images they desire.

In addition I also give the option for image crops, so that they can be used on numerous platforms, like this one below, which I extended. It could include a logo or wording (which can be changed as often as required) and used as a banner on a website.

Here's what Liz and Darren said about their photoshoot experience:

"As professional speakers and trainers, we’re no strangers to being captured on camera, and it becomes easy to spot when someone knows what they’re doing.
Alison has recently supported us with both “in-situ” speaking engagement photos, as well as a full session in her purpose built studio to update our head-shots and team photos.
As well as being a pleasure to work with, we were both inspired with how much thought and creativity Alison injects into the process. From pre-shoot questionnaires, through to hair and make-up support, there isn’t an aspect of the shoot Alison didn’t have covered.
The “shoot prep” was top notch, with Alison taking the time to understand our specific needs, suggesting ways of working and styles that would visually portray the vibe and style of our business.
We’re so happy with the results and believe she successfully captured the essence of us as individuals with personality, and clearly showing our balance of being fun and approachable yet professional.
The photos look modern, eye-catching and stylish, again a testament to Alison’s skill and professionalism. We have already recommended Alison to others, and will carry on doing so. 100% would recommend!"
