Tattoos. Tats. Body art. Ink.
I’ve always loved tattoos. But they used to have a seriously bad reputation and were looked down on. Times have changed so much! When I was in my early twenties, tattoos were NOT considered professional. One did not dare have any tattoos that could be visible if you wanted to be a professional. Now, you can have full sleeves tats, and no one blinks an eye as you walk around a lawyer’s office, etc.
Cody booked a headshot session because she got a new haircut and a new job. She really wanted an update photo for LinkedIn. I’ve worked with her in the past for family photos and I’ve admired her ink. It is vibrant and fun–just like her. Since the session would be her solo, I asked if I could add some time to do some pictures of her ink after the standard headshot. I just really wanted the shots for my portfolio. She gave me an enthusiastic Yes!
We put in some music and had some fun trying different posing and angles to highlight her tats the best possible way. For me, music is a must during a shoot, especially if it is inside. I ask clients if they have a specific playlist they want to put on or a genre of music so I can turn on my Sonos speaker or the I Heart Radio channel. Music can help the client relax and boost their mood. Always important before having your photo taken. Warning: I will often dance around to the music. But I’ll try not to sing…to loud.
No matter what type of photo you want, traditional headshot, one that showcases your personality, or some of each let’s chat! We can find the perfect package for your session.
