Headshots and Business Photo Sessions Houston Photographer

Do you have an office, brick-and-mortar store, or other physical location connected to your business? When you’re thinking about where to do your business photo session, this may be the first thing that springs to mind. Shooting on location can be a wonderful way to show off your business space, particularly if your clients visit you in person, or if you’re trying to drive more traffic to your door. Your studio can also be the perfect place to shoot if you’re an artist, photographer, or designer. People love taking a peek at the “natural habitat” of a business.


Maybe your business space is still in the works–or you run an online business. You can take advantage of my professional studio (and props) to create a business photo session that helps you send the right message to clients. The studio can also be a great spot for traditional headshots and product shoots.


An outdoor business photo shoot can be a great choice for artists, musicians, or others in creative professions. They can also be a great choice if you’re feeling nervous about being in front of the camera! Outdoor photos can feel very soothing and natural, and the warm light (I like to do sessions near sunrise or sunset for the best light) is always flattering. Shooting outdoors can also be a fun choice if you’re looking for something less traditional. For example, headshots are usually done in the studio–so why not mix things up and grab people’s attention by doing yours outside?

Homes are an especially good fit for lifestyle business and branding sessions. Social media influencers and bloggers may find an at-home lifestyle photo shoot the perfect way to give followers a behind-the-scenes peek of real life, with professional, eye-catching photos that highlight your unique tastes and interests. And like the outdoors, doing a home session can help you feel more at ease in front of the camera. Shooting in a beautifully staged home can also be a great option for folks in real estate. What better way to let clients know the kind of home you can get them into than by showing them?

Where to do your business photo session is a big decision, but I’m here to help you figure it out! If you’re still not sure which type of shoot is right for you, don’t worry.
