A great headshot is the workhorse of the photography world. It has to communicate your trustworthiness, competence, professionalism, and success. An effective headshot needs to reflect you at your best, but should not be too glamorous. You want to look like you’re about to say “Hi, I’m pleased to meet you.”
Whether you come to my studio as an individual, or are scheduling a multi-day headshot session for your business, we’ll talk about the background of your shoot and your objectives. I’ve developed several short videos on how to prepare for your headshot that will help you or your employees feel more confident and relaxed.
In 2021 I photographed more than 200 headshots! From “headshot happy hour” events to day-long sessions, from quick, basic studio photos to extended professional branding sessions. Sometimes we get the perfect picture in just a few takes. Other times we experiment with different poses, expressions and wardrobe, until we get it right.
My clients often comment, “This session was fun! It wasn’t at all like what I expected. I really didn’t expect such great images of myself.”

"A lot of photographers can take a good picture - Vickie's talent is in how she makes you feel when she is taking your picture. She makes you laugh, has infinite abilities to put you at ease, and she takes a picture that actually looks like you - and not a stiff cardboard cutout of you. Prior to her career as a photographer, Vickie was a well respected marketing professional in Baltimore. That experience is paramount to her understanding what makes a good headshot vs. what makes a good marketing photo, or portrait shot. She is simply the best."
