Best of 2017: Business Headshots and Model Portfolios

Business headshot and Model portfolio photography London Ontario

To kick off the new year I thought I would put together a series of blogs showing some of my favourite photos I captured in 2017. Below you will see some of my favourite images captured in 2017 from business headshots and model portfolios. A bunch of the models were captured at the Shutterfest photography conference in St Louis. I have been honoured to capture a bunch of local men and women in business in London Ontario and I’m glad that many people consider having an updated headshot to look as professional online as they are in person. We have everything here from doctors to young racing car drivers, massage therapists to artists and everything in between, I’m lucky to be able to capture all of these great people!

1st Birthday Photography session- St Patricks Day

I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this little sweetie since she was just a couple of months old and I loved the idea that her mom had to make her first birthday session St Patrick’s Day themed as she was born on St Patrick’s Day. I’m currently running a ‘Luck of the Irish’ giveaway for a free Spring Mini Session on my Instagram page and would love for you to enter! I also wanted to blog these pics as I wanted to show that not all 1st birthday photography sessions are cake smashes, in this session we photographed her in the two outfits you see here but also another outfit with her family (one of the pics is towards the bottom of this post).

Best of 2016: Business Headshots and Model Portfolios

Headshot Photographer London Ontario

I’m happy to have been chosen as Headshot Photographer London Ontario by many businesses and models this year. Business Headshots are an important thing to have (and update) and I am glad to have had so many lovely people in business visit my studio this year, or photograph them on location at their business or a location that is more fitting with their brand. For business headshot sessions, I look at it as a process of elimination to find exactly what suits you. The colours you are wearing will determine the background and then from there I do a variety of shots of different angles of your face in a few different poses. These images can be used in social media, on your website and promotional material such as business cards. I really think it is so important to be able to put a face to a name and making sure that the image that is representing you is professional is very important, plus it is a business expense! Clara and I updated our headshots this year and some can be seen on our About Us page, and here in a facebook post where with just a little editing they were made more festive 🙂

In January I will be having another Headshot mini session date where you get a 15 min session which allows for 1 background, 1 quick change of clothes and 3 edited images of your choice for $60+hst, if you are interested let me know and we can work out a date.

I also had the pleasure of getting creative and capturing a bunch of models this year. Model portfolios are quite different to business headshots in that they are more often on location, so we work with the differing location backgrounds and wardrobe to get variety in the shots.

Best of 2016: Mini Sessions

Mini Session Photographer London Ontario

To get back into the swing of things after Christmas I thought I would start my series of blogs showing some of my favourite photos I captured in 2016.


2016 was a busy mini session photography year for me! The one thing I especially love about the mini sessions is regularly getting to see families faces as they update their photos on their walls and on their profile pictures. In the images below you will see examples of the mini session days with the themes- Valentine’s Day, Easter, Spring (both outside with the magnolia trees and inside from when we had freak late May snow), superheros and princesses, Thanksgiving/Fall/Halloween, Christmas (tree farm and in studio) as well as a few pet photography specific days and I also did business headshot mini sessions but those photographs will be shown in a few days when I post the blog for those portraits. For 2017 I plan on doing all of these mentioned in the below flyer for my mini session pass, the best value way of doing mini sessions with me throughout the year and only on sale until Jan 1st.

Awesome Mondays #29

Just a quick one today as I’m working hard on getting the best of 2013 blogs wrapped up to post this week! I’m running so behind but at least it will be just in time for the London Winter Bridal Show I will be at this weekend Sat 18th/Sun 19th at the London Convention centre- win tickets on my Facebook Page!

The following shots were taken at The Alzheimer Outreach centre, with Hair by Mallory and Makeup by Michelle.
We chatted about family and how important it is to take pride in your appearance. This lovely lady also told me that she really likes going to the Alzheimer Outreach centre.



When asked about wisdom, this lovely lady told me that you have to work with what you’ve got. I think she meant appearance-wise but I think very true in other circumstances also!
