Facilitator, Coach and Choreographer Shrooti Singh – Philadelphia Headshot Photography by Laura Eaton

Headshot photography is always fun for me, but Shrooti was a true joy to work with!  She needed to update her headshot to compliment the many facets of her life and business…  We met at my Old City Philadelphia location to shoot both in-studio and outdoors. While she prepared for our photo shoot with the always amazing makeup artist Aleksandra Ambrozy, we got a chance to get to know each other and I was fascinated with her coaching work and where her travels have taken her!

Philadelphia Headshot Photography session with Damika Barr – by Laura Eaton, Headshot Expert

Damika contacted me to update her professional headshot.  She expressed right away that she knew ceiling lights and her husband holding the camera wouldn’t cut it – I love it when clients understand the importance and impact of a professional image!  Hiring an expert is the key to achieving the results you need to stand out.

We shot both inside my studio and environmentally around Old City.  We were able to capture a variety of looks that Damika can use on her profiles for LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.  Thank you so much Damika for trusting me with your professional image!

Philadelphia Headshot session with fitness instructor Karyn Pless

Karyn and I had THE most enjoyable headshot session at the Old City Philadelphia studio the other day.  It was very warm out, so we started in-studio to avoid any makeup meltdown (not that we had to worry, Bella Angel did a phenomenal job as always!), but then ventured out to capture some outdoor variety.

Every single person we passed offered a smile or commented on how gorgeous Karyn looked – one person even asked “Hey, is that Julia Roberts?”  I guess this great weather brings out the best in everyone!

Karyn is opening up a studio with Barre3.  I cannot wait to see her new space in Rosemont, and maybe even book a session (miracles do happen!).  Karyn was so much fun to work with, even my couch-potato self might be persuaded to come work out!


And thanks once again to the fabulous Neen James for the referral!

Think any image will do? Your headshot is more important now than ever…

I see so many LinkedIn and Facebook profiles that feature a profile image that so poorly represents the great person I know they are.  If you are simply online for the fun of it, then a fuzzy iPhone photo or a poorly lit image of you at a party is fine (don’t even get me started on “selfies“).  If you are an entrepreneur, seeking a job or looking to promote yourself in any way through social media, that profile picture matters more now than ever before.

I feel like I’ve been shouting from the rooftops about how important it is have a professional image, and now there is science to back this up….

Headshot photography matters, get ahead with a professional image

Professional images deliver professional results.  Period.

Recruiters and decision makers who view your resume or profile spend the majority of their time looking at your image.  From the diagram of eye-tracking above, you can see that the image is where they start and finish.  Making a great first impression can be the difference between getting a call, or getting passed over….

Previous clients of mine have had their headshots take them further in their careers, and even into directions they weren’t expecting.  If you can’t be bothered to present a professional image to the world, why should anyone pay attention to you?  Headshots open doors, create opportunities and give you the confidence to share your profile & website, knowing that you are making a great first impression.
