Our favorite shots of 2020

“What a year, right?” is not an original thing to say this week. The year 2020 has been a heck of a lousy ride for a lot of us, and our studio is no exception. BUT. Even though we had to close as a “non-essential business” for 74 days in the Spring, and bookings have […]

Personal branding photography: SO hot right now

You may have heard the phrase, “personal branding photography” whispered between marketers, publicists, or influencers lately.  Or maybe you’ve seen photos on Instagram or company websites and thought, “how do they get so many great, magazine-worthy shots for their social media pages?  That was so NOT taken with an iPhone.”  Welcome to the newest photography […]

Our favorite shots of 2018

Happy New Year!  2018 was a great year for Organic Headshots– thank you to all of our amazing clients over the years, who continue to choose us as their photography studio.  We’re so honored to photograph everyone who comes through our doors and happy to keep shooting up a photo storm in 2019!

Make your bad headshot better

There’s nothing that keeps a person away from a photo studio better than a past photo that didn’t turn out so well.  Such was the case with our friend, Jon.  His partner was a past client of ours for his (dare we say awesome) professional headshots, and every month like clockwork they would have some […]

Swipe Right – How to nail the online dating profile photo

At Organic Headshots, we’re not all business. Sure—we are all about having that polished, professional photo for your company’s website or your LinkedIn profile. But there’s also a time and a place for something a little more, well, personal. We often have clients come in and ask for two different looks—one LinkedIn photo and one […]

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays from Michelle, Jeff, Megg and Bowie at Organic Headshots!  As we near the end of our 11th year in business, Organic Headshots has a lot to be thankful for.  We’ve grown in so many ways: welcoming an amazing additional photographer to our ranks, adding Saturday appointments for studio headshots, and moving into a […]

A taste of old Hollywood

I love headshots.  And I take a heck of a lot of them throughout the week.  So last weekend was a fun break from headshots to stretch my creative legs and put together a stylized photo shoot… I feel like I shouldn’t use the work “break” since it was actually a lot of work to get […]

Looks that change daily

Picking out clothing for your headshot can fun and even easy, but how do you pick out your beard?  I get a lot of requests for advice on glasses and beards- two things that can be transient on someone’s face.  Sometimes you wear glasses, sometimes you don’t.  Sometimes you’ve got some facial hair going on, […]

A haiku to hair

Today I wrote a haiku to hair: Hair, you are so strange one day you look so lovely the next, oh so lame. When preparing for a headshot portrait session a lot of us make a laundry list of all the things we hope look okay. We hope our shirt isn’t wrinkled or that we […]

Can’t decide what you look like?

Most people are not like my dad, who has had the same haircut since the late 1950’s*. We like to change our look here and there and even on a daily basis… one day we’ve got a beard, the next day it’s a mustache. The day after that it has vanished to mustache heaven. Although […]
