Creative Headshots for Artist and Professionals:

Marie is a local artist who wanted something unique and visually interesting for her profile picture. She had such killer style we thought it was a great choice to show her in a 3/4 format so we could get her unique rings in the shot as an accent, all the while capturing her graphic silhouette.
What we love about this pose is it shows the hands clearly (which believe it or not—psychologically comes off as trustworthy). Moreover it subtly focuses the attention on her face while still feeling natural. In a portrait, you want to make sure the attention is on the subjects face first (whether the client likes it or not). It is a fact that humans love looking at other peoples faces, and we always keep this in mind during our portrait sessions.
