How to Create a Natural Business Headshot

Wondering how to look good AND relaxed in your corporate business portrait?

With a candid photo smiling with a friendly expression that conveys a natural and open personality, like this one. I photographed this amazing woman in her office. I used natural window light from her north east facing large window. She is positioned near the edge of the couch in a flattering lean. I directed her to relax her arms away from her body just a bit, keeping her face toward the window light. For there it was all about engaging in a light conversation that prompted some laughter.


While the image she has selected for her main headshot is a more structured head and shoulders image of her looking straight into the camera, this alternate image is perfect for supplementary marketing and press when she needs to show off her dynamic personality a bit more.
