This was no cookie cutter headshot session. The sense of creativity and community is strong at Stylists at North, and we wanted the photos to reflect that, while also looking fresh, fashion-conscious, and editorial. I love how everyone was allowed to express their own sense of individuality, but the photos overall still feel cohesive.
Each person assembled their own floral bouquet, wore whatever made them feel like their best selves, and I photographed the images with a variety of poses and crops. We chose a blue background to communicate clarity and freshness, and to go with the branding colors on their newly updated website.
I wanted the group photo to be really special, not just the traditional lineup. Luckily, the SAN space has a staircase that we could utilize, plus a variety of chairs and stools to place folks on. I was in my happy place arranging everyone so we had visually interesting variety and symmetry – notice the pops of orange and greens echoed throughout.
Behind the Scenes
To light the headshots, we used two feathered softlighters (large and medium), both camera right, for soft sculpted light, a reflector camera left to fill in shadows, and a hair light.
