Professional headshots improve the way the public perceives you and your business
By IDA Client Elaine Lowry, Sapphire Studio
Hi. My name is Elaine Lowry and I am Sapphire Studio’s owner and photographer. We are Portland-based and we shoot both on location and in the studio.
I have been taking photos since I was 13 years old and I have always had a good eye for presenting people at their best. Great light and patience can go a long way when taking a photo and I always encourage the people around me to keep on shooting and pay attention to the available light.
When it comes to a professional portrait however, it is important to never underestimate the value and importance of presenting yourself and your business in a professional light. This includes everything your business produces: everyone agrees a logo is very important, but equally important is your photographic image. A professional portrait can set you apart from another business. It shows that you care about how you look and how you present yourself to others. If you present yourself professionally, you will be treated as a professional; it’s that simple. A professional portrait shows that you take yourself and your business seriously – something many people endeavoring to run their own business often forget. The best portraits show you and your staff members in attitudes and in environments that perfectly show who you are, in the way you want to be portrayed on your website and marketing materials.
Sapphire Studio has made our mark shooting families at every stage of life, and we apply to our headshots the same patience it takes to get a perfect family portrait. We help you feel relaxed, comfortable, and confident. Clients often tell us that our professional portrait is the best photograph they have ever seen of themselves.
Right now, all who support or are involved with Mercy Corps can have a professional portrait session with Sapphire Studio for $140, a 20% discount off of the usual headshot session price of $175.
