Blending Branding & Creative Headshot Photography
Shelby and Jasmine seek to make learning how to invest in the secondary mortgage market fun through their podcast, the Naked Notes Podcast. With a niche take, the two of them knew that they needed branding images and fun headshots that match their message and make them stand out from the crowd– as well as introduce Shelby as the official co-host. Wanting a professional yet fun approach, Jasmine & Shelby reached out to Bauman Photographers to set up a session for them where they would be able to get the creative headshot photography– and look– they needed.
Creating Diverse Content
We started off discussions with Shelby & Jasmine, asking them what they were looking for in their headshots; it was from these conversations that we were able to build them a plan for their session, working in branding shots & creative headshot photography throughout our studio. The day of, we began the session in our studio where we used various backdrops & our cyclorama walls, and took both individual & group headshots.
While we got fun headshot photography in the studio, we also moved throughout our studio to create a variety of content that had different approaches & feels so they would have plenty of content to use on social media like Instagram and as hero images on their website or interviews. One area that both we– and Shelby & Jasmine– loved was our podcast space. By photographing the two of them there, we were able to create a series of fun branding images that showed them in the moment.
Perfecting their Vision
After the session, Shelby & Jasmine picked out their five initial selections that would receive basic retouching. We worked with them to retouch these images, perfecting them for any online uses. With our basic level one retouching, we flattened stray hairs and removed wrinkles from their shirts to make sure they looked their best. Later on, Shelby & Jasmine chose to purchase their full gallery; an add-on that gave them access to all of the photos that they had originally chosen from.
We feel honored that the intelligent & hardworking Naked Notes Podcast team chose to work with us, and thrilled that we were able to customize a session that matches their vision!
