Professional San Diego Headshot Photography
Your business headshots speak volumes – trust a San Diego headshot photographer with capturing your portraits.
Whether it’s corporate headshots on an about page, social media profile, or professional LinkedIn photo – your presence (or lack thereof) could have a huge impact on attracting the right people.
Don’t resort to using outdated business headshots from three hairstyles ago or make-shifting a headshot with portrait mode on your smartphone – as one of San Diego’s trusted studios for business portraits, let us capture you in a modern, classic way.
Our studio understands that professional headshots make a difference in driving your career and your San Diego business forward, because we’ve helped so many of our clients achieve their goals already. Our priority is to make sure your entire experience with us is streamlined, personal, and enjoyable.
Make your first impression count with our Signature Business Headshots – see our options below!
We’ll photograph you for up to 1 hour in our incredible local studio in San Diego, creating between 5 to 7 unique looks. We’ll start with a standard backdrop and then utilize the different environments around our dynamic studio space so you’ll walk away with a wide variety of new images. In-studio session pricing begins at $200.
Want our headshot photographer to come to your San Diego business? On-location sessions are perfect for capturing you in your natural environment or place of business (a beautiful home for a high-end real estate agent, for example). On-location session pricing begins at $300.
Don’t settle for a mismatched collection of headshots for your corporate office. If your website’s about page displays outdated headshots with various backdrops and editing styles, it’s time to unify your online look. Bring your team to our studio, or we will come to your office to make the process even easier!
Our Headshot Services
We are more than just a headshot photographer team – we collaborate with you on all aspects of your session to plan a unique look tailored to you. See our professional business headshot services below:
In-Studio or On-Site
Come to our local photography studio for your San Diego headshots. Or, we’ll come on-site to capture you. Whether you’re in La Jolla or La Mesa, we’ll capture you in your environment.
On-Site Image Review
Have you ever just crossed your fingers that your corporate headshot turned out? You won’t need to do that with our headshot photographer– we will review your images together immediately after the headshot photography session to be sure you adore them (and we’ll keep shooting if you don’t!).
Every headshot you select will receive professional retouching by our in-house editing team, so you’ll always look your best. (See our post-production examples below!)
Your first headshot photo is included with your session, and you only purchase what you need beyond that to capture a variety of looks for your online portfolio.
Hair & Makeup Available
We highly recommend all of our headshot clients work with our onsite makeup artist, who will meet you for your makeup appointment prior to your session. Having professional makeup done for your San Diego headshots makes a huge difference in the way you look and feel.
High Volume Headshots
Time for the whole San Diego business office to get matching headshots? We offer bulk rates for groups of 20 or more. We prioritize making the experience streamlined, personal, and enjoyable for everyone.
Our post-production crew is a bunch of magicians – at least we think so! Check out before and afters below of a few San Diego headshots to see what’s possible with post-production.
Level One Retouching
With our basic headshot retouching, we'll complete light and natural retouching including gentle wrinkle smoothing, flyaway hair removal, and blemish softening. (Included with all final headshot selections.)
Level Two Retouching
If you need something more in-depth for your portraits such as braces removal, opening closed eyes, head swaps, or eyeglass glare removal, this falls under our Level Two Retouching for $20/image.
We can remove the subject from the photo (or create a fully blown out white background) for just $20/image. Just let us know what you need!
For a different color backdrop (or a new setting altogether), inquire with us for a backdrop replacement (Pricing is $30/image).
Our Proven Process
Curious about what it’s like to work with us for your Professional Headshots in San Diego? Below is our process that our headshot photographer uses with clients to ensure your experience is seamless (and enjoyable!).
1. Create a Game Plan
We’ll get on the phone together to discuss your specific professional headshot needs. At your session, we’ll sit down to map out your shoot and select the best outfits.
2. Capture Amazing Images

3. Curate Together
After your session is complete, we’ll make your photo selections together. If we need to keep shooting to make any adjustments to the images, we’ll do that. By the end of the photography session, you’ll walk away knowing you adore your new images!
4. Complete Post-Production
Our in-house editing team will put the finishing touches on your headshot images so they look amazing. Within a week (or less) of your session, your final high-resolution images will be posted in an online gallery.

Our Incredible Clients
We have been fortunate to work with an incredible group of clients in San Diego. Read their reviews below about their experience of working with us for their professional headshots.
“I’ve used Bauman Photographers several times since I started my law firm, and I’ve consistently been thrilled with interacting with their team. I constantly get people asking me where I got my headshots, website pictures, and social media photos, and I am always happy to send everyone who asks to Bauman! They are absolutely the best professional photos I’ve ever had taken.”
“As a practicing lawyer, it is critical that my true personality is captured in every professional photo as I build my brand and Bauman Photographers were able to capture that exactly. The shoot was effortless and very professional. I highly recommend them.”
“My session was super interactive – I was given perfect direction but also super encouraged to be me in front of the camera without judgment. I never felt rushed. I expected to like one or two photos, but not only were there so many photos to choose from, there were so many that I liked! To this day, I’ve used my professional headshot in so many places: it’s a classic shot I’ve been able to use over and over again!”
Pride Law Firm
The team at the Pride Law Firm fiercely protects their clients as they fight for justice, so this law team didn’t want your run-of-the-mill headshot session – they wanted to look fierce and fabulous. Their images exude professionalism and class – take a look at how we’ve photographed their team over the years.
Erin Youngren is a photographer, educator, and podcast host, and with the launch of her new online course for photographers, she was in need of a new portfolio of eye-catching images for her marketing materials. Her new professional headshots needed to not only capture her personality, but captivate her audience.
“I’ve worked with the Bauman Photographers team numerous times and I am always so very pleased with the results! Their studio is incredibly spacious, filled with top-notch equipment, and numerous different styled rooms to shoot in. They have an extensive team to make sure your photos always turn out the best. Truly the most professional team I have come across.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you match the headshots already on our website?
Of course! If you need to match a certain headshot style, please send over an example of the look we should be matching. In most cases, we should be able to replicate a look that has already been created on your website.
What color backdrops do you offer?
We use a standard grey or white backdrop and offer many other colors in our San Diego headshots studio. Let us know where you’ll be using your images, and we may be able to offer a recommendation on what is best.
Can we do business headshots at our company office?
Absolutely! Our corporate clients love the convenience that On-Location Headshots offer. From real estate offices to law firms, we’ll come to you and take portraits of you in your own environment, or we can bring along our standard grey or white backdrop.
Can I choose multiple locations for my photography shoot?
Our headshot shoot includes one location (and the immediate surrounding area). If you want to spend time in more than one location, we recommend our Branding Sessions!
Branding Sessions offer more variety for a fuller portfolio, especially if you need to fill out your website.
Do you travel?
We do! Since our headshots business is based in San Diego, we have an additional $150 Travel Fee for photography locations in Orange County or Los Angeles.
