The space

The photoshoot space was located at Woodin Creek Village Apartments in their community room in Woodinville, WA. The networking portion was located in the Rocky Pond Winery, I didn't attend that part, I was busy with taking photos. Liz would bring a small group of ladies up to the space for photos, then they could go back down to the winery.

The great thing about this space, is we had a variety of looks we could go for.

There was a Livingroom, a café table, kitchen and chair window looks we could do. To the best of my ability I tried to do a very quick intake to get a better idea of what would work best for their brand and match it accordingly.

The attending Ladies

Below is one of the images that each lady picked from their proofing galleries. I also attached a little bio of what each one does and linked to their website or social media page. Please do note two of the awesome shoes the ladies were wearing, a full body photo was needed, we've got to show off killer shoe selection!

How do I handle these headshot events?

I or in this case (since this one was a partnership) Liz, sent out an email to all the ladies who had purchased a ticket of how to prep for the session. I recommended wearing branding colors or neutral colors that support branding colors. I also gave a few tips of possible props to bring with. Laptop, books, and journals are a few simple items to grab and interact with.

My goal was to take photos for around 5-7 minutes of each person. I did have each lady fill out a little paper with a few questions for me to read over and quickly plan. I do show the back of the camera to each woman to make sure we've got at least 2 photos they are happy with.

After the shoot I upload photos with basic edits into individual galleries. I'll send each woman an email with their gallery link and instructions on how to select at least their 2 photos with options to purchase more should they love and want to use more.

Once the images are selected, I finish the edits to the selected images as they came in and then send the final images.
