Need a new headshot?  Well if it has been more than a couple of years since you have updated your on line persona, then it is probably past time!

We enjoy doing business branding and corporate headshot photography here, so if you are in need or would like a consult to go over your options, by all means give us a call.

This particular session was to be a bit more of a regular headshot as opposed to a business branding type session like we did here for Jennifer.  My client does a lot of speaking engagements on important topics so it was important for him to have a variety of polished looks for his website, business card and marketing materials.  I had him bring in a few outfit choices and we did some mix and match from there to get several nice looks.

We also opted for a darker grey backdrop, so as the business logos and colors may change, the grey will tend to stand the test of time color wise and easily match or blend with new color schemes.  Most of this will all be discussed in your initial consultation so that we can make sure you get the headshot you want and that is cohesive with your overall look.  So here are a few from Tom’s session, I hope you enjoy them.

If you have questions about the corporate headshot process or would like to book your own session, feel free to reach out to us at 951-534-7457 or fill out the contact form on our website at www.mypurephotos.com 

We look forward to hearing from you! corporate headshot three quarter poseBusiness PhotographyClose up headshot casualbusiness headshotFull Length Business Portrait

Huntington Harbor Yacht  Club

When you go through all the effort and hard work to plan a corporate event, don’t forget to include a professional photographer.  So much goes into planning an exciting evening for your coworkers or corporate partners that it would be a shame not to have that gala event documented in photographs.  Many times this is the once a year that corporate partners and staff get together, so that is definitely something worth documenting!

This particular mixer at Huntington Harbor Yacht Club was a charity mixer and a celebration of some much anticipated improvements to the harbor.  Many residents had been looking forward to this for quite some time, and it was all systems go!  Everyone got to spend time with their neighbors, enjoy a charity auction and have a few cocktails!

I hope you enjoy a few of the images we took from from the day, and if you are in need of an event or corporate photographer, feel free to give us a call!  We can be reached at 951-534-7457 or via the contact form on our website at www.mypurephotos.com!  Best,  Jillian

This dog is more than just a pet, he is absolutely part of the family.  So when puppy Dagger came home and was destined for the dog show ring, it was important to his mom to keep a record of his growth and changes.  She set him up for a “watch me grow” series and we get to photograph this gorgeous guy every 3 months.  Its amazing how fast and how big he has gotten in all that time.  He is pictured here just at 7 months old and he already looks like a full grown dog, and I know he has plenty of growing yet to do!!

So for our last session we just took him for a romp outside and did more of a candid play session.  For this photography session, since he is turning into such a stunning boy, we wanted something a little more moody and classic looking.  So we opted for a moody black on black and I think we got some great images of this beautiful boy.  Plus I got lots of kisses, and maybe just a little slobber, but it was totally worth it.

If you would like information on having your own pet photographed by all means give us a call at 951-534-7457, or drop by our website at www.mypurephotos.com and drop us a note in the contact section!Great dane dressed as batmanGreat Dane Photography in Black and White

As a photographer, intimate weddings are some of my all time favorites and unfortunately I am a little late to the game with this blog post!  But this was one of my cutest and sweetest couples last year.  This was a second wedding for both and they were so relaxed and happy, that they just let the day flow and had a bunch of fun with family and friends.  Both of these families coming together was just the way a wedding should be.  Everyone lent a hand for this gorgeous DIY wedding, from rushing around to set up tables and chairs, to a gorgeous hand made cake and cupcakes.

The bride looked amazing with her daughters by her side, all bridesmaids dressed in beautiful red dresses to just complete the fall color scheme.  Everything went of without a hitch and I could not be happier for these two.  Congrats you two, all your hard work, love and devotion has absolutely paid off!  Wedding Portrait

Maternity photography is an excellent way to celebrate your new baby.  I know that pregnancy can be an interesting time for a woman, some really love it, and some just don’t!  But as a photographer I love the look and happiness of a pregnant woman.  There’s just so much love and excitement on the way and its truly just a magical time.

For this particular session, my mom to be really wanted all of her family with her.  Some just like to take a break from it all and do a solo session and others, like this mom, like to pull everyone together and document the occasion as a family.  So when you do the whole family session like this with a toddler, just know that everything is going to take a little bit longer.  Because… you know… toddler.  He was actually really great for this photography session, but I asked that we have grandma on deck so we could go out for our couples and solo shots and it ended up working out perfectly!

So this shoot starts out basically like every other shoot where we discuss what you are hoping to get out of the session, the look you are hoping for and the appropriate wardrobe for your choices.  We like to start booking these sessions right around 7 months or so, but it really depends on your body type and how you are showing.  Some women are really showing at 7, and some just barely are until 8 and 9 months.  So the best thing to do is reach out to us at around 7 months and we can play it by ear as far as the timing goes.  If you have questions about the process you can absolutely give us a call at 951-534-7457 or swing by our website at www.mypurephotos.com

With all that being said, we hope you enjoy the final results of our session!  All the best,  Jillian

Your phone selfie is not helping your business….

Whew….  sorry to be so blunt about it your headshot, but it’s true.  It’s your business, its your baby.  The thing you spend all day and night at trying to make successful, missing nights out with friends, stressing over which insurance is best and what accounting program to use.  So when you put your business out into the public eye, on your Facebook business page, on your LinkedIn, your Instagram for all the world to see, why do you think a crummy cell phone photo is ok?    I see professional people doing this all the time.  You may decide to hire an accountant for your business, so as you peruse through all the local business options, are you going to pick the one showing that person in a blurry selfie with a group of friends drinking at the race track?  Probably not.  Accounting is serious business, and you will more than likely choose the professional who went “professional” all the way.  Their image and their company is important, they know it, and they want you to know it too.

So when you think corporate headshots or business branding… do you immediately think grey background and power tie?  Well just stop it.  A true headshot really portrays who you are and what you do.   For example, Jennifer here makes amazing juices and promotes a raw vegan lifestyle.  She is a super healthy, fun loving and very sweet “wants to get to know you” kind of person.  Putting her in a business suit on a grey background makes no sense for style and business brand.  Thats not who she is, that is not what her business image is about.  So just because you ditch the “fun” selfie, doesn’t mean this isn’t all about your business, your personality and that this isn’t personal.

A branded headshot session is going to take an hour-ish, and will be relevant for quite some time.  So it is a small investment in money and time that will really have a nice impact on your business’ image overall.

If you have questions about the process or would like to set an appt for your own session, by all means give us a call!  You can call direct at 951-534-7457 or reach out through our website at www.mypurephotos.com   All the best,  Jillian
