Professional headshots Make an impression

You don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression. And on the web where all it takes is a click to lose someone’s attention, your profile photo is the key to welcoming people to stick around and get to know you better. A great headshot captures the glint in your eyes and the shape of your smile. It conveys your personality and hints at what makes you special. If you want to stand out from the crowd, your headshot is where to start.

Face Forward Headshots will help put your best face forward. The world will get to meet you on your terms: you at your very best. With a great headshot, every day is a good hair day and every smile is warm and approachable. And if eyes are truly the windows into someone’s soul, then your headshot will invite everyone to see how capable and trustworthy you are. So if you want to leave a lasting impression, start with a Face Forward Headshot.

Your Digital Identity

A headshot is more than just a pretty face. It can be seen online by hundreds or thousands of people per day. As more of our lives go online you might never even meet important people in your life face to face. For them, the headshot is who you are. Luckily, the headshot you’ll get from me will bring out your best.

Bring out your best

My clients are some of the most successful people in Connecticut, and they all share something in common: they don’t settle for less than the best. That’s why they chose the best headshot photographer between Boston & New York. But don’t take my word for it. Browse my portfolio & read the reviews. Then decide: Do you want the best?

ATTACH AN AUTHENTIC IMAGE TO YOUR PERSONAL BRAND

 
 
  Shoot for the stars   Whether you’re an actor, model, or other professional, you’ve got a personal brand to manage. And it all starts with first impressions. If you’re shooting for the stars, shouldn’t you look like one?

ACTOR Headshot

No matter whether you’re an actor, model, acting student, or opera singer you’ve got a personal brand to manage. And it all starts with first impressions. If you’re shooting for the stars, shouldn’t you look like one?

If you’re on stage, chances are there’s a Playbill or program with your face in it. You might even be on the cover. So, a theatrical headshot isn’t just about your comp card, it’s about what your audience takes home.

My headshot photography studio has the best lighting in the business, and I will be your acting coach as I pose you for the camera. To really bring out your best, I recommend the Legendary package which includes two looks so we can capture both a commercial headshot & dramatic headshot.

Business Headshot

“I don’t want anyone to notice how special I am” said no one ever. If you want a higher profile job or more clients you’ll need to stand out from the competition. A headshot that conveys approachability and confidence will show the world that you’re a success, and everyone loves a winner.

Whether you choose to smile or prefer a serious expression, your business headshot will exude quality and professionalism. Wherever you need to put a face to a name, you can use your professional headshot: your website, corporate directory, online listings, LinkedIn profile, business cards, executive bios, presentations, and more.

The bottom line is you can’t ever get to a close without a good open. Investing in a professional headshot ensures you’ll get the best return on first impressions.

  Raise your profile   “I don’t want anyone to notice how special I am” said no one ever. If you want a higher profile job or more clients you’ll need to stand out from the competition. A headshot that conveys approachability and confidence will show the world that you’re a success, and everyone loves a winner.
  Make a connection   If eyes are the portal to the soul, then a headshot is how others stare into them when you can’t be there in person. When people look at your professional headshot you will be looking back at them, leaving a lasting mental image of you at your very best.

Corporate Headshot

Corporate headshots aren’t just for the employees of large corporations. They’re also for doctor’s offices, law firms, real estate agencies, and any organization with a staff that cares about its image.

Corporate headshots are about branding and team cohesion. With a consistent quality & composition, you can be sure that corporate headshots will burnish your brand and help bind your team together.

I can take corporate headshots of your staff on location or at my studio. If I go on location to your office, I can also take environmental portraits of employees for your branding and group photos to help with team bonding.

The Choice OF politicians, Executives, and Who’s WHO in Connecticut

Cara was QUICK and funny and relaxed! I am normally not comfortable getting headshots, but she made me laugh and feel at ease. The amount of EXCELLENT shots to choose from was overwhelming in the best way! Thank you, Cara!
— Chion Wolf, producer at NPR
I used Cara to take photos for my political campaign, and she was great to work with. She gave clear, easy instructions, and the photos came out great. She did an especially nice job wrangling a difficult toddler and preschooler. Thanks Cara!
— Dallas Dodge, city councilor
Cara is great!! She made what could be a very self-conscious experience enjoyable. She really knows her stuff. She positions your head just so and somehow gets you to enjoy it. Her smile and naturally fun way of photographing made me feel comfortable. The end result is a head shot above and beyond my expectations. Thank you Cara !!!!
— Beth Kerrigan, city councilor
Cara, these pictures are amazing. You have quite a talent! Thank you. Thank you!
— Beth Bye, state senator

Group Headshot Packages

Ordering headshots for everyone in your organization can be a fantastic way to ensure consistency and quality in employee portraits. I have offered my services to law firms, healthcare providers, and real estate agencies to help them achieve a unified brand image and a complete staff directory. For corporate headshot accounts, having high quality images that are regularly updated is in fact a sensible safety & security precaution when they are printed on employee badges. For remote & virtual teams, headshots are an irreplaceable lifeline of connection since they may never actually meet face to face.

Group headshot packages are tailored to each customer so please contact me for a quote.
