The Importance of Having Options
The one thing that gives people a lot of anxiety about having their picture taken is posing. The awkwardness of being in front of the camera will often keep people from coming in to have their photos done.
Here at Alimond Studio we understand how you feel. Our studio team have all been in your shoes whether we are taking pictures for our studio business cards, marketing materials or even video. I can honestly say that none of us always feels 100% confident behind the camera. It has helped each one of us though, because we can better relate to how our client is feeling during their photo session.
When it comes to posing, it may feel awkward at times, but we will make sure you are laughing or smiling through it all! You may even doubt that you're "doing it right", but we are here to take you through every step of the posing process so you will feel comfortable and at ease.
So what kind of poses can you expect? That depends on a few things. What kind of look are you hoping to achieve? Business or casual? What profession are you in? Will it be a headshot for a business card, Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, letterhead, an email signature? Or will you need a full body image on a pure white background for other purposes where you can add extra elements or text to your photo? Those are just a few of the many ideas you have to consider when getting your photos done.
Oftentimes you will need images for many uses that you may not even realize until days or even weeks following your session. Our job at Alimond Studio is to make sure you have a variety of options to choose from. We alternate poses, change background colors, lighting, and sometimes go outside for more of an environmental feel.
Our clients are wonderful about giving us the creative freedom to photograph them in many different ways. Oftentimes it's the one pose or background they didn't expect, that they end up loving the most!

See...we can be awkward too..
