We’ll help you and your business leave the right impression.


Have a profile headshot that you LOVE to use!

PERSONAL BRANDING… a hot topic in this day and age. We understand it can be daunting, but the reality is, the way you are perceived by others plays a role in your success story. Even if your professional role isn’t directly facing consumers, your brand is a part of how others see you.  And the way you look to those in your office and in your field will influence if you seem like someone moving up, or staying still. Having a strong personal brand starts with a powerful headshot. Let us help you make a personal brand you are proud of!

Our experienced business headshot photographers in Sacramento, San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco will provide you with the best headshots around. We understand lighting, tone, and backdrops so that you look contemporary, powerful, and dynamic.

    Prepare for your shoot arrow-down

    1. We recommend you look at images that appeal to you both online and in our portfolio to get some fresh ideas on what to wear for your shoot. Then, find a wardrobe that makes you feel great. You might already have your perfect combination hidden in your closet, or you might need to go shopping.
    2. For hair, we don’t recommend getting a haircut right before the shoot because a few days of growth usually looks best. FOR MEN: if you want to be clean-shaven, please use a moisturizer so that your skin looks fresh and healthy on the day of the shoot. FOR WOMEN: if you are doing your own makeup, keep it clean and simple. You should avoid wearing fake eyelashes since they will block the light from highlighting your beautiful eyes. 
    3. GET SOME SLEEP – the night before your shoot please do your best to get a decent night’s sleep so that your eyes are bright and alive!

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a business headshot?


Getting a business headshot can be achieved through your company or a professional company. Today, there are a number of professional headshot companies, and we recommend using their services rather than hiring a wedding photographer to do a business headshot (much like we recommend hiring a wedding photographer to shoot your wedding, rather than a headshot photographer).

At Profile Business Photography we offer premium business individual photography services tailored to you and your brand. Reach out to us and let us present you with our personalized business headshot packages that will check off all the boxes for you.
Whether you want to book a business photography session in Los Angeles, Sacramento, or San Diego, we’re just a phone call away!

Should you smile in a professional headshot?


So many people instinctively smile as soon as they sit in front of a professional headshot photographer. Though there is something engaging about a picture of someone smiling, it is not always the right look for everyone.

We recommend that you think about your audience’s experience as they meet you in this photo for the first time. We believe that the goal you should be trying to achieve is for them to trust you. After seeing your headshot, they should be left with a feeling that you can and will do a great job for them.

So, whether a smile is a way for that to happen is entirely up to you. We believe that everyone carries that message of trust in their own way, so feel free to play with different facial expressions until you discover which one conveys the right message.

What do you wear to a business photo shoot?


The wardrobe for your photoshoot should reflect current trends. Looking current and abreast of trends will help future clients and companies see you as being on it.

Besides, we recommend clothes that are more on the fitted side than baggy and prefer more solid colors than patterns (though subtle patterns on your shirt can be fine, especially if combined with a solid jacket for example).

When it comes to jewelry, you can wear it as long as it doesn’t overwhelm the rest of your outfit. A tasteful necklace and earrings can even add to the story of who you are and what your business stands for.

How should I pose for a business photo?


Posing is an art form, and models around the world are constantly working on being excellent at posing for photos. Business photography is no different.

To be able to come up with engaging poses that best reflect your personality and show off your power, you need to learn how to relax in front of the camera, and we will be happy to share a few tips and tricks with you. At Profile Business Photography, we always work hard to come up with creative, engaging poses to help our clients look their best.

In general, we recommend looking directly at the camera. We like to encourage you to look at the camera as if it is a person you are having a serious conversation with. In those situations, we don’t turn our head sideways, or lift our chins, or smile hugely. Instead, we look directly at the person, with attention in the eyes and compassion in our hearts. Those subtle details will give you success in your headshot posing.
