Senior Pictures: Creatives “Takin’ it to the Streets”

We here at Kelly Weaver Photography just LOVE to capture students' unique personalities for their senior pictures, and our studio is PERFECTLY located for seniors who are creative or artistic because our nearby streets and alleyways really enrich their photos. A variety of creatives love "takin' it to the streets" when they work with us. We've photographed a tons of creative senior pictures for students who are artists, dancers, and more! For example, Gabrielle is a violinist, singer AND even an engineer. Her senior pictures are outside our studio, and the splashes of color and...

Portrait Photography: Try Fun Winter Photos OUTSIDE!

With wintertime comes cozying up to a fireplace and being bundled up with lots of layers. When people think about spending time outdoors in winter, what usually comes to mind is winter sports, but did you know you can do FABULOUS portrait photography outside? You surely can!...

Professional Pictures: Natural Lighting for Realtors

For realtors, it's super important to connect with your clients immediately, and often this connection happens first with professional pictures. Gone are the days for stale, overly professional headshots because clients today want to connect with YOU first before they make the leap to invest in your services. Sometimes professional pictures in studios can be a good thing, but for real estate agents, what's much better is NATURAL lighting and being photographed in your environment -- a beautiful home! Kelly Weaver Photography's location has background option that boasts the look and feel of a home,...

Portrait Photography: Naturally Lovely Lashes!

Oftentimes when I see portrait photography, I see gorgeous women but with unfortunate makeup choices because the colors are too bold, the mascara is too harsh or even clumpy looking, and sometimes it makes them look hard and disconnected from their audience. As women, we've been conditioned that we're "not enough," that there's always something out there that will make us MORE beautiful! But we at Kelly Weaver Photography believe that women ALREADY are beautiful just the way they are! ...

Portrait Photography: Successful Photos for Financial Planners

Similar to the real estate industry, which we covered in an earlier post, financial planning also tends also to use outdated portrait photography. Traditionally, professionals in these and other industries visit a photography studio because many photographers prefer using a staged setting in which they can control the lighting and background. It's simple and quick for them and takes very little creativity when dealing with professional pictures. As a result, you frequently see people like financial planners posing in front of a gray or blue background with harsh, unnatural-looking lighting. These types of backgrounds create...

Professional Pictures: Show off Your Pro AND Casual Sides

It's becoming increasingly popular for our clients to want both professional as well as casual photos, so Kelly Weaver Photography now offers both photography packages for either two or five poses. These packages allow you to show off your many sides by taking advantage of our location options. In one photo session, we can capture both your professional and casual sides because, after all, professional pictures can also be casual, and you can use casual shots for social media or dating sites....

Portrait Photography: “Teaming up” by Using Collages

As mentioned in an earlier blog post, it's important to keep employee portrait photography current. As soon as you add a new team member, you need to include them in your print and online marketing materials. This can become costly for companies if they tend to have a regular employee turnover, so the best way to remedy this is to take individual photos of all the employees and grouping teams in collages....

Portrait Photography: How to Capture YOUR Strengths

More and more Fortune 500 companies and SMART companies are learning to focus on employees' strengths -- rather than their weaknesses. So it makes a TON of sense to capture your strengths in your portrait photography as well. Because our society and media largely focus on what's "wrong" with us, all too often our natural talents go untapped. Thankfully, companies are increasingly building very successful teams designed around team members' strengths. Strengths are what make us UNIQUE, and they are different from skills, which can be learned....

Portrait Photography: MATURE Women MEAN Business!

We here at Kelly Weaver Photography believe in PRO-aging rather than ANTI-aging, and we believe in celebrating wisdom and strength, so we capture the beauty of age in portrait photography. Plus, I recently received my AARP letter in the mail inviting me to join, so I'm choosing to OWN my 50-plus years! After all, these are "The POWER Years." Don't listen to any of the lame media out there that tells you otherwise. Choose to OWN your age because by the way, age is a only a mindset, so it does NOT have to be...

Professional Pictures: Regularly Swap Your Profile Pic

Sometimes people ask me, "Why get more than just ONE image?" This is a great question. We've been taught that for professional pictures, we only need one and that we only need to swap it out every 5-10 years. Sometimes, people even use photos older than this! People go through seasons and are constantly growing and changing--it's what we do best. We strive forward. We excel. We make leaps and bounds and do NOT settle for plateauing. Don't you want your personal brand to capture this determination for success, too? Because doing so will definitely...
