If you’ve ever worked in corporate America, you’ve most likely seen the 'group amoeba' photo hanging or sometimes affixed to the fluorescent-lit halls. Worn-out prints from the ‘80’s, ‘90’s and even the early 2000’s show awkwardly smiling faces – and some equally awkward facial hair from the early days – of what should be the entirety of the company. The key phrase there being should be. In the modern era of cell phones and high-pixel digital cameras, the number of opportunities for taking amazing photos have...

Denver Professional Portraits with “Eye Connection”

Denver professional portraits are a key component in our businesses. People still BUY people, therefore an image that connects to your audience is instrumental. So, exactly how DO you connect with your audience through your headshot? The answer-- Body language and EYE connection. Both are important, however EYE connection ranks as #1.

Before we say anything else, it's important that you know WHAT you want your headshot to say about you as...

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Similar to the real estate industry, which we covered in an earlier post, financial planning also tends also to use outdated portrait photography.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...
