Secret Door Excursion {San Antonio Boudoir Photography}

We have an exciting new excursion to share with you.

We will be having our first ever "Secret Door Excursion" coming up on September 13&14.

We will be renting a beautifully appointed hotel room in the town of Gruene complete with a RED claw foot bathtub. The hour long portrait session will be done in the room (and RED bathtub too). Included in the package is an hour hair and makeup session with one of Texas' most incredible makeup artists.

Image Check Up...How outdated is your business portrait? {San Antonio Professional Photographer}

The other day, I happened to see an ad for a business professional and was surprised to see his business headshot.

It was awful.
It looked like it could have been taken with an iPhone.
The lighting was bad. The quality was poor. There was no "enhancing" done to the image.
Overall, the image was not much better than a "selfie" that you might see on Instagram or Facebook.

I started wondering WHY? Why would someone who is in business (no matter what business) make the decision to have their image be portrayed in such poor light? I mean, we all learned in Marketing 101 that the first impression is the most important impression, right? So the first impression he has made on me is one of lack of quality, attention to detail and genuine lack of care for his professional "image".

Maybe your headshot does look great, it was SO great that you haven't updated it in over 5 years! There is another reason to have a new headshot taken. Trends change, styles change, you change. If you are wearing shoulder pads in your business suit, then it is time for a new photo (and a new suit...LOL).

Whether you choose ME to do your professional headshots, or you choose some other professional, PLEASE do yourself a favor: Get a Professional Business portrait taken.

We are having an AMAZING sale coming up on August 26th. It's called BUSINESS PORTRAIT FRIDAY.  Our professional headshots complete with session and digital file are on a major sale. Normally $350, you can get a high resolution file for only $150 or a low resolution file for $50. This quick 10 minute session includes ONE outfit, ONE background, SEVERAL poses to choose from and ONE file of your choice. Of course, you can always purchase more should you love several poses.

What is the difference between High res and Low res? 
        High resolution is good for printing purposes. Planning on creating a billboard or business cards or a brochure? This is the one for you. Of course, it also includes a copy for web use as well.
        Low resolution is good only for online use. Website, Facebook, Linked in, etc. Don't try to print them, they will look pixelated and blurry.
