Ashley reached out last summer about doing professional portraits for herself.  She had just turned 35 and had been wanting to do them for a long time!  

We recommended she consider our Custom Headshot Session – it includes professional hair and makeup by Pure & Couture salon, portraits both in studio and at an outdoor location of your choice in multiple outfits, and loved ones are welcome to join in for some portraits as well.

Ashley decided that would be a great option for her as she wanted to include her son Deonte for some shots at both locations.

Here’s what she had to say of her experience with Pure7:

Such an incredible experience from start to finish. Ryan and Erica listened intently and helped me create exactly what I envisioned. It was a dream of mine since 2007 to work with Pure7 and it was a very special experience! I originally reached out to get new professional headshots, but then decided to include my son in the photo shoot. I absolutely love the headshots, but my favorites are absolutely the beautiful images they captured of me and my son. I will treasure them for many years to come!!!

After the shoots, Ashley came in and couldn’t believe how beautifully the shots came out!  She had a really hard time narrowing it down to fewer than 20 of her absolute favorites!  Can you blame her?!

Your professional portraits give an immediate first impression of you – are you approachable, relatable, and welcoming?  Do your headshots reflect who you are in life and business?

One of the things we love about our photography process, in general, is capturing your unique personality in every shot.  You can loosen up and even bring a friend (or your kids!). We love natural, authentic photos that showcase your unique personality so you can rest assured your portrait session will be interactive, comfortable, and most of all, fun!

From professional portraits to not-so-corporate headshots, we’ll work with you to create images that fit your personality and brand.  Whether you want formal shots in our studio or some more relaxed shots in your favorite place, together we can create some professional portraits you are excited to share.  You can find some more of our favorite headshots here!

Your portraits speak to people – let’s create some that are vibrant and interesting!  If it’s time for an updated headshot or branded images that reflect your personality, reach out today to get your next session scheduled. We’d love to connect and create the perfect professional portraits with you.
