This image is one in a series of business headshots taken of staff members at the stunning Monarch Beach Resort in Orange County. We shot there on location, and by changing the angle slightly and rendering the background out of focus, we were able to call to mind the look of the resort, without any distracting elements taking focus from the subject. Also,though a few members of the team were photographed in a similar spot, changing the angle meant no two portraits looked identical and we could provide a nice blend of unity and variety for our client's final selection of images. We were also able to guide this catering team member to a relaxed and welcoming expression that is perfect for promoting her role in events at the resort. As seasoned headshot photographers, we are pros at understanding branding and delivering the results our clients are looking for.
