3 Simple Steps to Schedule Your 30-Minute Professional Portrait
PLAN & BOOK
Discuss your needs and plan your session - in studio or on location, wardrobe, makeup, hair, jewelry, nails, background color, schedule your session
SHOOT & SELECT
EASY, EFFICIENT & FUN SHOOT
Get comfortable, relax and enjoy your shoot - then sit down immediately afterwards for a guided image selection - all in about an hour.
CELEBRATE YOUR NEW LOOK!
PROFESSIONALLY RETOUCHED NEWLY BRANDED IMAGE
Once your professional portrait is retouched it will be emailed to you in 2 sizes (for print and web). Sit back and enjoy the accolades and compliments you will receive on your newly branded image!
The experience is just as important as the final photographic product. We go over the "look" you would like to achieve before I even pick up the camera.
Do you want to be:
What "look" do you want to achieve - contemporary or formal? Do you want to face left or right? Where will the photo be placed: in a printed brochure, on a resume, or at the bottom of your email near your signature? What is your choice of studio background color, or would you prefer a "virtual background." A virtual background (a.k.a. "green screen") can be a colored texture, a location (indoors or outdoors)...or I can even place you in front of the Eiffel Tower if you so desire!
Most of my clients haven't had their portrait taken since their high school yearbook, so you will most likely remember this photo session with me for quite a while. It is very important to me that our experience is a GREAT one! Many recall their past experiences as unpleasant, awkward or rushed. I try to dispel all of those concerns or nervous fears of the camera as soon as you walk in the door. I truly love what I do, and I hope my passion for making YOU look amazing is contagious! We are going to have a great time together!
Take a peek at my 100+, 5-Star Reviews which recount the fun experiences my clients have had while working with me. More Google Reviews here. I try very hard to make your entire experience at our photo session easy, efficient, painless, fun and rewarding resulting in amazing photographs! My goal is to make YOU look the BEST YOU HAVE EVER LOOKED IN A PROFESSIONAL PORTRAIT and we will really have a great time, doing just that, together!
Karen Vaisman Photography
Conejo Valley's Premier Portrait & Headshot Studio
My studio is a residential studio. I will go out of my way to make you feel welcome! We will have a telephone consultation in advance to answer all your questions, to best prepare for your business portrait session.
I am a master photographer with over 15 years of Professional Photography and Retouching experience. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Syracuse University in New York and studied studio portraiture at The Rochester Institute of Technology. I'm known throughout the Los Angeles area for the fine art of retouching. Please visit my before and after gallery to see samples of my retouching work. (click here)
you will look AMAZING - no matter your body type
This session is about making you look the BEST you can be! I focus on eliciting great expressions from you. Natural posing is integrated into our session resulting in beautiful images. To do that, you need to feel at ease and comfortable. We will be chatting so I can find out more about you and what you do, snapping away all the while. I use an iPad while I shoot, to show you the images immediately as they are taken. You can view your first few pictures "LIVE" - then you can relax knowing you look great! We can then go on together to create many looks, once you are at ease.
Styling Consultation - Colors and Wardrobe
We collaborate based on your tastes, business guidelines and personal style. I have various background options for you. We discuss how your color preferences (hair and clothing) will coordinate with your background choice and the message you want to send to your clients, boss or target audience.
Makeup Artists / Hair Stylists Referrals Available
If you desire professional assistance with makeup and/or hair, referrals are available. I have worked with hair stylists / makeup artists that I have recommended for over 7 years. If you prefer, you can use your own professionals or, of course, feel free to do your own makeup and hair. I ask you arrive at the studio with makeup and hair completed, ready to shoot. Please bring your makeup, hair brush and styling products for last minute touch ups, just in case!
I offer an 11 Tips to Dramatically Improve Your Professional Portrait PDF Guide (click here or see link below)! We will discuss the details during your telephone consultation that specifically focuses on how to look your best for professional studio lighting. In the guide, I go over tips for wardrobe selection and preparation, hair, makeup, nails, jewelry and even practicing your desired expression in the mirror before arriving!
The Art of Retouching is the "secret" that Will Elevate Your Personal Brand by differentiating your Photo from the crowd
In our competitive world (especially online), you have a split second to make that brilliant first impression.
Are you looking for a job? Do you need an updated LinkedIn profile photo? Have you just been promoted?
professional Corporate photography with artistic retouching
will help you achieve your personal branding goals!
All the corporate portraits in the gallery above have been professionally retouched and enhanced.
Some of my clients may assume the pictures come out of the camera that way - WRONG!
Each image has been painstakingly worked on for 1- 2 hours, removing imperfections, lint, and stray hairs and more!
I'm known for skin and wrinkle softening, digital weight-loss, digital makeup & eyelashes. I remove double chins, addressing minor imperfections to help you look your best while not changing "your look," merely enhancing your best features while making sure you still look like YOU.
I can add more hair (if yours is thinning), or even remove gray hair.
Whiten teeth and eyes - I help your eyes sparkle!
I remove creases from clothing, and tailor clothing digitally.
My clients LOVE that I help them take off a few pounds (in the computer!)
