Make Your First Impression Count!

Your first impression determines whether or not your audience will resonate with you, with your message, and in a split second determine; whether you get the meeting, the interview, or even a call in the first place. So often, we put off the “headshots” because we can “make it work” with a selfie or better yet, a cell phone snap in your backyard with your son or daughter managing the button pushing, right? Well, I will be the first to tell you that this particular approach will only get you so far. There WILL come a time where you do, in fact, need imagery that showcases you as being the friendly, approachable, authentic, and professional you. Nobody said you HAVE to wear a blazer, or comb your hair a a certain way, but you do need your audience to be able to identify with WHO YOU ARE…in a split second.

Let’s create some imagery that will carry you through to your next full marketing campaign. Inquire below for packages and pricing and let’s secure your appointment. There are only a select number of sessions available.

I cannot wait to photograph you.

Rock Star Team

"Cat and her hair and makeup team were rock stars all the way. Cat helped me figure out where I wanted to go in terms of branding imagery for my new business that I'm starting, and the execution of our ideas was seamless. My photos were gorgeous, so much so that I felt like I couldn't even put into words how wonderful they were. I would absolutely call on Cat at Studio 828 next time I need a pro to do portraits for either personal or business. Thank you Cat and team!!!!!"
