The first impression you make is the most important one. As a business professional, your first impression is often your image.

Modern Headshot by Elite Images is a unique branch of business portrait that goes beyond the standard headshot. These images portray the confidence and openness you want your clients to see in a highly contemporary style of photography. We use model-style lighting techniques that lessens the appearance of wrinkles, decreases shadows on your face, and creates a thinning effect by defining your jawline.

Step 3: Choose Your Favorite Image

Either the same day as your photography session or the next day, you'll receive a link to view and download all of your images.

What Makes a Modern Headshot Different?

One of the most common questions we get is "How is this different than a regular business portrait?" Simply put, a Modern Headshot photography session is fully custom and tailored to YOU. While Business Portraits use standard backgrounds and standard head-and-shoulders only posing, Modern Headshots allow for a wider range of looks and styles with multiple backgrounds and a variety of poses--including mid-length and 3/4 length compositions.

This means that Modern Headshots are able to capture your professional attitudes and personality much more than a normal business portrait. With a Modern Headshot, we capture who you are, not just what you look like.
