Healthcare Executives – New Jersey Headshot Photographer

A while back, the folks at Fox Rehabilitation contacted us about setting up some on-location headshots for their executive team over in Cherry Hill, NJ.  Fox Rehab provides physical, occupational and speech therapy services, and, if I recall correctly, they do a great deal of work with folks from senior living communities.  The administrative assistant who was coordinating the sessions with us corresponded with us about various items, such as general considerations to prepare for the session, and soon we were set to head over & meet the executives to be photographed.

When I arrived, I lugged my gear into the executive suite area through a side entrance, and had the pleasure of meeting everyone before I set up.  They were a cool bunch, each with a great sense of humor.  Amongst the bookshelves of healthcare literature & the whiteboard for brainstorming sessions, the sprawling c-suite had a number of items to help the executives relax & I’m sure work off some of the pressures of the job.  There was a ping pong table, where I jokingly challenged CEO Tim Fox to a game, and I had to move some RC cars out of the way to plug in my lighting.

Every session has it’s own set of challenges, and this one was no exception.  Often, the client can be nervous about being photographed, but in this instance, that wasn’t the case.  These guys were cool & confident from the start and had what you would traditionally refer to as “executive presence.”  As quick & decisive high-level executives, I only had a few moments with each of them to get shots that looked natural, confident, & professional.  Despite any constraints, for me, it’s all about getting something authentic, since anyone can spot a fake smile a mile away.  Overall, I had a good time connecting with each of them, and was able to coax some genuine expressions from them, getting them a set of shots that did them justice!  Here’s some images from the session.

Cherry Hill Split-Level – NJ Real Estate Photographer

One of our recent real estate photography sessions was for one of our friends from Keller Williams Realty in Cherry Hill, NJ.  The home was a nice split-level located in the Barclay section of Cherry Hill, and it was owned by a young couple who had recently given birth to their second child.  With a newborn at home myself, we had plenty to chat about, but I was sure to be as quiet as possible when the baby was taking a nap.

When I first arrive at a house, I usually do a quick walk-through with the owners or agent to get a feel for the home, scout out the spaces to be photographed, and get a preliminary idea of the different angles I might want to shoot from.  I find that this often saves me time with the overall session, as I already have an idea how I’m going to be approaching things.  It’s really just a good time to get acquainted with the key features of a dwelling, and a time when I can discuss any important particulars with the owner or the agent.

Initially, I was just really impressed with how super-clean the house was, and I liked the tile work in the kitchen backsplash & in the bathrooms.  I thought it looked great, and it really added a pristine, clean-cut quality to the home.  By the time I made my way down to the lower level, I was very impressed with the giant room with the wood-burning fireplace.  My favorite part was the awesome tile flooring, and the space was big!  Here’s some of the shots from the session.

Tom’s Website Portraits – NJ Portrait Photographer

Tom is a Realtor based out of Keller Williams in Center City Philadelphia, and he recently reached out to us for some photos to go with his new website.  He also works out of Keller Williams in Cherry Hill, NJ, and you may remember him from his headshot session back in March.  Since then, he’s been tearing it up in the Philly market and has been looking to build up his web presence.  Tom’s a great guy with a big personality, so I was pretty excited when he got in touch with us about some new images.

For a few weeks, we kicked around ideas for the session, really trying to hone in on exactly what he was looking for.  At one point, we were going to do some outdoor, on-location images over in Philly.  We thought these would work pretty well with his site, but we eventually decided on a set of studio shots that he could use on various banners and advertisements.  The guy working on his website had suggested that he could really use of a set of shots on transparent backgrounds in the site’s design, so we went ahead with this idea.

From here, we faced a bunch of obstacles in getting together… everything from us both being swamped with work to Tom having some travel plans for a few days.  We must have pushed the session off a half dozen times, but, in the end, it was great to finally be able to get together for the session and get some great shots.  It was also really cool to hang out with Tom before I headed off to the hospital for the birth of my second daughter!  Good times… here’s some of the shots from the session!

Marlton, NJ Home – South Jersey Real Estate Photographer

This session was just really cool, and I was super excited to photograph the home.  I’ll kick it off with a little backstory on the session which lead to an interesting chain of events…

About a year ago, in June of 2012, I was contacted by the CEO of a branding & management company about photographing his home that he would be listing for sale.  He was super nice to me and explained that he really, truly understood the importance of having top quality photographs to market his home.  (This was, of course, music to my ears.)  He went further to say that his agent, upon hearing this, offered to find a photographer for the listing, but he was so adamant that the photos be of the absolute top quality, that he would perform the search for a photographer himself.  This is how he came across our work, and knew, immediately, that he wanted us to photograph his home.  He called me directly to set up the session, and I photographed the dwelling, along with a twilight photograph, etc.  Long-time followers of our blog may remember his original session, posted here.

From here, his agent, from RE/Max Connection of New Jersey, was really impressed with the images, and upon getting so many compliments & inquiries from colleagues as to who her photographer was, she reached out to us as well.  She has since become a favorite client of ours, with whom we really enjoy working.

However, the story doesn’t simply end there…

Exactly two years after purchasing the home, the new folks, a military family, were told they had to relocate.  The would have to sell the home to move to their next duty station.  Because they were so impressed with the images as the buyers the first time around, they not only reached out to the listing agent again (our friend), but also insisted on the same photographer for their listing.  They mentioned that during their search, the images really drew them to look at the property, and remained a constant reminder of how much they liked it throughout their decision process.

Wow!  That’s awesome… Thinking about that for a second, the images we created not only affected a great deal of people over the past few years, but they also generated repeat business for an agent (one of our goals), and us (that’s a win too)!

So, this is how I came to find myself photographing the very same home, exactly 2 years later!  For me, it was really nice to meet the new owners who had liked our work from the initial listing, to see the ways in which the home had been changed by its new owners, and to see how my work had progressed from 2 years prior.

It turns out that the new folks were super nice, and in full disclosure, I sorta liked the way they decorated the house better than the original guy… icon smile Marlton, NJ Home   South Jersey Real Estate Photographer  Regardless, here’s the photos from my second session at this really nice home an Embassy Grand model in the Ridings at Mayfair neighborhood of Marlton, NJ… Enjoy!

Real Estate Agent Victoria – NJ Headshot Photographer

Victoria is from Woodbury, NJ and she is a Realtor at Keller Williams Realty in Swedesboro, NJ.  She recently gave us a call about getting some headshots for her profile and marketing materials, and she was a lot of fun to work with.  Victoria really wanted to have her portrait done right, mentioning that she had shopped around a bunch and just really liked our work.  She also explained that she had previously paid someone for some really cheap headshots that came out pretty bad & left her unhappy.

We were happy to get her set up with a session that would really nail the crisp, professional image that she was looking for.  Beforehand, Victoria mentioned that she wanted just the right backdrop for her photo.  We discussed some of her options, and settled on a nice, new brown seamless backdrop we had recently got in the studio.  She loved it, and it was the perfect selection for her session.

Victoria was awesome, and working with her was a lot of fun.  We came up with a ton of really stunning shots, and even a handful of hilarious outtakes.  I laughed because she was really good at raising one of her eyebrows… I’m really good at studying faces & expressions, and this is just one of the things that popped out at me during the session.

In the end, Victoria loved her headshots, and even remarked that she loved how the lighting looked at the end of one of her emails…

P.S. the lighting is Amazing!!”

- Victoria E.

Here’s some of the shots from her session in the studio, along with a handful of the outtakes… Enjoy!
