Headshot Process

Do you hate having your picture taken?

A professional headshot is worth updating. Trying to be and do everything is exhausting. It already takes huge amounts of effort to manage work and family successfully, and now with the all-knowing internet watching you, you have to look the part too. you’ve gotta be kidding!

Most people hate photos of themselves because they know for sure that they look better in 3D, moving through space and time. Often times that’s very true – and it’s not a reflection of you! The problem is, a camera is just doing what it’s told. The camera doesn’t see your best angle, and it can’t tell if the light is flattering. It simply grabs a shot of what’s there when the operator hits the button. In contrast, our human brains get an overall impression of how you look while you move through space, and they let the little things go. You simply don’t look the same in photos as you do in real life.

That means that it’s not your job to be photogenic! You actually can’t be photogenic – that’s not really a thing. Looking bad in pictures is equally available to everyone (and looking good is available to everyone too)! It’s your photographer’s job to make you look your best in headshots. Your headshot photographer is responsible for choosing the right tools to capture the most flattering composition, lighting, and poses.

That’s why Lara Grauer Photography has developed an efficient & playful 3-step process for Seattle studio headshots – so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands, and all the details are covered.

Here’s how it works: First, contact Lara to get set up with the right session for you. Lara will make sure you have a plan and know how to prepare and what to wear. Then, just show up to your photoshoot! You’ll get on-site help with styling details, and supportive posing directions to make you look your best. Step 3 is to view and select your head shot portraits together with guidance from Lara.

A standard headshot session will last an hour from start to finish, and a full-service headshot session will last as long as it takes to get the job done (typically a maximum of 3 hours).

Seattle Portraits – You Are Worth It

Once upon a time, there was a sweet and loving young mom who spent a lot of time with her children. She loved her cell phone because it made it easy to take pictures wherever they went. She wanted to savor the special times her kids had as they grew and experienced the world. This…

Seattle Portraits – Seasons of Childhood

Childhood is a beautiful chapter in life that occurs through five main seasons. As parents, we have the honor of watching our children move through each one up close. But when it’s over, the fading memories are all we have. I believe each season should be preserved with at least one wall-worthy portrait.  Lara Grauer…

Seattle Kids & Family Portrait – Kids Grow Up in the Blink of an Eye

Remember when your baby would gaze into your eyes, their tiny fingers grasping one of yours? Remember when they buried their head in the crook of your neck for soothing after they fell? Remember how they vigorously leaped across the furniture escaping the “hot lava” floors? Taking children and the many moments for granted in…
