Seattle Area Professional Headshots

Headshot photography is often your first chance to make a good impression and when it comes to making connections, first impressions are huge. Image is everything. Don’t let your camera phone decide what the world will see – leave it to us to have it done right. If you need corporate headshots for business use, personal or professional branding photos, profile photos for social media, acting headshots, or headshot portraits for any other purpose, we can help. We are Seattle based and serve the entire Seattle metropolitan area. We shoot in-studio or on location which saves you time – we’ll come to you!

“Hiring a professional photographer to shoot headshots of you and your team is a responsible – and reasonable – investment… In the end, after having worked with a skilled photographer, your headshot is more than a file you can upload to LinkedIn without feeling sheepish. It is another, essential, part of your marketing and communications toolkit.”

Lara & Art: It’s not work if you’re doing what you love

Since we’ll be doing your headshots, you might want to know a little bit about us. Professionally we’re Lara and Art but our friends know us as Art & La. We’ve been joined at the hip since high school. We’re proud parents of two kids, a dog, and a guinea pig. Lara loves photography and Art supports her in all her endeavors. We love what we do and we have a ton of fun doing it.

My Own Headshot Session

I’ve actually never had a set of professionally shot headshots done. I was “That Guy” for sure, with a selfie that I took in my kitchen back in Chicago roughly ten years ago.
