We were honored to capture new headshots and professional branding images for Valery Saul. Valery wanted her session to feel professional, yet reflective of her style and spirit. She intends to use these photos for her website and for marketing, so it’s important that she exudes both professionalism as well as a strong presence in her images. We captured Valery’s branding images in our Portland studio with both white and black backdrops. Striving to incorporate the spirit of her as a conductor, we had Valery both pose and conduct for us, so that we could capture her headshot as well as photos in motion.
