Are you looking for Headshot Photographers in Los Angeles?

If you typed in headshots photographers Los Angeles in your search, then the answer is “YES!”  I am so new to Los Angeles, and I am looking to increase my L.A Portfolio.  If you need headshots in Los Angeles, you should give me a call today! I have a passion for helping aspiring musicians, actors, and creatives get stand out through digital photography.

Why should you choose me to take your headshots?

Although I’ve only been in Los Angeles for a couple weeks, I have owned and operated my own photography business since the beginning of 2008.  My experience includes photographing and videographing weddings and events, and shooting portraits and lifestyle shoots.  But most of all, I understand how important your head shot can be.

We are all in this Together!

I am here, just like you are! I came here to try and make a better life for myself and my family, and I really want to make it work! I don’t want to go back to another cold Wisconsin winter! I am just as dedicated to your dream as I am to mine.  Right now, tomorrow, this week- we can work together and get your professional L. A photographer headshots taken.

What to Expect

First, we meet up for coffee and go over clothing options and locations.  This is the time when I learn about who you are and what you want out of your photography.  Secondly, we shoot.  Photography shoots typically last about an hour.  Typically, we can shoot in 2 different locations during this time.  My preferred time of day to shoot outside on location is in the early evenings.  Last but not least, you receive your images in about a week.  We can either sit down together or I can send you a digital link.  I can give you my professional opinions on best options, if you would like.  You get to pick and download 5 images from the shoot.  If you would like more, they are available to you at an additional price.

What does it Cost?

Everything that I have explained will cost you a total of $125.00.  This includes the preshoot consultation, the photoshoot and 5 digital images for you to use.  In return, I will be using your photos to promote my photography business here in Los Angeles.

If I were you, I would jump on this! I am not a newbie photographer, I am a professional with over 8 years experience.  I just want to take photos, and grow my business here.

I am following a dream, just like you!  I can be reached at (608)697-1419 or by email at stephanie@stephshanks.com

Burbank Photography

Hi Are you interested in Burbank Photography?  I am new to Burbank, and would like to tell you about my photography business.

I ‘accidentally’ started my photography business over 9 years ago when I started my facebook account.  When I was a kid, I loved taking pictures but lost touch with it during college when I started taking classes in art and art history.  By the time my third son was born, I had just gotten a ‘nice’ camera and started taking pictures and posting them on facebook.

Soon, other’s were asking me to take pictures of their kids and their families.  So, I started learning more and more about photography, photo editing, ect.  By 2012,  I had gotten so busy with my photography that I decided to do it full time.

Flash forward to Burbank Photography:

We unintentionally moved here from Wisconsin in August 2017.  After travelling in a camper van for 8 weeks around the U.S, we came to Los Angeles to have lunch with some friends who had recently moved here.  We loved the weather and the people so much that we decided to move here!

I am excited to be here and excited to start by Burbank Photography business here!  I offer all sorts of photography services such as headshots, wedding and event photography, photo editing ect.  Burbank seems like such a beautiful place, I can’t wait to start shooting here!

I am available 7 days a week for you!  The best time to shoot outdoors is in the early mornings or late afternoon. I am not really a morning person and the sun comes up awfully quick, so I would rather shoot in the evenings.  I am best reached by email at stephanie@stephshanks.com.  You can also check out more of my work portfolio style at: https://stephshanks.pixieset.com/

I look forward to working with you soon!

Professional Headshots

Professional headshots are more important now then ever before.  Gone are the days of stuffy, studio headshots. In are the days of creative, fun and spontaneous professional headshots.  I will work with you to create unique, one of a kind headshots that highlight your personal brand, story and mission.


Your personal Headshots

It’ s no secret that setting up your headshots is about as fun as setting up a root canal.  As humans, we try to push off things that we feel will be painful.  It’s time for you to stop thinking that photography is painful.  Updating your headshots will put you back in the professional game.  We live in a world where first impressions are everything.  Most first impressions are done online.  How do you want to be seen? What do you want your story to be?


Building Your Business Brand

So you are ready to start making more money this year?  Great advertising starts with great pics (and great word of mouth compliments!)  These headshots were done for a friend of mine, she needed new pictures for her business cards and facebook advertising.

How do you want to be seen?

If you are like me, you want options.  I like having a couple of different portraits and images to choose from depending on the day and who I am communicating with.  As long as your images look like you, feel like you and tell your story- feel free to have fun with them!
