Introducing a new kind of photo shoot
Hybrid Headshots
Friday, June 1, 2012

Kristi Sheriff Photography and The Defining Line Salon are excited to introduce an exciting new direction in stylized photo sessions. Over the last few years, our experience working together has become a constantly evolving collection of collaborative projects together resulting a winding trail of fabulous shoots, keepsake albums, and some award winning images.

Since everything we do together is fun, edgy, and exciting, we find ourselves unfolding a whole new world of creative opportunity. Hybrid Headshots is a shoot off of modern glamour photography which merges the need for a nice, professional image of oneself with the desire to look and feel your very best.

Professional headshots are important for everyone to have. Whether it is a polished profile picture that you are wanting or a whole extravagant series or theme, we can take your photo shoot from professional to personal and everything in between.

Our clients use their images professionally and personally, and once you see yours you will understand why. The Defining Line Salon comes into the studio as part of the professional team. They are photo prep experts that get you ready for the camera. It is you as the best version of yourself, in the very best light. Many of us have never had the opportunity to have professionals take us from start to finish in the studio. This allows you to relax and enjoy your photo shoot, knowing it will turn out perfect.

Our sessions include tip to toe prep-work. We take care all of the finishing touches and set you up for the best pictures you have ever seen of yourself. Our sessions are set up for both men and women, of all ages and style preferences.

We will be offering Hybrid Headshots at a special discount price of $50.00 or $30.00 + tax on Friday, June 1, 2012. Special pricing of $30 is available if you allow us to use your before & after shots for our sample/portfolio use. This is THE BEST opportunity to update your profile pic or your current business headshot.

We can’t wait to see you THERE!

I don’t post photos like these very often on my blog, but I think it’s about time I started sharing some of what we have been working on with The Defining Line Salon.  The more sessions I do like this, the more I just see how every woman benefits so greatly by having images like these of herself.  It’s also hard to know how to really classify these sessions too.  Are they boudoir?  Yes and no.  They aren’t just boudoir.  Are they Pinup?  Not just pinup either.  Are they glamour?  Well….they definitely aren’t like the 90′s glamour that you’re thinking now that I mentioned “glamour.”  But they definitely are very glamorous.  With all of the bad connotations to the word glamour, I had to go look it up exactly.  Here is the definition:

glam·our

[glam-er] noun

1. the quality of fascinating, alluring, or attracting, especially by a combination of charm and good looks.
2. excitement, adventure, and unusual activity
3. sophisticated style
I do think that definition fits for these types of sessions.  So, yes, they are glamorous, sexy, fun, and what you make them to be.

I just wanted to share a couple of Before & Afters from some of our recent beauty/boudoir/glamour sessions.  All makeup and hair was done by The Defining Line Salon.  They simply do an amazing job!!!!  We are teaming up and offering these sessions again on Friday, April 13th and have special packages.  If you are interested, please contact me very soon as these will fill up.  These sessions will be in the studio and all packages include hair and makeup too!
