Headshots special for $125

Are you like me? Do you often go to someone’s blog or check them out on Facebook to see what that person looks like only to discover that the photograph is so terrible you have mistaken them for a horse? The moral of this story (not really a story) is to make the right impression with a great profile picture. You’ll look legit, professional, and it’s also a very good way to stand out from the crowd. The picture you use says so much about you. Make sure it’s saying what you want.

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, but Justin, won’t a great profile picture cost a lot of money? Well, hold on to your hat.

I’m offering this headshot service for at an incredible price for a limited time.

$125 will get you a headshot portrait session at my studio plus 5 images of your choice that you are free to use for online purposes: your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn (seriously, people actually use LinkedIn), online store, profile picture for your next convention speaking engagement, you name it.

But just like a delicious pie sitting on the counter, this sweet deal isn’t going to last forever. I’m only offering this special rate on a few select days in February and March 2013. For available days, further details, and additional samples, see our headshot page.

It’s time to put your best foot forward, Tiger. Let’s talk.

Color Me Katie

by justin on January 28, 2013

in bloggers, portraits

In the nicest way possible, Katie Sokoler made me feel old. Old, as in, having fun took effort, instead of something that just happened naturally, because if you have fun naturally, that way, life is so much, uh… funner. And for someone that describes themselves as a professional fun maker, it’s not surprising that when I asked her if I could take her picture, instead of just sitting in a chair (what I probably would have come up with), she wanted to jump on the bed or throw around some balloons. It was so great to watch the way she thought about taking pictures. She’s a photographer herself, and a very clever one. She took a look around the room and came up with possibility after possibility.

Clever and creative, and most of all, FUN, meet Katie.

Alt Summit Party on the Roof

by justin on October 11, 2012

in bloggers, Events

One of the great things about the folks that put together Alt Design Summit is that they know how to throw a party. I remember at one point in the evening, as the sun cast long shadows over Manhattan, and there we were on the roof of the offices of Marth Stewart, I thought to myself, “there isn’t anywhere I’d rather be right now than right here, in this town, with these people, photographing this party.”

A Blog About Love

by justin on September 27, 2012

in bloggers, portraits

I want to move to New York, just so I can hang out with Mara and Danny more often. These two will put even the crabbiest of grouches in a very good mood.

Their very popular blog, A Blog About Love, chronicles their own love story and also gives advice on how to keep the fire burning.

I’m so glad we got to spend and afternoon together, Mara and Danny. Let’s do it again some time. And thanks for the pizza!

Here’s Rebecca from the blog A Daily Something.  She’s a stylist and event planner. Well, that’s her title. What she is is endlessly charming and creative and she’s constantly cooking up some sort of creative this or that. Just read her blog and you’ll see what I mean. I don’t know when I’ll get to take pictures of Rebecca again, but I wish it was tomorrow.

Meet Rebecca.

Portrait of Gabrielle Blair – Designmom

by justin on February 4, 2011

in bloggers

Saying something like, I love Gabrielle Blair is sort of like saying, I love cheese. Of course you do–who doesn’t? Gabby runs Designmom.com which Time Magazine named of the best websites of 2010. Again, tell me something I don’t know.

Here she is photographed with her husband Ben at their home in Denver. (Although it’s not their home any more because the Blair family is spending the next year in France).

Want to know more about Gabby? Here’s an interview with her on the Mormon Women website.

Portraits: Many moods of Maggie Mason

by justin on January 24, 2011

in bloggers, portraits

The night before Alt Design Summit began I was invited to dinner at The New Yorker restaurant in Salt Lake, sponsored by Hewlett Packard. I wondered if there was going to be anyone there I’d know. Turns out, some of my favorite people showed up: Stephanie and Christian as well as the very fine illustrator Sarah Jane and her husband. (She posted a picture of us on her blog).

And when I saw Maggie Mason, I was prepared to go up to her and say something impressive, like, you probably don’t remember me but I met you last year at Alt. But I didn’t get a chance. Instead, as soon as she saw me, she gave me a big hug and said, “Justin! It’s so great to see you.” Well how about that. Maggie Mason, you know know to treat a guy.

Maggie is the life of the party.

So in the spirit of whimsy and fun that is synonymous with Maggie, here’s a fun match game for you. Match the pictures below of Maggie with the mood of Maggie. Leave your answer in the comment section or play along on your own. Here are your choices:

Mighty Earnest – Mighty Mighty – Mighty Indignant – Mighty Graceful – Mighty Pugnacious – Mighty Peppy – Mighty Regal – Mighty Stealthy

{ Comments on this entry are closed }

Everyone loves her wildly popular blog, DesignMom, but the real fun is being around her. Gabrielle is funny, bright, lively, and spirited. No wonder moms find so much joy from her site.

Gabrielle: Thanks so much for your time. It was a real pleasure meeting you. I hope our paths cross again soon.
