Science reveals that Headshots on bright backgrounds like orange are eye catching_Photographer Brooke Clark

Here’s a fun fact (backed by science) — Humans can draw conclusions about people based on their photo in less than one-half of one tenth of a second…or in other words —  we can make a positive visual impression in 40 milliseconds. (Or the opposite…but I’m a “glass is half full” kind of gal so we’ll just go with that!)  I found the coolest article from Kevan Lee on the subject and it has a ton of really interesting research-based data and suggestions… including:

  • 7 Elements of the Best Profile Pictures
  • How to appear approachable, helpful, and attractive
  • What makes you seem likable, competent, and influential
  • To face the camera or not to face the camera
  • The importance of the background color …and SO much more, but I’m not going to lie…I was pretty fired up that my current profile picture (above) is the EXACT one they recommended for maximum impact (100% coincidence but I’m going to act like it was on purpose 😉 )

Jokes aside… my un-scientific experience says that preparation and confidence are likely going to take you the farthest in your pursuit of a strong profile headshot for social media but if you’ve got a minute — this was a great read!  Oh and if you are looking for headshot inspiration and samples you can check out our Studio B Headshot Gallery

We didn’t let Spring Showers dampen our spirits…we simply just headed into the studio and after spending an action packed session with the Vong Family  — I was really surprised to learn that it had been 6 long years since they had done a family portrait together.  (WHAT?  Well we won’t have them waiting that long again! 🙂 )

For all of you Moms looking for Spring family picture’s inspiration, I know you are loving the chic pink and navy combination here, right?  The unexpected pop of polka dots and stripes keeps everything so fresh & modern.

I know you can’t tell because these love-birds are so impossibly gorgeous and relaxed,  but it was NOT warm outside — it was every bit Pacific Northwest February. Cut to this behind the scenes that we posted on our Instagram… (Yes, that’s me in a climb-Mt Everest-jacket while these beauties lay by the river-side)

P.S  Oh on a slightly related note; (and you may already know this if you have been to Studio B) I’m obsessed with that book — Awkward Family Photos and specifically…not ending up in it. How about I did a search on “awkward engagement” photos — it’s hysterical.  I will now add this to my list of places that I NEVER want to be published! (haha)
