Use Accessories to Boost your DC Business and Corporate Portraits by Tracey Attlee

Our longtime client Mrs. Wendy M. Jones of the Protocol School of Washington DC recently requested Attlee Photography to create an updated business portrait for her.

What made this session work so well is of course Wendy’s good taste but also her advance preparation in gathering potential wardrobe and accessories for her new portrait. 

When we arrived she had a selection of suits, scarves and jewelry at the ready.  We talked about what would go best with what, put together two separate ensembles and photographed her on location against a backdrop of her choice. 

Attlee Photography shoots DC and northern VA business portraits with the camera tethered to a laptop.  This way the client can instantly see how they look in our photographs and we can see how to tweak and best customize our lighting for each client’s face and figure.

Our next step while still on location with Wendy was to immediately review the proofs and have her select her favorites.   Tracey Attlee of Attlee Photography, Alexandria, VA then personally hand retouches each client’s selected business portrait for best display online and in publication.

While this article is intended for DC business women it can also apply to gentlemen.  In a business man’s portrait it’s best to have several neckties and neatly pressed shirts on hand so Attlee Photography can help you make the best choices for a great DC or northern VA location corporate portrait session.

The attached image is the very favorite one of Wendy's and ours from the session.
