I took a new approach to my headshot photography shoot with Kendria here in Chicago. Kendria is a former pageant queen and is no stranger to having a camera in front of her. But, she had not had a headshot photo session in a long time and wanted to update her commercial headshot as well as theatrical headshot in hopes of moving from the pageant world to the acting and modeling world. I have to say, that I don't think that I have ever shot so many headshot Chicago looks with one client before, but Kendria was a great model, she new how to work the camera and it was also one of the more fun Chicago headshot photography sessions that I have done.
In this professional headshot, we wanted something that she could use as both a commercial actress and for her theatrical actors head shot as well. We wanted something that was sexy and sophisticated at the same time with shallow depth of field. I think we nailed it!
