Modern and fresh Boston Headshots
Clean. Modern. Headshots in an this modern style offer a clean and modern take on traditional Boston headshots. Although they have the potential to be just as formal as a seamless background, their added color and variety can make an individual stand out from the crowd. A portrait in this style is also handy to use for social networks. You’re still the center of attention, since the environment itself is out of focus, and it can give your photo a more personable touch. It provides an alternative to the solid grey backdrop and can be useful for almost any industry or individual, from lawyers to comedians.

The vanilla “Solid Background” headshots
This professional and minimalist look with a simple light or gray background is clean and functional. Ideal for Boston professional services headshots, it’s an easy look that can be replicated.
This is what I call the “vanilla” of all Boston headshot photographers.
If you’re like me and love vanilla bean ice cream, there’s a quality difference between the Madagascar vanilla bean or the cheapo mass produced vanilla.
