Images That Build Instant Credibility

Almost everyone has had an agonizing experience when needing new headshots.

I have heard the stories of your previous experiences before finding me – you spent a lot of money and never used the images because you didn’t like them. You thought you were coming in for a professional headshot that would make you feel confident and you left thinking something is wrong with you because you didn’t get the results you expected. 

All of that stops right here. 

You need someone like me who specializes in faces and coaches you into the expression you want to convey. I have a process to help you look your best so you leave with images that capture interest and build trust.

A Great experience even if you are self-conscious in front of a camera

The experience exceeded my expectations on every level! Working with Izabela Mattson was an excellent experience from the initial contact to the final product. Izabela is not only a skilled photographer, she really knows the business and makes her customers feel at ease by creating a fun and easy entry point for a positive photography shoot. I highly recommend her for any photography needs you may have.

Martha Christy Shimeall

Izabela was amazing. I normally hate having professional photos taken. She put me and ease and made it a fun experience. It was the best photoshoot I've ever had.

Nichole Kephart

Great overall experience, capturing images of who we are and what we do can not be easy, but Izabela made it fun and easy, of course the end results are just superb. I highly recommend Izabela for any high quality, professional and thoughtful photography you may need for your business.

Matthew Slaughter

I cannot say enough good things about Izabela and her photography skills. Izabela went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, confident and involved the entire time. I'm personally someone who gets a bit stiff and mechanical in photos but she was able to get me to let my guard down to capture several great pictures! I would rate her 10 stars if it was possible, she will definitely be who I recommend to anyone and everyone!

Holly LaCoste

Last time I had headshots taken by a different photographer I ended up not using any of them because I didn't like them. In just a few minutes Izabela captured several looks that I really like and can't wait to use!"

Joshua Maramba

Izabela is an exceptional photographer. She is insightful and straightforward from start to finish. She has an excellent eye and attention to the little details which makes the difference between a good photograph vs a great photograph. During the photoshoot she was professional, encouraging and enthusiastic which brings out the best in her subjects. I will hire her again for any future needs I have for my business. I highly recommend her to others!

What should I wear?

 I want you to get the most out of your time with me and coming prepared with the right outfits can make or break a photoshoot. So this is a conversation I definitely have with you when you book your session. For women, I recommend fitted clothes and solid colors rather than outfits with print and patterns. For men I talk about the shirt, jacket and ties. I share with you where I see the most problems when it comes to outfits so you pay attention to details when you select yours. Some people are very confident about what to wear and some people want more help that I am happy to offer. What to wear really depends on your brand and how you want to come across. This is the first thing we talk about when you book your photoshoot. 

Do you retouch?

I offer full retouching and I ask about retouching after you have selected your images to hear if you have special requests. Some of my clients say “less is more” and some say “more is more”. Once you get you images back I always ask you to see if we need to change anything. From here you are either excited about your images or you want me to tweak something – this is a natural part of the process and I always welcome it. 

Do you shoot on location?

Yes, There are two situations where I photograph on location. One is if you want to hire me for company headshots and you want your team or employees to save time driving to me. It is convenient for everyone that they can be working up until it is their turn to pop in for a new headshot and then be back in their office. I bring my studio setup to you to ensure the best lighting and I offer image selection on site so each employee can choose their favorite image right away. 

The second situation is when you know that you prefer environmental images in one or several locations in stead of a studio photo shoot. You might have a specific vision that requires we go to an office, a farm or the beach. This would be a part of my custom session. Call me now so we can talk about your vision and how I can help make it happen.  

What if I'm not photogenic?

 Every week I photograph someone who claims they look like an Ogor (really awkward) in photos. If you feel that way too then I bet you have never hired a professional photographer who knows all the tricks to photography like I do. The camera can make you look slimmer (posing), younger (lighting) and very confident (expression) – it can also do the opposite, but I am all about empowering you, so don’t worry about feeling like you are not photogenic. I have no expectations of you other than you are open to listening to my guidance. I coach you and tell you exactly what to do so you leave feeling that it wasn’t that bad. I know it can be difficult having your picture taken if you are very self critical, but I am on your side and I am fully vested in your image. Now give me a call so we can get you some fantastic images!
