A NOTE FROM PAULA
“I discovered Jennifer Brindley Portrait through a colleague of mine. She came highly recommended! My last photo session was ten years ago and I needed to update my portfolio. I’m a professional speaker, executive coach and retreat leader. I help high-performing professionals enjoy success without stress and have the time to enjoy the incredible life they’ve worked to build. I wanted images that reflected my brand. Jennifer delivered!
Jennifer did so much more than take great photos. She took the time to ask questions in preparation of our shoot to understand the work I do, the clients I help and why my work was important to me. She dove into my branding, and she got to know me as a person. It’s the extra steps she took that allowed her to capture exactly what I was striving for, images that were not just professional head shots but vibrant photographs that reflected the essence of my work and who I am.
The day of the photoshoot was like spending time with a best friend. She made me feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera. She immediately put me at ease, effortlessly guided me in poses that were not “posed” but a natural expression of what I wanted to convey: professional, empowered, timeless, and fun, with a touch of glamour. She captured it all!
If you are looking for an amazing photo shoot experience which produces fabulous images that capture the essence of your work and who you are as an individual, you definitely want to book a session with Jennifer. You’ll get stunning results and a marvelous experience!”

You might not even be sure what your professional style identity quite looks like. Do not despair! I am here to help you with guidance on the best choices for the camera, as well as for your body type and your professional image. You’ll also have access to some inspiration boards after you’ve booked so that you have visual cues which can help steer you in the right direction.
Q: “Why do I need professional hair & makeup?”
A: Though many of us may be minimalists when it comes to hair and makeup in our daily routines – the fact is that when in front of a camera, our features are defined and enhanced greatly by professional makeup and hair services. These are not provided to change what you look like, or your style. Rather, they are crucial to ensure that you are polished, and all your favorite features are enhanced, bright, and open – instead of flat, washed out or shiny.
Q: “Is professional styling guidance really that important?”
A: We aren’t just focused on enhancing and showcasing your professional style! With decades of experience, we know exactly what works for the camera, what has impact in a collection of images and what will bring out the best in your body type and your coloring, from hair to skin to eyes.
