    If you are seriously looking for a business headshot in Los Angeles, photographer Aaron Gil of FotoNuova says to make sure you have the right style portrait created that speaks to your type of client.  “Often people think that a portrait is a portrait.”, Aaron says.  “However, this could not be further from reality.  Stop and consider what is the ultimate goal of this portrait?  More than likely the goal of your business portrait should be to either attract clients or convey that you are an open, friendly and a real person.”

    Although a portrait can be created by virtually anyone, Aaron advises that serious professionals that want to make an impact with their portrait, hire a professional photographer that specializes in business head shots.  “Really, hiring someone who specializes in these portraits is the best way to get the most personality and warmth out of someone”, said Aaron.  “There is a big difference between a photo of someone and a portrait that captures all of your personality.  You only have split seconds for your portrait to make an impact with a potential client.  They either will see that they can want to work with you or not.  Why take a chance?”

    Aaron creates both studio and natural light headshots in Los Angeles, Pasadena and surrounding areas in Southern California.  Most of his clients prefer for Aaron to go out on location to either their business office or a list of preferred locations that Aaron often uses.  “We’ve created beautiful studio portraits in small conference rooms or an office lobby.”, said Aaron.  “For these type of portraits, a client may want a traditional solid backdrop or perhaps a more involved portrait that can include incorporating their office environment.  In addition to professionally lit studio portraits, our specialty is creating on location portraits using natural light.”

    Aaron uses a variety of complimentary poses and provides his clients with a list of suggested clothing to help make his clients look their best.  “I’m often asked by clients that they want to look slimmer and younger.”, says Aaron.  “I uses posing and clothing to aid with the appearance of being slimmer.  I use lighting that’s complimentary to help wrinkles and blemishes look less prominent.”  Photoshop is the tool of most professionals these days.  Photoshop can be used to retouch and create an overall color and contrast tone for your portrait.  “Our basic business headshot service includes; blemish removal, lighten wrinkles, teeth whitening and stray hair removal.” said Aaron.

    Business portraits take as little as 10 minutes for clients that only need one final portrait, to as much as an hour for clients that need multiple portraits with clothing changes.

    Aaron Gil of FotoNuova is a business headshot photographer based out of Pasadena and servicing all of Metro Los Angeles.  Call 626-588-2445 today to find out more about creating your business headshot.

    My guess is that if you are reading this, you may be looking for maternity photo ideas and considering a maternity portrait?

    I’ve personally heard from some women that they fear taking maternity portraits as they think it will entail naked belly’s, topless husbands and tummy kisses. While some certain styles tend to become popular and pounded into our heads over and over, maternity portraits don’t always have to follow the same line of thought all of the time.

    In fact, the canvas is wide open when creating your maternity portrait. For instance, I happen to love history and love when clients want to incorporate a historical style to their portrait. One of the themes I love is a Greco Roman theme. It’s completely unique and dramatic. A theme that you can get away with when you are expecting a baby. Pregnancy is a time full of love and beauty and this theme suits it so perfectly. It will most certainly be a conversation piece in your home and a memorable portrait for years to come.

    Here are two ways we have incorporated the Greco Roman theme for maternity portraits:

    Coasts of Rome

    This is a very simple and beautiful idea for a maternity portrait. It incorporates a dramatic piece of coastline but can be captured in a natural field of tall fresh or dry grass.

    You only need one piece of fabric in either silk or of the flowy variety. You can purchase a silk or silk like fabric at almost any fabric store or online. We have done it with large pieces of cheesecloth as well.

    Add various accessories such as period costume jewelry, a rope belt and sandals that help to give it the look of the period. The jewelry for this portrait is inexpensive costume jewelry we purchased at Forever 21. Captured this in a beautiful natural setting and you are sure to have maternity portraits that stun! More on this idea within our feature here: Grey Likes Baby Feature

    Neoclassic Greco Roman Setting

    From Wikipedia the Definition of Neoclassicism: is the name given to Western movements in the decorative and visual arts, literature, theatre, music, and architecture that draw inspiration from the “classical” art and culture of Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome.

    So in essence, during the 1800’s and early 1900’s, there was a popular movement to emulate classic art that was Greco Roman in style. In studying some photographs from this period, there was a romance about them with women often trying to emulate the poses and styles of these ancient people. One unique aspect about these portraits was that there were often elements of their current time period that you would not find in ancient Rome or Greece. Elements such as what was then, modern furniture or decorative items such as perfume bottles and hand mirrors.

    We created this Neoclassic style for a maternity portrait with our clients.

    We incorporated elements that would be found in such a photograph such as the oriental rug, antique chair, fabrics, fruit and other ornaments.

    One can take these ideas and certainly make it their own style. It could be more colorful and have more modern themes to it. You can make have the same kind of vignette and incorporate other time periods and styles such as Art Deco, 70’s or your favorite decade, modern simple and Alice in Wonderland tea party. We can go on and on.

    Whatever your style may be, the most important aspect is to create maternity portraits that you will be able to look at 10 years from now and have them remind you of this special loving and beautiful time in your life.

    As a family portraits photographer, It’s always a thrill to hear from clients and when we are doing a great service for them!

    One such client, Audrey, posted a wonderful review of our family portrait service and what it meant for her on Yelp!

    You may find the actual review here: Yelp Review

    I recently had an interest in having portraits taken for my son and I and decided to consult with Aaron Gil from FotoNuova…and I couldn’t have made a BETTER decision!

    Aaron was absolutely awesome! His expertise, professionalism and easy-going personality made our photo-shoot not only comfortable, but FUN! Aaron exhibited and executed confidence in his work, but also allowed us to be creative with our ideas, which resulted in a successful shoot that exceeded my expectations.

    Aaron really captured the moment. Our images came out clean, classy and cool, and I am most pleased.

    I assure you that whatever your photography needs may be, Aaron Gil will not disappoint… -Audrey A.

    Thank you Audrey!

    As a family portraits photographer, I have the honor of creating portraits for a diverse range of families. Some are large and some, very small.

    Audrey and Savian are the size of 2. Mother and Son. Nonetheless, the love and bond they have for each other is immense. It’s a beautiful thing to see.

    Here are a few samples from Audrey and Savian’s portrait.
