Lunch :: Hugo's & Headshots

There's nothing like a spicy Mexican dish to wake one up in the morning. I've been to Hugo's before and every time I go, I get Huevos Rancheros or some variation of it! Bryn and I stopped there for brunch after taking her headshots the other day... so good! I like this place because there are lots of veggie options and meat dishes alike. Something for everyone. Do check it out next time you're in town!

Very proud of this girl. The gang recently went out to celebrate her leaving her full-time job for a new journey! I definitely know what that feels like. Anyway, here are my two favorite shots of her... they're very mildly tweaked by me, but I'll show the final set once they're edited by someone else! ;) I'd taken photos of her before, but nothing like this. We're going to do more soon! I love being behind the lens.

Any photographers have tips for taking headshots? I'm a beginner at this photography style. Any advice is appreciated! :) Thank you.

  3. Oh my goodness that food looks incredible. I want it in my belly!

  4. The food looks so yummy!

    I don't really have any advice for taking headshots... I'm only good with food photography and cosmetics for the most part. I will say, though, I actually like the one of her drinking coffee better than the two that you chose. I think the setting and, angle, and composition are more original than the second and third, which are very formal or cliche? Though they are all good photos. Keep practicing and experimenting. I've heard from lots of people that one of the most important things with taking photos is the lighting, though again, I'm ill in experience!

  5. Um that food made me want to eat my laptop screen! hahaha. Cool headshots! I'm new to learning photography too, so if you learn tips let me know!

  6. that food looks so good! i love love love tofu dishes.

    and for headshots - natural lighting and a low f-stop are key, i think. i do all my headshots for weddings with my 50mm at f/1.4 in the best natural light i can find - not direct (too harsh of shadows)

  7. Oh yummy! Great photos.


  8. Don't let me forget to talk photo with you when I see you for dinner! xo C

  9. @Amber : There is nothing cliche about these head shots. They are very much at the edge of what is happening with head shots now. Cliche would be inside with a white background, formal clothing, looking straight on to the camera.

    @Steph : Girl, you got a great perspective! I expect to see more portraiture in the future!

  10. i really like your headshots!
    and the food, yummm. if only i could handle spicy food!
    xo, cheyenne
