Simply put, I love faces and creating headshots give me joy. Being photographed close-up can be intimidating and stressful. When it was my turn to be photographed professionally for my headshot I wasn’t excited at the prospect but I knew it needed to be done. Nataworry clients have generously posted on LinkedIn and YELP! about their experiences working with yours truly and here’s one testimonial that warms my heart:
Like many, my husband doesn’t care much for photos of himself but as a writer is often in need of headshots. He chose Renata due to the quality of images on her website and her taste in music and she turned out to be absolutely fantastic. Her eye is sharp, her taste level high and she knows how to make you feel very comfortable–it was like hanging out with a very cool friend. The experience was without awkwardness or excessive self-consciousness. It was just a one on one situation, but we fully intend to work with her again for more professional photos as well as a family portrait or two. Highly recommended.
You may be surprised at how fun being photographed can be, no matter how much you typically dislike or avoid the camera.
I’ll come to you and set up shop in your office/location of choice and photograph multiple people in a single day. The more the merrier!
Posing people to help them look their best is a specialty of mine and what I love most about creating headshots.
You can expect a quick turnaround of high resolution digital images.
Indoors, outdoors, or at your office – choose the location. A solid gray or white backdrop is the standard for Nataworry indoor studio headshots.

PREPARE FOR A SUCCESSFUL SESSION
Keep it clean
A lint roller is your best friend. Tape is a decent alternative in a pinch when removing unwanted lint, dander, and pet hair from your clothing.
Ironing is king
Bring your clothing on a hanger instead of wearing it so that it can remain as pristine as possible.
If your hair has a mind of its own, and you typically use a styling product, bring the product along with a brush or comb.
Oil absorbing sheets produced by Clean and Clear are incredibly effective! It wouldn’t be a bad idea to pick up a pack of these to have them on hand for your session.
Patterned dress shirts
Cameras sometimes react strangely to fine lines/patterns and create a moire pattern. Better to play it safe and wear a solid color shirt with no patterns, i.e., no lines, texture, etc.
Black and white
Jet black or stark white doesn’t photograph especially well.
Low-cut (revealing), and high-neck tops generally aren’t flattering.
Options = happiness
Bring at least 1 extra shirt/top with you in case one color or style photographs better than the other. Not to mention stains and wrinkles are no fun and can spoil things when you least expect it.
Beware of bling
Jewelry can be distracting, hang crookedly, etc. Honestly, you’re better off not wearing jewelry as the focus should be on you, not your accessories.
