Portfolio: Spring in Northwest Arkansas makes for great headshots

Spring has sprung in Northwest Arkansas! Trees and flowers are blooming and the days are getting longer. That all means it’s a fantastic time to refresh your image with a new professional headshot. You can get great shots at any time of year but each season in Northwest Arkansas brings its own unique advantages.

The trees may not be in full bloom but the greenery already blooming provides a beautiful backdrop for many styles of headshots. I often crop springtime headshots closer so that you get the benefit of the greenery without noticing that the trees are not fully bloomed.

I also love how Northwest Arkansas is filled with many types of backdrops such as old barns and many natural areas such as fields and streams. The different lighting this time of year makes these types of backgrounds even more exquisite!

Just take a look at some of my more recent spring headshots:

You’d never know that the trees were not in full bloom! I cropped this in tightly to bring even more emphasis to this client’s face. The background, however, remains interesting and gives the headshot that fresh look.



A field of wildflowers are perfect for a senior picture or for headshots representing many different industries.


Old barns or other structures provide a natural-looking, simple backdrop.
