Studio Headshots In Ijamsville

We all need an updated headshot from time to time.  Now you can easily schedule studio headshots in Ijamsville with Christine Schombert Photography.   Updating a headshot should be easy, comfortable, and  quick.   Getting in front of a camera lens is intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.  Having a friend take a shot with a cell phone is not going to cut it.  Now you can schedule a studio headshot in Ijamsville during your lunch hour or on the way home from work.  


Christine Schombert Photography offers simple studio headshots in Ijamsville, by appointment.  Her studio is located off route 75 south between Route 80 and Route 355. 

With an upbeat, friendly approach, clients are guided through a short session of  headshot poses based on their intended use of the image.  Need a couple of looks, no problem.   Headshots for business, blog, resume, and/or social media profiles are available.


Recently, a former client needed a headshot to present with her application to try out for the University of Maryland Dance Team.

Harper requested headshots that reflected her outgoing personality and energy.  An 8 x 10 headshot was  required to submit with her application to try out for the University of Maryland Dance Team.  She met me after work for her headshots in Ijamsville.


Harper arrived well prepared with a duffle bag full of tops from which to choose.  I suggested  soft muted tones because the focus for a headshot is your beautiful face.   Soft powder blues, pinks,  grays, off-white and creams  are best.  Long sleeves are best if you are seldom happy with the look of your arms in photos.  With Harper trying out for the dance team, we needed to show both dance and professional attire.   Here are a couple with her first top.

The focus is Harper’s winning smile and beautiful eyes.   The soft lavender color complimented her features and did not distract from her pretty face.

The two ceiling-to-floor windows allowed for sunlight to stream and bounce off the walls for a bright fresh look.  Using a combination of natural light and portrait studio lighting allows for bright eyes and even skin tones.

The classic black was a must for Harper’s dance portfolio.

For the third wardrobe change we opted for a long-sleeves off-white blouse which gives a fresh, feminine, and professional look.  I love this look on Harper.

Harper asked if I would also take some images of her doing some of her favorite dance jumps.

We were able to shoot all of these shots in under and hour.  It doesn’t need to be any harder than that.   Harper was thrilled with her images.  It was a pleasure working with Harper and hearing about all that goes into learning the dance routines and being in top shape for tryouts.

Great News!  Since these images were taken, Harper found out that she did make the University of Maryland Dance Team!  She is so excited to begin her journey at the University Of Maryland, College Park.
