Leadership Portraits on Location

Houston business portrait photographer, Michael Carr, recently went to a company’s offices to photograph their key executive’s leadership portraits on location. Michael photographed the executive portraits using the office environment as the background as well as bringing a studio background for the portraits. The images were to be used in the company’s new branding initiative for marketing collateral and online image branding.

Before arriving for the sessions Michael consulted with the marketing manager to brainstorm ideas and concepts for the sessions; plenty of pre-planning in advance of the actual photography date. On the day of the session, they met face to face and Michael showed her the areas and office backgrounds for the sessions. During the individual business portrait sessions the clients were able to view their images real time and select their favorites. This is our process which we have found to be streamlined and efficient for the business and key executives. The leadership team is only needed for a short time window during the sessions so they can get back to their business quickly.

In today’s market, corporate leaders and business professionals are looking for ways to brand themselves and market their services in a different manner than their competition. Executive portraits can help you place a cutting edge on your services vs your competitor and ultimately determine who ends up getting the phone call. Your corporate image speaks volumes about you and your business. In a digital age where searching for services is occurring during all hours of the day, it is key to have your best image forward at all times. This theory applies to not only websites, but also social media apps such as LinkedIn, professional trade sites, and your marketing kit collateral.

A headshot is not just a headshot. It is your personal branding.

Women’s Casual Editorial Portrait Photographer

Women’s Casual Editorial Portrait Photographer, Michael Carr, offers business lifestyle Portraits for Houston area professionals. Featured here is a recent session with Beth Moore of Living Proof Ministries. Beth is a well-known religious speaker and the founder of Living Proof Ministries; which is a Bible-based organization for women based in Houston, Texas.

For her PR portraits, we felt a women’s casual editorial Portrait in Houston would work well with her marketing campaigns. Lifestyle or editorial portraits are commonly used in periodicals, magazines and marketing campaigns where a more casual image is required. Environmental portrait sessions can be tailored to your profession and can communicate your personality in a different method than a traditional business portrait would. Scouting, planning, storyboarding and pre-lighting the session made for a smooth and successful assignment. We also consulted with her before the session so proper clothing was pre-selected and prepared before her session. Casual business portrait sessions are available on location or in our studio. We have a relationship with a nearby salon that provides makeup and hair, should you also need those services. To view more of our women’s casual business portraits, please visit this link. To view more of our on location environmental portraits visit here.

Michael Carr Photography is a full service portrait studio conveniently located off 610/Woodway. Michael is one of the few Houston photographers that is a PPA Certified Professional Photographer (CCP).

Houston Family Portrait Photographer

 Children’s Portraits in Houston

Houston family portrait photographer, Michael Carr, captured these Portraits of Andrea recently. We have photographed Andrea for her family for many years. We have enjoyed seeing her grow up; and yes we remember when she was very tiny! Her Mom called us and wanted a different Portrait to celebrate Andrea turning 10 years old. We decided an outdoor session in the fall would be perfect. We had the perfect location in mind for this session too. We helped her Mom pre-plan clothing for Andrea’s portraits, and ultimately let Andrea decide what she wanted to wear.

Throughout the portrait session we talked with Andrea and made her feel relaxed and comfortable. We wanted her personality and character to show through the entire session. Here are just a few of our favorite portraits from her milestone session.

Wedding Photographers in Houston

Houston wedding photographer, Michael Carr Photography, recently photographed Becca & Christian’s wedding and reception. The ceremony was held at St. Luke’s Methodist Church, and their reception was held at a private residence.

Originally the couple was to have their reception at the Omni. Well, this summer hurricane Harvey hit Houston and due to the Omni flooding, the couple had to decide on a new venue for their reception. Ann Whittington helped transform their ballroom reception into a stunning tent reception at a private residence. The reception became a one of a kind, unique ballroom. With the floral and décor talented team from Plants n Petals, the tent was adorned with marble walls, floral décor on the ceiling, chandeliers, and even a flower floor entryway to welcome guests. The guests enjoyed a seated dinner, and danced the night away with the fun band from Atlanta: Party on the Moon. The cakes were made by Susie’s Cakes. At the end of the evening, fireworks & guests sent the couple off for their honeymoon.

Michael Carr Photography is a Houston based wedding and portrait photography studio that has specialized in weddings and portrait photography for the past 20 years. Since the beginning, the studio has been owned and operated by Michael and his wife Lisa. The studio is available for destination weddings both domestically and internationally.

Houston Wedding Photographers

Houston Wedding Photographers, Michael Carr Photography, recently photographed this Rehearsal Dinner for a wonderful couple. We also photographed their wedding, which will be highlighted in a separate post. Their rehearsal dinner was held at The St. Regis Houston. Their rehearsal dinner theme was a Renaissance Union, and coordinated by Ann Whittington. This theme was carried through all the details and décor for their intimate rehearsal dinner. Guests were welcomed into the dinner with door greeters in Renaissance attire and dialect. They also had an incredible cake that looked like a castle, with a water mote surrounding the castle. Susie’s Cakes did a wonderful job with this cake, and it looked so real! In the cocktail area, guests could write well wishes to the couple on coins with the couples monogram, and toss the coins in a wishing well. A Renaissance quartet provided wonderful background music during the cocktail reception. The St. Regis ballroom was decorated with the same theme and pulled together with candles and beautiful florals by Plants n Petals.
