MEET Laibel

Bringing a brand to life brings joy to me, because companies are run by people, and people we trust. Since we never know who is going to drop by our website, social media, or other outlet, it is imperative that the message we send to our clients creates the best first impression we can. I love working with and getting to know people. Most every day people are not accustomed to being photographed, and there is a unique excitement in the reveal of an image that I create of themselves. Showing someone an image that they never could have imagined would be taken of them is the most rewarding experience. 

Coming from a background in couple portraiture, I am bringing a unique and engaging experience to the corporate world. Under the mentorship of renowned headshot photographer Peter Hurley, I am happy to share that I am always growing and looking for opportunities to learn. This in itself has brought me to better places both and a photographer and as a person.

If you would like to schedule your first session, call us at 845-418-2527.
We would love for you to stop by the studio to experience what our headshot photography is about.
We create a photography experience that is unique to every individual and corporation, so email us to taste the sweetness of our passion.

preparing for your session

What to Wear

Be sure to choose clothing appropriate for your type of work and industry position. The neckline is very important, since the headshot is a close crop on your head and shoulders. Well fitted and tailored clothing is a must, as baggy clothing will make you look larger than you desire. 

In general, it’s a good idea to bring one light neutral such as cream, beige, or light gray, one dark neutral such as brown, black, or smokey gray, and one bright color option. Deep purples compliment almost any skin color. Stay away from darker colors if your hair is very dark, as your hair will blend into your clothing. Also keep in mind that as we age, lighter colors may be more flattering and fresh than all black, as darker colors near the face draw more attention to wrinkles. 

Keep accessories to a minimum. A headshot is meant to enhance your most engaging features, so a distracting necklace or pair of earrings is not a good choice. Sometimes we need to remove them altogether since a headshot may look odd with only one earring showing. 

Need a second opinion?
Contact Us before your session and we’ll walk you through it. 

 • Make sure you arrive well rested and hydrated in the days prior to your session. 
 • Arrive with clean and dry hair and skin, with no makeup, if you booked a session with The Headshot Studio makeup artist.
 • Bring along at least 3-5 options for tops, with a variety of necklines and strap styles.
 • If you have long hair, avoid tying it back before the session to avoid creasing, but bring along quality hair ties and clips.
 • When relevant, please take care of any manicuring of eyebrows and/or facial hair a few days before the session.

"Laibel is a total blast to work with. His eager, playful and joyous energy is so contagious, it just makes you want to play in front of the camera - I was literally jumping around! I felt so comfortable being myself and letting my guard down. Laibel wants to get to know you and make you look your absolute best. He was completely encouraging and loves to involve you in the process. I appreciated that he asked for my feedback throughout our session, and that he valued my opinion. He is so easy to work with and by the end, you feel like you’ve made a new friend. "

"Before I used Laibel for my recent professional headshot, I thought a "good enough" photo for LinkedIn was, well, good enough. Who really cares right? However, after checking out his professional studio, I learned that there's a huge difference between the results he's getting and my old "buddy's wedding LinkedIn pic". It's only been one week, but I have watched my LinkedIn traffic skyrocket by 89%! My income is based largely on making memorable first impressions, so this is very exciting for me. Also, I got tons of compliments from friends which also gave me a big confidence boost. If you care about improving the first impressions you make, then I highly recommended speaking with Laibel. - A.L.

"I had the pleasure of working with Laibel on my headshot. He has a way of making you feel comfortable and pulls out the real you in just a few minutes of meeting. I felt relaxed and excited while we were shooting, Laibel explained the whole process as we were going through it. Even when you feel uncomfortable to look good for the final picture, you already feel in the safe zone. Laibel is amazing and if you can use him, you MUST!"
