What is the best background color for headshots?
This is a popular question for professionals seeking to get a new Headshot portrait - what's the best background color for my new headshots? This question is totally dependent upon your occupation and the use of the portrait.
For the typical Headshot, you'll want to have a background that non-distracting. This is vital because you want your face to be the focus instead of the background.

Northern Virginia Couple celebrates 50th Wedding Anniversary
Happy New Year,
It’s amazing to look back upon 2018 and reflect upon the different families I had the honor to photograph last year in Northern Virginia. As a family photographer, it’s always an honor when families contact me to photograph their legacy. This past year, I received a telephone call from Claudia wanting to have 50th wedding pictures taken. Photographing this couple is a highlight for me.

Best Northern Virginia Fall Portrait Locations
Can you believe the leaves in Northern Virginia are already beginning to change colors? Where has the year gone? Oh, I remember; COVID (for almost two years now). While driving the streets of Woodbridge, I noticed several trees in my neighborhood were changing to yellow and red. Northern Virginia is such a beautiful and scenic area during fall season; it makes for a majestic location to take fall family portraits. With the monuments in Washington D.C. and the beauty of fall trees, no place is the same.
This is the time of year; many families contact their favorite photographer to schedule their family for pictures. Of course, you'll want to have the perfect location for your family pictures; you won't be disappointed with any of the locations listed. This blog discusses some of the most beautiful fall locations for family portraits in the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area.
You've visited and glanced through my pricing and galleries and have liked what you saw; now what's next. Yay, you've decided to hire Tamieka Smith Photography to photograph your family portraits, event, or military ceremony in Northern Virginia or surrounding area. So, what’s next; to secure your desired date? I’ll ask you to complete two things next; sign an agreement and pay a retainer. The retainer is paid at the time you decide to hire me to save your date. I’m unable to hold a date and time on the calendar until this payment is received. This is to ensure that you're as committed to your portrait session or event, since I will be turning away other work. I’m sure the next question is; how do you pay? You’ll receive an invoice by email or you may submit payment securely online in the online store or via the appointment page.
Here's the outline of scheduling Tamieka Smith as your NOVA family or military event photographer.
