Headshots at Prescott Farm: Kara Malkovich

Have you thought about what makes a headshot successful? Guess what? As important as it is to have fabulous hair and makeup, I’ll be focusing the most on the single most definitive part of your character: your eyes. As you think about this, I recommend even practicing in the mirror beforehand! A slight squint and a piercing gaze will light up your images with pure, intense personality.

Headshots these days are all about keeping things natural and real. People want to see beyond the poses into the core of who you are. We don’t have to go crazy here, but when we get together I’ll be asking you to laugh and relax just as much as I ask you to pose with perfect posture. Let’s show the world what makes you unique!

Realtor® Kara Malkovich Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty kept it fun and flirty during her shoot at Prescott Farm in Middletown, RI. Prescott Farm is a historic preservation of a colonial farm in spanning over 40 acres. Notable features of it include an operational windmill (c. 1812), and a University of Rhode Island Master Gardener project with the purpose of simulating a historical vegetable garden through careful research on what crops where grown during that time period.

Headshots on Goat Island: Mike Sweeney

When it comes to commercial headshots, I take a great amount of pride in capturing your best natural features, your strength, and your essence.
