Professional Headshots Chicago

Business Headshots

At our headshot studio in Schaumburg, we will work together to create your business headshots. Individual sessions allow us to create an image you will be proud to use all over. You don't need to be photogenic; you don't need to be super confident. With proven coaching methods and a relaxed atmosphere, you will leave our studio with the great headshot. Using your 10-year-old headshot may seem like a good idea, after all, we all want to look younger, right? Absolutely NOT! Your headshot needs to represent you just the way your clients will see you at a business meeting. Using a crop from your wedding photo is also not professional. Our multiple looks sessions allow you to find the best fit for your corporate headshot photography needs. Hoping to see you soon.

Staff headshots

We bring our mobile studio to your office and create staff headshots on-location. Headshots for your team are so much more than just badge ID photos. Your team branding is as important as the business branding you have been working on for so long. Creating headshots for your team, so each person can get the perfect image that shows their personality, uniqueness, confidence, and approachability, is our passion and specialty. Our studio is located in Schaumburg, IL and we will be happy to reserve as much time at our studio as needed to create your team headshots there, if that option suits you better. We have worked with many small local businesses as well as large corporations to help them elevate their team branding with modern business and corporate headshots.

 The GP LOOKS Process

What goes into creating your new headshot.


It all starts with the posing. I will help you position your body in the most flattering way. Then comes the fun part. We will work on your expression to make sure your new headshot sends the right message. We will find the ratio of confidence and approachability which works best for you and your personal brand. We will work on all of the details and subtle movements to get your best look. Warning, your face, and neck might be sore after this.


We are all (most of us at least) very picky when it comes to choosing our favorite photos of ourselves. As an outsider, I will be able to help you judge the 'big picture' and vibe of your headshot. I will not concentrate on details most people focus on when they see the photo of themselves. That's how your headshot will be seen, by people who don't know you. Of course, during the session, I will be shooting tethered to a laptop and review the images with you often to ensure we are in getting the best results.


Retouching is very important to make sure your headshot is polished and presentable. I use advanced retouching techniques to make sure you look your best. Poor retouching can ruin even the best headshot, I make sure your skin retains texture but remove temporary skin blemishes. Was it your not-the-best-hair-day during our shoot? Flyaways can be fixed as well as host of other things. I got you covered.
