Jill’s Oakland Professional Headshots

Working with Jill to create beautiful professional headshots in Oakland was such a blast. After chatting, we decided on Lake Merritt as a great location for portraits. I loved that Jill had such a connection to this part of the city and was excited to create images that showcased her best in a place that she loves.

I arrived early to scout out locations and was excited to start with simple greenery. The light was really lighting up the trees and I was so excited by the way this worked with Jill’s beautiful red brown hair.
