About 90 minutes from McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst Joint Base

I am Isolde, IBA is my nickname. As a  suburban Philadelphia headshot photographer, I have a retail studio location and travel on location locally and nationally. 

Your Portraits for Patriots photo session is designed to be quick and hopefully not too painful.  As one of a few volunteers for the program in suburban Philadelphia, my studio is about 90 minutes from the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.

My studio lights will be set up for a classic medium grey background but we can pivot to white or other colors if you wish. I will coach you on posing, face angles and expression and with the camera tethered into my computer you will see all your photos.  We will pick your favorites together – the final editing process takes a few days and you will get a private gallery with each one sized for easy use.

Still working part time as a veterinarian, I have applied the consistency and science from my surgical training and years of mentorship with the best headshot photographers in the world to create an experience in front of the camera you will find easy, comfortable and actually fun.
