    Smart. Classy. Gorgeous. {Modern Headshots at 50th and France}

    Friday, February 8th, 2013

    What a blast to meet Jonelle- she randomly found me and needed an updated headshot for a recently appointed position. After chatting a whlie we realized we both attended the U of MN at the exact same time! Sadly, we came up short in trying to find a time or place where our paths may have crossed but we had fun reminiscing nonetheless #lovemyjobandthepeopleimeet

    Zel Skin & Laser Clinic Headshots {50th & France Edina}

    Monday, January 21st, 2013

    Meet the beautiful staff at Zel Skin and Laser Specialists located at the 50th & France location in Edina. I had SUCH a blast photographing these women and learning more about their areas of specialty and expertise. They are all so dedicated to the services they deliver – full of compassion for what they do. On top of that, a sense of humor that kept me giggling all afternoon.

    {Modern Headshots} for Men | Minneapolis Headshot Photographer

    Sunday, November 18th, 2012

    Ok you mostly see me post my {Modern Headshots} of women – they are for men too! I do them about once a month. Maybe a little less flashy, a bit less colorful, but equally as important and fun :) Soo… much more exciting than your run of the mill, bland and personality-less photo.

    Here is a quick glance at the session I had last week – move over George Clooney!

    Winter is a great time to update your headshot when we are tied to the indoors and the sun isn’t beckoning for all the outdoor, Minnesota activity. Visit me at www.teresahermesphotography.com to set your appointment!

    ‘The Big Announcement’ …New Photography Studio at 50th and France!

    Saturday, July 21st, 2012


    Finally! The unveiling and announcement of my NEW PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO!

    A few months ago already another photographer friend and I moved out of our shared space in downtown Minneapolis’ warehouse district to this charming little spot at the coveted 50th and France area.  I had been seeking something in a neighborhood setting that would feel comfortable and cozy, have the perfect natural lighting set-up AND be easily accessible/enjoyable for my clients. This was it!  Prayers answered. It truly feels like a bit of a dream come true and I think part of my waiting to share was because I had the ‘pinch me did this really happen?!’ feeling and wanted to be sure :)

    We are located on the 2nd floor of the building which is ideal because everything I do at the studio is by appointment. Most of my sessions are done ‘on location’ especially May-October yet there are plenty of situations that call for indoors so when that is the case, this is where we’ll be!

    Some neat features of the space is that there are actually 2 rooms that are separated by a half wall so we were able to decorate/set up for 2 spaces :) We also have our own bathroom! Practically unheard of for studios like ours.   What we loved most about this space are the windows on 2 walls – north and east facing which provides such beautiful light for portraits.

    We have done a ton of hard work to get the space to what it is now. Since my studio mate and I live clear across the metro from each other we texted each other  photos of furniture as we’d stumble upon it while shopping. The decor sort of unfolded as we went and I love how we worked together to make it be a space we both felt could represent us and our businesses.

    If you aren’t familiar with the 50th and France  (click on the link!) area then you definately need to come and experience it for yourself! It is a collection of close to 200 businesses in a charming neighborhood setting and borders Minneapolis and Edina. There are so many amazing restaurants, boutique clothing/gift stores, spas, coffee shops, novelty shops as well as other professional services AND a movie theater.

    If you are out and about this Thursday evening, July 26th there will be a ‘Ladies Night Out’ across the entire business district with a lot of participating stores. Fashion shows, Yoga, Boot camp, and lots and lots of sales and deals. We will be doing free facebook headshots at the studio! We are 5007 and right next door to The Yogurt Lab and Athleta – upstairs, office #5. Come on in and say hello! We’ll have light refreshments and sparkling water. I will plan to do more open houses/parties this fall or winter. Summer got too crazy!

    {Modern Business Headshots} Meet Julie From UL Living; Edina MN

    Friday, July 13th, 2012

    I knew the instant I met Julee Penton Sylvester from uppercase living ®this past spring that she was a mover and shaker! Her engaging, bright smile matches her effervescent personality so I was not the least bit surprised when I got the call a few months later that she would be receiving an award as a top seller! The deal was tho – that I had to keep this a secret… for nearly 2+ months until it was published in the catalog and announced at their convention (fun fun!) I love to be in on awesome secrets :)   So needless to say, we had so much fun as she was the first {Modern Headshot} session at my new studio and happy to let me experiment with the space while taking her photos. If you aren’t famliar with UpperCase Living – they are a company that sells inspirational vinyl decor and jewelry http://js.uppercaseliving.net/Home.m

    In the wine world, the “Angel’s Share” is a term used to describe…

    Thursday, June 7th, 2012

    the portion of wine that evaporates during aging. Did you know that? I did not.

    Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with Jennifer Chou of Angel Share Wine Partners after she finished taping an appearance on WCCO (and I should mention that the day prior she had an appearance on Kare 11!)  Whether you are a wine enthusiast or struggle with ‘WINEtimidation’, you ought to become familiar with Jennifer. http://www.angelsharewine.com/

    Here’s a little about the company: Angel Share Wine Partners represents boutique wineries from around the world. Each wine has been hand selected and tasted by Chief Wine Officer Jennifer Chou, who has ten years of experience in the wine industry. Jennifer has a passion for travel and teaching others about wine, and she is delighted to help others become confident and comfortable with wine to help further their career.

    {Modern Headshots} Photos to fit your style and showcase the best YOU.

    Monday, June 4th, 2012

    My main emphasis/area of specialty has always been on children and family photography but in the past year I’ve been getting a lot of request for headshots and I LOVE it!  I think it’s due in part, to the surge of people embracing social media for both personal and business and wanting to have more than a dark and fuzzy mugshot to represent them.  Aside from all the resquests for updated headshots for LinkedIn, Facebook, etc it seems that more than ever before, people are starting their own businesses which is AWESOME! They are creating websites and seeking photos to help fit their brand, style, and personality.

    I truly enjoy the entire process of headshots – from learning about each person’s needs to the full execution. I want to make sure that we get images that reflect not only the brand/mission but want people to absolutely love them and feel great about themselves.   I want an outsider/consumer to look at someone’s headshots and feel like they know the person, just from the photo!! I want my client  to fell that their photos show on the outside, just how beautiful they are on the inside. It involves a lot of trust and collaboration between both the client and myself and is ALWAYS a fun process.

    Here are a few highlights from my Session with Liz, a Stella and Dot Stylist.  I cannot say enough wonderful things about my friend and her ability to help you find the perfect ‘sparkle’ for your outfit, event, and lifestyle while having a blast in the process! She truly cares about women and making sure they feel as beautiful as they look! She will take the time to consult with you and give you honest feedback on what will work and what will not.  Visit her page  http://www.facebook.com/stylistliz and website http://www.stelladot.com/sites/lizcouchman

    Modern Headshots for Professionals

    Friday, May 25th, 2012

    I’ve been busy again with headshots so over the next couple of weeks will add a few more people to my ‘Modern Headshot’ portfolio.

    Meet Bev from The Floral Studio in South Minneapolis! Bev specializes in creating permanent and fresh floral arrangements.  I met Bev a few months ago and was immediately drawn in by her warmth and sincerity. Her beautiful smile, sparkling eyes, and gentle demeanor make her such a joy to be around. I know when I have an event I will call her because I’ve seen her creativity and professionalism at work. With 10 years of experience she can create the perfect arrangement for your event – proms, parties, home decor, commercial decorating, weddings and funerals.
