Black Portrait Photographer in North Bethesda, Maryland

FOR THE PROFESSIONAL WITH

Warm and welcoming headshots that invite people into your story

Personality

Approachable Expertise

Can I be honest with you? Headshots usually bore me. Where's the story? The drama? The emotion

Does your LinkedIn photo really need all that?  YES. The people you're trying to serve want connection. Technology is cool, A.I. is doing her thing, but real people are crying out for real connection. And in our digital world, that starts with the humble headshot. People want to feel like they CAN talk to you, that you're within reach and welcoming them in. 

So do yourself and your brand this one favor: put down the iPhone camera, close the A.I. face app, and bring your real, authentic self into the studio for a photo that welcomes people into your story.

Detail
Oriented

As a Black woman, I know there are a few things that really matter whne it comes to photos of ANYBODY:

  • Getting those skin tones just right so you glow

  • Minding the little things like stray locs and chipped nails

  • Coming prepared for client emergencies (chapped lips, dry hands, loose threads)

Your headshots should project confidence and comfort, and that only happens when you feel confident, comfortable, and cared for by your photographer.

MEET THE 

Photographer

CHLOE BOVIA

Hello Gorgeous, and welcome to Bovia & Co. I won't hold you long, I just want to tell you that you're worthy. My photography is rooted in my own journey to confidence and a sense of worth. After having my baby (a wildly active 1 year old Sesame Street superfan), I struggled with feeling unseen and undesirable. I felt like my new body was a burden, and I refused to take any meaningful pictures of myself for nearly a year. And I wholly regret it. I do photography now because I want every woman to know that she is worth remembering at every stage. Every pound, every failure, every achievement, every everything is worth remembering.
