AI, aka Artificial Intelligence has gotten alot of attention lately; especially for using in headshots after a woman posted her AI headshots on TikTok. Actually, that was pretty cool. I guess you can use AI for alot of things in alot of ways, however, I use it more simply.
Before your headshot session begins, I ask a bunch of questions to get to know you better and one is if you're self conscious about anything? Hey, most of us are about something and I don't mind using photoshop; however, if I can work on what we discuss before you get in front of the camera and during our session, that's even better.
For headshots, I have always felt authenticity is a big part of trust and you have that one chance to make that first impression; what do you want it to say about you? I don't use it for elaborate backgrounds (yet, although that looks fun), however, I did ask Amanda, The Roof Maven of Maven Roofing and Exteriors (www.mavennj.com) if she wouldn't mind me playing around with AI on her headshots.
I've had the pleasure of knowing Amanda for several years, She used to own Momique in Morris Plains and helped me get involved in a small business group until the world shut down in 2020 and so much changed. I digress, I've taken Amanda's headshots before and hoped that she'd trust me to do this...and boom! The results above are done with a little AI. Let me say, wow, this was fun but more time consuming than I'd expected, so from a business perspective, to go through this process on a regular basis, would drive the cost up; it takes time and skill to progess well with it. But look at her! Confident..poised...professional yet there's also that personal feeling to the image, too.
So, everyone has a little bit of asymmetry in their facial features, and when I ran through the AI process, the system barely edited her facial features, but it evened everything out. It was definitely a fun project and with every career, there's progress and if you don't keep up with the times, you're going to lose out on opportunities in the future; so this was me, leaning into the AI world. I know there is a lot to work out in the area of copyright issues and overtime, I'm sure the AI will look more realistic; which is a bit scary to think about, however in the meantime, I'm happy to keep experimenting with this AI concept when I have the time.
Millie Dee Photography Studio is located in the Landing section of Roxbury Township, NJ. In between our normal maternity and newborn baby photo sessions, we also offer several different headshot session types so please feel free to check out our website for more information on headshots: www.milliedeephotography.com.
I know headshots are something people are usually looking to rush into and get in and out of the studio, however, having some prep time is always advantageous and something to keep in mind when you're booking. Our studio usually books up several months in advance and we're by appointment only, so we don't offer last minute or walk in appointments; better yet, if you hire us for your business of over 12 employees, we will pack up our equipment and come to your business for headshots.
I wonder if this AI thing will be a phase or will stick around for a bit. I guess time will tell. Thanks, Denise

Where did the name Millie Dee come from? It's my 2 nicknames, my maiden name is Miller, so some friends call me Millie and some call me Dee instead of Denise, so I jammed them together and made Millie Dee...
