Whether you need a single headshot or an entire personal branding overhaul, we can help you be seen as your most authentic, and effective self.

About Mike Lloyd Studios

We collaborate closely with each client to understand their narrative, aiming to create images that encapsulate their journey, their dreams, and their extraordinary essence.

Elegant and Dramatic

This is Mike’s signature look. It’s inspired by classical paintings, as if you’re lit by moonlight. It’s romantic and mysterious. Mike is known in the photography world for this extremely difficult lighting style and won’t find anyone else creating images like this.

Vivid and Cinematic

This is our go-to look for families and high school seniors. We bring the elements of the scenery into play to help tell your story. We know the best places around to match your personal style.

Clean and Clear

YOU are the main character in your story and our branding and lifestyle sessions are created to show you in the most authentic and marketable way. This means highlighting what makes you YOU and not showing anything else.
