Associate Photographer: Melissa Robbins

Hi! My name is Melissa Robbins and I have been working very closely with Kristina as her full-time assistant for the past two years. Over the past year and a half, Kristina has invested in teaching me how to build my own headshot portfolio. During this time, I’ve learned all the tips and tricks that Kristina applies when photographing clients, and incorporate those to my own subjects when I’m photographing. The clients that choose to shoot with me can rest assured that the quality of their headshot will be nothing short of exceptional. My sessions take place at Kristina’s home studio, use all the same equipment, and often times, Kristina is on site incase there is ever a question that needs answering. The arrangement that Kristina and I have created allows us to offer top notch headshots at a much more affordable price-point for the executive or actor that is looking for a more economical headshot option.

Northern Virginia Headshots


Melissa will be holding sessions on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays ONLY from September 1st, 2017 through December 14th, 2017.

"I found Washington DC Headshots online after having procrastinated for weeks on getting a corporate headshot for an upcoming event. Melissa was wonderful to work with. I couldn't have asked for a more comfortable environment. It's cliched, but I am that person who hates to have my picture taken and dreads seeing photos of myself. Melissa made things so easy that we had photos I loved in the first five minutes. She really knows how to make it seem easy and coach you into a flattering posture. I saw my photos tonight, and I feel like I got a real bargain. Tons of great shots, wonderful service, and a speedy turnaround." - Rachel L., previous client

"The creativity and patience Melissa demonstrated shooting a child actor was outstanding! Great suggestions for positioning, and good ideas for lighting that were not obvious choices to us. Melissa's selection of what to wear were spot on! However, I think what sets Melissa apart is her comfort with children. My daughter loved working with her and was energized by Melisa's upbeat attitude." - Kay T., previous client

"This was the first time I've had my photo taken since high school senior portraits. I felt so comfortable and the photographer (I had Melissa) helped me pose and walked me through the whole process. The pictures turned out great, and I can guarantee it was because of how much care and precision Melissa took in taking great pictures. It is totally worth it to have your corporate headshots taken professionally and you should have them done with Washington DC Headshots. 10/10 recommend. I've already encouraged my colleagues to seek them out." - Marissa B., previous client

"I had a wonderful time working with Melissa. This was my first experience taking professional pictures and Melissa made the experience fun and comfortable! Melissa was energetic and patient- encouraging me to experiment with different backgrounds and poses. I am very very happy with the photo results. Thank you Melissa! I would highly recommend Washington DC Heashots." - Julia W., previous client

"A wonderful experience! I made appointment with Melissa, and she was very professional and helpful. Every image is beyond my expectation. The work is pretty well done in a professional and quick manner. It would definitely be your first choice for headshots in DC area. Highly recommended!" - Deyang Y., previous client

"We were lucky to have both Kristina and Melissa on my daughter's shoot. It was easy to see that Melissa has been well-trained and has worked closely with Kristina for some time. Melissa is professional, confident and has the same attention to detail that Kristina promises to all of their clients. There were so many great photos from which to choose - I highly recommend either one of these talented photographers." - Tina E., previous client

"After reviewing a few places online, I selected Washington DC Headshots and I couldn't be more pleased! I worked with Melissa during my shoot and she was wonderful - she really knew how to pull out a natural smile/shot. Great work!" - Taylor J., previous client
