Make no mistake about it… in life, we are all judged by that first look.

The reality is many companies have a strict policy as to how your image should be presented to represent them and we are in total agreement.  But what if you could satisfy the needs of your company and at the same time satisfy your idea of how you want to represent yourself?

Here’s what makes Enhanced Image so unique…

After the obligatory headshot, we invite you to take off the tie or jacket and do a more informal shot where you have the opportunity to “be yourself” or “let your hair down” so to speak. If the weather is nice, we can even go outdoors to do a few shots.  There is no additional charge for this and you really have the opportunity to get the “best of both worlds.”


I needed a professional “headshot” for teaching at meetings, the practice website, and I also wanted a more informal picture for other websites and social media. I shopped around online for a photography studio. I also considered friends who are good at photography. I came across Terry’s website, saw his work, and his past experience. Then I read that he comes to my location, and sets up the studio in my home. The fees were less than anything I’d been quoted and the results were great. He also spent way more time with me than I expected. Thanks, Terry.

Our Approach

First of all you want to be comfortable in your surroundings. This brings a level of ease and relaxation to the shoot… so we’ll come to you, either at your place of business or your home. Not only does this save you time, but it’s at your convenience.

If we are going to your office, we’ll bring a portable backdrop that sets up in minutes or we can use the ambiance of your office surroundings depending on the requirements of the company.

If we are coming to your home, we can bring the backdrop or use the ambiance of your home office if you have one. We can also do the entire shoot outdoors depending on your requirements. Finally, make sure that if there are some significant others around, let’s do a portrait since we’re there anyway. After all, how many times in your life do you really have a chance to have a professional portrait taken.

Other Photography Services

In addition to executive portraits and headshots, we can also provide you with on-site business photography. company meetings, golf outings, awards banquets, holiday parties, picnics… just about any corporate event you can think of can be professionally photographed at a price that blends outstanding service with affordable prices.   

Here’s a newsflash… even though our platform is based on headshot photography, we love doing families as well.   After all, you can’t be in this business without learning something about photographing families. (Then again, the owner has only been doing family shoots for over 25 years.)  Seriously, please consider us if you’re looking for family portraiture, parties, picnics, etc.  You’ll find the same outstanding attention and service that we give to all of our clients.

About Us

Terry Terchin, founder Pure Engagements

Here’s what we’ve learned… it’s all about connecting and reading people. A lot of photographers can take a great technical picture, but if it doesn’t capture the essence of the subject, then it’s just another photograph.  We always let our clients know that their session is not over until we both agree that this is how they perceive themselves.  It’s not how we think you should look… it’s how you think you should look.

A little bit about me… I was the director of photography and operations for a major Chicagoland photography studio until 2015.  After some soul searching, I realized that it was time to pursue my true passion BEHIND the camera. I love what I do, because every day is one where I can make people happy.

Looking forward to working with you!
