The Portrait Pop-Up

The Portrait Pop-Up offers mini portrait and headshot sessions at your place, or fun events open to all. We’re based in the San Francisco Bay Area and often shoot on the road. We built our packages to be the most efficient, fun and affordable way to get a portrait that you love, whether it's for your LinkedIn headshot, dating profile, website, social media or blog, you deserve to get that photo without breaking the bank.

You can expect a lifestyle portrait with a modern aesthetic, featuring natural light and a unique location as a backdrop. If you have a crew (colleagues, professional group, friends, you name it!) who might be interested, reach out and we’ll organize the rest. Check back for upcoming SF portrait events open to all on our events page too.


Tory Putnam, Founder and Photographer

Tory Putnam started The Portrait Pop-Up in SF as a passion project after realizing family and friends wanted a quick, professional portrait or headshot where they felt like themselves (without: a bridesmaid dress, sunglasses or random-hand-around-the-shoulder). She decided the answer was a fun, comfortable experience that you can join with your friends, paired with the ease of just buying a ticket and showing up. Since, she’s partnered with businesses, professional groups and even groups of friends to host custom, private portrait sessions at your place. Tory hosts Pop-Ups in the San Francisco Bay Area and on the road.

When Tory's not shooting portraits, she's working with brands to capture photos that achieve all marketing needs, whether it's web imagery, advertising or social media. She's worked with brands like Athleta, Smitten Ice Cream, Bare Snacks, Brit+Co, Yes To, Shipt, and more. You can view her projects and learn more about Tory's brand work here.
