If Omaha Headshot Company is a new brand, why does the logo say “Est. 2006”?

That’s a fantastic question!

Omaha Headshot Co. is the creation of owner Lane Hickenbottom, who also runs Lane Weddings, a premium Omaha-based wedding photography brand. Lane actually began his photography career in 1997 as a student photographer working for the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s student-ran independent newspaper, the Daily Nebraskan. During his days as a student, Lane studied under some exceptional photographers as an intern at the Gillette, Wyo. News Record; Bay City (Mich.) Times, Dallas Morning News, and Lincoln Journal Star.

Lane Continued to work as a staff photographer at newspapers (the Lincoln Journal Star, Sheridan (Wyo.) Press and Grand Island Independent until 2007. Before leaving The Independent, Lane created his own company, Lane Photographics, in 2006.

This is the origins of Omaha Headshot Company.

During that first year of business, Lane photographed his first “wedding for a stranger” along with several shoots for area businesses.

Throughout the years Lane’s style has slowly changed and refined. But his commitment to photographic excellence and desire to help other business people has not wavered.

Fast-forward to 2019, Omaha Headshot Company rose as a new brand encompassing the best parts of Lane Photographics LLC’s commercial and headshot photography. It is built on the strength of decades of experience but the enthusiasm of something new and fresh.

We are excited to bring you Omaha Headshot Co.
