A great first impression starts with a great image!
My professional headshot/branding sessions consists of a session (time) to schedule with me and per item individual final images. Studio sessions can last anywhere from 45 minutes up to 2 hours if needed. For example, you will receive a wardrobe consultation, professional lighting, direction, and expression coaching throughout our session to get you looking and feeling great about your images. Above all, we will take a lot of pictures therefore we do get exactly what we are looking for in your professional headshots. And, don’t worry! Most people don’t like to get their photograph taken, but we will have fun along the way.
Since all of the images are tethered into my computer, we have large screen immediate feedback during our entire session. For example, if we get one with your eyes closed, we easily delete that one and keep going. In other words, I use the computer for real time coaching and direction so we get the best headshots during our session.
Once we’re done shooting, I will help guide you through the ins and outs of what makes an image a keeper versus one that we delete. After that, we make final selections of your favorites, they are billed, and sent for retouching. We retouch images for color, blemishes, lint, the occasional wrinkle, and other distractions is included in all final images because nothing kills a great image like poor retouching. In conclusion, professional headshots are important to your personal brand. Don’t leave it to chance and book a headshot today!
Final images are digitally delivered within 72 hours via DropBox or email.

FAQ ABOUT PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOTS
CAN YOU HELP ME? I’M NOT PHOTOGENIC.
Yes! Most people aren’t comfortable with lights and a camera pointed at them. The most flattering positions for your face and body type are coached and directed in the session.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO MY HEADSHOT SESSION?
You should bring more not less clothing options for us to choose from for great headshots. We will choose your outfits together based on desired messaging with color and skin tone considered as well. Freshly pressed suits, shirts, ties, dresses, and blouses are best. Solids and textures work nicely on camera, and the occasional print, too. Extras like sweaters are good sometimes, too, plus you can’t beat a solid turtleneck.
SHOULD I GET MAKE-UP AND HAIR FOR MY HEADSHOT SESSION? WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?
Hair and make-up is up to you. I encourage light makeup and any lipstick if you wear it for moisture is fine just not matte, please. You can bring make-up to refresh and we can add as we go, if need be. Men don’t need makeup for headshots.
WHY IS THE TOP OF MY HEAD CUT OFF IN MY HEADSHOT?
The biggest thing is that it creates more engagement with the viewer. We want people to make a connection with you and your eyes and your expression. We want you to appear confident and approachable and up close. Based upon my experience this is the best course. Plus, everyone knows what the top of your head looks like!
WHY DO I NEED TO CHOOSE MY HEADSHOT IMAGES NOW? DO YOU HAVE A GALLERY OPTION?
No, there are no galleries. Actually, choosing your final images is a very easy thing to do. We select your favorite images immediately after we finish shooting for three reasons. One, we insure immediate quality feedback about your expressions. Two, we can dialogue about specific applications again. Three, you receive your images more quickly!
Even if you don’t wear a coat and tie to work, you certainly need a professional headshot to help tell people who you are!
