I needed a new head shot(s) for my business and linked social media accounts. I found John on Google based on his reviews and scheduled my appointment. I do not love getting my picture taken (as most) and John made it very easy. In fact, we got multiple great shots pretty quick. The selection process was made easy as we went through and eliminated what we didn’t like. The final result was three great shots that I am very happy with. Thank you John. I highly recommend and would use again.

The Professional Headshot Process
My professional headshots and personal branding sessions consists of a session (time) to schedule with me and per item individual final images. A typical studio session lasts anywhere from 45 minutes up to 3 hours as needed. You will receive a wardrobe consultation, professional lighting, on-set direction, and facial expression coaching throughout our time together to get you feeling great about your images.
I believe that it’s never too late to create a new first impression!
As a result of our preparation, direction, and on-set feedback, we will get exactly what you are looking for in your professional headshots. And, don’t worry! I will make it fun by comparison to most other photographer’s headshot sessions. I understand many people sometimes don’t enjoy getting a new headshot for all sorts of reasons, and that’s fine. We’ll have fun, and there’s no charge for the bad jokes!
A commercial photoshoot experience
I tether my photographs directly into my computer. We receive large screen immediate feedback which is important. This a technique that commercial photographers use on set for quality control and is a huge timesaver. I want to be able to show you as we go where you can improve your expression and not on the back of small screen on the camera. If I see an expression that I love then I can show you right there easily in large format. You will love this!
We will take many pictures. Sometimes I might even catch you with your eyes closed or an off look. That’s okay because we delete those and keep going with our session. Since I use the computer for real-time coaching and direction, we get the best headshots during our session and the best results around!
I help guide you through the ins and outs and subtleties of what makes an image a keeper versus one that we pass. After we cull through the images, we make final selections of your favorites, you pay for them, and they are sent for retouching. I retouch images for color consistency, skin blemishes, lint, the occasional wrinkle, and other distractions. Retouching is included for all final images. In conclusion, professional headshots are important to your personal brand.
Final images are digitally delivered within 72 hours via DropBox or email.

FAQ ABOUT PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOTS
CAN YOU HELP ME WITH MY HEADSHOTS? 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! I provide a wider crop that gives space around you, too.
Your new headshots will communicate confidence, approachability, and professionalism!
