What kinds of headshot style images are right for you? 

Headshots – ideal for using on social media, for actors,  resume use, corporate websites and more. These sessions are shot from the shoulders up, normally on a white or black background and produce a clean, modern image.
Portraits – more than a headshot, portrait sessions are designed to tell the viewer more about you. These sessions are longer and can be made into something completely unique

Scheduling – Scheduling a session is easy – over the phone or by email – that’s it!  We take headshot sessions by appointment only and a phone consultation is free anytime you have questions prior to booking. We tend to book 2 weeks in advance, so just keep that in mind when planning your session!

The Session – Headshot photo sessions are designed to be fun and easy. As we shoot, we’ll review the images together and by the end of the session you’ll have a selection of favorites to choose from for your final image(s).

Clothing – Wear something that makes you feel confident, but that is also comfortable.  Try to avoid busy patterns, stripes, and neons. Choose colors that accentuate your skin tone and think of layering your clothing. Bring a few options and don’t limit yourself to seasonal clothes.  The most important thing is to be comfortable because when you feel good, you look good.

Hair and Makeup – Having your hair and makeup professionally done are the icing on a good headshot cake.  We recommend having your hair and makeup professionally done somewhere you’re familiar and comfortable with. We have a industry leader and award winning make-up artist that is available for hire.

Your Files – Share and Print Anywhere – After you’ve selected your final image(s), they’ll be retouched and you will receive high-resolution digital files and unlimited licensing for the images.  This means you can use them for printing, posting online and sharing with family and friends – anytime.
