Headshot Session Process

Before your session:
  • I'll send you clothing tips and recommendations.
  • We'll meet at the agreed-upon location.
  • I'll review your clothing and make suggestions.

During your session:
  • I'll help you choose your looks.
  • I'll offer you guidance throughout the session..
  • I'll offer prompts throughout the session that will help project natural confidence.

After your session:
  • You'll receive a private online gallery of photos to choose from.
  • You'll receive a selection of high-resolution digital files based on the session you or your company choose.
  • Retouching is available and included in some session fees.

My goal is to make you feel safe and comfortable while creating natural, confident images.
I want you to see your true self reflected back in your headshots.
Many clients have returned to me for new headshots over the years, for changes in appearance or simply a refresher.

I don't feel very comfortable in front of the camera.

I understand how nervous you may feel about your headshot session.
I used to be the same way.
I would hide anytime I saw a camera.

Headshots can feel vulnerable and awkward, and it's not always easy to "just be yourself" with a camera in your face.

But if you're feeling nervous, I want you to know that you're not alone.

And I want to help you feel as relaxed and at ease as possible during your session.

My goal is to create a headshot that presents you in a professional and approachable way.

I want you to look relaxed and natural, not stiff or posed.

That's why I take the time to create a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere during your session.
I'll chat with you throughout the shoot, and I'm always happy to take a break or give you a few moments to collect yourself if you need it.

I've honed techniques over the years to help calm your nerves and help you feel as natural and at ease in front of the lens as possible.

So if you're feeling nervous about your headshot session, don't worry. I'm here to help you feel your best.

Here are some tips to help you feel more relaxed during your headshot session:

  • Wear clothing that makes you feel comfortable and confident.
  • Bring a friend or family member to the session for support. Yes, your furbaby is welcome!
  • Take deep breaths during your session, it will help relax you and your facial muscles.
  • Bring your favorite music to play during your session. Music is always welcome!

Do you have any tips for the clothing I should bring along?

Here are some quick tips on what to wear to your headshot session:

  • Bring a variety of pieces. It's always better to have more to work with, so bring a few different outfits that you feel confident in.
  • Consider your audience. What message do you want to project in your headshot?
    If you're a business professional, you might want to wear something more business or industry appropriate.
    If you're an actor, you might want to wear something more versatile that can be styled for different roles.
  • Choose colors that flatter you. Most colors translate well in headshots, so go with colors that you feel good in.
  • Keep the logos to a minimum. You want the viewer of your headshot to connect with your eyes first, not your clothing. If you do wear something with a logo, make sure it's subtle.
  • Layers are your friend. Layers can help you create different looks and add some interest to your photos.
  • Accessories can help you add personality to your photos. Bring along any jewelry, scarves, or other accessories that you think will look good on you.
We will work together during your pre-photo consult to choose the perfect outfits for you. We can use FaceTime or Skype, or you can send me photos of the different pieces you're thinking of bringing along, and I can help you narrow down before your session date.

We are a corporation or organization looking to create headshots for our employees.
Do you offer bulk headshot services?

We offer corporate headshot sessions and bulk pricing, depending on the number of people involved in the session.

Quotes are based on the following factors:

  • The number of headshots needed

Headshot Station

A headshot station is a great way to get headshots for your entire team at once. We can set up a station at your office, conference, or other event. This is a great option if you need headshots for a large number of people.

Some Questions to Consider:

  • Are you looking for a simple, clean headshot or something more organic?
  • Do you have a specific look in mind?
  • Do you need candid photos?
  • Do you want to show off your company's culture?

Behind-the-Scenes Photos

We can also take behind-the-scenes photos of your team at work. This is a great way to show off your company's culture and the people who work there.

We believe that using real photos of your team is the best way to connect with your audience.
Your headshots should be authentic and trustworthy, and we can help you achieve that.
