Solid Colors - Keep is simple with WHITE or BLACK options. These are timeless and will go with any website or design. If you want to add some color to the background, we can work it out when you arrive, just let me know.

Environmental (Location Only) - I can use white or black solid colors, or choose a background in or around your area that adds interest and helps accentuate your face.


During the session, I’ll will review the images with you one-by-one to help you pick the winners that are most beneficial to your personal brand. We’ll shoot a few frames, review the images, make adjustments to your wardrobe or expression, then shoot some more. I do my best to make this as painless as possible, and keep the mood very casual.

At the end of your session, I will set up an online proofing gallery for you. Share the gallery with family or colleagues for feedback, then simply make your final selections right through your proofing gallery. 


Each photo you decide to purchase is $50. You can purchase as many retouched photos as you like, this puts you in control of your final price. I’ll will keep original files for 1 year, so you can always come back for more images later. Group Rate includes one retouched image per person. 

Once you've made your selections, I'll get to work retouching stray hairs, blemishes, whitening teeth, evening skin tones, and softening character lines. Let me know if there's any particular concerns you'd like addressed during the post-production process.


If your headshot is for business, the old adage of "Dress for Success" rings true. Although, if you're not a suit & tie kinda person, and the jobs you're after don't require it, stick to what makes you comfortable. Keep in mind that current headshot trends are to shoot horizontal and crop pretty tight, concentrating on expression, so avoid plunging necklines or strapless numbers, these have a tendency to look as if you aren't wearing anything at all. The only rule is that you have to love it! If you don’t feel comfortable in it, that'll translate into the images while shooting. 

I'll work with you to help find the right looks during your session. We generally like to have a variety of jacket/shirt/tie or blouse/dress/jacket combos. Keep jewelry to a minimum, studs or small earrings work, and simple necklaces. If you wear glasses and have multiple pairs, then bring them along too. If you have any doubt about whether something will work or not just bring it. Layers are fantastic; everything from t-shirts to sweaters and light jackets can work. We have a steamer in the studio, so we'll be able to sort out any wrinkling for you.


We work with some of the top local boutiques that can help prepare for your headshot session. Makeup for the session is not required but can be beneficial. The makeup is applied specifically for the lighting we use to give you a very clean simple look. Once you book your session, we'll send links for the MUAs we work with and you can make scheduling and payment arrangements with them directly if you decide to go that route.


We ask that everyone come in with their hair ready the way you would like to present yourself. We want your hair in your pictures to be as close as possible to the way you look on a "good hair day".


After retouching is complete, I'll send a link to download your retouched images along with the final invoice. The link is active for 30 days, giving you time to forward the download link to your agency, public relations officer, marketing agencies, talent agencies, and anyone else who may request them.


You'll receive three file sizes for each retouched photo:

Small - Optimized for use online with social media and similar websites.

Medium - Higher resolution for full-screen use and compatible with Retina and other high resolution displays.

Large - Full resolution perfect for printed advertising materials, comp cards, and wall displays. You can also downsize this image for use in just about any media.

I’m happy to accommodate specific photo requirements. Just provide the pixel dimensions needed, and I'll include it with your final delivery.


Packing gear, traveling to, and setting up on location takes significant time. As a result we typically only offer location sessions for groups of three or more and build a location fee into the price. However, if you really want an individual location session, give us a shout and let's discuss it.
