During the session, Tony will review the images with you one-by-one to help you decide which images are most beneficial to your personal brand.
We will also set up an online proofing gallery for you. Share the gallery with family or colleagues for feedback, then simply make your 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. We 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, we'll get to work retouching stray hairs, blemishes, and softening character lines. Let us know if there's any particular concerns you'd like us to address during the post-production process.
After retouching is complete, we'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:

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.
We'll work with you to help find the right looks during your session. We like the men to have a variety of jacket/shirt/tie combos and for the women some options of 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 and no need to be seasonal; everything from t-shirts to sweaters and light jackets can work. Have some fun with this, if you feel your wardrobe is missing something then go shopping! 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 highly recommended for all women. The cost for makeup during your session is ~$100. The makeup is applied specifically for the lighting we use to give you a very clean simple look. We do touch ups and will add subtle changes to the makeup as the shoot progresses. 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. The studio will be available up to 30 minutes prior to your session in order to get makeup started.
We don't recommend makeup on men, but our professional retouching usually covers any issues that may arise skin wise, so there are no worries in that dept.
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". Your makeup artist will help make sure it’s shoot ready.
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.
