We take headshot sessions by appointment only and a phone consultation is free anytime you have questions prior to booking. Most sessions are booked two weeks in advance so you have optimum choices to work within your schedule.
Having your portrait taken should be easy and enjoyable. We'll review your images together and choose your favorites as your final image(s) so all the decision making is done and you leave 100% happy.
What to Wear
Wear something that makes you feel confident, but that is also comfortable and not too form-fitting. Try to avoid busy patterns or bright colors that detract from the face. Feel free to bring a few options and we'll happily help you pick what's best for you and what you intend to use your headshot for.
Hair & Makeup
Having your hair and makeup professionally done is always recommended. Some of our headshot sessions include professional makeup application at the studio, but you are always welcome to come makeup ready.
What You Get
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.
When You Get It
The typical turnaround time is typically under a week.
For any questions prior to your appointment, please contact us. A $125 fee will be assessed for any session cancelled or changed with less than 24 hours notice.
