STUDIO SESSIONS

PROCESS

It takes collaboration to create a dynamic PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOT or PORTRAIT. So, along the way to capturing your brand matching image, expressions are reviewed and adjusted during your studio session. Once that perfect balance between confidence and approachability meets your approval, your selections are retouched and uploaded to a password protected webpage where you may download the high resolution files to your devices for your unlimited use.


WHAT TO WEAR

Clothing

If you feel comfortable in it, you’ll photograph well wearing it. But, few guidelines to keep in mind while perusing your closet for your headshot or portrait outfit include:

1) Solid colors are safe choices for their timelessness;

2) T-shirts, tank tops, collared shirts, sweaters and jackets create dimension;

3) Subtle textures and patterns add interest.

Still in doubt? Bring options. We have a steamer in the studio to solve any wrinkle issues that arise in transport.

Jewelry

Jewelry is best kept to a minimum. Studs or small earrings and simple necklaces are fine, while anything hanging or chunky will draw too much attention away from you.


MAKEUP & HAIR

Women

Makeup is recommended for women and applying your own is acceptable. But if you choose to hire one of our professional makeup artists, allow an hour ahead of your scheduled shoot time for the makeup to be applied for our studio lighting.

If a major hair transformation is in order, mention this prior to your session so we can arrange for the appropriate hair specialist. Otherwise, simply come to the studio hair ready.

Men

Since all released images are retouched, makeup is not recommended for men. Alternatively, if being photographed with facial hair, men might consider bringing their own personal grooming tools to the studio for any needed adjustments.


BACKGROUNDS

White, black, and grey are standard background options, while custom brand identifying backgrounds can be added in post for an additional fee. If a custom background is preferred, just let us know when scheduling so we can coordinate ahead of your appointment.



SCHEDULING & PAYMENTS

Securing Sessions

Headshot and portrait sessions are secured with a non-refundable 50% deposit payable at time of scheduling with the balance due on the day of the shoot with Visa, Mastercard, American Express, cash or checks.

Image Retouching
