Professional Headshots

Put Your Best Foot Forward with a Professional Headshot

When it comes to the online business world, a solid headshot is of utmost importance, as it is one of the most powerful marketing tools you can have. Not only is it one of the first things people see when they virtually come in contact with you, but it also provides a glimpse of who you are and what you represent.


How I work

Once you come into the studio, I’ll greet you and we’ll chat about what you hope to get out of the session.  We’ll also go over the clothing items you brought or are wearing – ideally for business headshots we just need shirts and blouses,  unless you also want to do some portraits.  Be comfortable.   For tops, stick to solid colors, they work best, and stick to colors you know work well with your complexion.  Some colors and accessories convey different messages, blazers, jackets, ties, & jewelry, can all be a part of the headshot, or not.  It’s up to you and your style.

Once we go over your wardrobe and what looks we will be creating, we’ll take some test shots to make sure everything from the lighting, backgrounds to any makeup you are wearing or changed, looks good, and everything looks the way you want it to look.  We will preview the headshots on my monitor to help keep us on a good track, especially helpful if we are creating multiple looks.  Photography can have many different effects, and the effect I want for you is to make sure you look like yourself.

Once the session is over, I will email you a proof gallery, typically the same day, where you can make your picks for the retouches.  It’s an easy, fast, and convenient way of making sure you select the absolute best headshots, and it gives you a chance to select more images on a later date should you need additional images.  Once you have the images selected, I will retouch them in a natural way.  I typically don’t get rid of moles and scars, but I do help with bloodshot eyes, some basic teeth cleanup, skin blemishes, hair fly-aways, and other temporary things that you absolutely don’t want in your headshot that you just invested in.  All final images are stored online for a minimum of 1 year so you can download and retrieve them easily.
