Headshots are an important investment in your career and often the first impression you will make. But that doesn’t have to make them stressful. I strive to make all of my clients as comfortable as possible to ensure that your session is fun, relaxed and most importantly that we capture YOU in these pictures.
Looking for more than headshots? As digital media expands, your opportunities to market yourself are endless and you may often want professional pictures of yourself to promote your fan page, website or a special project. Let’s talk and we can come up with a plan to create your amazing shots! Whether you want something traditional or something a little more unique to set you apart from the crowd, we can work together to create pictures you will love!
Before Your Session
I like to chat on the phone before your session or even meet up for a coffee/skype before to get to know you. I feel strongly that I get the best pictures when I can connect to my subjects and make them feel comfortable. I’m also happy to consult with you on wardrobe choices and styling for your session.
During Your Session
Your 2-3 hour session is shot either outdoors (my personal fave), in my natural light studio (Austin clients only right now), or both. The look and feel of the session is up to you. You can bring as many changes of clothing as you’d like. Most people choose 3-5 looks. Keep in mind, we are shooting mostly from the chest up so what you’re wearing on the bottom tends not to matter, unless you would like some full body shots. Your clothing should make you feel confident and comfortable.
Feel free to bring your favorite music to the studio or anything else that will make you comfortable.
Professional makeup is not required, but is recommended for women. Please let me know if you need referrals. I recommend that you style your own hair for headshots. I think it produces the most natural result and you’ll be confident you can recreate it for auditions.
After Your Session
Within 48 hours of your session I will send you a link to an online gallery containing proofs for you to view your images and select your favorites. You can share this gallery with family, friends, your agency, management, etc.
Depending on your session, this gallery usually contains anywhere from 75- 150 images for you to select from. As part of your package, you will select the photos you wish to be fully retouched and edited*.
I retouch all of your photos myself to ensure consistency throughout the process so you receive the best final product. For headshots, I prefer a clean and natural look that emphasizes the subject (you!) and makes you look your best. We will work closely together to determine what edits (if any) your photo may benefit from.
Once your final images have been selected and edited, I will email you the high resolutions files to review for final approval. Once approved, you may download the high-resolution files immediately from your gallery.
Please contact me for my latest pricing information. I like to talk my clients through all of their options so we can come up with a package that best suits your needs. The average investment is around $700.
As a natural light photographer, I prefer to shoot outdoors. But if you would like indoor shots, I also have a natural light studio available (Austin only as of now, NYC coming soon). If you have a specific location in mind, let me know (small travel fee may apply for some locations).
I hope I’ve covered everything here. But, if you still have questions for me, I’d be happy to answer. Send me a message on my contact page or call me directly at 917.426.1677.
*Included in every session is complete retouching on your selected images. Images will be retouched per your direction. The number of images to be retouched depends upon which package you choose. If you wish to have additional images retouched (beyond your package) the cost is $50 per image.
