I absolutely LOVE to capture that magical moment of honest expression that lives within all of us. Those moments translate into riveting photographs that actually look like you.

Despite your best efforts, did you not get enough sleep the night before the shoot? Do you want to look like you had 8 solid hours of REM sleep? Get you revenge on insomnia and that dumb alarm clock with a fantastic photo retouch! Using a combination of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom, I'll give your photos a subtle industry standard retouch. The cost of digital retouching is based on the tasks and not billed by the hour. If you choose to retouch any additional image(s) not included in your package, just let me know which image(s) you've selected and which retouch option you'd like and you will be billed separately for this service.

I know what it feels like to pay for Headshots only to be unhappy with the end result. That is the absolute LAST thing I want for you. If you are not happy with the photos from your session, I am pleased to offer one free re-shoot. It must be completed within 30 days of your initial session and you forfeit all photographs from that particular shoot. Please let me know about your concerns within 7 days of our shoot.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
I would recommend wearing a solid color tank, shirt, or blouse in a flattering color (for your skin tone) and with a clean neckline. Additionally, don’t wear anything with loud patterns or large logos that will distract from your face. The goal is to look your natural best.
WHAT ABOUT MY HAIR & MAKEUP?
I am not currently providing the services of a hair & makeup artist. I ask that you arrive at the shoot with your hair and makeup done. With children, makeup is optional and totally at the discretion of the adult in charge. Because I shoot using natural light, I ask that makeup be lightly applied and very natural. Hair should not be ostentatious but instead flattering and natural. Ladies, if you want to switch up your hairstyle, that is totally fine. Please be sure that it is a style that can be done in 10 - 15 minutes. Natural wigs or pieces that can be quickly applied are always winners. Men, if you need to shave between takes, bring an electric razor.
WHERE DO WE MEET TO SHOOT?
Once you book your session we'll discuss the details about location.
WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS?
This is one of the downsides to outdoor natural light photography, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature. If she decides to be rude and rain on our parade... or send a plague of locusts... aaaaaack!!! No worries, we will reschedule to another date at no cost to you.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY HEADSHOTS?
Okay, here’s the process: Your headshots will be available for viewing online within 48 - 72 hours after your shoot. Once that time has arrived, I will send you an email with the link to your personalized proofing gallery. Yay!! Once you select the Headshot(s) you would like for me to retouch, I will need another 48 - 72 hours to complete the retouch work. Once it's complete I will upload the retouched photograph(s) to your proofing gallery, and send you an email to let you know your retouch is ready for review. You will be allowed 2 revisions to the final retouch (i.e., can you make my teeth whiter? that strand of hair is giving me Alfalfa...). Once the final revisions have been made to the retouch I will then burn all of your images to a CD or DVD and put it in the mail. You should receive it within 3-5 business days. This entire process can take one to two weeks.
HOW LONG WILL MY PROOFING GALLERY BE AVAILABLE?
I will leave your gallery active for 14 days while you select the photograph(s) you'd like for me to retouch for you. If you fail to select the photograph(s) you'd like to be retouched during that 14 day period I will take your gallery down and there will be a $10 fee to put it back up. I do this because your gallery is not a website, it is meant specifically for proofing. If you would like a gallery to share indefinitely with friends, family, prospective employers, etc., you need a website. I design websites and I would be happy to design one for you!
WHAT IF I HAVE AN AUDITION?
I will happily work with you to expedite the process. Keep in mind that there may be an additional fee depending on how much of a time constraint we are under. This is handled on a case by case basis so please advise me of a time constraint at the time you book your appointment.
WILL YOU PRINT THEM FOR ME?
I'D LIKE TO ADD AN ADDITIONAL LOOK, CAN I DO THAT?
I am fairly flexible when it comes to adding services. If you'd like to add an additional look to one of my packages there will be an additional fee. I handle this on a case by case basis so BEFORE you book please contact me and we'll shape the package to fit your specific needs.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY SESSION WITH YOU?
The best thing you can do for yourself is to be well rested and come ready to have fun! You want your photographs to reflect your truest self, so come prepared to show that. Also, if you aren't comfortable in front of the camera, that's okay! Me either. The way I prepare myself is to get in front of a mirror and make sure that the facial expression that my brain sends to my face is the expression that I'm actually making and that it is one I would want the camera to capture. I discovered that what I think my face is doing and what my face is actually doing are usually two different things... LOL! Also, have a very clear picture in your mind of what you need out of your session with me and come prepared to kick butt. I'll be right there with you!
DO YOU HAVE ANY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR POSES OR SHOTS I MIGHT NEED?
For Actors, I have learned that Agents generally want photos for:
- Commercials - Naturally Casual, Happy, Bright, Friendly, Personable, and definitely Approachable
- Theatrical (TV & Film) – Contemplative, Serious (without the scary), Slightly Sexy but NOT Raunchy
- Sitcom – Fun, Friendly, Less Casual.
- Business – Serious and Authoritative, More Reserved.
Just to stay on the safe side, if you have representation, check with your agent BEFORE your session and ask them what they are looking for specifically from you in this Headshot session. If you don't have representation and you have no idea where to begin, that's okay too. I am always available to do a quick consultation, either via phone or email, to help you more clearly define your image and even help you figure out what colors work best with your skin tone and coloring.
