My style is pretty relaxed and casual, but I’m in it 100% and get pretty obsessed with details. I know how important a great headshot is. My primary focus is natural eye contact with the camera that doesn’t feel forced. I’m good at getting that from all kinds of people and don’t stop until we achieve it.
From the time you arrive, we’ll collaborate and work together, talking about options, and often looking at photos as we go. This helps refine what we’re doing and makes sure you’re involved in the entire process.
The thing I hear from almost every client is how confident they feel after the session and that my energy helped get rid of any nerves they had coming in. I’m fortunate that I don’t rely on any photographer “tricks” and am genuinely interested in working together during the session instead of expecting clients to perform for the camera.
The current trend is toward headshots that look "real" and I suggest only doing your hair and makeup to the level you would for an audition or interview. Your headshots will be retouched in Photoshop, so don’t stress about blemishes or minor hair issues. That said, if you feel more comfortable having someone at the session, I can help with that.
Most of the time, you’ll have your proof gallery the same day as the session. You can take your time deciding what photos you’d like retouched. After you choose, I’ll need about 5 business days to get the retouching turned around for you.
I get this question a lot, usually from people who are used to thinking about a certain number of "looks" or outfit changes in a session. I don't look at it like that. I am focused on quality over quantity. We'll work together to make sure you have what you need. If the stars align, that might only mean one outfit change. Sometimes it takes 3-4 changes to find the best look.
My pricing is based on giving you my full attention and talent to produce photos that will work for you and I'll include two retouched photos.
Most people don't want unretouched photos, but if you need them, I will zip up your high resolution proof gallery for you to keep.
If you end up wanting extra photos retouched, I charge a small amount per photo for that.
