Your portrait will be captured in your work, home, or another environment. I come to you so that you can be more comfortable in a familiar environment, which will yield a more natural portrait. Other locations are available but may result in a location fee for use of that area or facility.
Do You Retouch?
Yes, we do! Standard retouching on portraits includes improving skin texture, removing blemishes, under eye darkness or puffiness, brighten your smile and eyes, and smoothing of wrinkles and lines.
How Long will the Photography Session Take?
After initial on location setup, (usually 30 minute setup time) the session time will depend on which package you chose (see package pricing) and if there are last minutes changes to the photography session. For women, to shorten the time of the photography session, please arrive camera ready with your hair, makeup and proper attire ready to shoot. For men, please arrive shaven (as appropriate) hair styled, as you like and proper attire.

What Can I Expect in the Photography Session?
During the photography session, we will stop to review the images to check for your approval and adjust clothing or poses to meet your satisfaction.
What Attire Should I Wear to My Headshot?
Please think about how these images will be used once you get them. Sometimes it best to keep things simple when it comes to clothing and accessories, dark colors work best for both men and women because it will allow your face to stand out in the final image. Try to avoid bright patterns, because the patterns may draw the viewer’s attention away from your face. Other things to avoid: Christmas ties, or your first tie you bought 20 years ago, plunging necklines or bright loud patterns, logos (unless appropriate). Jewelry is important to some people, earrings, necklaces or broaches are great but try to keep it small and simple. Remember, you want people see the most important thing in the image…your face.
What Should I Bring to the Photography Session?
Bring samples of the headshots styles you like. If your company has specific requirements for your headshot, please share those so I can make sure you get what you need.
