Professional Headshot

FAQ

Why should I book my headshot session? 

New career on the horizon?

New career already under your belt?

Is your current headshot outdated? 

Are you using a non-professional photo as your headshot? 

Maybe you're going for a different style? 

You don't feel like your current headshot is quite "you" anymore?   

Maybe you just want to have a few different options for different opportunities? 

There are many reasons to update your professional headshot, and there are many different parts of you that make you "you". 

Do we shoot in your studio, or somewhere else? 

That is completely your preference! My studio is always available for straight forward portrait sessions, and I also have a ton of great outdoor areas here too. But if you're a professional fisherman, let's head to the water! If you're a real estate agent, let's shoot at one of your properties. This session is all about you, your career, and your interests. 

How many outfits can I bring? 

We'll likely shoot for about an hour, so 1-3 outfits is standard. That being said, your outfit(s) should match your personality and your career, fit you well, and accentuate your best features. 

Should I have my hair and makeup done? 

Ladies, hair and makeup is totally optional, but is also a great idea. I have a great makeup artist I work with often and I highly recommend her; I'd be happy to provide her information upon request. If you decide to do your own makeup and hair, just be sure that it's you and keep in mind that makeup photographs about 40% lighter than it looks in person.

 

But if you're a guy, then for sure   

What if I don't know to pose? 

I am going to put you in the best light, step back to make my camera adjustments, and see what you do naturally. If I can tweak your position to improve the photo or your look, you bet I will! But if you're doing something that looks great don't be surprised if I just keep shooting.

I want your personality to shine, so we'll work together to make sure that happens.

Should I bring anything with me to my session? 

You're welcome to bring anything that shows off your personality and interests. Do you BMX professionally? Bring that bike. Are you a party planner? Bring something that lets your clients know you know how to throw a good party. Let's have some fun with this session!
