Headshot & Portrait FAQ

Session Info:

Booking a session requires a 50% non-refundable deposit before-hand. During the shoot, we will review images as we go, to ensure we didn’t miss anything. Before you leave, you’ll know what we’ve shot. I’ll provide a password-protected gallery for you to review your proofs to select your final image(s) for retouching.

Hair/Makeup:

Men:

I don’t recommend makeup on men. You should style your hair the way you normally do before you arrive. If you want to shoot with facial hair, arrive with it the way you want it. If you want some clean-shaven pics too, bring whatever you need to shave and we can take a break in the session for you to do so.

Women:

Style your hair the way you normally would. Keep makeup somewhat light (avoid powder if possible); you can always add as we go if you need to. I’m working on making makeup artists available for the shoot as an add-on option. I’ll up date this soon with that info.

Clothing:

Bring a range of options for clothing, even if you’re doing the single-image package (that’s one single FINAL image; we can shoot whatever you want within the allotted time). Bring the cl0thes that you feel most comfortable/confident in, as that will influence your shoot! I strongly advise minimal to no jewelry, particularly for headshots. You want the focus on yourself in the image, not the accessories, and they do draw the eye.

Retouching:

Once you’ve chosen the shot(s) you’d like from your proof gallery, I’ll re-touch them and produce the final image for you. I don’t release the originals/high-resolution images for quality control purposes (I’d prefer to handle the image processing personally, if they’re out there representing my work).

Payments:

I accept cash, credit/debit cards, Apply Pay, and Android Pay via Square.
