SESSIONS

Our Process

It takes collaboration to create dynamic headshots and portraits. So along our way to finding that perfect balance between confidence and approachability, each expression is reviewed and adjusted when necessary. Once your brand matching image has been captured, proofs are uploaded to a private password protected webpage where you may select your favorites and place your retouching order from the privacy of your home or office.

Clothing

If you feel comfortable in it, you’ll shoot well while wearing it. But a few guidelines to keep in mind when selecting your headshot and portrait clothing include: 1) solid colors are safe choices for their timelessness; 2) T-shirts, tank tops, collared shirts, sweaters and jackets all work; 3) subtle textures and patterns add interest. So, when in doubt, bring options. We have steamer in the studio to solve any wrinkle issues that might arise.

Jewelry

Jewelry is best kept to a minimum. Studs or small earrings and simple necklaces are fine, while anything hanging or too chunky can draw too much attention away from you.

Makeup & Hair – Women

Makeup is recommended, but not necessary for women. When you choose to hire one of our makeup artists, allow an hour ahead of your scheduled shoot time for the makeup to be applied specifically for the lighting we use. The makeup artist is also be available for hair help. But, if a major hair overhaul, such as you are naturally straight and want to go curly or visa-versa, just mention this prior to your session, so time can be allotted ahead of your shoot. Otherwise, just come to the studio hair ready.

Makeup & Hair – Men

Since all released images are retouched and blemishes are taken care of in post, makeup is not recommended on men. Alternatively, you may hire a makeup artist to provide light grooming of the skin and hair on the day of the shoot. If you’d like to be photographed with facial hair, just come to the studio with the growth you prefer along with your personal grooming products so the hair & makeup artist can get you camera ready.
