Do you shoot headshots with natural light or in the studio?

In most cases, studio lighting is often used for corporate headshots. On the other hand, headshots also can be taken with natural light (indoors or outdoors). Nevertheless, we can discuss what works for you.

Where should I use my Headshot?

Compared to before, you may use your professional headshot on many online platforms. For instance,  your company website or on a professional network site like LinkedIn or Twitter. Many times, clients will purchase more that one digital file to use on different sites depending on the nature of the site.

What kind of clothing should I bring to my headshot session?

Overall, bring as many of your favorite outfits as you would like. On the other hand, stay away from big patterns that will take the focus away from of your headshot. Also, bright color will distract the viewer. When you arrive we can discuss what may work best for what you are trying to accomplish with your headshot. Also, we can take portraits with different outfits if you are looking to purchase more than 1 digital file.

When can we do a consultation?

Generally a consultation is before the photo session. Although, I’m happy to have a phone consultation at anytime that’s convenient for you. Due to time constraints though, there is a $50 charge per half hour, for in person meetings. In the event, that you decide to book a session, your $50 will apply towards the session.
