Frequently Asked Headshot Questions

 

How Do I Schedule My Headshot?

Scheduling your headshot is simple. Just click here, submit the form and I’ll get back to you quickly. From there, I’ll contact you and we can figure out a date and time that works for you. I’ll also ask you some questions about yourself and how you plan to use your headshots.


What Should I Wear to My Headshot Session?

Your headshot should highlight your face and your expression above all, so it’s important to wear clothing that isn’t distracting. This means natural color tones work best. Avoid patterns, prints, bright colors and logos. I always advise clients to bring more than one outfit for variety. Bring something formal and something more casual if you’re looking to get more than one look. And, make sure your clothing is wrinkle-free.


I’m Terrified of Getting My Picture Taken. Is There Hope For Me?

Yes. I had one client who said he’d rather get a root canal than stand in front of a camera. By the end of the session, he was feeling comfortable, confident and was happy with his headshots. It’s my job to coach you to confidence, so yes, there’s plenty of hope for you.


How Long Will the Headshot Session Take?

Every person has a different level of comfort in front of the camera. Because of this, the length of the session can vary from 30 minutes to 2 hours. We’ll work together until you get the look you want.


How Will I Know I’ll Like My Headshot?

Your entire session will be displayed on a large 4K TV as I shoot each image. This helps both of us work to get the right look. It’s also part of the coaching process. When you see your images in real-time, it’s much easier to know what works and what doesn’t work. Once we both feel that we’ve got the right look, we’ll go back, review the images and choose the ones you want retouched.


When Will I Get My Retouched Images?

You can expect to receive your retouched images 3 to 4 days after our studio session. If there’s urgency to get them faster, I can work with you to make it happen. Your images will be delivered via a web gallery where you can download them.
