FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many images do I get with the session?
You can order as many as you like. Some people order one some people order five. My pricing is structured so you can order the amount that serves you the best. High resolution retouched images are 75.00 per image.
Do I have to book through the scheduler?
No, not at all. The online scheduling is there for convenience. If you'd like to book your session by contacting me, by all means send me a message. Just note that the times in the scheduler are live, if you see a time and date that works for you, the fastest way to sequire that spot is to book the session online. There is the possibility of you emailing with your desired time/date and another client securing that slot via the scheduler.
Is a deposit required?
Not necessarily, if you book through the scheduler I require a deposit at the point of booking. However, if you'd rather not pay a deposit, just contact me to book your session.
Do you offer discounts?
I offer savings for group bookings. If you can get 2 or more people together to book on the same day. I can offer you discount off each session. Contact me to discuss the rates, short answer is... the more people you can get in on the same day the less you all pay.
I do offer the ability to remove the proofing gallery stage. This means we pick the image(s) at the studio during the session. This subtracts $50.00 total from your session, if you plan to go this route please inform beforehand.
What if I don't need much time and just one outfit?
Great question, as you can see, I don't really charge for my 'time'. Time to a certain extent is irrelevant. It takes a lot of skill and preperation to be able to deliver something fast, so if I can get you what you need in 10 painless minutes, compared to 1 hour... it shouldn't cost any less. For this reason, I don't have limits on time or clothing, if you need to take your time and want to try on outifits, that's great. If you just have one outfit and want to be in and out in 15 minutes, we can make that happen too.
How long does a session last?
This all depends on our expectations. I've had sessions as quick as 15 minutes with very happy clients and I've also had 2 hour sessions with a ton of options. I block the sessions for 2 hour time blocks however rarely do we even get close to that 2 hour mark. Usually by 1.5 hours the subject is tired. I would say the typical session is around an hour.
I'm not photogenic
Well, that's not a question but I'll play along. I hear this day in and day out. Photogenic defined means to photograph well or to look attractive in photographs. Here's the kicker, photographing well has nothing to do with the person being photographed and has everything to do with the person taking the picture. When a person is confident and not thinking about how they look, they emit beauty and become their best self. You just need a photographer that is going to help you get there.
WILL YOU DIRECT ME?
Yes. You are in very good hands. I have excellent tips and tricks to make you look and feel your utmost best. I also shoot every session into my laptop, this way we can review the images together to ensure we are on the same page the entire shoot. This makes the process more of a collaboration and it also allows you to take ahold of your branding. When you leave the session, you won't have any questions on how it went. You'll know and you'll be happy because I won't let you leave until you are. ;)
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Keep it simple. Bring as much clothing as you want, you might not wear every item but it's better to have options. I have a place you can hang it all up, and change. Remember, when you're picking out clothing options to bring consider how they look from the chest up. Typically the photo will be cropped on or above the chest, so focus on the shoulders and the neck line of the outfit. I prefer clothes that give a clean, defined. As mentioned, I shoot every session straight into my computer so we can review them together on a bigger screen. If you have a outfit that doesn't work, we'll know within the first few shots and so we can quickly move onto another top and not waste time or energy on a top you won't be choosing. Once you book the session with me, I'll send you to a more detailed page with clothing information.
SHOULD I DO MY OWN MAKEUP AND HAIR? DO YOU HAVE TIPS?
For men, come as you are. I highly suggest men do not wear makeup. If you are concerned about darker circles under your eyes, blemishes or anything else… don’t worry. Retouching is like digital makeup, it’s much easier to clean it up in post. If you wear makeup, we will see it, so keep it off.
For women, If you choose to get your makeup done by a professional, I highly recommend going with one of the specialists I've teamed up with. Makeup with is $95.00, if you are booking more than one person, that fee will drop to $85.00 per person. Contact for group rates. If hair is needed (simple curling, smoothing etc), there would be an additional charge of $50.00 (vs. $85.00). If you're interested in setting up an appointment with them just prior to our session, you can let me know once you book. The makeup artist will meet you at my studio.
If you plan on going elsewhere, or doing your makeup yourself, that is completely fine. I will send you more information and tips prior to the shoot. To be brief, keep it simple, makeup fads will date your headshot, a natural look is timeless.
CAN YOU SHOOT AT OUR OFFICE?
Providing that your office has a suitable space for the setup of an on-location studio, then absolutely, YES. Contact me and inquire about the On-Location TEAM PORTFOLIO SESSION and we can start figuring it out.
DO YOU OFFER GROUP DISCOUNTS?
Absolutely. Pricing will vary depending on the size of the group, if you require in-studio or on-location and other variables. Contact and inquire about the TEAM PORTFOLIO SESSION, with a rough estimate of what size of group and if you’d prefer to come to me, or I came to you.
DO YOU OFFER A NEW HIRE PROGRAM?
Yes. For companies who book the TEAM PORTFOLIO SESSION, I offer a discounted in-studio new hire rate.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
