How should I prepare for my professional headshot session?

When you book your photoshoot you’ll get a confirmation email with a link to a Headshot Style Guide. It has tips and best practices for what personal appearance choices work best for professional headshots. What do I mean by “work best”? I mean looking, at a split-second glance, confident, professional, like you belong in your industry, and clearly have got your shit together (aka: like a boss).

Will you retouch my professional headshots?

I retouch all final headshots super gently so you look great but not Photoshopped. Again—your professional headshot should look like you look in person. Retouching usually involves a little teeth whitening, removing temporary blemishes, reducing shine, etc..

People usually pay for their headshots with credit card but I also accept Venmo and cash.

My company has specific professional headshot guidelines, can you match their requirements?

Most likely, yes. Send over any company headshot photography guidelines and/or sample images and I’ll let you know if I can match it.

Do you recommend I get my hair and make-up professionally done for my business headshots?

Generally no, and for good reason. Building trust and credibility in business requires setting and meeting expectations so it’s important that you look in your business headshot like you look in real life. If someone meets you in person after having seen your headshot and they feel surprised, you’re off to a bad start. That means your hair and makeup target is your everyday best, not “flawless” or heavily made-up. If you do choose to get your hair and make-up done, be sure to ask your stylist for a very “natural” look.
