How do I prepare for a headshot?

It’s important to get lots of rest the night before coming into the studio. Also, please drink lots of water to stay hydrated.

For men: Do not shave or cut your hair the day before the session especially if you’ve been out in the sun because the color of the skin will be completely different. It’s best to get your haircut a few days before the session.

For women: We recommend to hire hair and makeup artist for touch ups during your session.

How do I prepare for a portrait?

The same as for preparing for headshots applies for portrait sessions. It’s important to stay hydrated and get enough rest the night before.

If you are renting any attire, please make sure to have it ordered and ready in time.

Hair and makeup artists are important to have on site at the studio for touch up purposes.

Should I book a makeup and hair artist for my session?

We highly recommend booking a makeup and hair artist for either of your sessions. If you have any blemishes you don’t want to show up on the photographs, the artists will work magic on you. A good makeup artist is important to have because you will love how you look and it’s easier to retouch makeup that has been done properly and well blended.

When will I receive my photos?

Your headshots will be ready within two business days. Same day turnaround is available for an additional fee.

Portrait photographs have a turnaround time of one week.

Do you offer same day turn around?

For an extra fee we can have your photographs ready within the same day.

Will you photoshop my headshot or portrait?

All collections besides the basic headshot collection includes at least one fully retouched image. A high resolution image gets the colors corrected. A fully retouched image takes more work and time as we retouch the skin, hair and the surrounding area if necessary. There will be an option to purchase additional fully retouched images after the session.
