Back in the day, your first impression to the world was in person and face to face... NOT anymore.
Your social media pages and websites are the places people go to find you and your headshot IS your first impression. Let us help you make the best first impression ever.
There are many people who feel they take terrible pictures or they are anxious about pictures. I completely understand because I’m one of those people who would rather have bamboo shoved up my fingernails rather than get in front of a camera. I have one rule and one rule only when it comes to creating a great headshot: BE YOU. If you’re smiley be smiley. If you’re more serious be more serious. If you’re a grinner, then grin. It really is that simple; just be you and I'll take care of the rest.
People say constancy is the key to success. When it comes to your branding and business images we couldn't agree more. Wether you bring your staff to our studio or we take our studio to your location. We make sure the images we produce for you and your team will be consistent in lighting, posing and editing. Our goal is to produce images that represent you and your brand in the best possible way.
To make sure we provide you with exactly what your business needs we provide a free consultation and customized quote.
Our individual headshots start at $75. Our packages range from $225 to $450. The cost depends on the number of looks and backgrounds you would like for your shoot.
What should I wear for my individual headshot?
Your clothing should reflect your use of the image and for your intended audience.
If you are using the image for more of a conservative use it's best to wear clothes that are timeless and not trendy. For men I would stay away from short sleeves and wear a collared shirt. For women I would stay away from too low of a neckline and patterns.
If you are using the images for casual use I would wear clothes that show off your true individual style. Make sure you are true who you are.
Can I buy printable digital files?
You absolutely can buy digital files! Headshots are typically digitally intended more than they are physically intended. Because your head shot could be used as small as a business card or as large as a billboard. We give you full rights large format files. The images are your to use in anyway, except for resale.
How do I choose my images?
We try to have as fast as possible turnaround on our headshots sessions. Right after our session we go into the view room and go though all the images we shot and pick your favorites.
How long does it take to get my headshots back?
We do a three day or less turnaround on individual headshot sessions.
What if I have to cancel or reschedule my shoot?
We understand life gets crazy and stuff happens. If you have to cancel your shoot or move it to another day you just have to let us know 48 hours before your shoot. We will move the shoot to another day.
If you cancel or try to move your shoot within 48 hours your session will not be rescheduled and your session fee will be forfeited.
GROUP/STAFF HEADSHOT - FAQ
What is the rate for group headshots?
No one business is alike. Because every business has different needs we individually quote each group base on number of employees, location of the shoot, the number of images and other factors.
Do we receive digital files of our images?
Typically we deliver digital files to our clients. Because your images can be used for so many uses we find our commercial clients need the images in a high resolution digital format.
If you need prints for your office or other uses we can provided them to you as well.
Do we come to your studio or do you come to our business for the shoot?
We do BOTH!
We have some clients who will schedule different blocks of time for their employees to come to the studio. An example would be we have the owners tell the employees they have between 2pm to 4pm Monday and 9am to 11am on Tuesday to come to the studio. That way we can accommodate everyones work schedules.
We have some clients who need us, due to the size of the company and time, to come on site and shoot their session. For those clients we bring lights, backdrops and any other gears we need to make sure the images we shoot on locations are just as amazing as the ones we shoot in our studio.
What should we wear for our group images?
When taking group images it's important to show continuity and consistency throughout the images. Not only should the lighting and the posing be consistent, but clothes everyone wears for the shoot should be too. Your clothing sends a definite message about the type of business you are.
If you are suit and tie type of company, like a law firm or insurance agency, then it is important to wear nice professional clothes.
If you are a company, like UPS, who's uniforms are part of your branding, then your images should be of people in those brown uniforms.
If you are a company with many facets like doctor's office, then you might want a variety of looks. You might want the nurses with one look, the office people with another and the doctors with their own look.
If you are having trouble deciding on your look we can help you.
Do you have to do the editing or can we have someone else edit our images?
It is no problem if you have an in-house editor or a marketing company who does your editing and you would like us to just provide you the RAW images.
How do we choose our images?
Our preferred method is an in person view session at our studio. We understand this is not alway practical with large groups or out of area clients. For clients who can not make it to the studio we send an online proof gallery to make your choices from.
If someone is missing for the shoot or we have new employees and we shoot them at a different time, will their images match the other images?
If we shoot your session indoors using artificial light then YES we would be able to re-create the lighting and feel from the first shoot.
If we are shooting your images outside there is no way to guarantee we could re-create the same images. The reason is the lighting conditions will never be the same or will the look of the location.
