Here are a few headshots tips to answer any questions that you may have. Although these headshot tips may be helpful, if you don’t see the answer to your question, please call me, and I’ll be happy to help. If you need headshots for all the people in your organization, please call me since there is a substantial discount for volume headshots. Having employees that are out on travel, or work remotely can create scheduling issues, so we have created a number of ways to customize our services to ensure that all your employees can be scheduled.
DO YOU RETOUCH?
Standard retouching on headshots includes improving skin texture, removing blemishes, under eye darkness and fine wrinkles and lines. We tone down any excessive redness in skin tones, brighten your smile and your eyes, and you’ll love the way you look!
HOW LONG WILL THE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION TAKE?
It depends on which portrait package you choose. Please see pricing options for more information on that. Please allow some time for initial consultation before we start so that we can discuss your needs, wardrobe, etc. After finishing the portrait shoot, we will review the headshots with you (and usually during the shoot so that we can see if we need to make any adjustments). We assist you in picking the best headshots. You leave happy and tell all your friends, family and coworkers about how great we are.
WHEN WILL I GET MY HEADSHOTS?
Most often the same day (we don’t like homework). But if the portrait studio workload is heavy it may be the next morning. Images are delivered electronically or on disk or flash drive in some cases. We understand deadlines.
TELL ME ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION?
Please arrive ready. For men, shaven (as appropriate).
For women, with hair/makeup already done.During the portrait session, we will periodically review images with you in case we need to adjust posing, lighting or so we can identify what is or is not working. Ensures that your final chosen headshots/photographs will be exactly what you want.
WHAT CLOTHES SHOULD I WEAR TO FOR MY HEADSHOT?
I’m a believer in keeping it simple and being authentic. So wear clothes that are in keeping with your sense of taste and style. Please think about how these images used when you are choosing your wardrobe.
Men: Solid jackets, colorful ties ’No tie’ can also be a great look with a sport jacket
Women: Black /dark colors are slimming, but bright colors also add a LOT of pop. Keep to solid colors if possible.
WHAT NOT TO WEAR FOR MY HEADSHOT?
Avoid busy patterns, logos, plunging necklines and pastel colors (they often wash out skin tones)
SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING?
Bring anything that helps us help you. Bring specs if you’ve provided those by your company, or examples of styles you like, or web sites that we need to match.
WHAT’S YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
Cancellation Policy. Since time has been reserved especially for you, if you need to cancel an appointment, we will need 24 hours minimum notice, unfortunately, if we do not have sufficient notice, we reserve the right to bill you for the full amount of the scheduled service.
WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE MY HEADSHOTS?
If you are unhappy, then we will gladly reshoot, retouch or refund.
