Frequently Asked Questions


What's the difference between a headshot and a portrait?

A headshot is a photo that shows your face from the shoulders up, perfect for professional profiles like LinkedIn, email signatures or business cards. A portrait can show more of your body and a piece of your surroundings, which is ideal for websites, advertising, or feature articles.

Can I choose the background for my photos?

Choose from classic whites, blacks, and grays, or vibrant colors. I'll suggest the best backdrop to complement your skin tone, hair, and outfit, and match your brand's vibe.

What do you do to the headshots after we finish our session?

Retouching polishes your headshots to perfection. We remove distractions, enhance brightness, color, and contrast, and tailor each photo for platforms like LinkedIn. Your images are professionally edited to look their best, and a personalized gallery makes it easy to access and select your favorites.

Why is there an additional cost for each image?

Each image requires individual retouching, cropping, and tailoring, ensuring a professional and high-quality result. This detailed process takes time and contributes to the additional cost per image.

How will I receive my headshots and portraits?

Your headshots and portraits will be ready in 2-5 working days after you finalize your selections and payment. They will come via email for download. If you need them faster, please let us know, and we can expedite the process. 

Do you do on-location shoots for groups?

Yes, we specialize in on-location headshot sessions for corporate teams. We bring all necessary equipment, including lighting and backdrops, to your preferred location. Contact us to arrange a session tailored to your team’s needs and schedule.

How should I prepare for my headshot or portrait session?

To look your best for the photo session, ensure you get plenty of rest the night before to keep your skin and eyes looking fresh. Stick to your usual skincare and hair routines to avoid any last-minute issues. Choose outfits that make you feel confident and pack essentials like a brush, an extra shirt, and basic makeup for touch-ups. These simple steps will help you arrive relaxed and photo-ready.
