Make a strong first impression
You only get one chance to make a first impression. Experts say, people make a decision about you by looking at your headshot for less than 2 seconds. Subsequently in this short amount of time, you have to prove that you are a qualified professional. In short, your headshot is many times the first impression for a potential client, job interview or speaking engagement. A strong headshot on your LinkedIn profile, résumé or website can make a big difference for you.
Personality & Strengths
Show personality and energy
One of the most important aspects of your professional headshot is that it must look like you. Therefore, what I strive to achieve with each of my clients is to take the most flattering photo that conveys your personality. Additionally, your photo must shows your strengths and professionalism in a relaxing environment. It is very important for me to know your vision. How you want to be portrayed is one of the things we discuss prior to taking any photos.
Executive branding headshots
Branding headshots are the set of headshots that completes your personal marketing materials. Therefore, after we discuss your goals, my job as your headshot photographer is to create a set of photos. Some clients are satisfied with studio headshots whereas other want on-location portraits at their office or place of work. We offer many packages that will complete your branding.
Your Headshot Session
You will receive your headshots at the end of your session
The headshot session begins with us going over what you want to achieve during your session. Then we will choose the background that fits your needs. Depending on how many looks you want to receive, you can bring different outfits. During the shoot, we may take some breaks to view your photos. Generally, this gives us the opportunity to review and make adjustments on the spot.

Retouching is done with you present so I have your input
I personally retouch your portrait with you present so I have your input. My years of print, negative retouching and Photoshop proficiency gives me the experience to efficiently retouch your photo. For this reason, I will never farm out your headshot to another party for retouching. When we finish the retouching almost everyone comments, “That’s amazing, can you retouch me like that in real life?” Above all, my retouching work is very subtle, keeping in mind that you should look like yourself.
