What should I wear?
In the weeks prior to your session, we ask that you search for several clothing options for the photoshoot. You recommend select clothing that you love and love yourself in, and that works well in your intended field. Choose clothing that is cut and colored in a way that is flattering to you. For women, make sure your bra is seamless and won’t make an indent on your skin or shirt. We recommend that you choose clothing that is of good quality, as it will reflect on your professional image. We recommend you have at least five outfits with you to choose from. Iron your clothing and pay attention to other details, such as frayed threads. Your wardrobe will help you to feel confident and at your best during the shoot. For more information, please refer to our blog post about preparing for professional headshots
How should I prepare?
Be good to your body! The easiest way to look healthy and vibrant for your shoot is to actually be health-conscious on the days leading up to the session. Make sure you avoid alcohol, partying, or any other activities that could leave you feeling exhausted and dehydrated. Eat lots of healthy fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins and water to perk up your skin and body. We also suggest that you spend time affirming yourself and your body before the photoshoot.
What should I do about makeup and hairstyle?
It is ideal to style your hair and fix your hair in place before the photoshoot. I recommend natural makeup that perfects your skin tone and enhances your features. I can provide recommendations for makeup artists upon request. Feel free to refer to our portfolio for inspiration and our blog for more information. Here are 10 Tips to Prepare For Your Professional Portrait and 10 Makeup Tips.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
Your appointment can be rescheduled without charge up to 48 hours before the shoot. The deposit is not refundable.
What are the High-Resolution Digital Images?
After your photoshoot you will receive your color enhanced, High-Resolution Digital Images. I will edit out the blinks, blurs, and obvious ‘in-between’ shots, and share for your review all pictures from your session. Each package comes with a certain number of High-Resolution Digital Images that you will be able to download from your online gallery. From your online gallery you will also be able to select your favorite images for Artistic Retouching and the Fine Art Digital Composition. If you want to purchase more images than are offered in your package, please do not hesitate to ask me.
What is Artistic Retouching?
With the Artistic Retouching, I will remove or reduce any imperfections to improve the overall image, both background, and subject. This includes skin and silhouette enhancement. I remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, eczema, dry patches, and erase dark circles. My style retains skin texture while keeping shading and highlights natural. I strive to make my models look their absolute best while still looking like themselves. Please refer to the before/after gallery for examples.
Where will the sessions take place?
Le Studio Portrait Photography NYC has two locations, one in Manhattan and one in Brooklyn. We also offer in-home sessions with identical options and results.
Our Brooklyn studio is located at 74 Verona Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231. The 1,500 square-foot, 16ft ceiling studio has elevator access and easy parking. You will probably be able to park right in front of the building at our Brooklyn location!
Our Manhattan Studio is conveniently located in the center of the city in Union Square, at 873 Broadway, New York, NY 10003. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. It will be a pleasure to help you prepare for a session or find either Le Studio NYC location.
We also offer in-home sessions for an additional cost. Experience a high-end newborn, baby, or family session in the comfort of your own home with equal results. The choice of props, scenic backgrounds, and styling is identical to studio photoshoots. You do not need to worry about lighting, as I will bring professional studio lighting equipment. On-site photoshoots are available for Complete Sessions only, in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. Please inquire for a custom travel fee if you are based elsewhere. I can travel nationally and internationally.
How long after the photoshoot will I receive my photos? Is there a fast turn around available?
You will receive your High-Resolution Digital Images two weeks after your photoshoot. From there you will be able to select your Artistic Retouching and your Fine Art Digital Composition. Two weeks after submission you will receive your retouched images.
A fast turnaround is available for an additional $100 rush fee. We will deliver your downloadable gallery link of High-Resolution Digital Images within three days instead of two weeks. After that, you will be able to select photos for your Fine Art Retouching and can also have them delivered within three days instead of two weeks for another $100 rush fee.
What are my usage rights for the photographs?
You are free to use the images from your photoshoot for your personal use and for self-promotion. Even though Le Studio maintains copyright for all photos, we are very flexible and want you to get the most use out of your photos. Please tag us on social media when you publish your photos!
