What Should I wear?
In the weeks prior to your session, you should search for several clothing options for the shoot. You should select clothing that you love and love yourself in, and that works well in your intended field. Focus on bringing nice the tops, t-shirt, shirt, tank top…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. Choose only clothing that is of good quality, as it will reflect on your professional headshot. 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.
How should I get prepared?
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.
What should I do about makeup and hairstyle?
It is ideal to style your hair and fix your hair in place before the photo-shoot. 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 refer to Lea’s Blog post: 10 Tips to Prepare for your professional headshot and 10 Makeup Tips.
What if I need to cancel or reschedule?
Your appointment can be rescheduled without charge up to 48h before the shoot. The deposit is fully refundable within a week prior to the shoot.
What is the difference between Basic Retouching and Artistically Retouched images?
You will receive all the photos taken during your photo shoot, I will edit out the blinks, blurs, and obvious ‘in-between shots’ that sometimes come with my style of direction. All the images in this selection will be treated with a Basic Retouching, they are cropped, color corrected and ready to print.
Each package comes with a fixed number of artistically retouched images. I can also retouch extra photographs for $25 per image. I like the retouching to look absolutely natural.
Good retouching is imperceivable. My retouching style retains skin texture while keeping shading and highlights natural. I will remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, and dark circles. Furthermore, I will be happy on request to hide double chins and extra weight, as well as whiten teeth or improve the look of your hair by removing frizzy hairs and improving the overall appearance of your hair. I strive to make you look your absolute best while still looking like yourself.
