The Headshot Process-How Does It Work?
Of all the people coming in for headshots roughly 50% have never had a professional headshot taken. One of the most frequent questions we get is how does this work?
First you book your session online. We make it as easy as possible for you to access the studio calendar and select the day and time of your choosing. The session fee is due at time of booking. This is what covers the time for photography at your session. You will have options of backgrounds and be allowed up to 3 wardrobe changes. The usual headshot Session, will run about 30 minutes so whether you need a quick LinkedIn headshot or a longer multiple outfit session we have you covered.
A few tips to prepare for your headshots: be well rested—if you’re tired it will show in the headshots, well hydrated helps as well. It will also help your skin look great in the headshot. That being said, moisturize your skin but avoid using oil. The lights will reflect strongly if you come in oily, and you will likely request the “shine” be toned down but you have complete control over that. And extra editing charges will apply if you come in oiled down.
Also, it is mandatory that you try on the clothes that you plan on wearing, PRIOR to coming in for your appointment.
Buttons being stretched or sleeves that are too tight, are obviously not the photographers fault and again, if you request extra editing to fix these things, there will be an additional charge.
Make sure you have clean pressed clothes. Wrinkled clothes will make anyone look sloppy in a headshot. Bring a few outfit changes—even if you want just a quick headshot we suggest a few choices—at least ties (men) or a few blouses for women. Solid mid to darker toned colors work best. The focus needs to be on you not the wild patterned tie or dress you are wearing. We recommend 3/4 to full length sleeves. Even if your arms are super toned it’s too much skin—usually a lighter color—and a distraction in the final portrait.
Hair and Makeup?
Some want to go get hair and makeup done before coming to the studio. We have a list of recommendations for hair and makeup and Some of these makeup artists will come to the studio to do your hair and makeup for an additional fee.
At The Session
We will run through a variety of poses based on what you’re wearing as well as your profession as well as your desired outcome. Your expectation must be realistic. Our photographers use experience and posing to accentuate your best features and try to hide your less desired features. However, do not come in thinking that the camera won’t capture what is truly in front of the lense. We want you to be satisfied but that truly comes from having realistic expectations.
We will do a light retouch of the images which includes cropping, lightening/darkening and blemish removal. Extensive retouching is at an additional cost but we’ve found most to be pleased with the light retouch. Then we’ll pop the images into a gallery and send you a link to review them. You will receive 6 images with your Session. If you would like to purchase additional images, you may. Once you make a selection we’ll send an invoice and a download link once the invoice is paid. All of this process usually takes 3-5 days from you leaving the session to paying for your final images.
