1. Handshakes & Hellos
When you arrive, I’ll shake your hand, grab you a coffee (or a water, if you prefer) and we’ll start going through your wardrobe options. I’ll ask you to bring 5 – 10 different looks (usually just tops for headshots) so we can have a variety to choose from.
2. Hair & Makeup (Optional)
For those ladies who want their makeup done professionally, my in-house hair and makeup artist will get to work giving you a photo-ready makeover that accentuates all your best features.
We don’t typically recommend makeup service for the fellas, but do offer it as an option if you’re concerned about problem skin or glare. Regardless, we’ll make sure you’re camera-ready!
3. Ready, Aim, Shoot!
Once you’re feeling comfortable and settled in, we start snapping photos.
I’ll encourage you to experiment with different looks, emotions and angles, on the hunt for the perfect shot. You don’t even have to think about it!
As we go through your session, we’ll stop periodically to review the shots we’ve taken on a big screen. You can see what’s working and change what isn’t. I’ll need you to speak up and tell me what you’re loving and hating – so don’t pull any punches. I can take it, and this is all about you.
4. The Edit
When we’re all finished with your session, we’ll review the images that have made it to our final cuts, select the ones we love, discard the ones we don’t and send all the keepers into an online proofing gallery.
You’re emailed the link and password to the proofing gallery before leaving the studio so that you can take a closer look, share, get some feedback and choose your favorites for retouching.
After you’ve had some time to review on your own, you can choose your favorite images for retouching and printing, which is handled by Cloak & Dagger (my trusted retouching partner) via your online proofing gallery.
Why Cloak & Dagger? Put simply, they offer the best quality and service of any partner I’ve ever worked with and consistently bring my clients the best results I’ve found anywhere in the industry. You’re in great hands!
The digital copies of your retouched images will be delivered to you via digital download.
If you have chosen to purchase the full buyout of your session, all of your high-resolution images will be delivered via digital download – or you can come by the studio to pick up a flash drive.
