THE HEADSHOT SESSION
I have a passion for photography, a passion for learning about light, angles, and people. The inspiration that Lake Tahoe gives me every day is exactly what I bring to every single headshot session. I will take your expressions and shape them in many different ways to bring your "persona" out in front of the camera. We will work together to take incredible shots and have fun in the process. I strongly believe that the best results come when you truly feel at ease.
Rule #1: You have to love it! I don't want to shoot anything that you don't feel comfortable wearing. If you don’t feel comfortable in it, you won’t shoot well while wearing it.
I suggest you bring several of your favorite tops. For headshots, you’ll really just need to concentrate on tops, unless you would like some 3/4 shots. Don't be seasonal, everything from t-shirts, tank tops to sweaters, light jackets, suits, ties or anything that makes you feel great when you have it on can work. I love textures and layers, but would generally stay away from crazy patterns. I really like everyone to bring at least 5 options for clothing. People always ask me what colors are best and I really don't have an answer for that. It's better for me to get a visual of something, so I suggest bringing a wide variety of colors, as well black and white. For men I recommend bringing a nice suit.
Remember you will be hired for what your face brings to the camera, not because of the clothing that you are wearing.
MAKE UP / HAIR
It is highly recommended for women to work with a make-up artist. I have a make-up artist if you decide to work with them. If you prefer to do your own makeup, make sure it is light and not too heavy. Make-up should not be overdone. In other words, wear what you consider "everyday" daytime make-up. Try stay away from powder, get base that is not powdery, I want you to still have a glow on your face. Less is more.
Come to the studio with your hair worn like you normally do. Don't do anything with your hair that you cannot repeat on the day of your audition. During the session we will change your hair to a few different styles.
Guys, the make-up artist is available for you as well. Whether you use them or not is up to you. For those who can grow facial hair, come with a full beard or however you like to wear your facial hair and we will shoot that look first. Bring a razor with you so that we can shoot you clean shaven as well.
This is a great option for someone that is looking to get a really good photograph with a clear background. It also suits best for someone that is looking to have a little bit more time with me to get a couple looks. You will get 60 minutes of shooting time with two wardrobe changes. You will have access to your online gallery to view, download and print capabilities, as well your high resolution digital files plus two fully retouched images.
This session rate is $325 for the shoot. A retainer of $200 is required to book a session and save the date/time. This is non refundable and goes toward your final amount. The remainder must be paid on the day of our session.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IF I NEED MORE THAN ONE HOUR?
If one hour isn't enough for you or you are looking to photograph with more than two wardrobe changes, I offer a two hour headshot session. That will give you an extra hour with four wardrobe changes. This session offers a little bit more freedom for us to work. I will be posting all the images in a private online gallery for you. On the gallery you will be able to see the entire photoshoot and select your favorite four photographs to be fully retouched.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
That is a pretty good question. I pretty much accept all modern ways of payment. The most common is through my website. Once you book me and sing a contract, I will be sending you an invoice. You can pay your retainer or the full amount just clicking "making a payment" and voila, done. I also love to work with Venmo, you can write me a personal check, money order or cash.
IT'S POSSIBLE TO PURCHASED MORE PICTURES TO BE RETOUCHED AND WHAT IS THE COST?
Definitely! As many as you want. On your private online gallery you just have to select the extras images that you would like to be retouched and once I received a notification, I will start editing right the way. There is a fee of $50 for each extra image.
