FAQ

Chances are, you aren’t a professional model and have no idea what to do in front of a camera. It’s the photographers responsibility to coach you towards the shots you need. It is important that you actually like the actual photographer. If you and your photographer do not connect, you won’t be able to be yourself around them. That tension will show in your shots. You are trusting them with your most important marketing tool. Take the time to have a conversation on the phone with them, or set up a consultation. Most photographers will do these for free. Ask questions. Get a feel for who they are, and how they work. Find out how they direct their clients. Everyone is capable of looking great in pictures, it just takes the right photographer who is willing to push people through the walls they’ve built around themselves.

Choose an outfit that looks professional and feels elegant. Stay away from large, bold prints, logos and patterns. Solid colors always work best. Keep it simple, do not over-accessorize. Too many extra visuals will detract from your face, which should be the only focal point in your pictures.
Use moisturizer the night before and in the morning and also drink plenty of water 2 hours before the sessions.
Guys please shave closely and slowly before the session. Ladies wear what your consider an "everyday" daytime makeup. Avoid glossy/sparkly/shimmery reflective lipstick and face powder.

Every single person I have ever photographed needs guidance on what to do in front of the camera. Having your picture taken is a very forced and unnatural experience. It’s the photographer’s job to create an atmosphere that you feel safe to be yourself in. I will help take your mind off having your picture taken through my direction. This will allow us to capture natural reactive expressions. 

Absolutely! Don’t worry about that blemish; wrinkles can be softened, and any minor imperfections can be taken care of. The key to good retouching is for it to remain natural. I will not use a skin retouching photoshop plugin that makes people look plastified. Every detail is retouched manually by hand. We will discuss specific retouching concerns and requests during your session.

You will choose your favorite images on the day of your photo session. Retouching can take up to 5 business. The final images will be delivered via email download link.
Additional Edited Photograph – $25/image
Same Day Retouching + $25/image
