Corporate & Professional Headshots

HEADSHOTS FOR THE MODERN PROFESSIONAL

For each session we’ll take as many shots as needed until we get the perfect expression. As we’re shooting we can review how the portraits are turning out and adjust any detail as necessary. Once we get the perfect shot I’ll retouch the selected file and send it to you via email or Amazon Drive. Contact me today to schedule your professional portrait session!

Retouching is included with every selected image from the photo session. My aim is subtlety and to achieve natural results.

Your selected image will be carefully reviewed for stray hairs

Wrinkles will be either removed or reduced. Forehead wrinkles, crows feet, neck wrinkles will be assessed. My philosophy is a balance between realism and reduction!

Acne, red pores, reflection from oily skin and other skin issues will be either removed completely or reduced. Your skin will look healthy and natural; the plastic skin effect will not be used!

Your selected file will be retouched for teeth whitening if needed.

With correct posing this detail should be minimized however I’ll inspect this area and either remove or reduce it.

The image will be inspected for lint, particles, or other objects that might be on your outfit and digitally removed.

All the Time You Need

My approach is to take a groups of photo, then let you immediately review the images. Then we can see if we need to make some adjustments. We’ll continue taking short bursts until we get the photo you love.

Sessions are generally 30 minutes although there is no specific time limit. The important thing is to get the perfect expression. So sit back and relax, we’ll work together to get the perfect shot!

Unlimited Outfits

Have more than one outfit you’d like to try? Bring as many as you’d like! Each session includes 1 retouched file but we can easily add more if you’d like.

The session includes 1 final edited file although more can be added. After the shoot I can send you a link to a private gallery of all the proofs so you can review them at your leisure. Then you can let me know which files should be retouched.
