FAQ's: All About Your Headshot Session
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?
If you choose an in studio headshot session, our studio is in the SONO neighborhood of Atlanta, GA. Located between Midtown and Downtown. With secured off street parking.
DO YOU CAPTURE BUSINESS HEADSHOTS FOR REALTORS, LAWYERS, ENTREPRENEURS?
YES! Most of my headshot sessions are for Atlanta business professionals that need a superior professional headshot for their business. Realtors, Lawyers, Doctors, Chefs, Interior Designers, Yoga Instructors, Life Coaches, Authors, almost every profession you can think of have come through our Atlanta studio for business headshots that help them stand out from the competition. Once you book your headshot session, we will schedule a consultation call to talk about your profession, and how you will be using your headshot images. I'll be sure to capture an image that will express your style, personality, and professionalism that will get you hired!
DO YOU CAPTURE HEADSHOTS FOR ACTORS, MODELS, AND MUSICIANS?
YES! As an actor or entertainer you are your brand. Actor and Model headshots sessions are much different than a business or corporate headshot session. The mood can be much more playful, and casual, even dramatic. These sessions are often shot both inside and outside of our Atlanta headshot studio. Once your session is booked we will schedule a consultation call to talk about your profession, and how you will be using your headshot images.
HOW LONG UNTIL I RECEIVE MY IMAGES?

ARE YOUR HEADSHOT SESSIONS AFFORDABLE?
YES! We offer high quality affordable headshot pricing in the Atlanta market.
WILL THE HEADSHOTS BE RETOUCHED?
YES! All of the favorite headshots images you choose from your online proofing gallery will be sent to a professional photo retoucher at not extra cost.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO MY HEADSHOT SESSION?
People tend to worry too much about what they are going to wear to a Professional headshot photo session. It’s best to keep it simple when choosing clothes. Don’t let yourself get too consumed by it. This is about selling you, not so much about what you are wearing.
Bring stwo to three pressed or steamed solid or neutral colored tops with varied neck lines. Examples: sweaters, t-shirts, collared, button down, sport coat, suit jacket. You don’t have to bring everything on the list, just the items you have or want to buy. Avoid small patterns, small checks, and small plaids. Please avoid wearing a white shirt. Instead, if you must wear white please wear off white, or have blazer or sweater to wear over it.
Mostly the same as above. Avoid overly textured or patterned fabrics. Form fitting wear works best and is more flattering. For a more casual shoot, solid colored camisoles, and neck work very well. Layers are also great.
FOR BOTH MEN & WOMEN
Medium to dark colors-avoid pastels or light colors
When wearing a medium to dark colored suit the shirt or blouse may be a light color
Stick to solids - avoid pinstripes and prints
Avoid bright colors such as red and orange
Short Sleeve not recommended for Business headshots

A conservative business suit in a dark to medium color recommended for Corporate headshots
SHOULD I HIRE A MAKEUP ARTIST?
For my female clients I strongly encourage booking our Make Up artist & Hair Stylist. Our artists are experts at applying make up using products that are better suited and much more flattering for studio lighting. If you choose to apply your own makeup, I recommend a natural look with nothing heavy around the eyes (eye shadows, eyeliners). Be sure to groom your eyebrows at least seven days before your scheduled session. Be conservative with your mascara application. If you choose to schedule our Make Up Artist, please arrive to the studio with a clean face. Please bring any specific colors and products you love with you, the makeup artist will be happy to use them.
HOW SHOULD I STYLE MY HAIR?
Again, our Hair stylist is is an expert and will help you feel your best in front of the camera. If you choose not to use our hairstylist, you should come to the studio with your hair looking as you would on a good hair day.
MAKE UP FOR MEN?
I do not typically recommend use of make up on my male clients. A little bit of clear lip balm to prevent chapped dry lips is usually enough. If you are prone to oily or shiny skin and a small package of blotting paper on hand is always helpful. We do have invisible powder on available on set if needed. If you would like a clean shaven look, Bring your shaving kit with you.
