We can host you at the studio or we're happy to set up at your office or event location to accommodate groups. We can use your office environment as the backdrop or we'll set one up that looks like a studio. Rates vary based on number of individuals and total shots needed. Additional fees may be added such as travel, set up, equipment, makeup, etc. Use the Contact Form to request a detailed estimate.
Retouching - $45/image
Photo Editing - $120/hour
Moving Head Shot - $100
You are responsible for your own wardrobe for your head shot session based on the look(s) you need. We strongly recommend selections with clean neck lines and minimal to no jewelry. Tank tops and v-neck tees work great for basic looks. Light jackets for a layered look. Business looks should be pressed and sharp. We recommend against busy patterns, ruffled collars, awkwardly fitting shirts, excessive buttons/buckles, or anything that distracts from the head shot. Light jackets, blazers and suit coats work well for a layered look as long as they're treated properly (pressed and lint-rolled).
Deposit / Cancellation
A 50% deposit is required to confirm every session via online payment, which is credited to the session fee. The balance is due at the end of your session payable by cash, check or credit card. A cancellation of your session forfeits the deposit.
We understand that things occasionally come up and require a need for rescheduling. Your deposit is transferrable due to rescheduling as long as you provide us with one week's notice. The rescheduled session must take place within 30 days of the original shoot date. Once 30 days have passed your session will be considered Cancelled.
Late Arrival / No Shows
We recommend you allow adequate time so that you arrive on time. Your shoot time is just that, your time. Being late deducts from your shoot time. If you have a 90-minute session at 10:00am but show up at 10:45, you have 45 minutes of shoot time remaining. It’s simple as that. It will be considered a cancellation if you fail to show during your shoot time and your deposit will be forfeited.
Retouching / Photo Editing
Photo editing and retouching are not included in the session fee unless stated in the estimate. The following outlines the differences between retouching and photo editing. Hair and makeup services make this process much more efficient.
Retouching ($45/image): Includes basic blemish removal, light skin smoothing and minor flyaway taming.
Photo editing ($120/hour): Includes more complicated edits such as wrinkle removal from fabrics, hair adjustments, background changes, etc.
Any client under 18 years of age is required to be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, and they must remain on site during the entire session. No exceptions.
We love our studio space. We’ve hosted clients ranging from The Bachelorette to NASCAR drivers (and their car), so we have plenty of space to work with. In addition to our two 20x40x14 cyc walls, our clients and guests have a private dressing room, makeup rooms, and a comfortable lounge area with wifi.
Reshoot / Refund Policy
We will offer a reshoot or refund if we have a technical problem where your images are not retrievable. However, simply stating that you don't like your photos does not constitute a reshoot or refund. We are very consistent with our lighting and editing results so please take a look at our portfolio. We crop images so that they are aesthetically appealing and interesting. If you find a number of images in your gallery where the top of your head is cropped, I assure you it is NOT an error. Your head shot should not look like a passport photo.
