See your images first. Then buy. What a concept.

Some photographers offer a more-expensive-to-book but arguably cheaper-per-image bundled photography plan. They say, “Ignore the fact you are paying more to book. We give you more images.” But what if you don’t really like more than one? You end up paying more to book their photoshoot, because it comes with more images included. It’s only cheaper if you know you will like them before you see them.

Why not enjoy a full photoshoot experience first. Shoot headshots. Shoot portraits. Shoot full length images. Change your wardrobe. Change your looks. Change backgrounds. Pay only for the photoshoot and get one retouched image included. You have no obligation to order more. You are not committed to paying an inflated price just to book the photoshoot. You decide how many images you want after you see them. And you review images while the photoshoot takes place, so you influence how your photoshoot progresses.

Why not experience a photoshoot that captures you smiling, the serious you, a sophisticated you. Show a strong and confident you in different poses, outfits, backgrounds, and crops. Then choose your favorite from the variety of images. You do this for one reasonable session price. That’s the beauty of the headshot and portrait plan. Learn more

Three headshot and portrait plans are available. All provide a minimum of a two hour photoshoot and provide for multiple looks and backgrounds. A set of retouched digitals are included with full usage licensing for business websites, corporate websites, social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and of course LinkedIn. These custom sessions are focused on you and start with pre-photoshoot planning. Find out more

Additional Images

Think you might want more images from your photoshoot? You’re covered. You can select additional images from your session for $175 each, and that includes a set of digitals, licensing, and retouching.
