Studio Portrait Session

You are encouraged to bring a minimum of 4 of your favourite options for clothing in order to capture a diverse range of portraits and headshots.

Depending on look, I will shoot in a horizontal format. If you need vertical shots or shoulder length shots as well, just let me know.

Shots come up instantly on a monitor for our viewing during the shoot. We will have ample opportunities to review the images and adjust during the session should adjustments be necessary to achieve your desired results.

We will inspect each shot together one by one after the shoot to determine its viability. We will reduce down the final shots from about 250 shots to about 30 final shots that you have approved.

In this manner, you will know exactly what we have achieved as we have gone through the entire session together.

I want nothing less than your total satisfaction with the outcome so you must convey to me anything you would require, or like to add, before the shoot ends.

 

Top Tip

If you feel your wardrobe is incomplete then don’t hesitate to go shopping. We will keep the tags in place and you can return the items you don't want after the shoot.

 

 

Hair and Makeup


Women

I would ask everyone to come in with their hair ready the way you would like to present yourself. However, you could have your hair changed during the session if you wish by putting it up, pulled back, in a hair bun, etc.

Arrive with light makeup. This way, we can start naturally to give you a very clean look and add a touch of makeup during the shoot should you prefer a darker look as well. So bring your goody bag for touch-ups.

If you prefer to skip the natural look, then apply your everyday makeup before you arrive.


Men

Come in with your hair ready the way you would like to present yourself.
