Why Our Clients

Love Their Headshots

Have you ever felt rushed during a headshot session or received proofs days later,

only to be disappointed with the results? When you invest in premium photography,

you deserve images that are exceptional in quality and that exceed your expectations.

That's exactly what we deliver.

How Do We Ensure You Absolutely Love Your Final Headshots?

 We achieve this by working closely with you from start to finish. Our process revolves around creating a friendly, non-judgmental, and relaxed environment, while attentively listening to your preferences.

We begin with a friendly chat to discuss your needs, covering everything from wardrobe choices

(what looks great in person might not translate on camera) to how you want to be seen,

your favorite and least favorite features, hair and makeup, and more.

During your session, the camera is connected to an oversized monitor facing the subject,

allowing us to see the photos in real time. This approach allows us to adjust clothing, poses, lighting and expressions on the spot. Together, we will retouch your selected images during the session, ensuring you leave with finalized photos the same day or within a couple of days. This streamlined process eliminates the need for multiple back-and-forth communications.

By the end of the process, you won't just like your final results, you'll love them!
