Miami Professional Headshots
The Headshot Specialist
A streamlined menu is the sign of a high quality, specialized restaurant. You can trust that each dish will be prepared expertly by a focused chef with attention to detail. Your headshots should be given that same respect and focus.
It’s for this reason that I limit my headshot sessions to 2 per day.
I want you to relax and feel confident that you’re getting my full attention, without either of us looking at the clock or counting “looks”. It’s my job to coach you into an expression that conveys the perfect balance of confidence and approachability, so trust me to focus on angles, positioning, lighting, hair, and all the other things that make a good headshot. We might arrive at the perfect headshot right away or it might take us a little bit of time, but we’re not going to finish until we get the shots that are right for you.
I don’t want you to stress about choosing the right headshot session time or which package includes 3 images or 6 images and a secret handshake, not to mention trying to understand a million retouching options. When it comes to final images, everyone needs something different, so you’re in control of the final cost based on how many images you need. Each image you purchase comes with professional retouching services and will be delivered to you within 10 days.

YEAH, OKAY. WHAT MAKES YOU SO SPECIAL?
Fair question. In most industries there exists two tiers of service. There is the "generalist". We all know the handyman, the general practitioner, the neighborhood mechanic. When it comes to more advanced needs, the second tier comes into play: "The Specialist". The antiques restoration expert, the neurosurgeon, the Ferrari Mechanic. I'm a headshot specialist. I've focused my study and practice on the art of headshots. I love coaching your facial expressions and providing you with images that you'll love by getting to know you and your personal brand.
I'M NOT AN ACTOR. WHY DO I NEED PROFESSIONAL HEADSHOTS?
Time to pay attention. While it's true that headshots have been traditionally reserved for celebrities, authors, and that super intense gamer guy; times they are a'changing. No. They have changed! The contemporary world is centered on an online presence. In Business, those crucial first impressions are more frequently occurring based on a cursory image browse of LinkedIn, Google, and Facebook. Let's make them look twice! Schedule your session, today and put your best look forward. If you're asking why, take a look at your own habits. How much time are you spending skipping over photos that don't grab your attention?
BUT, I HATE HOW I LOOK IN PICTURES!
First of all, that is NOT a question. Or maybe there is a question deep in the core sentiment of that statement...Regardless, one of the primary duties of any photographer is to help you get past the fact that you're standing in front of a camera. If you're tense in front of the lens/lights, it's my job to help you feel comfortable and guide you into the right expression. By the end of the session, you'll be surprised that you can have fun in a process that can be intimidating to a lot of people!
OKAY, FINE. HOW DO I KNOW WHAT TO WEAR?
Great question! You're already ahead of most people by realizing your outfit is important. The old adage "Dress for the job you want" still rings true, so as soon as we have scheduled the date and time of your session, you'll receive a prep guide. Inside, you'll find some tips on what to wear, how to do your hair/makeup (if applicable and you've opted out of a professional hair and makeup artist.) The end goal is for you to bring your favorite outfits and shirts that fit the guidelines and your goal for the shoot. Together, we'll go through the items you brought to present the best look!
WAIT...WHAT!? PROFESSIONAL HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Yep! A professional hair and makeup artist recommended for all my clients. This is to help touch up your hair and accentuate your natural beauty with makeup designed specifically to bring out your natural look. We're not slathering on gobs of the stuff. We're just going for a simple "I woke up like this" look. I used "NATURAL" twice, for a reason! No heavy eye shadows or liners and no crazy accent colors. These don't translate well for most headshots. Also, opt ifor a liquid foundation which gives your skin a more dewy look, rather than a powder that can give you a more "caked on" appearance on camera. If you have any questions about it, please give me a call!
