How do I prepare for my headshot session?
First, it is highly suggested you get a good night sleep before your shoot. Drink water and allow for plenty of time to get ready. If you are not used to a makeup and hair routine, consider giving yourself a few minutes to apply foundation and a quick style. You’ll also want to pick out an outfit or two! Think comfort, and think layers.
Once we are on set I’ll take it from there, I’ll guide you through some simple poses, postures and techniques that can get us ready for your new headshot.

What are my location options for my headshot session?
For natural light indoor studio sessions, morning and early afternoon to an hour before sunset works best. Same rule apples for indoor on location sessions.
For outdoor sessions the best time to photograph is in the late afternoon when the sun is low in the sky, early mornings are an option also. With the time of year in mind, the best shooting time is 1-2 hours before sunset, depending on the length of your session. If large window light is available on location early booking times are possible.
