Are You Ready?

So you grabbed one of our coveted event slots? Fantastic! There are a few things you need to know because things run a little bit different compared to our regular sessions. Make sure to read everything on this page so that you are prepared to get the most out of your spot.

What type of lighting will you be using at the event location?

We are bringing our full mobile studio to the location! That’s right, lights, background, image viewing screen and all. We make sure you get the best light, just like in our studio, by bringing it to you.

How long should I expect to be at the event?

20-30 Minutes

Your photo session is 10 minutes, but remember, that is only part of the event! We will have a mirror, hairspray, and a few other essentials – so we recommend showing up a few minutes early to prep right before you get in front ot he camera. Then, the photo session, and then you will be guided through selecting your images. Be sure to leave enough time in your schedule so that you don’t feel rushed! If you look through your images and don’t find any you love, you can get back in front of the camera as long as you have time in your schedule.

What comes with my session?

Included with your headshot event session, you get a 10-minute photoshoot, guided image selection, and a fully retouched digital image. Whether you want to get something more dramatic or more commercial, have a specific idea of how you are going to use your headshots before you come in and you will get the most out of it. After the session, you will immediately see and select your favorite image to be retouched and delivered to you within one week. At that time you will also have the opportunity to purchase additional retouched images at $65 per image. We don’t offer online galleries for event sessions, so be ready to choose your images on the day of your session.

What do I wear?
  • Steer clear of pure white tops. The eye is always drawn to the brightest thing in the image. For your headshot, we want that to be your face.
  • Choose colors that complement your natural coloring. Muted, solid colors are typically best, very bright or neon colors can reflect onto your skin.
  • Avoid anything with busy patterns or big logos. It’s all about your face, your expression, not the clothes.
  • While this is a 1-outfit session, we encourage you to bring something extra to grab a quick second look. A cool jacket, a pair of glasses, something you can throw on real quick and add a little zing to your shot.
  • Make sure you come wearing the clothes you will be photographed in. Bring one backup top if you are having trouble deciding, and show up early enough that you can ask for an opinion and get changed ahead of your shoot time.
  • Your bottom half will not be in most of the photos, but we might zoom out enough for a couple to show your waist, so be mindful of that when choosing your outfit.
  • Jewelry can complement your outfit. Be sure to consider what pieces coordinate with your outfit, without being so loud as to distract from your face.
  • If you are unsure, email us a photo of you in what you plan to wear to [email protected]; we will be happy to give you some guidance. Email must be received at least 24 hours ahead of the shoot.
  • Make sure your clothes are clean and pressed. We don’t retouch wrinkles in clothing, so be sure to have your outfit prepared.
What are my background options?

We will bring a solid background that gives a modern, neutral look to coordinate with everything. We create a lighter or darker color from white to gray using lighting techniques, according to what looks best for you and your outfit.

What else do I need to be ready?

If you have gone through all these questions, you should be pretty much ready to go. Here are a few last-minute things to remember before your session:

  • Plan to arrive ten minutes early. If you are late, you will probably lose your spot. There are no refunds and no rescheduling if you are late. Be on time, be prepared and it will be awesome.
  • Don’t get your hair cut within 48 hours of the shoot. Give your noggin a couple of days to recover from your new “do” before you get in front of the camera.
  • Don’t make any drastic changes to your appearance right before the session. You are going to be setting yourself up for disappointment. 
  • Get a good night’s rest before the session and avoid drinking alcohol or eating salty foods for 24-48 hours ahead of time. This will help you avoid looking puffy and blotchy. Rest, drink lots of water, and come ready to knock it out of the park.
  • If you have any questions about your session or need any advice or help leading up to the date, email [email protected]; we are here for you!
