Makeup for the session is highly recommended for all women. The cost is $125 for a headshot session and includes hair help.
The makeup is applied specifically for the lighting we use and we usually start very naturally to give you a very clean simple look. We do touch ups and will add subtle changes to the makeup as the shoot progresses. If you’d like to start off a little heavier on the makeup we are happy to do that as well, just let us know.
We work with freelance makeup artists and you will be paying them directly, they require cash on the day of the shoot.
We ask that everyone come in with their hair ready the way you would like to present yourself. We want your hair in your pictures to be as close as possible to the way you look on a fantastic hair day and can't have you showing up to the studio like you rolled out of bed. Of course our makeup artist is there to make sure it’s shoot ready and we will discuss what you’d like to do with it and make a game plan at the beginning of the shoot. If you need a major overhaul hair wise or you are naturally curly and want to go straight there may be an extra $50 charge for our makeup artist to blow it out for you. Make sure you discuss this with us prior to your session, so we are all on the same page. *Applies to Ultimate headshot Session
We don't recommend makeup on men, but our makeup artist can provide light grooming for skin and hair on the shoot for $200 if you like. All our work is retouched afterwards, so any blemishes will be taken care of during that process.
If you’d like to shoot with facial hair we’d be happy for you to come in with whatever level of growth you’d like and can shave or trim it down once we’ve gotten the scruff covered. Bring whatever grooming products you’ll need with you to get it done.
Feel free to bring a range of different options for clothing. *Ultimate session only
#1 rule for us is that you have to love it! If you don’t feel comfortable in it, you won’t shoot well while wearing it.
We suggest you bring a range of different colors and necklines. If you have any doubt about whether something will work or not just bring it along. Don't be seasonal; everything from t-shirts, tank tops to sweaters and light jackets can work. We love textures and layers as well and try to keep the jewelry to a minimum. Studs or small earrings work and simple necklaces, anything hanging or chunky will usually draw too much attention away from you in a headshot. Have some fun with this, if you feel your wardrobe is missing something then go shopping and we’ll keep the tags on it in case you’d like to return the items after the shoot.
