What should I wear?
It depends on what you will use your photos for. Generally, for corporate or business shots we suggest business formal or business casual. If you’re an actor you may want to avoid clothing that is too eccentric. A great article on what to wear if you’re an actor can be found here.
How many wardrobe changes do I get?
For a single-shoot, the maximum number of looks is 2. Most clients are usually okay with one look since changing burns up their time in front of the camera.
Where are you located?
For full and half day shoots we will come to your location and set up where you ask us to. For individual sessions, we work out of Conyers, Georgia (a city east of Atlanta). Your scheduling confirmation will include the exact location.
Does a duo shoot include individual headshots for each of the subjects as well as photos of the duo together?
No. The Duo package only includes two people per shot. But does not include two separate individual sessions. If you would like both a duo session and an individual session per subject, please schedule them separately (ideally back to back).
How do I pay?
You can pay online when you schedule your session. All fees are required prior to each session.
How long does a shoot last?
Single-shoots last from 30 minutes to an hour. Half-day and full-day shoots that involve multiple subjects can take around 10 to 15 minutes per subject depending on the number of people being shot.
Will I have time to apply make-up in your studio before my shoot?
No. Normally we start promptly and there will likely be a client waiting once your session is complete. Please have your MUA (make-up artist) apply your make-up before you arrive. You are welcome to bring him or her with you for brief touch-ups during the shoot.
How should I prepare for my shoot?
Make sure you’re feeling your best. Get as much rest as possible before the day of your shoot. Look your best. Hair, clothing, and make-up are often key considerations. If you’re in the market for a make-up artist, Thumbtack is a great resource. Pay online prior to your shoot to avoid a delayed start.
How many pictures do I get?
You can select up to 5 of your favorite photos and we will touch them up in Adobe Photoshop. In addition to those 5, you can keep up to 15 of your photos. If you would like to have additional photos retouched, we can do so at an additional fee.
What color backdrops do you use?
Our most popular backdrop color is neutral gray. But we have several options including other neutral colors (e.g. black and white), warm colors (e.g. orange and yellow) and cool colors such as blue and teal.
How soon can I see my images after the shoot is done?
Clients usually receive a link to review their photos within 24 hours.
