All payments (PayPal, Venmo, Google Wallet, SquareCash, or cash for photographer, cash only for hair/makeup) are due in full at the end of the session.


1 hour “student and young artists” session -  $125

This is specifically for students and performing artists who make less than $25,000 a year and need a new headshot.  I’ve been in those places in life and understand the need for a good, simple headshot!  We'll pick out the best look from the clothes you bring and spend 20-30 minutes shooting either indoors or outside.  All photos will be edited and uploaded within one week to our password-protected site for you to view at your leisure.

• 1 outfit - indoor (grey or colored background) OR outdoor, weather permitting

• online editing and proofing

• retouching on 1 photo of your choice in hi-res jpg format

 

1 hour session -  $150 (2017 Groupon deal - NOTE: If you would like 2 outfit changes, the option of shooting both indoors and outdoors, and 2 retouched photos included, I recommend booking the "corporate" session below.)

A basic package for anyone who needs an updated headshot for business or personal use, great for social media and dating websites. We'll pick out the best look from the clothes you bring and spend 20-30 minutes shooting either indoors or outside. All photos will be edited and uploaded within one week to our password-protected site for you to view at your leisure.

Location Shoot - $250

If you have a specific location you'd like to use for a portrait in Cook/Lake Counties or in the Milwaukee/Madison WI areas, let me know!  I love shooting on location - have gear, will travel!

• online editing and proofing

Half-Day Session - $300

For those who have lots of clothes, lots of ideas, and lots of energy!  My favorite way to work, I usually get lots of different and interesting photos from these shoots, which lasts about 4 hours.  This package is ideal for models who want a plethora of new photos for a comp card, or if you are an artist/performer and want to update your professional or social media websites with a variety of looks.  Note: I highly recommend a makeup artist if you are booking this package.  Rates for hair and makeup start at $150/three hours, see "extras" below for details.

• 4-5 outfit changes, we will shoot for 3-4 hours

• online editing and proofing

• retouching on 4 photos of your choice in hi-res jpg format

• all hi-res edited images from shoot on cd or sent online via WeTransfer

For examples of our Half-Day Session, please see our Models Gallery

 

Half-Day Session on location - $350

Same as above, only I come to your house/office in the Chicagoland area!  If you want your kitchen, piano, living room, or garden as part of your shot, we can do that. Note: I highly recommend a makeup artist if you are booking this package. Rates for hair and makeup start at $150/three hours, see "extras" below for details.

 

 

Extras:

• Hair and makeup:  $150 for women (3 hours), $100 for men (includes a hair trim for the guys if needed).

• Additional photos:  $25 per photo not included in package price.  Note:  Retouching is included in this price, please let us know if you desire the untouched” file for your use.

• Travel:  Please contact us for rates outside of the Chicagoland and Madison/Milwaukee areas.

 

Preparing for your shoot:

• Make sure to get plenty of rest the night before.  I’m an excellent retoucher, but not a miracle worker.

• Bring a variety of clothes. Solid colors are best - avoid patterns and stripes as they can to be distracting. Look for flattering necklines, try to avoid sleeveless shirts, turtlenecks, or anything too heavy or shapeless. Layers always work well for headshots too. If we are shooting in the warm months, don’t forget about leather/jackets/favorite sweaters (as long as they are not too heavy-looking). Dark jeans on the bottom are always good, bring a couple shoe options as well. Please make sure all clothes are clean and pressed/steamed. There is a steamer at the studio for touchups if needed. Jewelry - simpler is better, unless you usually wear a lot of it!  Big earrings and chunky necklaces can distract from YOU, however, if that's a signature look for you, then by all means wear what you usually do to feel comfortable and look your best.

• I highly recommend using a makeup artist for your shoot, especially if you are booking the 2 hour session or half-day session.  However if you prefer to do your own makeup, please come hair and makeup ready.  Bring your makeup bag - especially important is face powder.  Also bring a brush/comb, hairspray, and whatever other tools you might need to touch up your look upon your arrival to the studio.

• Goes without saying, but please be on time.  The studio will be open 15 minutes before your allotted time, I encourage you arrive early to get settled, relax and organize your clothes.

• If you are booking a half day session, bring snacks, caffeine, or whatever you need to keep your energy up!

• Cancellation policy:  Please allow 24 hours for a cancelation so your session time can be rebooked with someone else at the studio.  I do not encourage this habit, but I also understand life happens.  If you get a last minute booking, gig, are feeling under the weather or have an emergency to tend to, please let me know as soon as possible.  Rebooking is on a first-come first served basis, so keep this in mind if you are under time constraints and publication deadlines.  Thank you.
