Everyone needs a great headshot!

I'm going to let you in on a little secret...

But in today's connected world...

...Where people get to know you before they meet you face to face, a professional headshot is absolutely necessary.

The Process for Your Best Ever Headshot Session

This is your time. We will take as much of it as needed to deliver results that exceed your expectations. This is not a headshot factory.


This prep call via Zoom will give you a chance to meet me and discuss your specific goals to ensure your needs are met. I can also make wardrobe recommendations.


Think of me as your director. I'll be with you every step of the way, coaching you through the session so you look your absolute best.


We will review your images together at the end of your session and I'll be there to help you select the best images for your needs and goals.

Blown away with the quality
