If you are looking for an overly retouched glamour head shot, I am not the photographer for you. I will not get rid of every wrinkle or every spot because casting would hate me if I did. Your agent would hate me if I did. It does not serve you to have a head shot that confuses casting when they see your tape or you walk into the casting room and it's not the same person!!! I will provide you with head shots that look like you and will therefore earn you repeated auditions and respect from casting, assuming you do your job, of course. THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE.



Children/Tweens Actors

Children should have little to no make up.  Agents and casting directors want kids to look like kids.  Hair should be styled naturally but nonetheless, well styled


Adults/Teens for BOTH Actors and Corporate

Make up and hair can literally make or break your head shot, so be prepared and make the most of your session!  If you are not comfortable doing camera-ready hair and make-up yourself...let's discuss your options.



I do extend a $20 discount to subsequent children and parents.  Family members may not “share” a session.  



I'm typically booked 3-8 weeks in advance. If you are in a rush, reach out to me and if at all possible, I'll do my best to make it work or put you on the wait list.


Finally, once you have booked your session, do not worry, I will provide you with all the details you need to make your session a success, including wardrobe prep and make-up options.  YES, I do highly recommend makeup for almost everyone. I invite and encourage you to plan wardrobe ahead and email me with your choices.  I can't stress the importance of this enough!  I am happy to edit them with you.

The preparation is all done in advance so that on the day of the shoot there is no stress…we can just have FUN!  



$100 + tax non-refundable deposit reserves your session date and time and will be applied toward your session fee on the day of your shoot.  I understand things happen.  If you must cancel, please do so with at least 72 hours notice. We will then apply your deposit to a rescheduled date within 60 days of the notice.  Less than the 72 hours notice or if you simply don't show up to your scheduled appointment, will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.

The balance of the session fee is due on the day of the shoot and must be paid in cash or credit card, unless otherwise arranged.  Please note that credit cards will incur a 2.9% fee.  Thank you.



Your referrals are the greatest compliment to my work.  As my thanks to you, you will receive a $15 credit towards your next session for each person you refer that books and completes a session.  This is especially great for people that tend to change their hair often or child actors, since they need new shots approximately every 12 months, depending on their growth and physical change.


RETURNING CLIENTS (Adult head shots only)

If you have shot with me in the last 4 months, and you have changed your look drastically forcing the need for new shots...your session fee is $295.  I get it!



I want you to know you are in good hands.  Read what my clients and industry professionals have to say here and here.
