A New Kind of Headshot

When I heard the word “headshot” I used to drift off to sleep… not anymore.

I love headshot days. I get to meet people who are making moves, disrupting markets, and bringing their creative force to industries that are thirsty for talent. It energizes me. And I use that energy to help you relax, make you feel comfortable, and capture your most authentic self.


What You Get


I don’t have an assembly-line operation where one setup is forced to fit each of my clients. I spend time consulting with you to understand your vision, intentions, and needs. We’ll discuss styling and wardrobe. I’ll spend time positioning lighting that best compliments your features.



During the shoot, I’ll offer plenty of coaching tips to help you relax and find your look. You’ll be able to see what’s happening with a live feedback monitor, and we can adjust as we go. After the shoot, we’ll sit and select the final images before you leave, so you know exactly what you’re getting.



All final images are retouched so you look your best. I want to present your timeless essence, not a flyaway hair or momentary blemish.


Just a few looks to make your LinkedIn Profile jealous..
