Frequently Asked Questions
The length of your session will depend on which package you select. Our basic Executive Portrait (headshot) Session lasts about 2 hours.
Depending on the number of images created, you will either view your images immediately after your session or we will schedule a separate in-person viewing, selection and ordering session.
Our Lifestyle Branding sessions are 4+ hours depending on the package you select.
No matter which session you choose, we will keep working until we have created the images of your dreams!
Because our calendar fills quickly we recommend scheduling your session at least 1 – 3 weeks in advance, even earlier if you need your branding photos for an upcoming project or if your session requires extra planning.
We generally suggest you bring a minimum of 3 – 5 outfits to your photo session complete with shoes and all the accessories. Make sure to include that one outfit that makes you feel like a boss and you can take on the world with confidence!
The more choices you have the better because there are times when an outfit may not read well on camera, so making sure you have options is key. Of course, we will discuss all of this with you in detail before your session.

Absolutely! It’s always fun to shop for a few brand new, special items to glam up your current wardrobe especially if you are doing a Branding Lifestyle Session. But don’t worry! We’re here to offer you plenty of guidance, suggestions and support on exactly what to wear (and just as important…what not to wear).
Again, this will depend on which package you select. Even for our basic headshot sessions we suggest at least 3 looks for the different poses we will create.. Of course, there will be many more changes when you book a Branding session. We do not impose a limit on the number of wardrobe changes. Our goal is to give you as much variety as possible during your shoot.
Yes! We have a fantastic team of Go-To professional makeup artists and hair stylists that will be on set the entire length of your photo session. There is an additional charge for this service for our headshot sessions. All of our Lifestyle Branding packages INCLUDE professional hair and makeup services.
Of course! We’re happy to discuss location options for your session during the planning stages.
Whether you have your photos taken in our air conditioned studio or if you are interested in having your photos taken downtown, at a local coffee shop, in your kitchen, the mountains, or the desert, our goal is always to give you portraits that represent your brand authentically.
Each Lifestyle Branding package has a designated number of images included. The Executive Portrait or Headshot session includes one final, high-resolution retouched image with standard usage rights included.
With that said, sometimes it’s hard to narrow your selection to just one or even just a few images. Additional photographs can be ordered at a low, per image additional fee.
Sorry, we do NOT provide unedited images!
Great news! As part of your session fee we offer an in-person viewing and order session appointment set within 4 – 7 days post-session for no additional charge. This allows you to compare each image to make sure you get the perfect expression and pose of your choice without second guessing your final selections.
During the session, we take the time to preview and get your approval this way we ensure you are getting the style, mood, and feel you want in the images we are creating during our time together. Because we work with professional, in-demand makeup artists and hairstylists who we have to schedule well in advance and compensate for their time, we are unable to offer full refunds if this service is used.
The good news – we’ve never been asked for a refund!
Executive Portrait images will be delivered within 3 to 5 days after the selection process. Lifestyle images will be delivered within 7 – 10 days following your reveal, selection, and order session.
We request a pre-paid Creation Fee in advance to secure your session reservation. We understand unforeseen situations come up that are out of your control, so we are happy to reschedule photo sessions with a 48-hour notice.
We ask for a pre-paid Creation Fee in advance to secure your session reservation. The remaining balance is due following your photo session. We accept cash, all major credit cards, PayPal, and e-transfers.
