Are you starting out as a new graduate from Michigan Tech?
Do you need to get a passport picture before you travel?
Are you looking to update your current headshot?
No matter your reason, I am excited to provide your Upper Peninsula professional headshots! I serve Houghton, Michigan and the surrounding area including Copper Harbor, Ontonagon, and L’Anse.
Thank you for valuing yourself enough to have your professional headshots taken.
There is a time and a place for selfies, but this is neither the time nor the place.
I know you are super busy, so I keep things super simple!
Professional headshots begin at $149 which includes two images with commercial release. You have the option to add additional images after viewing your portraits.
Whether you want your headshots on location or with a studio backdrop, I can help! I even have portable studio backdrops available to bring on location!
Available backdrop colors include: white, textured gray, black, and robin’s egg blue.
What is the process for professional headshots?
After we select a date and sign your contract, I will provide a PDF guide to help you prepare for your headshots. This includes suggestions on clothing, hair and makeup, and more!
Your headshot session will take approximately 30-45 minutes. I take at least 20 images with a variety of expressions and poses. Immediately after the session we will take about 15 minutes to review your images and select your favorites. No worrying about whether any of your images turned out here!
There are a number of reasons I love allowing you to select your favorite images right after your session. First, it’s a huge confidence boost for you to see just how great you look straight out of the camera, even before color correction and retouching. Second, you receive your images much quicker (generally within 5 days!) because I only spend time editing the images you know you love!
What are you waiting for?
Please fill out this short form below and I’ll be in touch within 24 hours to schedule your professional headshots!
What should I know before my headshot?
Do you have a studio or do I choose my location?
If you have a specific location in mind I am happy to accommodate for environmental portraits / workplace scenes. At this time I do not have a studio location, but I do offer portable backdrops to provide a studio feel wherever you are!
Do you charge a travel fee?
I don’t charge any travel fees forheadshot sessions that take place in Houghton, Keweenaw, Ontonagon, or Baraga County. While I love working anywhere in the Upper Peninsula, there is an additional charge for sessions scheduled outside of these four counties.
Can you help with wardrobe?
OF COURSE! Wardrobe can make or break having a stylish session. In the weeks leading up to your session I encourage you to send me snaps of what you plan to wear. You will also receive my Headshot Guide PDF to help you select and/or purchase the best outfits for your session.
Do you offer hair and makeup?
Like wardrobe, hair and makeup is important! I can recommend a stylist but this is not an included service at this time. Most opt to schedule hair and makeup on their own.
Will you pose me? I’m not a model.
I walk you through everything from start to finish! Come relaxed and ready to have fun!
Do I know anyone you have done portraits for?
Probably! After this, head over to my gallery page to see who you know as well. It will also give you an idea of what YOUR gallery will look like!
How do I book and what’s required?
The best thing to do is fill out the form above to get started!
If you have any questions, you can call or text 906.523.9286, or you can email email@example.com
