The "waist up" look is what most people think of when the idea of headshots comes to mind. This style of portrait is ideal for most applications (email signatures, websites, social media, etc). This style of headshot is focused on your face and expression and is traditionally quite formal.

This headshot setup typically is photographed vertically from the waist up (but sometimes mid-chest or sometimes "gun slinger" crop - aka just below the pockets) or horizontally to just capture the face and shoulders.

Traditional Backdrop Options:
White, Grey, Black

"Wildcard" Backdrop Options:
Black Hex, Green, Black Velvet, a colored Gelled Flash to achieve a variety of backdrop colors

Your pose, outfit, and styling can give people a general idea of your personality before they meet you - this is why it's great to have a handful of different headshot options depending on the purpose of the image.

Outdoor headshots tend to make use of a more natural ambient light which gives them a fresh and more modern flair compared with traditional headshots in a studio setting.

Modern • Fresh • approachable

Outdoor Backdrop Options:
Backdrops will be textures and the ambiance of Phoenixville (small town USA) - some of the backdrops we explore include brick, concrete, nature, walking paths, steps, vines, murals, etc

Infinity Full Length:
Traditional Black or White

Full Length with Wood Floor:
Red & Black Damask, SoHo Ivory brick, Broadway bleached brick, sparkly black or silver or gold or pink, and more

Our full length options tend to sway more toward the portrait side of headshots. This style of imagery tends to capture your personality and tell a story. They also can involve props & instruments for storytelling. Once setup, any of our full length setups can also feature waist up headshots as well. 

These are a perfect add-on to our traditional headshots to use on your social media, dating profiles, or in a professional environment where your personality and hobbies are meant to shine. This style of headshots are also ideal for personal branding and self promotion.

Headshot Experience FAQs

click the fox to make the answer appear

What can I use my headshot for?

Our headshot sessions are perfect for glitzing up your LinkedIn profile, Facebook profile, your vender page on professional websites, inside your book cover, marketing and promotional materials, dating websites, speaker platforms and applications, email signatures, obituary (well that got dark), Twitter profile, YouTube profile, Google profile, Zoom profile, billboard advertising, and the list goes on...

Your headshot session will include a commercial use license allowing you to use your purchased images for self promotion (e.g. print, presentations, social media platforms, etc).

Do you recommend hair and makeup?

Short Answer: Yes.
Long Answer: Yes. Professional hair and makeup will enhance your best features as well as give you more confidence in front of the camera. A great makeup artist will analyze your face to create a look that is fresh, polished, and flattering - this will help downplay any blemishes or discoloration and bring out the twinkle in your eyes. One of the best parts of a professional makeup artist is they have knowledge in prepping your face for the bright flashes we use to create a professional portrait.

You are of course welcome to do your own hair and makeup for your session, but please keep in mind, your normal make up routine may not look the way you expect under professional photography lights. We work with some of the industries best hair and makeup professional!  When booking your session, make sure to select the hair and makeup add on.

So I NEVER wear makeup - do I really need professional hair and makeup? (here's lookin' at you gentlemen)

Short Answer: Yes.
Long Answer: Yes. male or female, anyone can benefit from a little powder and/or hair smoothing. Essentially this will help you look rested and healthy for your headshots which is a key element added into a confident portrait. And while I leave the exact makeup tricks up to the professionals, it may be as simple as some moisturizer and light powder, but the results can take 10 years off your age or 10 pounds off your shoulders! Let's be real - all models, news anchors, and movie stars have their makeup done prior to stepping in front of the camera!

Though you are welcome to tackle makeup application on your own, if you've never worn makeup before, we strongly recommend hiring a professional who has a portfolio with many different faces and has previous work in a media/news environment.

What should I wear for my headshots?

Once your headshot is booked on our calendar, we'll email you a few more recommendations for selecting the perfect wardrobe.

Dress from head to toe (so yes, bring THOSE shoes and skip the ratty tennis sneakers)
Choose options that convey a professional tone that represents your brand or industry
Try on all clothing options prior to coming to the studio - clothing should be fitted for your body type and not be too lose or too tight
Ensure that clothing is clean and pressed - wrinkles cannot be photoshopped
Solid tones are typically best for a professional headshot - but ultimately we suggest you dress to represent your personality, brand, and personal style. So while we recommend leaving the crazy/busy patterned clothing at home, it never hurts to bring a wildcard option.

You will potentially be photographed from HEAD to TOE to the TIPS OF YOUR FINGERS - so every bit of your outfit(s) and appearance is important. Our clients may be standing, moving, and sitting throughout the session, it is important to take into consideration everything you are wearing.

Please feel free to bring multiple outfits to choose from - multiple outfit options can help enhance different poses as well as be featured on different styles of backdrops to give you the best selection of images to choose from by the end of our time together. A well thought out headshot will most certainly give you the best competitive edge and help to make a positive first impression so you can make great leeway towards your goals!

Here are some general tips and tricks for selecting your headshot wardrobe:

Which size session is the one for me?

Great question! We'll ultimately need to know your "end" goal to give the best advice.

Most clients looking for just an "annual update" for their business persona usually find themselves more than content with the Callback Collection. This will give you a handful of options for a quick refresh to your look.

If you have bigger plans in mind, the Influencer Collection is perfect for giving plenty of options to choose from for a website re-do or branding update. The Influencer Collection is also great for those who use social media in their business advertising - we can do many different poses and emotions for you to incorporate for your branding!

So you're a wiz at photoshop, right? Can you use that magic technology to make me look 15 years younger?

A great pose, kick-ass lighting, a tailored outfit, and fantastic hair and makeup will help make you look healthy and well rested - which is the first step to looking 15 years younger in a headshot. And as much as we are a wiz in photoshop techniques, extensive photoshop on your headshots just makes you look like you're trying to cover something up.

Our goal is to provide you with a fantastic experience resulting in a portrait that accurately represents you on one of your best days. Your final headshots should be authentically you.

Tell me about your retouching.

All our headshot and portrait retouching is done in-house by Jen.

All final purchased headshots will be cropped, color-corrected, and lightly retouched. This light retouching includes us working from top to bottom on your images. Though every client and session is unique, generally we remove rogue stray hairs, whiten teeth, fix temporary blemishes (think pimples, razor burn, or marks that typically disappear after a few days), give skin a healthy glow, and enhance eyes. If any photographing gear used to light your portraits is visible in your proofs (light stands, reflectors, etc) these will also be removed.

Our general retouching does not include fixing wrinkles or ill-fitted clothing, removing logos, adding digital makeup or digitally adjusting hair styles, distorting natural features or digital body sculpting, removing under layer garment indentations or marks, or background replacement.

Again, our goal for your headshots is to present you with portraits that are authentically you.

Can I bring my dog? Or props? What about a goat?

We never say no to having you bring your doggo to our studio - especially if your furry friend is part of your brand or the image you're trying to convey!

We also encourage you to bring any props that may help convey the message you're trying to enhance or deliver with your new headshots. We will take many traditional poses without the assistance of props, but you may find some of your favorite images will include "something else." For example - if you're a makeup artist you might bring some of your brushes and a fancy palette (or two). If you're a photographer, you might bring a camera and a lens or a picture frame. If you're a real estate agent, maybe you'll bring along a key or a "SOLD!" sign for a few shots.

I had someone ask if they could bring their goat - if you have a pet goat, run a goat yoga class, make goat cheese, or own a goat farm than sure - that sounds like a super fun addition to your session (but only if they're house broken or you're prepped to clean up after your four-legged friend)!

I'm feeling a bit under the weather, can I still attend my session?

Click here to read our most up to date Covid-19 Policies that align with business guidelines and enforcement for the State of Pennsylvania.

No, and please be honest with us because your decision to attend under questionable health may effect the experience for others if our photography staff gets sick and we need to postpone future sessions. We're happy to accommodate a reschedule for another date in 2021 if it means keeping everyone safe and healthy. Our staff photographs many milestone events and will become unavailable if our staff needs to self quarantine - please don't put someone's "once-in-a-lifetime" event in jeopardy.

Do I have to purchase anything beyond what is included? Or can I just come to your studio for the experience?

There is no product purchase requirement beyond your initial fee.

Post session, you may always add additional digitals or products. We do offer an amazing line of wall art which can be used to display employee headshots or a fantastic moment from your session.  After your initial experience investment, our wall art starts at $1.25 per square inch and our albums begin at $750. Some individuals spend $500 highlighting their headshots or branding images in physical products, others spend $5,000, but the important thing to note is these heirloom products will separate you from the pack of your competitors with their amazing craftsmanship and handmade beauty imported from Italy.

How is this different than DIY headshots or having my friend take them?

We understand the DIY trend is fierce, but unless you or your friend is proficient in posing, lighting, and retouching, we can guarantee we're going to give you a better experience and a better final product (cocky I know, but we are passionate about what we do).

Our sessions are more than just ending up with a snapshot to upload to websites. We believe you are worth more than just a snapshot, and you are worth the experience of being gussied up, posed, and fussed over. Your experience at our studio will ultimately give you a headshot expressing a version of yourself that is the best you can be.

We are experts at capturing different lighting, poses, emotions and ensuring when your headshot experience comes to an end at our studio, you will have plenty of options for all of your social media (and work) sites - your dating profile photo should be different than your LinkedIn profile headshot. Our job is to take and deliver amazing photos - your job is to resist purchasing all of them.

If you ultimately have gotten this far on the website searching for tips and tricks to DIY this yourself - please just remember to leave off the filter that makes your skin look like a plastic nightmare - that's not flattering on anyone.
