Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the most asked questions about business and executive headshots.
If you have more questions, let's connect - we would love to hear from you!
What should I wear?
● Solid colours are best. Pastels and bold colours work well.
● Well-fitting clothes always photograph best. Avoid baggy clothes, or jackets and shirts that are too tight.
● Wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident. If you feel good in your clothes it will translate to more pleasing facial expressions!
● Stay away from busy patterns. For example, floral and high-contrast pinstripes.
● Avoid bright white shirts or blouses. A white top is fine with a jacket or sweater over it, however by itself can often look too bright and “blown out”.
What retouching is included?
Basic retouching includes blemishes, flyaway hair and teeth whitening. Significant retouching is not included in the initial price but can easily be added on as an additional service.
How many photos do you take?
We'll keep taking photos until you're happy that we have plenty of photos to choose from. We'll look through them briefly during the session to make sure the posing and smiles give you the variety of choices you need.
How quickly will I get my headshot?
Your online gallery will be online 2 to 3 business days after your session. After making your choices, the final retouched images are delivered via digital download. These will usually be available within 3 business days, depending on the number of images being delivered. A rush fee can be applied for a 24-hour turnaround of 1 to 5 retouched photos.
How many people can you photograph in one appointment?
That depends on how much time you have. Our scheduling team will work with your company to plan out the session day(s) in order to accommodate all the employees needing photos.
Can we pick our colour backdrop?
Yes, we carry multiple different backdrops. If you have a style of photos in mind we can work together prior to your shoot to choose the colour that is best suited for you.
What can we expect the day of the shoot?
Our goal is to create a stress-free, fun environment - which always leads to great photos!
We will arrive 60 minutes prior to the first scheduled portrait session. Depending on the arrangement, we will either set up our mobile headshot studio at your location, inside your office for environmental shots, or in an outdoor area of your choice.
Depending on the size of the session we will determine and provide a schedule in the days prior to your shoot, so that everyone is assigned a specific time slot. Whether at your office or an outdoor location, your team will be able to view their images in real time, ensuring everyone walks away happy with their photos.
