The booking and shoot process


You reach out to me

We have a free consultation call

The good stuff begins with a free consultation. Usually on the phone, but Skype or even in-person (I know - gasp - face-to-face) is also do-able. At the consultation, we chatter about you and your brand, what you want the pics for. We get a little bit vulnerable and talk about any of the worries and hesitations you are bound to have. At the consultation phase, we also talk logistics. Will we shoot in the studio or on location? What dates suit you? Do we add hair and make-up? That sort of thing.

We book it in

Once you've decided that I am your 'headshot girl' then we book it babe. I draw up a 'booking proposal' with the dates and final agreed cost and send it to you. You sign it off and we are all a G.O. You will also need to pay your booking retainer, which is 50% of your session cost.

I send you guides and tips to prepare

Before the shoot I will send you 'what to wear' and my 'top 10 tips for rocking your headshot session' guides. Because the more at ease you are, the easier my job is.

It's shoot day!

On shoot day it's best to block out some time before and after your session. To chill. If you have booked hair and makeup this can take about 90 min to 2 hours.

You celebrate because the shoot was awesome

After the shoo, go have a wine. Or a peppermint tea, whatever your poison is. You did it! You rocked it! Bask in your own headshot session glory.

I send you a gallery to select from

After the session, it takes approximately 3-5 days to get your online gallery live. But, it's often less. From this gallery you select your favourite images. You will also receive an invoice for the balance of your account.

I retouch your pics and send them to you

I take your selected images and lovingly retouch them in great detail. Making sure you look ace, but still, like you. This final process takes about 2 weeks. You will have all your images sent to you digitally. They are optimised for web use and for print. So they are good to go for whatever you need. Even Tinder. Yes, I've seen my headshots pop up on Tinder.
