Headshot Photography Questions

Here are some of the questions we get regularly about our Baton Rouge based head shot photography of many genres from Business, Pageant and Model portfolio building.

Q. How do I book my headshot photo shoot?

A. This couldn't be easier, you don't even have to call me during your busy day or send an email and wait for a reply....... I know you are busy so I have set it up so you can choose a date and a time online and book it all online at any time of the day or night. Just go click here BOOK NOW!

Q. Where is your studio?

A. My studio is in Baton Rouge, Louisiana just off Sherwood Forrest exit about two minutes from the I-12 interstate. The full address will be sent when you book.

Q. Can I just drop in for a headshot session?

A. I am at the studio by appointment only as many of my shoots are on location.

Q. Can you come to my office?

A. Yes! For businesses that have ten or more team members or employees that would like new headshot, I will set up mini studio in your place of business to make it even easier for your team.

Q. What back drop colors can I use?

A. Usually I will shoot with three backgrounds as standard. White, gray and black. These three usually cover all needs for corporate, pageant and performing arts headshots. I have such a huge variety of backdrop colors though, it would take way too long to list them all. If there is a specific color that you would like or if the color needs matching to other headshot already shot for the business, please let me know in advance and I can make sure I can do that for you.

Q. Do I get the digital copy of the image?

A. Yes, you get full resolution digital copies of the images you choose/purchase so that you can use the photo on any websites you need, including social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Q. Can I buy prints from you?

A. Yes, you can buy prints directly from the gallery where you download your images from and they will be delivered directly to you.

Q. Will my headshots be edited?

A. I offer three levels of re-touching and editing for headshots. I do NOT do editing and retouching myself. All images are sent to professional retouchers to have an expert complete the work. The only images that will be edited/retouched are the images you choose/purchase.

Q. What is the difference between "A Look" and "An Outfit"?

A. A look is usually the change of a single garment or accessory to give a change to the look. It could be the addition or removal of a jacket or tie, maybe removing a tie or changing the color of a shirt or blouse. An Outfit is the change of multiple items at one time. Mini sessions include different looks but outfit changes take too long for a 30 minute session, so we recommend anyone that require outfit changes should look to book a standard session.

Q. Can I bring a makeup artist and hair stylist to the shoot?

A. For standard headshot shoots and portrait shoots, yes. For the mini headshot session I do not recommend it as 30 minutes does not give enough time to change hair and makeup. I don NOT allow any use of aerosols or sprays in the shooting room. Please complete all of that in the front room.

Q. Can we do Hair & Makeup at the studio?

A. No. Please arrive with your hair and makeup complete no earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled photo shoot time. I shoot many sessions in a day so there is no time to complete hair and make up in the studio prior to a shoot. You may set up for hair and makeup changes during the shoot.
