• For corporate headshots please consider whether you prefer a business formal or a business casual look and prepare accordingly.

  • Generally solids work best rather than busy patterns or a combination of both such as a printed dress shirt or top with a solid blazer.

  • Neutral colors are preferred for business professionals. For creatives or dating profiles feel free to bring some bold color options.

  • If you chose a multi look package please bring several options so we can choose together what will be best for your skin tone, hair color and preferred background.

  • Please have your clothing cleaned pressed and ready when you arrive for your session.


  • For corporate headshots please check to see if you have a company standard for the background color/style and let us know in advance.

  • If you do not have a company standard to follow we will consult with you about background colors and styles before your session.
