As an actor myself, I understand how important a headshot is and what makes one stand out.
Through a fun and relaxed studio session, I'm here to capture those shots that perfectly reflect your honest self, that character your were born to play, and that unique and wonderful personality you bring every time you enter the room!
frequently asked questions
where is your photo studio?
I currently shoot indoors out of my apartment in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago.
(Since it is a pop-up studio setup, I can also bring my equipment to you for an additional fee.)
There is a private guest room which act as a dressing room where you can hang your clothes and get ready, as well as a private bathroom for your use.
There is also my adorable blind cat who loves to pose for photos with you, but can easily be kept away if you have allergies or discomfort with cats!
can you explain the process a bit more?
All packages include a pre-session consultation. This can either be a Zoom or phone call, where we discuss your goals for the shoot and any ideas you may have, answer all questions, and create a plan for the day.
I will work to make our session as efficient as possible with the time we have. (It will also be fun!) I have no limits on amounts of looks or backdrops - we can try as many options as time permits!
Following our session, you will receive a private, password-protected gallery of watermarked proofs to review. Although these are not downloadable, you can create favorite galleries and leave comments for yourself or me on any photos.
Once you know how many photos you'd like to have edited and keep, you can reach back out to me, and I will retouch those photos with extreme detail.
Your edited photos will then be delivered in a separate gallery.
what should I bring to my session?
Outfit options! Please bring as many outfits as you’d like for this session. I don’t have any specific rules about how many looks we can take - just as much as we can fit in during the time we have! I've often found, as both an actor and photographer, that the outfit I least expect is the one that works the best!
Music! I love to have music playing while we shoot, so bring your favorite playlist!
Accessories! You are welcome to also bring along any additional accessories that you may want photos with. Are you a puppeteer? Bring a puppet! Are you a musician? Bring that guitar! Let's play with props and accessories that can share even more about the awesome person you are.
If you'd like to bring a guest with you, that is certainly an option - I only ask that you give me a heads up since my photo studio is also an apartment and space is limited. Please reach out with how many people you would like to bring and I will get back to you if that's possible.
what backdrops are available?
As a fun alternative, I also have a very 80's cloth backdrop that is light brown with hot pink and blue splashes. It is huge and I am not precious about it, so we can try anything with it!
do you have a makeup artist available?
Liz can offer these services, pending availability. Please email me for more information.
when will I receive my photos?
After our session, you will receive your gallery of proofs within 2 weeks.
You can take as much time as you need to make your selections!
Once you reach out to me with your final edit requests, you will receive those edits within 2 weeks.
Of course, certain exceptions apply (ex. holidays) but I will always be upfront with you and work to get your photos to you as soon as possible!
*Rush service may be an option for an additional fee.
when is payment due?
The remaining balance is due a week after our session, in order to receive your gallery of proofs.
If you'd like more edited photos than are included in your package, they are absolutely available for $15 per additional photo.
