If you have any online presence, the answer is YOU! Whether you are applying for a new position, an actor, a CEO, or looking for the love of your life, your headshot is often the first impression you will make. We're in the digital age, and you are judged by how you present yourself online. A headshot is to your personal brand what a professional logo is to a business. Even here in Montana, that great photo of you holding a trout ain't gonna cut it, pal!! We recommend that you update your headshot every two years.
We consistently get results. Your headshot will authentically convey confidence, approachability and will make you stand out from the crowd. We take the extra time to achieve that goal. In our initial consultation, we will get to know what you want to achieve and form a plan to create the look you want. Once you're in front of the camera, you will be coached in posing and how to be your true self in front of the camera. In the end, you'll have an amazing experience and a headshot that is an honest representation of who you are.
Can you do my headshot outdoors or at my office? Yes, we can, although I feel that our clients are best served in our studio. In-studio we have created the perfect environment to achieve the best results for our clients. This is nearly impossible to recreate on location, and many locations do not have a suitable space. There are times when it makes sense logistically or ascetically to photograph on location, and we are happy to accommodate your needs.
Location sessions require site inspections to determine the suitability, and occasionally permits are required.
Ladies: Yes, if you would feel better, but I do recommend having it done professionally and be sure to communicate that you are being Photographed. That said, it's OK if you don't.
Men: No, unless there is a specific reason, follow the advice above for the ladies. Some men do have issues with oily skin, and we keep blotting tissues on hand for that.
Ladies: This one is totally up to you. You know what you want your hair to look like. However, I would recommend settling down those flyaways.
Men: Your call, Dude. If you do, do it about a week before, so you have time to settle into it and let exposed tan-lines fade. I do recommend some extra care with the facial hair grooming details. You know what I mean, ears, nose, eyebrows, and neck.
We highly recommend and personally use Leah at Beauty and Belief; she can be reached at 406.407.0589 for both men and women.
Fun, entertaining, empowering are a few words I've heard from clients. We usually start with a few warm-up exercises to get to know each other and get comfortable in front of the camera. We will coach you through some tips and tricks for taking a perfect photo. When we are done, you can even apply what you've learned to be more confident when someone says, let's take a picture. Besides coaching, we will help you forget all about the fact that you're in front of a camera through a series of specially designed distraction techniques. Throughout the shoot, our main goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible, have a lot of fun, and ensure you leave with great images.
This varies a bit. After the session, you can choose your favorites before you leave. Or we will post a gallery of your top images for you to choose from, usually within 24 hours. Once we know your favorites, we will apply color corrections and facial retouching and deliver them digitally, usually within 48 hours. These timeframes do not include major holidays and weekends. Let us know if you need your images sooner; we can usually accommodate.
Why yes, glad you asked! Now that we've gotten to know each other, it's easy to jump right back in to take more awesome headshots.
So when you've just upgraded your look or changed career paths, show it off and take 10% off your next headshot collection.
