Style Guide / Headshots

Oh, what shall we wear?! No fear, I have answers, samples and ideas.

I am a huge fan of natural light, so there won't be any studio lights during our session. It will be relaxed and I will do my best to make you feel comfortable. My only goal is for you to love your photo. Your job is to trust me and try to relax as much as possible (it’s hard, I know). You want to look like yourself on your best day, and not look like you tried too hard.
You won't be heavily photoshoped/retouched, I will however listen to your wishes and make light adjustments if necessary.
