What is Emily’s headshot session approach?

When it comes to headshots, I realize some actors can approach their sessions with hesitation, feeling like this might be some exercise in modeling. Well, it’s not. I like my clients to remember that when we are taking actors’ headshots, we are actors first and foremost. I like to approach our connection with the camera as a collaborative experience, providing the viewer a glimpse into your confidence and capability as an actor, a taste of your authentic self, and a hint of what roles you are interested in playing.

We collaborate together on the day of your session, discussing each role you desire to play, and how we can translate your ideas through color, light, styling, and expression.

I work in a session to direct you gently through intentions that evoke expressions that help the viewer to be subconsciously directed toward your desired casting, and to help your images stand out in a pile of other headshots.

What is Emily’s Branding session approach?

Branding sessions are designed to be completely tailored to you, the client’s needs. I like to hear about how you wish to be seen by viewers, and your unique photography ideas. For product and food photography, we can use my studio for these larger shoots. My portrait sessions are instead offered outdoors, or at a special location of your choice, such as your favorite ice cream shop, or book store.

It’s a great idea to send us images that you love or wish to emulate! I’m always open to collaboration that is within my wheel houses. Just get in touch if you have questions and we’ll create something inspiring together!

What is the vibe of your studio?

I like to keep my studio cozy feeling, and comfortable. I always have coffee, tea, hot chocolate, sparkling water, white and red wine available for my clients. And of course, I invite you to bring your favorite music playlists the day of your session! However, I have my music available for you as well, which you can choose your favorite station from. I like to keep my environment feeling easy, and a safe space for you to express yourself and collaborate.

Can I bring someone to my session with me?

If you are a brand/company, the answer is, of course, yes.

If you are scheduled for Headshots and over the age of 18, we ask you to leave your mom/dad/significant other/best friend at home. We are happy to accommodate your pup or guardian if you are in need of a support animal or are under the age of 18.

My studio is small, and you know what they say, ‘Too many cooks in the kitchen’… is never the best thing.
