Studio Headshot & Portrait Pricing

Studio headshot & portrait pricing packages are for ONE person. Additional people can be added reducing our session time and at a reduced price. You’ll have the option to add additional people when you get to the Add On section of the Booking Page.

Headshots are from the chest up and focus on your face. Portraits will include more of your body and give a better sense of style.

Using the Book Now button lets you: choose the studio headshot or portrait pricing packages, choose any Add Ons and select a date and time that works with your schedule. Once you’ve made these selections, you’ll have a chance to read and sign the contract and pay your 50% retainer. Simple as that. Online scheduling conveniently allows you to book your session without having to wait until I’m available to compare our calendars.

Please be sure to read my Coronavirus Safe-Session Policies. We can decide on masks when you’re not in front of the camera. The 48-hour cancellation policy will be waived if you’re feeling sick at any point before our session.

Studio Headshot & Portrait Pricing

I specialize in professional studio headshots and portraits taken either at your office, in my studio, outdoors near my studio in the wildly popular RiNo neighborhoods or we can choose another location.
Session Times. Professional Headshots for one person is about 2 hours. This includes time to review and choose your favorite images. If you add additional people to come in soon after you, this reduces our session time and the price for each addtional person. The portrait sessions are 2-3 hours including on-site review, and depending on the package you choose. A Branding Session lasts 3 hours when including hair and makeup, 2 hours when not.
Payment. Your session fee, a non-refundable retainer, is due as soon as you book your session to reserve the date and time. The balance of all the images you order is due the date of the session. If you cancel with less than 48-hours notice, you forfeit the retainer. If you cancel with more notice, I’ll transfer the retainer to your rescheduled session.
Group Photo. Call me.
Hair & Makeup. This is an option for an additional fee when added to Professional Headshots or Social Media Portraits, when you’d like a polished look. It is included in both the Branding Portraits and other Portrait Sessions. You may also substitute makeup and hair for an additional retouched image in the Social Media Portraits session. My master hair and makeup artist meets us at the studio or location of the photo session. You’ll have your hair styled in a way you normally wear it and makeup will be applied to highlight your best features. Relax, 100 percent of the time this is a very natural look, not overdone at all. It’s best to come with your hair clean and down, your face washed and your skin moisturized. If you’ve found makeup that looks great on you and works best for your skin type, bring that to the session. The same goes for hair products.
What to wear. The most important thing here is to make sure your clothing fits you well, especially around the shoulders and neckline if these are headshots. For portraits you’ll want to look top notch from head to toe. Be sure to try it on your outfits A FEW DAYS BEFORE the session to give you time to have them tailored or choose/purchase something else. If you do business in a suit or want to look your very best, I suggest you wear a suit and tie and use the Windsor knot as this looks better than the half. Perhaps choose a power tie in red, orange or yellow to bring out the colors of your shirt. You get to show some personality here. If you normally dress casually, go for business casual with a collared shirt. Alternatively, you could add some color with a shell underneath, a scarf and/or simple jewelry. If you normally dress casually, try a light-weight sweater, or a nice shirt with a neckline that flatters your face structure and colors that do well with your skin tone. Low-cut tops will be cropped out in headshots and it can appear as if you’re not wearing anything under your suit jacket. If that is a concern, choose accordingly. No, no, no exposed arms unless you love the way your arms look.
However you typically dress, you may want to consider bumping it up a notch to convey a professional image for that first impression. For headshots, all that will be seen is from the chest up, but I suggest making sure that from the waist up your clothing is pressed and lint free, the fabric color complements your skin tone, the fabric cut complements your shape, your hair is at its best and your makeup is impeccable. Please do not wear solid white in headshots unless covered by a jacket. It detracts from your skin tone and we’re trying to bring all the attention to your friendly face. For portraits, the above applies from head to toe.
During the session. The best images happen when everyone is relaxed and enjoying themselves. So, we’ll take a few minutes before the session to help you relax, play your favorite music, take a few test shots and help you get into the flow. Most people say they hate having their pictures taken, kind of like going to the dentist. The difference is afterwards, most clients say they enjoyed our session, and that it was actually FUN. Not what the dentist usually hears! Click here to see my FIVE STAR Google reviews.
After the session. With the Professional Headshot and the Studio Portraits, we’ll review and choose your favorite image(s) as soon as we’re done photographing. For the Branding Portraits and Portrait sessions, we’ll schedule a Reveal Session two weeks after our photo session, see Reveal Session below.
Reveal Session. This is scheduled 2 weeks after our photo session. This is when you’ll see your best images for the first time. We’ll view your photographs together on my TV screen or via a Zoom call, if you selected the digital package. We’ll view them matted and printed on my Reveal Wall if you would like one of my Folio Box Packages. I’ll help you choose your favorite images and you’ll pay for these at this session. The best thing about the printed reveal is you get to walk away with your folio box images the same day!! If you order duplicates or wall prints, those will take a few weeks to arrive. You’ll receive the digital file in the size of your print, of each print ordered, after your prints are delivered. With the Branding Portraits, your images will be sent to you digitally within a week.
Retouching. Basic retouching is included in all my packages and covers removal of blemishes, scars, minor wrinkles, darkness under the eyes and teeth whitening. If you’re face is covered in blemishes or age spots, that falls under additional retouching. If you’d like additional retouching added to your package to remove all acne, all age spots, take off 10 or more years for example, shed 20-40 pounds, remove most all hint of age from your neck, or anything not included in basic retouching, I charge $95/hour, with an hour minimum. I can also add long, luxurious eyelashes in post production for $30/image.
Delivery time. Digital images are delivered via email typically within a week, longer for larger groups. Rush jobs, add $100.

  1. Hi Katie–
    I just saw Howard Paul’s fabulous new professional headshot and immediately asked him who did it for him. It captures Howard perfectly! I’ve known Howard for many years through our association with Alpine Rescue Team. I am a couples therapist in Fort Collins and my last headshot was taken about 6 years ago, so I am looking to update within the next year.
