I try to schedule at lease 2 weeks in advance. That being said, I can usually accommodate any schedule. Let me know what your time frame is and we'll make it work!
There are advantages to both. Shooting outdoors helps us get a lot more variety and individuality in your session. The city is an ever-evolving animal that gives us countless opportunity to find a background/location that is just for you! That being said, some people prefer the privacy and climate control of a studio. It really comes down to what you are most comfortable with. The great thing about my Standard Session is that we can do both!
Take some time to think about how you want to market yourself. What roles/projects are you wanting to go for. This will all inform our session and ensure your pictures are saying what you want them to say. As far as the night before, be sure to get lots of rest, lots of water, and try to avoid alcohol.
Bring all your clothes in a small rolling suitcase or garment bag. Also bring any hair and makeup products you use. If we book, I will send you a more detailed list.
It's funny... There used to be a lot of "rules" about what you should wear for your headshots. While obviously some things look better than others, the biggest priority is that you WEAR WHAT YOU LOVE. When in doubt, BRING IT. We will try stuff on and see if it works in the space. With all that said, there are some general rules of thumb: keep things as form fitting as possible; try to avoid colors that are very close to your skin tone; and bring something black and something white.
I will email you within a week's time with links to view/download your proofs. Once you've chosen your final shots, shoot me an email with those file names and I'll email you back within a week's time with your retouched shots. Easy as pie!
