Head Shot Session Process
Head Shot Sessions are a scaled down version of our portrait sessions intended to be a visual communication of your professional style. From location to styling to mood, the care we take in planning your Head Shot is just as detail oriented. Whether it be classic and polished, whimsical and fun, or fresh and casual, we will work together to create a headshot that makes an impression that fits your needs for both web and print media.
Step 1: CONSULT & PLANNING
During the consultation we will discuss what you can expect of your Head Shot Session. It can happen either in person or over the phone. We will go over details such as location options, your style desires for your images, what to wear, hair & makeup, time commitment, and any other questions you might have.
The consultation will end with our booking a date for your photo shoot and the payment of the session fee in order to hold your place. We will then take care of planning and making the arrangements for the shoot.
Step 2: PHOTO SESSION
Jourdan Photo sessions are intentionally low-pressure, casual, and playful. The idea is to capture the authentic spirit of the person in the images. This is best achieved when we are all relaxed and enjoying the experience.
We will meet at our agreed-upon location and take time for both posed and candid shots. Head Shot Sessions last anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, though it can take longer should you wish to include multiple clothing changes.
Step 3: PROOFING GALLERY
Within 5 working days, there will be an online proofing gallery ready for you to view. In it you will find at least 5 poses from which to choose your favorite image.
Do not worry about details and distracting elements at this point. Rather, focus on the pose and facial expression that pleases you the most.
Once you have selected your favorite image, I will then work my editing magic. I will both enhance details such as your bright and lovely eyes and clean distractions such as flyaway hairs, blemishes, and clothing lint. Color will be balanced and drama will be enhanced with artfully placed blur, shadow and texture. The result will be a head shot that pops and let’s your personality shine through.
Step 4: IMAGE DELIVERY
Once the final retouching has been completed within 5 working days, I will replace the proofing images in your online gallery with your completed Head Shot. There will be several crop options for the various uses you may have for your image. You will be able to download your digital image files directly from your gallery. Additionally, you can order prints through the gallery should you need them.
