Facial Expression Coaching

It is hard not to worry about how you will look in your new headshots, especially when it comes to your expression. Don’t worry; we will coach you through a range of expressions and identify what works best for you and the people you are marketing to. And we don’t stop there. We will also work with you on how to hold your head, what to do with your eyes, jaw, arms, etc. Our goal is to make sure this is the best headshot you have ever had!

Headshot Retouching

Each of the final headshots you select will get the star treatment during our retouching process. We will remove stray hairs, address skin blemishes, smooth out winkles, bags, and the double-chin that form when you smile, and address other elements for an image that will have you thinking, “Wow! I look great!”

Do You Need a Professional Headshot?
