Kortney is amazing! She took wonderful, professional headshots for my fiance and I. Kortney spent time adjusting lighting and poses in order to capture shots that worked for us. I appreciate how she showed us thumbnails of the shots on her camera as we worked through the session, so we could be a part of the experience/decision-making. After our session, she spent time with us, allowing us to choose our favorites. Kortney is patient and truly wants the best for her clients. Cannot recommend enough!.”

If you have an online presence, you need a professional headshot.

For individuals, social media and professional sites like LinkedIn can be the first visual impression someone will get of you. Making that first impression with a professional headshot can make the difference to ensure that both professional and personal relationships see your personality. If you have a web page for your business, a headshot is a must-have element for your “About" section. You’ll hear it again and again on this site: Imagery tells a story. If your story needs to be one of a confident, approachable professional, get a professional headshot.


For corporate environments, photos can be scheduled whenever a new employee comes on board. Those whose appearance has changed significantly should have updated photos taken.

what's the difference in commercial branding and professional headshots?

Branding photography tells a brand's story through various images, including portraits, lifestyle shots, and product imagery. Professional headshots are clear portraits used for individual representation, commonly seen in corporate profiles and networking platforms.


Your portrait should show you at your best, and hair is an integral part of that look. If you have a stylist you visit regularly, and trust, I suggest going to them. Unless you are coming directly from your stylist to your shoot, plan to go a few days beforehand. This will allow the cut or style to set in a bit. For men, consider the image you want to portray. If you’re clean cut and professional, show up looking that way. If you prefer a 5 o'clock shadow and wear it well, show up as is. Here comes that line again: imagery tells a story. The important thing is to consider the story you want to tell and make sure your look fits that narrative. If you prefer to have a stylist on site for your shoot, I have a number of professionals who can help. Contact the studio for more information.


Don’t overdo it. Modern photography captures incredible detail, and an over-abundance of makeup rarely flatters. That said, studio lighting can wash out color from your face, so it is important to wear at least light makeup. Eye makeup, especially mascara and eyeliner, can emphasize your eyes. Lipstick with a matte finish photographs well. Powder is recommended to keep shine off your face so there is no glare on the finished portrait. If you prefer to have a stylist on site for your shoot, I have a number of professionals who can help. Contact the studio for more information.

Do you offer a studio setup on-location?

Business Branding is not always warranted or attractive to some businesses. And let's face it, it's not always an option to schedule the entire staff in-studio. We can pack up our gear and head to you for a studio setup onsite. There is a $200 setup fee.


All pricing includes basic retouching and color correction. My retouching philosophy is that if God gave it to you, I’m not the one to take it away. Temporary blemishes that will be gone in a few days or a few weeks will be removed, and slight variations in skin tone can be made less noticable. I can reduce the presence of scars, moles, birthmarks, or any other permanent facial feature and minimize the effects of natural aging to a degree, but removing them altogether would present a false image to the viewer. The human eye is incredibly discerning, and an overly retouched image is readily perceived as implausible. Beyond that, they are simply not my style. My desire is to shoot pleasing, comfortable, flattering but accurate images that… wait for it… tell a story. Additional retouching at your specific direction is available for an hourly fee.


No. While the studio provides control over every aspect of your images, working in your office environment can be a great way to give presence and purpose to your headshot. Whether you need a single image, or want to photograph your entire staff, shooting headshots on site saves time. Also, for large numbers of employees, shooting in your office space will ensure consistency in the look and feel of the finished images. With a minimal amount of space and some time for set up, I can create a relaxing environment where your employees will look their best.

Shooting on site provides a great way to get a number of headshots quickly and conveniently. Contact the studio with your location and the number of individuals to be photographed for additional information. Curious about the process? See a Case Study from first phone call to image delivery.


Branding Photography is an intimate way to build your business, product library and clientele. It's a documentary-style session of your business in action and the best way to engage with your audience. Usually taken in your office, these images tend to have a more natural feel. Shooting someone at their desk for instance has an immediacy to it that a standard headshot does not have. Business Branding also tells more of a story because of the ability to add elements that help set a mood or tone for your photo.


Wear something you like and that fits well. Wear something you’re comfortable in that you feel is flattering. Headshots are about relaxed confidence, and ill-fitting clothes that are uncomfortable will not allow you to look your best. Headshots are also about your face, so I recommend against anything that will compete with the face. Bright colors and strong patterns can quickly complicate a headshot, while subtle textures can add depth and highlight your face. Solid colors work well.

Your attire should reflect who you are, but as a rule, neutral solids are always a safe bet. Avoid skin-toned colors as these can cause problems when color correcting your images. Headshots for digital media are used at a wide range of sizes – mostly small – so simplicity is key for your image to communicate well. Jewelry is at your discretion, but again, simple is better.

Bring yourself and an outfit or two. If you are unsure about your attire, I can help you decide on something that that will work well. If possible, schedule your day to be as stress-free and relaxed as possible. Stress and tiredness will come through in your photos. While it’s important to think about who this photo will be communicating to and the persona you want to portray, the most important thing you can do is relax. Most people do not like being in the crosshairs of a photographer’s lens. If you have questions or concerns about how things will run, timing, anything – contact the studio. My biggest job is to help you be yourself in front of the camera. Anything you can do to help me in that endeavor will ensure that we have a great time and get photos you are proud of.


Every photographer has a particular style. Look at my portfolio and you’ll quickly see mine. If you like the work, I may be the right match for you. Read my testimonials and take the word of my many satisfied clients. Price is always a concern, but hopefully is not the determining factor in your photographer choice. I’m not the cheapest and I’m certainly not the most expensive, but I think I offer good value for your money.

I provide technical expertise, an eye for detail, and a strong desire to create images you’ll be pleased to share. I want to portray a confident, approachable look that is above all, natural and relaxed. I want you to enjoy the experience. One of the most satisfying parts of my job is having someone come into the studio who is uncomfortable and watching them relax and actually enjoy the process.
