Even so, you can't motivate yourself to book a session with a photographer.
→ "I want to lose 15 pounds before the camera adds ten.
→ "Sure, my headshot is five years old but I look basically the same, right?"
→ "I cropped out my partner from a photo at the last wedding we attended. After all, a professional did take it."
→ "I just can't shake the nightmares from school picture day in eighth grade. OMG, my hair!"
... In other words: "Is a headshot reeeeaally that necessary?"
Because it's 2022 and, like it or not, you have something called a personal brand. And the cornerstone of your online brand is not a logo, a font, or even a resume.
It's your headshot.
The short answer: yes.
From LinkedIn profile to Zoom placeholder.
Casual and inviting professional headshots so you can connect with confidence; pursue that next big lead; or, quite simply, show up as your true self, laugh lines and all.
Most people would rather go to the dentist than stand in front of the lens.
I get it! Let’s all acknowledge that having your photo taken requires vulnerability and confidence.
Your job is 80% trusting the process and 20% just showing up.
My job is 80% helping you feel confident in front of the camera and 20% taking pictures.
Rest assured: I will tell you how to stand; where to look; and what to do with your hands. And yes, I will absolutely fix your fly-aways. #igotyou

Introducing my first ever
Portraits and Pints Happy Hour Headshot Event
Grab a glass of your favorite brew and put your best face forward – on-camera and off – for an evening of networking, community, and, of course, portraits
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2022
4:30 - 6:30 PM
SENATE BLUE ASH
1100 Summit Pl., Blue Ash OH 45242
I’ve partnered with some of my #businessbesties from Queen City Charisma of Success Champion Network to join me.
Together, we have connections to some of the most influential business leaders throughout Cincinnati and boast a healthy referral rate.
Translation: it’s basically a guarantee you will meet some amazing business-minded folks who serve with heart and hustle.
Heads up: I expect this event to draw a crowd.
Don't let an old headshot hold you back from the right first impression.
Every Happy Hour Headshot session includes:
ON-lOCATION PORTRAIT SESSION WITH NATURAL LIGHT.
Lifestyle portrait using indoor and outdoor locations at Senate Blue Ash at Summit Park.
IMAGES CAPTURED IN BOTH VERTICAL AND HORIZONTAL FORMATS.
Make sure you have a headshot that will work for Instagram and LinkedIn.
ON-SITE PROOFING TO MAKE SURE YOU LIKE HOW YOU LOOK.
No surprises! Live proofing makes sure you love what we capture before the event is over.
PROOFS SENT VIA EMAIL WITHIN 48 HOURS OF THE EVENT.
PDF proofs of every viable image putting you in charge of which photos I finalize.
TWO (2) FINAL IMAGES FOR PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL USE.
Delivered in print- and web-ready JPG files edited for color, tone, and expsoure. Light skin retouching included.
Typically, I charge a $450 minimum for everyheadshot session.
But, for this event only, you can snag an individual headshot for just $147.
This is the first time I’ve offered this type of event at this pricing… and I don’t plan to offer this too often (read: once, maaaaaybe twice yearly).
And this is truly the only time you can skip the line AND the $450 shoot minimum while still snagging a casual, fun, looks-like-you professional headshot at my group rates.
BUT…. there are ONLY 12 spots.
Once they’re booked, they’re booked. I won’t be adding more and I don’t plan to do another event until 2023. #scoutshonor
I'll be there!
