THE RIGHT EXPERIENCE

Portraits Made Easy

If you’re looking for a professional headshot for your job application or LinkedIn profile, or a holiday family photo session, or if you’re a model who wants to build a portfolio, I can help!

I’m also experienced in photographing conferences, fairs, and events and would be happy to capture your event.

Finally, I have also photographed many baptisms and graduations and am familiar with Notre Dame and other locations as well.

Corporate & Professional Headshots

IN STUDIO OR ON LOCATION HEADSHOTS

For each session we’ll take as many shots as needed until we get the perfect expression. As we’re shooting we can review how the portraits are turning out and adjust any detail as necessary. Once we get the winner I’ll retouch the selected file and send it to you via email or Dropbox.

ThEse EXAMPLES ARE UNCROPPED. most clients prefer this because they may need to be cropped differently for various uses.
