How Does a Portrait & Headshot Shoot Work?

A portraits & headshot photography experience consists of meeting at a location such as a park, your home, or a studio. Ben will direct you into a variety of poses. Of course, if you have a vision for the perfect portrait shot, Ben always happy to help achieve your vision!

After the shoot, Ben will go through the images with you, pick the best shots and upload them to an online proofing gallery. There, you'll select your favorite images for final editing and processing. 

Photos selected for final editing are hand-processed to maximize quality and impact. All portrait sessions include basic retouching (skin & teeth); advanced client-requested retouching services are also available.

The final images will be delivered to you via a private, password-protected online gallery, typically within 1 week.
