What is a look?

A look is essentially an outfit change, as well as a small change in hair/ make up. If you want to add or subtract something small like a jack or hat, that won’t count as an extra look.


Will the weather affect my shoot?

I shoot from inside my climate-controlled studio using a combination of natural and studio lighting, so rain, heat, and wind won’t cause us any problems.


Where are you located?

My studio is located in the North Hollywood Arts District. Specific location information will be emailed to you upon booking your session.



Street parking as available on the surrounding streets.


Do you have a hair/makeup artist?

I have a team of professional make up artists available for booking along with your headshot session. Its recommend that you opt for professional make up but not required. Your make up artist will stay on hand throughout your shoot to make sure you stay looking great.


What if I don’t know what looks to do?

I can help you to a certain extent with picking out your wardrobe, but as far as what “looks” are best for you, it’s often hard for me to tell having just met you. Looks should be based on what type of roles are suited for you, whether that be girl next door, hipster, tough guy, etc. Your agent should advise you on what type of looks they want you to capture. If you don’t have an agent, it’s worth asking your acting coach for their opinion (assuming you’ve been with them more than a few weeks) and think realistically about what you best portray, as well as what you’ve been called in for in the past.


How do I book a session?

Just send me an email and I will get you booked!

What happens after I book?

After you book your session I will send you and info sheet with all the information you need regarding wardrobe, locating the studio, etc. I will confirm our session date with you by email a day or two before just to make sure we are all set.


Do you have weekend appointments available?


How do I pay?

I accept cash, check, credit card, and venmo. Should you choose to book a make up artist they are paid separately by cash, check, or Venmo.

Do you require a deposit?

No deposit is required, however payment is due in full by the end of the session.
