As a fellow actress, I understand the stress put into the whole process of
taking a good headshot. A headshot is the first thing casting, producers, potential agents & managers see of you. That's HUGE! My aim is to make the whole process as smooth and comfortable as possible for you, and believe it or not, we can make it FUN! My knowledge of industry standards (as a headshot photographer and actress) gives me the ability to provide you with headshots that get results. The less you have to worry about your headshots, the more you can focus on your craft and book your next audition!
where does your session take place?
The photo session will take place at Laura Flannery's Studio in Covington, LA. Address will be given upon booking.
The studio has the benefit of both studio and natural lighting. The "studio" setup also resembles a very natural-looking light.
what does a look consist of?
Looks consist of a single change of wardrobe, or a single change of hair/makeup, or any combo of the two.
what is your availability?
I’m booked roughly 4-6 weeks in advance. If you wish to see me sooner, there is a wait list which moves frequently. In order to be on the waitlist, you must email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know upon booking. We will contact you if an earlier appointment is available.
do I need to book a makeup artist?
I highly recommend having your hair and makeup done by a professional for men and women. We offer in-house artists that are extremely talented and knowledgable when it comes to film and photography makeup and hair. They are also super helpful at keeping another pair of eyes on you while you are being photographed and will even assist in making wardrobe look picture perfect. One of our artists can be reserved for you, just let us know at the time of booking/scheduling. Their payment will be due on the day of the session.
Their prices are $200.00 for women (this includes hair and/or makeup for up to 2 looks), plus $50.00 for each additional look. For men, it is $175.00 (this includes hair and/or makeup for up to 2 looks), plus $50.00 for each additional look. Kids under the age of 14 are $175.00 (this includes hair and/or makeup for up to 2 looks), plus $50.00 for each additional look. These rates are based on the use of their product, time and expertise.
Our artists ask our clients to come with a clean face and hair ready for your first look. They will help fine-tune your first look and build upon that as we go from look-to-look.
can I trust your makeup artist not to do too much?
Yes! Too much makeup is no bueno. Our artists will apply the “industry standard” which is very light and natural. We like to keep the whole process extremely collaborative, so if you have any requests, we are very happy to take them into consideration.
do you have client reviews?
We sure do: Client Reviews.
what if something comes up and I cant make it?
Rescheduling is allowed ONE TIME as long as you give me a notice of at least 5-business days prior to the time of our session. Business days are Monday-Friday. Rescheduling with less than 5-business days notice is considered a cancellation. Your time is as valuable as ours. If for some reason we have to reschedule your shoot due to bad rain or an emergency, you'll receive a discount of $50. If you can no longer make session, a full refund of your deposit.
If you're late for your shoot, this will result in less shoot time and fewer images/looks. So please be on time. If you're over 50 minutes late, this is considered a cancellation. If you do not show up or you cancel less than 5-business days ahead of time, you will forfeit your deposit.
do you offer consultations?
Upon booking a session, you will receive three emails to help prepare you for your session. These include what types of clothing to bring, a list of general characters you could portray and other fun headshot trivia. On the day of your session, I will see what you brought and help you narrow down your looks.
If you need a consultation prior to your session, I do offer Zoom consultations where we will discuss your looks and wardrobe styling. This is an additional service, if interested please email me for consultation pricing and info.
when will I receive my images?
You will receive your images within 7-10 business days after your session.
After 7-10 business days following your session, you will receive an online gallery with your ENTIRE session of color-corrected proofs. The proofs are at a high enough resolution for web use, but not recommended for printing. With this gallery you will be able to download and, if you choose to, “favorite” the images you would like retouched. Retouching is $45.00 per image. The retouching process takes 7-10 business days. The retouched images will be delivered to you in high-resolution for both print and web usage.
