Friendly & Professional: Thoughtful coaching combined with some light humor help make this quick and painless, and pro gear ensures fast and consistent studio-quality results. I promise.
Covid-safe: 10-minute touchless sessions in large, well-ventilated spaces support CDC Guidelines. I've had my shots, and am glad to wear my mask throughout your session, if you like. I'll also have sanitizing gel and disinfecting wipes available.
Deliverables: this turnkey package includes posing and shooting of 15+ shots in one outfit, plus edits and image optimization (best color and brightness) of high-res files with buyout usage rights. Optional retouching whitens eyes and teeth, softens wrinkles and blemishes, removes fly-away hair and glasses glare, and subtly re-sculpts the face to be more symmetrical.
Rate & Payment: Sessions are $50, and optional retouching is $20/image. If you have a code, please enter that at sign-up. Anyone struggling financially is invited to enter the "NYR" discount code and you can name your rate (really - a donation of any amount is completely fine and deeply appreciated). We accept cash or check onsite, or we can invoice your company/group, or you can use this secure link to pay online by purchasing an e-gift card.

Couples who reserve two consecutive sessions receive a FREE couples pose.
The Ripple Effect
Our backstory: Like the rest of the hospitality industry, our photos business crashed in March, 2020. The Tempe Chamber offered to help with a free banner ad on their website, so we decided to pass along that favor by offering NameYourRate Headshots to job-seekers and anyone struggling financially. Thanks to our sponsors and paid sessions, we've delivered hundreds of Headshots, and our PhotoDays are now scheduled weekly throughout the metro Phoenix area.
A huge THANK YOU to our sponsors who promote our Headshot PhotoDays:
