Friendly & Professional: I understand that many folks don't love getting their picture taken, so I combine thoughtful coaching with some light humor to help make this quick and painless, and pro gear to ensure consistent studio-quality results. I promise.
Covid-safe: 10-minute "touchless" sessions support CDC Guidelines. Please arrive wearing your favorite mask for a souvenir photo of these crazy times, and I'll wear mine throughout your session. Each participant will receive a lovely disinfecting wipe as a parting gift.
Deliverables: we'll shoot a bunch of shots (15+) that you can review onsite. Later, I'll tweak the shots for best color and brightness, and send them all to you high-res. with full usage rights.
Rate: Our regular session rate is $50. However, if you're looking for work or struggling financially, we offer name-your-rate pricing to fit any budget - including free! If you'd like to help support our cause or pay-it-forward for someone else, a donation of any amount is deeply appreciated (my family thanks you).
wear an outfit that you feel good in, and that's a good fit for the job that you want
colors (bold or pastel) generally do better than solid black or white
even short sleeves are usually better than sleeveless
bring a jacket to dress up a casual top and we'll shoot both looks
choose props, hair style & accessories based on your personal brand and target audience
be yourself - everyone else is already taken (OK, old joke - but some good wisdom there)
Custom Retouching whitens your eyes and teeth, softens wrinkles and blemishes, erases glasses glare and fly-away hair, and subtly re-sculpts your the face to be slightly more symmetrical. ($20/image)
Location Portrait includes a location shoot with custom lighting, natural background, wardrobe changes, props, custom crops, previews and digital retouching of selected files. ($150 & up)

Pass It On
The backstory: Like the rest of the hospitality industry, my event photos business crashed mid-March. The Tempe Chamber offered to help me with a free banner ad, so I began offering NameYourRate Headshots to pass along that favor to anyone who's struggling financially. Thanks to our sponsors and donations, we're able to continue providing sessions throughout the metro Phoenix area.
