Friendly & Professional: 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. I'll also have sanitizing lotion and disinfecting wipes available.
Deliverables: we'll shoot a bunch of shots (15+) that we can review onsite, then I'll tweak the shots for best color and brightness and send them all to you high-resolution with full usage rights.
Rate & Payment: Our regular session rate is $50. If you have a discount code from your association, please enter that at sign-up. If money's tight, enter the NYR discount code and you can name your rate (really - any amount). We can invoice your company or accept cash onsite, or you can use this secure link to pay online by purchasing an e-gift card. If you'd like to help support this project or pay-it-forward for someone else, a donation of any amount is deeply appreciated.

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. ($20/image)

Private Group PhotoDay with setup at your location eliminates travel time for your group of six or more, with your natural background or a range of fabric options. ($350 & up)
Couples who reserve two consecutive sessions receive a free couples pose.
Pass It On
The backstory: Like the rest of the hospitality industry, my event photos business crashed last 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 provide sessions throughout the metro Phoenix area.
