I get it. You HATE getting your photo taken but you need to because you KNOW that the photo of you at your cousins wedding with that glass of wine in your hand does NOT work as a headshot.

But you are putting it off because…. you hate styling your own hair… headshots are cheesy and way too corporate for what you do… you feel so awkward in front of a camera… you don’t have time to organize it all…

That’s where Headshot Days come in!

These are 40 minute sessions in a fun St-Henri studio where we will work together to create beautiful headshot portraits that you will fall in love with.

Hair and Makeup is on site.

I will direct you and we will review your photos to make sure it’s the vibe you want. You don’t KNOW how to do anything. I’ve never shot models (and don’t intend to). You just need to SHOW UP.

The dates are chosen for you – you just have to pick one and you are READY TO GO.

How does this magic work you may be asking?

Our collaboration starts when you book and we go over images that you feel represent you and your brand. We can talk about what might work and I can make suggestions. This is your chance to get your headshot but also a variety of images you can use on social media and web. You can even use props, try out some rad dance moves, or pull out a skipping rope (all tried and tested at previous headshot days).

At the studio, after getting the highly recommended hair and makeup, we will try different scenarios to see what poses, light and looks work best for you. We will do this by taking breaks to review your photos on the computer. This allows us to make sure you truly are creating photos you love.

The easy (and might I say fun and empowering?) experience finishes when you get your gallery. This includes all the favourites that we chose together plus I may include a few more of my own. You select which photos you’d like me to edit.

I offer two different edits.

Fine Edit – $50 + tax

This is what I would choose for a main headshot that you will continuously use and want to be perfect. If you have acne or want any other retouching done I recommend you also choose this option (I don’t do body sculpting!)

Lifestyle Edit – $20 + tax

This is for all those photos that may not be viewed as often or if you do not want/need a lot of retouching. This may include blog posts, Instagram, etc.

Sign me up! How much does it cost?

The $135 + tax session fee includes a $50 edit credit you can use however you want.

TESTIMONIALS

From the minute I contacted Michelle, she was so professional and put me at ease. Lots of information sent in advance with advice on the process, hair, make up etc.. I DO NOT LIKE getting my photos taken, AT ALL. But I needed these for work and Michelle put me totally at ease from the minute I walked through the door. Capable, Confident, Warm, Relaxed, she comes across as friendly and you feel like you have known her for ages. Best of all...I have a number of photos I am really happy with. HIGHLY recommend her and would use her again...and again....and again....

FAQS

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Sessions are $135 + tax and include 1-2 images depending on editing requirements. Additional images are available for purchase.

I AM AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA

These sessions are 100% directed by me. I'm not expecting you to know how to move or place or your hands. I'll let you know.

WHERE ARE THEY HELD?

Sessions are currently held at a studio in St-Henri.

CAN I ADD HAIR AND MAKEUP?

Yes, I highly recommend that this is added on to make your headshots even more polished.

I WANT A VARIETY OF PHOTOS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA.

No problem. We can get a standard headshot plus other photos of you hanging out, drinking coffee or skipping rope - whatever works. I always suggest you send inspiration images so I can get a feel for the type of images you want.

WHAT IS A FINE EDIT?

A fine edit is where I carefully remove fly away hairs, reduce redness, remove blemishes, soften and lighten the under eye area and perform other edits to get it perfect. Ideal for that headshot you'll use over and over.

I don't do body sculpting.

WHAT IS A LIFESTYLE EDIT?

A lifestyle edit is a basic edit where I correct for exposure, colour, shadow, etc. I will always remove electrical plugins or marks on the wall as part of any edit. All my family and newborn work is a lifestyle edit. Ideal for blog posts or Instagram photos that won't be seen as frequently.
