Other Services

Product and Branding Photography

Beautiful photos of your products are a must for your website and socials. Our Product and Branding shoots can cover just the product, if that’s what you need, or these flexible sessions can also cover the face behind the brand, either in the studio or on location. Pricing begins at $550 for up to 4 hours in the studio and includes all high resolution images delivered via online gallery within one week.

Photo Retouching

All sessions come with at least one retouched image. If you want to get additional retouches from your session with us you can order them anytime. The fee for additional retouching for your Tandem Session is $18 per image.

Non-Tandem Images: We do retouch non-Tandem photos, however, the final fee is based on the images we’re working with. Pricing for non-Tandem photos starts at $25. Email us your photo(s) to get an exact quote for retouching.

Special effect or “editorial” retouching may incur a higher fee.


Visit our Retouching page for more information. >>

Hair and Makeup

We include basic makeup application, most appropriate for clients that: 1) do not own their own makeup 2) wish to have only the necessary coverage for looking more even-toned and less shiny on camera. No “beauty” application is offered as part of this service, though we often have some beauty products on site if you forget your own.

Session Consultations

If you’re not sure where to start with your headshot session, we’ll help you put together a plan. Allison offers full consultation services. We’ll start with a questionnaire to get the basics and then request any and all current materials you have available (including casting site profiles, clips, socials, etc). She’ll then put together looks to aim for, including descriptions of each type, shooting order, wardrobe suggestions, hair and makeup styling suggestions, and links for shopping. She’ll then go over the plan with you via zoom and provide a document with all the information so you can run with it. The fee for this service is $100.
