RETURNING CLIENTS & REFERRALS GET $25 OFF ANY SESSION* / PAYMENT PLAN NOW AVAILABLE SEE MORE DETAILS BELOW.

THE STANDARD SESSION
about 2 Hours
$600

A loose 2-hour session in the studio. Could be a little more, could be a little less. This is the session we recommend for almost everyone because it’s generally enough time to capture a versatile and comprehensive portfolio. For actors, you have time to explore commercial, theatrical, comedic, dramatic, lifestyle, pr, etc. 

– Usually results in 8+ looks, but no official limit. Hair, makeup, and setup changes play a big role in the time/number of looks you get.

– Two retouches included.

– Share this session with a friend for an additional $125.

– Additional prep time available when you hire a pro HMUA – let us know when you book. 

THE POWER HOUR
60 Minutes / about 5 Looks
$425

This is a tight 60 minute session with a loose 5 look limit. We recommend this session if you just need some classic headshots and don’t have complicated hair and makeup changes. Also great for a dedicated Editorial-style session. 

– You can bring more than 5 looks, but we will not rush through to try and squeeze in a ton of looks in this short session for the sake of quality and safety.

– Two retouches included.

– Additional prep time available when you hire a pro HMUA – let us know when you book. 

THE SHORT SESH
30 Minutes / 3 Looks
$300

30 minutes or 3 looks, whichever comes first. A focused, quick moving shoot great for a simple headshot update.

– Two retouches included.

– Arrive as close to camera-ready as possible.

– Individual session only.

PRO HAIR & MAKEUP ARTISTRY
 
Hiring a pro-HMUA is great if you want to put that element in someone else’s hands. It’s totally okay to not hire outside help if you feel confident in your own abilities. It’s a personal choice and we support you no matter what. If you do hire an HMUA, we will provide extra time for you to prep at the studio for the Standard and Power Hour Sessions. Having extra eyes and hands is beneficial for everyone. Generally speaking, sessions with HMUAs move a little slower than those without, but you often get a more diverse portfolio in the end.
