What should I expect to pay?
A professional headshot session is an investment in you. The range is of $100-$1000, depending on your location.
Expect to pay from $35-$150 for each basic retouched image. Usually clients buy all they want, between 5-20 images.
Lighting. Coaching. Service.
The lighting, coaching, and service is what differentiates a $100 package from a $250-$500 professional headshot session.
Why do I need a professional headshot?

Wear your favorite outfit to the session, but also bring 2-5 other options. Pick solid colors. You need to feel comfortable.
For the guys, give attention to your hair and facial hair. For the gals, keep make-up natural. For all, remove jewelry.
Come with an attitude to commit to the experience of creating headshot photos with all kinds of looks. Have fun!
