“Your smile is your logo. Your personality is your business card. How you leave others feeling after an experience with you becomes your trademark”
HOW IT WORKS
A simple process that creates your new fav profile pic
Get In Touch
Fill out the Contact Form at the bottom of this page. I’ll get in touch and we can chat about how we can create a look and style that fits with your branding and polish your look.
Whether its at my studio or on location, we’ll take the time to create a set of images you love. If you’d like professional hair & makeup in studio, it really uplevels the final product and is available for both men and women.
Viewing & Ordering
You’ll be able to see and select your final images either straight away at the session or through an online proofs gallery after the session depending on your preference.
All final images are hand retouched by me before final delivery. If you’d like specific color toning or something enhanced in the retouch just ask, I’m happy to help!
1. HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST TOTAL?
Headshot sessions start at $150 in my studio or $250 on location. This includes the first image retouched. Additional images are $50/image. Contact Emily for group photography pricing if you have a team.
2. DO YOU OFFER DIGITAL FILES?
YES! Digital Files will be delivered via an online gallery and you’ll have the option to download them in two resolution sizes: Web and Print size. If you’d like to purchase any photo prints or wall art of your images, we can do that too!
3. DO YOU RETOUCH IMAGES?
You bet I retouch everything. All digital files include a standard retouch to correct for color balance, color tone, and exposure. Any image purchased inside an Album or Wall Art piece gets a Signature Retouch, which includes skin,eyes,teeth, hair retouching, background object removal if needed, and any other creative editing. For headshots, each digital image purchase will get a full Signature Retouch and can include a transparent background if you’d like as well. If you need something specific just ask!
4. DO YOU SHOOT ON LOCATION?
Of course I shoot on location all the time. We live near gorgous parks, cities, and outdoor spaces. My studio is steps away from downtown Excelsior, the lake, the beach, and the park. If you’d like your session to be outside, at your office, or another location please ask. I do charge for mileage if greater than 25 miles from Excelsior.
5. DO YOU OFFER WARDROBE & STYLING?
I don’t have a studio wardrobe to offer clients (yet) but am happy to discuss ideas and make recommendations for you. I can also recommend rental services and help you choose what to wear. If you’d like to book a stylist for your shoot, I know some fabulously talented professionals in the Twin Cities who can help you really put those pieces together.
6. HOW MANY OUTFITS CAN I HAVE?
I encourage all my clients to bring several outfit options, even if they just need a single image. I can help you select wardrobe once you get to the studio. If you’d like a package of images we’ll certainly do 3-5 different looks.
7. HAIR AND MAKEUP?
YES! I work with some very talented HMUA artists who are in the commercial fashion world. Ladies – I always recommend getting the Luxe Session which provides hair and makeup before your shoot. You can choose a very natural or a little glammed up look. Not only will you feel beautifully pampered but your images will be next level. Trust me, it’s amazing!
8. BUT I ALWAYS LOOK WEIRD IN PHOTOS!
Don’t worry, I hear this just about every day. Most people are camera shy or worried about how they will look, it’s completely normal. When you hire a professional (like me!) please know that you’re not just hiring a fancy camera and lens. You are also hiring someone with the experience and knowledge of how to pose different body shapes & sizes, how to create flattering light, how to choose clothing that will look amazing, and how to retouch those suspect areas. You are paying for quality in the experience and in the final product, just like you would when purchasing a designer handbag or high-end piece of furniture. Don’t worry, I’ve got you!
INCLUDE THE WHOLE OFFICE IN YOUR NEXT MARKETING CAMPAIGN
Hi, I’m Emily
When I chose to study Photography after 15 years of teaching & playing the piano, it was because I wanted to create something that would be truly helpful in people’s lives. Now I see the images I’ve helped create shared on LinkdIn profiles, Facebook feeds and in Magazines. They are proudly displayed on walls and bookshelves in loving homes. They are cherished by Moms whose babies are now too big to pick up. Shared by proud Grandparents who live outstate. They’ve helped new college grads find their first ‘real’ job and have helped local companies stay in business through a pandemic.
Everyone has a meaningful story they are living. Whether it’s personal or professional, we have something important in our lives that is worthy of photographing (especially ourselves!). I love working with authentic people like you who are not model perfect. You just need a steady hand to guide you through the process of ‘making a photograph’ with care and compassion. It’s very important work and I absolutely love getting to do it every day.
Now that we’ve broken the ice, I’ll tell you a few random things about me so I’m not so scary when I point the camera at you. First, I’m a mom to Wally (10 yrs) and Arthur (8 yrs) and Tillie our year old golden retriever. We live in Minnetonka near my favorite dog park – Purgatory Park. My favorite vacation spot in MN is Ely, where I’ve visit most summers since I was six years old and now bring my boys to every summer. I’m 6′ tall, left handed, an Enneagram 9 (the Peacemaker), and this year will celebrate a big milestone birthday. I love coffee ice cream, jogging (not running), Schitt’s Creek, and can quote most of The Princess Bride or sing any Chopin Nocturne.
