I’m going to take the next while on the blog to showcase exactly what you’ll get out of the different headshot packages available with me, starting with the entry level Business Mini package.

I am happy to photograph men by themselves for their headshots or with their partner for a stylized session. A recent client, Kevin, is a great example! He needed lifestyle headshots for a magazine …
