Frequently Asked Questions:

How quickly do I get my photos after the session?

We review photos in real-time as we’re creating them. This process is critically important for getting you amazing photos tailored to your preferences and goals. You will have the option to select photos while on-site with us, and if so, you can get your un-edited photos the same day! Otherwise, you’ll receive your photos the next business day. Retouching takes 5 business days from selection, but you can upgrade to Expedited Delivery for $75/photo, which means your photo will be ready the following business day. (Monday-Friday.)

If I need my headshots more quickly, can I get them faster?

If you’re in a rush, you can expedite your retouching to one business day vs 5 Business Days for $75/photo. In some circumstances, we may also be able to send your un-edited headshots on the same day (vs the following business day), but please check with your photographer beforehand.

Do you offer group/couples discounts?

Yes! When booking studio sessions online, you have the ability to “Add a Friend” for a discounted rate. For outdoor/office sessions, we also offer a discount for back-to-back sessions.

We offer 10 paper studio backdrops along with 2 lighting styles. Colors include pure white, off-white, light grey, charcoal, black, yellow, orange, blue, aqua, and pink. You can see all available backgrounds here:

What does "retouching" mean? What do you do to the photos?

During the retouching process, we generally improve the quality of the photo by 1) removing stray hairs 2) whitening teeth 3) removing acne 4) minimizing bags under eyes and 5) generally improving lighting/contract. If requested, we can also apply facial wrinkle removal. Learn more and see examples on our editing process page.

Can you print my photos for me?

We do not currently offer photo printing services for our photos. If you need printing services, we highly recommend Fedex Print and Ship, which has affordable high-quality photo printing available across the city.

No fees for cancellations or reschedules requested with at least 24 hours notice. If less than 24 hours notice, there may be a $50 re-booking fee to transfer your appointment to a different date/time. No-shows are non-refundable.

I'm not good at taking photos or hate getting my photo taken, can you help?

That’s our specialty! For every session, we create a relaxed/fun environment for headshot photography. You don’t need to have any prior experience/success in your photos – we will coach you to success. If you come prepared and bring a good attitude, you’re going to get some great headshots. For professionals who HATE getting their photo taken, you’ll end up appreciating that we can keep sessions short-and-effective.

Will you ever share my photos online in your portfolio?

HeadShots Inc retains the rights to use any headshots, portraits, group photos, and event photography for sharing and promotional purposes. As a photography studio, we could not continue marketing our services without a steady stream of recent work. We only choose the best photos. If a client would like to book a session with full privacy, please request a custom quote. Fully private session fees are +50% higher than standard sessions.

Do I need to pay upfront?

Yes. In order to provide competitive pricing, we need to know that customers will actually show up for their session. As such, we don’t accept reservations without payment upfront. In some case however, you can call us ahead of time and pay when you arrive. You must call ahead of time and discuss with the studio.

What are your standard licensing terms?

Client’s receive an unlimited perpetual commercial license for all photos purchased at their session. There’s no hidden fees. You never need to license or credit us for your photos after buying them. Our competitors’ fees for licensing can range into the hundreds to thousands of dollars, so our rates are unbeatable.

We understand that some clients have photos of co-workers that they’d like to match. If requested, we will do everything possible to match the style of other photographers for your session. However, you must contact the studio beforehand to confirm whether we can match your desired style. For studio contact information, please visit the relevant studio page.
