Professional Headshots for Stanford Professionals


Your professional headshots should be working for you.

Exceptionalism is the baseline expectation for a Stanford professional. You shouldn't have to settle for bad headshots because your photographer wants to rush you through a photo shoot or won't invest the time to learn about who you are as an individual and where you're going in your career.

As your headshot photographer, I aim to help you present yourself as a confident and approachable professional. My goal is to help you make a great first impression on the decision-makers you need to influence to advance your career.

Before your photo shoot:

I make the time to learn about my clients to help them achieve their goals. To do that effectively, I must understand your challenges and limitations regarding being photographed and help you overcome them.


During your photo shoot:

I give you the time and attention you need to feel comfortable in front of the camera by helping you select an appropriate wardrobe and teaching you how to be photographed well.


I'll help you to develop your on-camera skills by offering an honest critique as we review your photographs during your shoot. I also give you the clear direction and effective coaching you need to succeed.


After your photoshoot:

The most challenging part of any photo shoot is selecting photographs at the end. It's tough to be objective when it's your face on the screen. I'll guide you through this most critical step, helping you create a short list of headshots by explaining the strengths or weaknesses of any particular photograph in context to your goals without using technical jargon.


You're in control:

You'll make the final decisions about which photos you want to buy. I'm here to help you understand your choices and ensure you can make well-informed decisions independent of preconceptions, ingrained biases, or emotional reasoning.

Together we'll create professional headshots that will show your personality and help you open doors to new opportunities.


*Hairstyling & makeup for professional headshots is available on request.
