Still have queries? Here’s some frequently asked questions about professional headshots:
1. How much should I pay for professional headshots?
Opting to spend money on a professional headshot is a major decision, but one I can assure is a worthy investment for your future self. Generally, my sessions start at $350, however I also offer headshot packages that are tailored to your unique needs.
2. Where can I use a professional headshot?
Headshots are perfect to represent your personal brand, and as such, here are a few examples on where you can use them:
- Your own or company’s website
- Professional social media profiles, including job networking sites
- Business cards
- Email accounts and signatures
3. Is a professional headshot worth it?
Unless you’re someone who’s a professional photographer yourself, I’d suggest investing in getting your professional headshots taken. They come fully edited and professionally retouched, and in multiple formats and sizes so you simply have to forward or upload it directly, wherever needed.
4. How often should I update my headshot?
I’d recommend updating your headshot at least once a year. This is because as time goes by, situations change and how we look tends to change. Since your headshot is the first impression of you to a potential recruiter or hiring manager, the worst you can do is to send them an older photo of you, where you look different than you do today. When they meet you, they’re going to be put off, and you might have just sabotaged your dream opportunity.
5. What if I’m not photogenic / I want to wait till I shed a few pounds?
We all get nervous about our appearance—it’s completely fine! I have been in your shoes, so I know how it feels. However, I assure all my clients that they have nothing to worry about—my headshot sessions are fully guided—which means that I will personally coach you about the poses that will create an awesome photo that you will LOVE.

And when you look fab, you feel fab, and you get fab photos!
