My home studio is in Albertson (north shore of Nassau County), but no matter where you are located on Long Island, we come to your home or office and set up a professional headshot studio on location.

We serve clients all over the tri-state area! On long Island we often work in:

As mentioned above, we come to your home or office. Other than the obvious convenience and flexibility, this also allows for an environmental portrait in your own office if needed.

We have served clients from Westchester to Staten Island, New York City to the Hamptons and more. If in doubt, contact us for a travel fee quote (often as low as $50).

Retouching is always included in our business and corporate photography session (on the final image selected for each person).

Professional Hair and Makeup recommendations available.

We currently accept payments using Check, Zelle or Cash.

For a single person’s headshot, it generally takes about 2-3 days till delivery.
Larger, in-office, groups may take a bit longer (about a 7-10 days)

Please contact us with your needs and we will work our hardest to accommodate you! Sometimes we may even be able to deliver the final image on the same day when working with a small team.

Yes! This is actually the most popular service we offer. We come to your office with a full studio setup and photograph your team with minimal distruption to your workday. Each person is allocated about 10-15 minutes and gets to preview the images and choose their favorite before they walk away.

There are many advantages to booking a single photo shoot for your entire office. Doing your team’s photos on the same day will greatly lower the cost per person. It will also allow you to hire one makeup/hair stylist for the day.
Furthermore, for Enviromental headshots, doing all headshots on the same day will allow for a more consistent look on your website, so that everyone’s photos match perfectly.

PrepeRATION, tips and tricks

What you can do to be ready for your appointMENT

  1. Wardrobe Selection: Opt for professional attire that reflects your industry standards. Solid colors are preferred, and it’s best to avoid patterns or excessive decoration. Ensure your outfit is well-fitting and makes you feel confident.
  2. Grooming: Schedule any haircuts or styling a few days before the shoot to allow for settling. For makeup, aim for a natural look that enhances your features without being overpowering.
  3. Skin Care: Maintain your regular skincare routine leading up to the shoot to ensure your skin looks its best. Avoid trying new products that could cause irritation.
  4. Rest: Get a full night’s sleep before the day of the shoot to appear fresh and alert.
  5. Hydration: Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to the shoot for hydrated, clear skin
  6. Diet: Eat healthily and avoid foods high in salt the day before to prevent bloating or puffiness
  7. Teeth: If possible, consider a teeth whitening treatment to brighten your smile, no worries if you don’t we can also do a bit of post whitening in photoshop.
  8. Accessories: Keep jewelry to a minimum and ensure any visible pieces are subtle and complement your outfit
  9. Nail Care: For a studio business headshot, your nails will most likely not be showing, if we’re doing a pose such as arms crossed your nails may show… In that case, please ensure your nails are clean and groomed. For polish, neutral shades are recommended.
  10. Arrival: Plan to arrive a little early to the session to avoid any last-minute stress and to have time to freshen up.

These tips should help you be prepared and captured at your best!
