FAQ

Where Are You Located?

We are located in Rye, New York, which enables us to work throughout the Tri-State area, including in New York City, as far south as the Jersey Shore, as far west as Northern New Jersey, throughout Westchester, Rockland, Dutchess and Orange counties, and in Southern Connecticut as far east as New Haven. If you have a destination event and want to work with us, we would be delighted to discuss the logistics.

 

Do You Have A Studio?

No. We shoot all of our portraits on locations, indoors and outdoors. If you want to book studio headshots, we bring studio-quality equipment to your facility, home or office.

 

How Should I Prepare for My Portrait or Headshot Session?

All you have to do is look and feel your best. Before the shoot we’ll discuss what kind of portraits or headshots you want and we’ll take it from there, including sorting the logistics. You are part of the process.

 

What Should I Wear?

We will discuss everything before the session. For family portraits, you can decide if you want everyone to dress in a similar fashion or not – this is entirely up to you and your family. For professional headshots, if you’re an actor or musician, or you’re going to post your headshot on a dating site or on LinkedIn, we want you to be comfortable and well-groomed, so you look and feel your best, and so your style reflects your personality. For corporate headshots, it depends on your organization’s requirements as to how formal the headshots will be, i.e., corporate casual, shirt and tie, etc. We will determine this with your human resources department prior to the shoot.

 

Do You Offer Hair and Makeup Services?

Yes. We partner with a number of incomparable hair and make-up professionals who will help you look absolutely fantastic for the shoot.

 

How Long Will the Portrait or Headshot Session Take?

A family portrait usually takes up to two hours, depending on the number of family members, including pets, and the number of locations. Headshots usually take an hour. Our set-up time is part of the duration of each session.

 

After the Session, How Long Will It Take Until I Can See the Images?

We will have a gallery of proofs available for you on our website within 48 hours of your session. Once you select your final images, you’ll receive your retouched, hi-res files within two days.

 

Do You Offer Retouching Services?

Yes. For portraits and headshots, all final images will include standard retouching. Please feel free to discuss more extensive retouching of your photos with us.

What Sets You Apart from Other Area Photographers?

Beyond the quality of our photographs and the care we take of our clients, we are known for the relationships we have built throughout the Tri-State area and particularly in Westchester, where many of the families we work with hire us for all of their portraits and holiday cards and all of their family celebrations. We don’t just shoot photographs, we document the growth of our clients’ families and the milestones they celebrate.
