Frequently asked questions
Where are you located?
The studio is Historic Springfield near downtown Jacksonville at the corner of 3rd and Hubbard at 55 east 3rd street, Jacksonville, FL 32206 Street parking is available. Look for the corner building with the wrap around porch, outdoor curtains and photography banners.
What do I wear for my session?
Solid, jewel-toned colors work best. Pastels wash out. Choose jackets, tops, dresses or suits that are new or in very good shape and flattering to you. Jewelry whether understated or bold is a personal preference. Headshots are waist up but some prefer to be photographed from the hips up to show more personality so consider slacks or a dress that coordinates.
Should I have my makeup and hair done?
I’ve been a makeup artist for 20+ years for magazines and advertising for actors and models. I do natural or striking makeup looks that’ll improve the results of your photo session and reduce the need for retouching.
Please arrive with your hair done or as you like it. I’m happy to do quick touch ups or stay. Coordinate your hair color appointment with your photo shoot date so your hair looks it’s best.
When will I receive my online proofing gallery link?
Allow up to one week for your gallery although let me know if you’re on a tight deadline and I’ll do everything I can to expedite.
Once you choose your final images allow 1-3 days for your finals to be emailed to you. Expedited processing a viable upon request.
What else should I do to prepare?
Book your session at a time of day when you’re not rushed and have the most energy. Brush your teeth right before your session for a great smile. Look at samples on this website to get an idea of poses and backdrops you prefer. Once in front of the camera I’ll give you direction and chat with you to get your best angles and smiles.
