Let's Go Out! | Outdoor Headshot Photography Coming Soon (Please?)

I'm back with yet another super-awesome client testimonial for Stories Framed Photography. This is the one and only Diana and she reminds me - as we shot her photos outdoors - that we might just be getting closer to spring. Maybe? Pretty please? Do I really have to beg, Mother Nature?

If you would like to have your professional headshot taken outdoors, let's do it! We can aim for an urban setting or a more natural background. I'll even come to you so I can take pictures of you on your lunch break (in between bites, I suppose?).

Contact me today to set up your headshot appointment - indoors or out. Sandwiches optional.

Headshot Happy Hour | FAQ

In just a few days Stories Framed Photography will be hosting Headshot Happy Hour at Mo's Irish Pub in Wauwatosa. As we approach the big day (Wednesday, 4-8 PM, if you don't already have it marked on your calendar) I've been getting some great questions from people who are planning to attend. So, I thought it would help everyone out if I posted a sweet little FAQ page.

Headshot Happy Hour FAQ's

Q: Is this at the Mo's in Tosa?

A: Yes it is! Mo's Tosa is on the corner of Mayfair and Bluemound Roads. Depending on where you are coming from, watch out for the construction - Bluemound doesn't go through near the zoo and I45 exit onto Wisconsin is closed. 

Q: What time is it called for?

A: The event starts at 4:00 PM and is scheduled to end at 8:00 PM. However, if there is a giant crowd still waiting for to take their picture, I will stay until the job is done. (within reason) 

Q: I'm coming right after work - I might look a mess. 

A: While technically, that is not a question, I know where you're going with this. Not to worry - Sandra Hoeft with Mary Kay will be on location doing complimentary makeup touchups. 

Q: Will you fix the glare on my eyeglasses?

A: What glare? I'm kidding. IF there is bothersome glare I will do my best to fix it. However, there should not be any glare. That's why you hire a pro, wink wink. The one caveat is if you did not pay the big bucks for anti-reflective glasses. 

Q: How long will it be before I get my pictures? And how will I get them?

A: Ah! Two great questions! You will have your new headshot within two weeks. I will send you a link to Dropbox so you can download the files directly to your computer/device.

Q: And I can use these for LinkedIn and Facebook?

A: You sure can! In fact, I will send you a file pre-formatted for use on social media. No thinking involved! Yay!

Q: What color is the backdrop?

A: I am planning on having two choices available - black and white.

Q: What should I wear?

A: This is a very common question. First, remember the picture is only shoulders-up. Make your wardrobe decision based on your industry and your position. (i.e. conservative offices = conservative clothing, creative workplace = creative wardrobe, etc.) Try to dress in classic, solid colors with minimal jewelry. 

Q: What kind of payment do you accept?

A: As always, cash is king. However, I don't plan on having change so bring the exact amount ($104.54 with tax). I also take checks and all major credit cards. Please, leave your chickens at home. I cannot accept those as payment at this time.

Q: OK, I'm in! What does my $99 get me?

A: I'm so glad you're coming! You will get a brand new, professional headshot sent right to your in-box. I will have appetizers for you to enjoy and I will buy your first drink at the bar. Not to mention, I have some awesome door prizes to give away. Oh, and you just might be able to do some business-to-business networking, too!

Do you have any other questions? Message me and I'll help you out.

Can't wait to see you on Wednesday!

Reminder: Headshot Happy Hour is in SIX DAYS

Did you forget about Headshot Happy Hour? Nooooo! You wouldn't dream of forgetting about it. No way! Well, just in case, go right now and write it down in your calendar. You know, just in case. (wink wink)

Keep reading.... I've got an exciting new addition to HSHH and I can't wait to tell you!

NEW ADDITION! (here it is, incase you missed the ALL CAPS and BOLD type.)

There will be a makeup artist on hand to touch you up before you step in front of the camera. My new friend  Sandra Hoeft, an Independent Sales Director with Mary Kay, will be offering complimentary makeup touch ups. This is a fantastic little benefit for you, especially if you are coming straight from work. (Thanks, Sandra!)
