No actor wants to be overlooked.
Stand out with headshots that:

  1. Give you confidence in the room
  2. Show different sides of your personality and playable types
  3. Represent who you are at your core and what you bring to the table
  4. Leave a lasting first-impression on casting directors
  5. Actually look like you

As an actor myself,
I have my finger on the pulse of the industry.

I have worked as a professional actor for over 10 years. I know exactly what casting directors are looking for in a headshot and how to capture that for you. Your headshots will be in line with industry trends and standards and will present you positively. You do not need to think you are "photogenic" or have any experience being photographed in order to get amazing results.

You will be guided throughout the entire shoot in order to get headshots that capture your personality and make you look + feel amazing. We will capture a variety of looks so you have a variety of headshots to submit for different types of characters and shows.

My clients have previously been seen on Broadway/on tour in:

Mean Girls, Miss Saigon, Mamma Mia!, Jersey Boys, CATS, Starlight Express, Joseph...Dreamcoat, West Side Story, Smokey Joe's Café, The Wizard of Oz, and on national television in shows such as Grey's Anatomy, Blue Bloods, and Ellen.

How does it work?

Complete the contact form with any questions you might have. Check out the sessions I offer below and schedule your session via the online scheduler when you're ready.

You will hop onto the online scheduler to view my availability at my studio in the Rittenhouse neighborhood in Philly and you'll book your session there. I will need to confirm your date/time on my end before it is officially on my calendar. Payment for your session is due upon booking.

You will receive a thorough prep guide to walk you through clothing selection, hair and makeup, etc. I highly recommend scheduling hair and makeup - more on that below! You will complete a questionnaire so I know how you would like to be photographed before heading into the session.

Your Session
You will receive guidance to create authentic, connected headshots that target various character types you want to play and shows you want to be in. Fun times will be had. We'll jam your favorite music.

Receive gallery
You will receive an image gallery within 1 week of your shoot. You will have 1 week to make your image selection. I'll begin retouching when you make your selection and Your retouched images will be uploaded there about 1 week after that.

Your headshots will stand out and impress. You will walk into auditions feeling confident, knowing you are marketing yourself with headshots that help you market yourself for the roles you want.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I am not photogenic or don't know what I'm doing?

Being photogenic just means that you have experience in front of the camera. If you don't have this experience (most of my clients do NOT), I will teach you everything you need to know to look your best in your photographs. I will make you photogenic by bringing out your best. You will receive expression coaching so your images look natural and capture the essence you are going for. I will customize my approach to you by adapting to your specific energy and what clicks with you. You don't need to feel "photogenic" at all because I will be there to help you through the entire shoot! You will love your images.

Can I hire a hair and makeup artist to come to my shoot to do my hair and makeup?

Yes! I work with the area's best hair and makeup artists. I can refer you to several artists who will do an incredible job. I have a vanity setup in my studio where hair/makeup can be done and where you can touch up your own hair and makeup.

Can we shoot outside?

YES! Although I primarily photograph headshots inside my studios with studio lighting, we can venture outside around the studio to get outdoor shots as well depending on weather and if we can squeeze that into the length of your session. We can take advantage of the city streets around us and, depending on the length of your session, head over to Rittenhouse Square Park for some photos in the park.

Do I need to bring special pants or shoes?

For a headshot session, that's not necessary, as your pants and shoes won't be visible in the photos. However, I believe that you should come feeling amazing, including your pants and shoes, because it helps inspire you during the shoot. Totally up to you, though. If you are more comfortable in shorts or yoga pants, go for it.

If you would like to shoot 3/4 images/full body images, bring full outfits including shoes, pants, etc.

Can I print my headshots wherever I want?

Of course!

Can I use these images on my website and social media?

Absolutely. No special permission necessary.

How do I book my session?

1) Book online or contact me for more information about the process, pricing, next steps, etc. We will pick a date and time for your session. I will take your name and contact information and a credit/debit card number to process your session fee. Once that's complete, you're on my calendar!

2) Complete a questionnaire so I can get to know you better, how exactly you would like to market yourself, and know where you are in your career or hobby.

3) Receive an appointment confirmation email with links to parking instructions and a thorough prep guide that answers any and all questions you may have about clothing, hair and makeup, etc.

Can you give me advice on how to do my hair + makeup and what clothes to bring?

YES! I actually have a comprehensive guide available here that walks you through everything. I recommend hiring a hair and makeup artist to do that for you at your shoot, but if you elect to do it yourself, the information is available in the guide. As always, you can reach out to me with any questions you have leading up to the shoot.
