Do you just take business headshots? Definitely not. As both a portrait and lifestyle photographer I can create custom photos for your blog, website or LinkedIn profile. You can also check out my family portrait website at http://family.fimimsphotography.com.au/
How far in advance should I book you? I always recommend that you book me at least 1-2 months in advance of when you think you’ll need your new photos, just to avoid disappointment. Of course, if you’ve got a rush deadline, please feel free to email me so I can see if there’s a way to squeeze you into my schedule.
What do I need to bring to my photo shoot? All you really need to bring is your outfits, accessories, and of course, your lovely self! While I generally recommend you bring at least 3 outfits to your photo shoot, the more choices you have, the better! However, don’t worry! We’ll discuss all of this in detail before your shoot.
How long will my photo shoot take? It all depends on what package you choose. I offer 20 minute basic headshot sessions, as well as half day and full day headshot and branding sessions.
Do I bring my own outfits to the shoot? Yes, you’re responsible for bringing your own outfits to your photo shoot. But don’t worry! I’m here to offer all the feedback, guidance and support you need, because I know just how stressful it can be to figure out what to wear (and what not to wear).
Do you cover makeup and hairstyling? Absolutely! Whilst some clients prefer to arrange their own hair and makeup, I also have a number of wonderful go-to makeup artists and hairstylists that I can arrange to take total care of you the day of your photo shoot. There is an additional charge for this on most sessions so let me know if you’re interested.
How many “looks” or wardrobe changes do I get? You’re guaranteed at least two looks during your headshot session, more for a branding shoot. I don’t put a limit on the number of outfit changes you are allowed. My aim is to give you as much variety as possible during your shoot.
Can I have my pictures taken outdoors? Absolutely! I offer sessions both in my studio in St Kilda OR on location. In fact many of my clients book sessions that include both. Whether you decide you would like your photos taken in the studio, or at a local cafe, the beach or your home, my goal is always to give you portraits that represent your brand authentically.
How many images do I get? The number of images you get varies with each package, and all these details can be found on my investment page. But don’t worry, you’re not limited to this number for each session. I understand that sometimes it can be hard to choose so for all sessions it’s possible to purchase additional images.
What’s your cancellation policy? I take a non-refundable deposit in advance. I’m happy to reschedule photo shoots if I have at least 48-hour notice.
How do I pay for my photo session? You pay a deposit to book your spot and pay the remaining fee prior to your photo session. I accept cash, credit card, transfers or paypal.
How soon after the shoot do I get my online proofs? Approximately one week.
How soon after the shoot do I get my final, retouched proofs? In most cases final retouched images are delivered 1-2 weeks following image selection.
Will you travel? Absolutely! I love to travel for shoots! If you’re interested in working together in another city shoot me a message and we can discuss the endless possibilities!
