Looking forward to working with you!

  THANK YOU for choosing to use Lakelight. My goal is always to get the best images I can for my clients. A large part of that is to make sure you are comfortable with your upcoming shoot and feel totally preperped. 

If you have any questions please do hesitate to reach out and ask. 

Things to think about before your session.

What should I wear?

 I always say bring as many options as you can. If you are looking for professional headshots you might want to do multiple changes to get a good variety of looks. For men, this might mean button down shirt and suit jacket. 






OK now we got that stuff out the way let's talk about the session. 

I try to get as much in terms of pre production via commutations before the shoot as possible. At least a rough idea on the kind of images we are looking for and what to wear. When you arrive, I will normally have a basic lights setup. Once we have decided on what and where to shoot, we will go ahead as start shooting.  


I work with iPad that is connected to my camera. As we shoot, we can monitor the image in real time. It’s the same as looking in the back of the camera but much bigger. Models love working with this tool as make for very productive sessions. 

Once the session is complete, and we think we have what we needed. I will contact you within a couple of days and send you a link to a gallery of the full session. You can then look through the samples and pick the images you want. I normally ask you to select 6-8 images from the session. Those images I will retouch for you and send you a 2nd link with the final high-res versions for you to use in your portfolio. I do ask that you only post the retouched versions. If you want more images retouched, we can talk about that and work something out. One or two extras in not normally a problem.


That's about it. Again, I look forward to working with you. If you have any question please feel free to contact me.
