HEADSHOT FAQs

The $150(Standard) or $250 (Enhanced) session fee covers your dedicated studio time and our photography team’s time, talent, and expertise. Our team only serves one client at a time to give you our full attention. At your appointment, you’ll be able to view your beautiful headshots and decide how many you would like to purchase. There are no minimum purchase requirements and no obligations. We have a 100% money-back guarantee.

We understand that not everyone loves to have their photos taken. Our experienced team is here to guide and direct you into flattering poses. We let you see your headshots at several points during your photoshoot so you can provide your feedback. We take your feedback and use it to create images you love!

In the very unlikely event that you don’t like any of your headshots from your headshot session for reasons in our control (lighting, posing, etc.), there are two possible options. To be eligible for either of these options, you must indicate your concerns promptly at the end of the photoshoot. We offer to show our clients their headshot images multiple times during the photoshoot. Please make our photographer aware of your concerns right away so we have the opportunity to make adjustments.

At the sole discretion of the photographer, we may book a reshoot appointment and you can give your headshots another try on another day at no additional cost. The second option is to make use of our 100% money-back guarantee for the headshot session. If you do not wish to give it another try, we will refund your headshot session fee. No images will be delivered.

The client is responsible to bring the wardrobe they wish to wear and the hairstyle and makeup application they prefer for their headshots. The studio is not responsible for providing reshoots because clients are unhappy with their choices in clothing/makeup/hair. Reshoots are at the discretion of the photographer for reasons that were under our control.

If you have already chosen favorites and the retouching process has begun, this confirms that you are satisfied and the session is now complete. You are welcome to book additional sessions at the standard headshot rates if you wish to have a larger selection of images or if you wish to try out different wardrobe choices, hairstyles, etc.

Our goal is to give you the same great experience in the studio while doing everything we can to keep our clients and staff safe. Our studio safety procedures include:

  • individual photo shoots booked by appointment only

  • disinfecting of all common surfaces between photoshoots

  • hand sanitizer stations

  • photographer and assistant in masks and using social distancing

  • dedicated client washroom/change room that is cleaned after each photoshoot

  • no-penalty cancellation/rescheduling – if you feel sick or are in contact with someone with the coronavirus, please reschedule

The cost of one edit is $25 per photo. All images are purchased in addition to the Session Fee. You do not have to choose how many images to buy in advance of your photoshoot.

Our retouching services have a satisfaction guarantee. This means that we are happy to make changes to your retouched images until you are satisfied with the level of retouching work including:

  • Stray hair removal

  • Removal of blemishes

  • Reducing shine on the face

  • Reduce under-eye bags

  • Reducing wrinkles

  • Whitening teeth

  • Whitening eyes

  • Removal of glare in glasses

  • Image cropping

  • Exposure and color correction

Every person prefers a different level of retouching. We will work on retouching your images until they are retouched to the level that meets your satisfaction.

We do everything in our power to make sure that you love your headshots!

We understand that situations come up and you may need to postpone or cancel your appointment. Should you need to change your photoshoot date, please let us know as soon as possible. There is no penalty to reschedule your photoshoot. If you are not feeling well, or have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, please postpone your photoshoot to keep our staff and clients safe. If you would like to cancel your photoshoot completely, please allow 48 hours’ notice for a full refund of your headshot session fee. There are no refunds for missed appointments.

Please try to be punctual, as we often have other clients booked on the same day. If you are late, it may cut into your session time. There are no refunds for missed appointments.

Our Standard headshot session lasts for up to 1 hour and includes headshots from the waist up. If you’d like more time and a greater variety of posing, including full-body, please book our 3-Look  Headshot Session which is a 1.5 session.

When you arrive for your appointment, our friendly team will greet you and help you get any wardrobe changes you’ve brought set up and ready to go. With your input, we’ll select your first backdrop, get our beautiful studio lighting set up just right for you, and start shooting the first set of images. We are there to guide you into flattering poses and to help you feel comfortable in front of the camera. We take a quick break after the first set to let you review the headshots and provide feedback. Our team takes your feedback and continues to adjust and modify through a few more sets, wardrobe changes, and backgrounds (as desired) until you have a nice collection of headshot possibilities. At the end of your session, we review all of your images with you and you select your favorites to purchase.

If you’d like to show your family or team your headshots before you decide what to purchase – no problem! There is no pressure to pick your photos at your appointment. We’ll put all of your headshot choices into a private gallery that you can choose from in the comfort of your own home.

Our studio has a large dedicated client makeup/changiong room with a place to hang your clothing.

Yes! It’s always a good idea to bring a few wardrobe choices to your photoshoot. We aim to give you a variety of looks during your photoshoot. Occasionally, fabrics can have a pattern that does not photograph well (causes moire). Bringing a few options allows us the flexibility to choose the outfit(s) that work best in front of the camera and that is flattering on you.

Keep it simple! You can’t go wrong with a clean pressed collared shirt and blazer for either men or women. We have put together a blog post with more suggestions for your wardrobe choices to help you pick the best outfit for your photoshoot. It’s always a great idea to bring several options and we can help you choose what’s best at the studio.

Please note, the studio is not responsible for your wardrobe choices. If you come to your session with wardrobe choices that you are not happy with, you are welcome to book a second session at the standard headshot session rates to have another opportunity to try a different set of wardrobe choices.

Our standard professional retouching service includes:

  • Stray hair removal

  • Removal of blemishes

  • Reducing shine on face

  • Reduce under-eye bags

  • Reducing wrinkles

  • Whitening teeth

  • Whitening eyes

  • Removal of glare in glasses

  • Image cropping

Our retouchers are careful to keep your headshots looking natural. Extensive retouching can be requested for an additional fee. If you want to know more about retouching inclusion and exclusions, please click the link below.

Yes! Retouching is the final polish that makes great headshots look amazing! Even if you wake up looking your absolute best the day of your photoshoot, professional retouching will create that final polished look that you’re after. Some photographers choose to take retouching too far. You’ve likely seen images like this. The person looks like they have no pores, their pupils are glowing, and every line on their face has miraculously vanished. Imagine the shock when they show up for their job interview! You can trust One Tree Studio to capture you in your best light, and provide professional retouching that looks just right!

For individual headshot sessions, you will typically receive your proof gallery the same day as your shoot. Once you notify us of your favorites, you will receive your fully retouched images in about 2 business days. Let us know if you need a rush delivery.

Our studio delivers the digital headshot images you purchase as high-quality JPG files in a private password-protected online gallery. You can easily access this gallery from any device and download your files as many times as you need. USB drives and CD’s are easily lost or damaged. They’re also no longer compatible with many devices these days. Your gallery will remain available for 1 year from your photo shoot date. Please download and back-up any images you wish to keep during that year and store them safely.

Yes! Our studio offers a Shared Headshot Session upgrade! When you book a Standard Headshot Session ($150), you can bring a friend to have their headshots done at the same time for only $99! We’ll add an extra 30 minutes to your appointment and your friend can have access to our studio, photography team, and backdrops with you. Your headshot proofs will be delivered together in a shared online gallery for easy viewing to choose your favorites to purchase. You can also bundle your retouched headshot purchases! For example, if you and your friend would like 10 retouched images in total, you can enjoy the reduced rate instead of purchasing 5 each

What our Clients are saying

I loved working with Leonard, he’s very kind and professional. Helps you feel comfortable right away and has all the equipment and necessary needs at his studio, I loved how he had a monitor that would show all the photos

Leonard loves his work and it shows. He makes you really comfortable and takes his time. I got many, many shots to choose from, and was able to select a bunch that I really wanted from the shoot. His studio is well-lit and provides easy parking. All around a great experience. Highly recommended!

I did a group photoshoot with Leonard! He was very professional and had great customer service. A lot of us were amateurs in front of the camera but he made us feel very comfortable. I chose the photos I liked and had a quick turn around with the edits. I will definitely shoot with him again when I’m in the Atlanta area.

LKP studio is a very professional and experienced company. You will feel confident in yourself and photographer getting the best results. I will most definitely hire him again for my headshots/photoshoot. Keep up the great work!

I had an amazing experience with LKP Studio! The photos were absolutely beautiful and my studio experience was very professional. The photographer is very kind and helped me to feel very comfortable and beautiful during my photoshoot.

I hired LKP Studio to capture our proposal in Piedmont Park. He did an awesome job! Was very polite and did a great job of putting us in various poses after the proposal which resulted in some great shots. Overall they came out better than I was hoping.

I met Leonard through my girlfriend, who highly recommended him as a photographer. As a model, I’ve gotten to work with a few photographers, but none were as energetic and enthusiastic as Leonard was. It really helped me get as a model feel comfortable and have the confidence to get the look he wanted. He knows what he wants, he has the patience to get the look he wants, and then executes it in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great photography session.

The owner and founder of this establishment was excellent!!!! He was well prepared , prompt , and very professional! I recommend him to anyone looking to capture life’s moments! Thank you LKP, I will certainly be working with you again in the very near future!
