HOW PRICING WORKS
"I need a simple headshot."
There is no such thing as a "simple headshot." There are many factors that go into a headshot. Will it be an outdoor shoot or in a studio? Are there multiple outfit changes or is only one needed? What type of makeup is appropriate for photography lighting?
The pricing structure has been streamlined to make it easier for you to balance your budget with your needs.
1) First, determine the location that is most convenient for you. If you would like to shoot in a studio, be prepared to travel to Alexandria, VA. Shoots can also be done in your home or an outdoor location.
2) Secondly, choose a date and time that is most convenient for you. Prices are the same throughout all times of the week (Monday - Sunday). Contact Virak at 703-801-0466 to schedule.
3) Submit deposit. A non-refundable deposit of $50 will be accepted prior to the guarantee of your date.
A minimum of 2-hours is required for all photoshoots.
Below are examples of photos taken in different environments and lighting situations. Choose the setup that will best reflect your needs!
All pricing is customized to each client's individual needs. The total cost will depend on your need.
Pricing is negotiable and I will work with you on setting a fair cost to balance your needs and budget!
