Pittsburgh Headshot Photographer

Are you looking for a Pittsburgh headshot photographer who is great at capturing your best image while providing beautiful, custom and professional headshots?

We offer high-quality corporate headshots for individuals, as well as your office or group. You have the option of individual and group portraits on location in the greater Pittsburgh area (and beyond... we are available to travel), or your shoot may take place at our Mt. Lebanon studio.

What is the headshot process like?

First, you book your session online or over the phone. We will start with a discussion about your professional photography needs and how you would like to be portrayed. Next, I will share with you some resources on how to prepare and what works on camera.

On shoot day, you will come into my studio and we will get to know each other as your shoot begins. We will go over your wardrobe and try a couple of different lighting setups, customized to your specific features and industry. The shoot itself takes about 15-30 minutes.

Immediately following your shoot, we will review your images on my high-resolution short-throw projector and you will select the images you want to keep. Those images will be retouched and returned to you as a digital download in one week or less. Many of our clients have shared with us that their headshot was a seamless and easy process.

Is retouching included?

I will pose and light you in the most flattering way and then will fine-tune your selected final image in post-processing.
This includes:
  • skin smoothing
  • blemish removal
  • color correction

More extensive editing, including slimming, advanced skin enhancement, and hair is available by request.

Your professional headshot is how you will present yourself in most virtual interactions. You want your headshot to represent your true appearance, and excessive or poorly-done retouching can take away from the genuine nature of your portrait. That said, some retouching is a must in order to create a polished and professional appearance.

What if I need a quick & easy individual headshot?

I do individual headshots regularly at my Mt. Lebanon studio and can usually fit in a session within two weeks. Check current availability and reserve your session here. I am not usually available for same-day appointments, but if you are in a hurry, get in touch and I will see what I can do for you.


My most popular option is my simple studio headshot (head and shoulders, simple studio backdrop), and I schedule these every other Thursday at my Mt. Lebanon (Pittsburgh) studio.

I have other times and dates available for location shoots, corporate projects, groups, or more customized headshot, branding, and corporate sessions. Get in touch for information about your shoot.

What if I need a headshot on location?

We offer more extensive Branding Portrait sessions on location as well as headshot composites, where we take your photo in our studio and add it to a dynamic background.
