“Below are some selections from Jim’s recent headshot session. Jim chose the extended session because we wanted two unique looks and two different shirts. We ended up with three different looks because I went off script for the first image on black and that worked out really well. Regardless, we would not have been able to get the variety in pose, crop and background with just the standard, 30 minute session.”
