I've been doing headshots for twenty years in New York City and Houston. Many actors get stressed out over having headshots done--you may feel that a lot is riding on that one session!--so we work through any anxieties, have a relaxed and fun shoot, and take LOTS of photos. I prefer to work outdoors with natural light, but we also have the option to shoot indoors with studio light. After the session you go home with a memory card full of pictures you can post the same day. I also put together a collection of our favorites, retouch them if necessary, and make those available for you to download within a couple of days.

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF REVIEWS, WITH A PHOTO GALLERY FOLLOWING:
"Suzy was really awesome about asking me what direction I wanted my career to go in and what looks I wanted. She put me at ease with her awesome attitude and wonderful demeanor. She took a bagillion pictures and I liked most of them, so it was super #*@ing hard to pick which one I liked best. She is genuinely interested in your career, and she has tons of experience, so picking her brain is a good idea."
Nicole Byer, star of Loosely Exactly Nicole and Ladylike.
"By the time I had my first session with Suzy, I had already had three sets of headshots done, with two different photographers. I knew what I wanted, and it was just a question of seeing if Suzy could do it. It was very simple to communicate with her about my needs and she did a wonderful job of both capturing my natural expressions and eliciting some that were candid and a direct result of her experience. Suzy is super fun and creates a very friendly environment. I left with my shots right after the session and when I went through them all I was astounded at the quantity of awesome pictures I now had. I have never left a photographer with that many pictures that I liked. And I mean liked liked. Not just ones that were "usable."
Johnathan Fernandez, "Scorsese" on Lethal Weapon TV Series.
The session is $400, payable in cash the day of the shoot. This includes six retouched photos. Additional retouching is $10 per photo. Plan for the shoot to take up to four hours, including make-up and set-up time. Bring several different shirts or tops (stay away from loud prints or logos), make-up (skin-toned face powder for men), and hair product if you need it. Please supply your own 8-gig or larger SD memory card, which you will keep after the session. To book a session or to get more info, scroll to the bottom of this site to send an email. And don't forget: Always give your photographer credit when printing a photo or posting to a website or public media.
It's a good idea to make sure you'll feel comfortable with your choice of photographer before the day of the shoot.
