Whether you're looking for new job or looking to make a move in your current job, a new professional headshot will make all the difference. We can update or create new profile images for your LinkedIn, website and other social media platforms.


If you’re not laughing through your whole session, having fun while capturing killer images, you have the wrong photographer.  The key to a killer headshot is your personality. When you aren’t focused on the camera and worried about your appearance is when the best images come out. It’s my job to coach you through the session and capture those moments. My sessions are full of being silly, making silly faces and bad jokes. You don’t need to a Vogue model, you just need to be yourself!

 At Armato photography we know you are the kind of people that want to be seen as experts in your field. In order to do that you need to have professional headshots that elevate you and your brand. Maybe you feel anxious in front of the camera, think it will take too long or maybe it’s too expensive.  I totally understand these concerns. I didn’t like having my picture taken either. To make things more comfortable I coach every client throughout the shoot, you won’t even know the camera is there. My sessions are generally just around an hour, but we have fun and that time flies by! This is one of the most important investments you can make in your online appearance as not having them can cost you clients. 

Rest assured that now you will be seen as the expert that you are and will not be overlooked.  These will get you more engagement on your website or social profiles which can turn into new customers, buyers, and bottom line, more income.

My sessions are generally between 60-90 minutes. I won’t keep you any longer than it takes to get exactly what you want and need. I know you have a busy schedule and don’t have time to waste.  The part of the session that takes the most time to get perfect is expression, this comes more easy if we have a relaxed and fun environment. The last thing I want for you is to leave here having “settled” on a headshot.  I always want strong, confident and approachable expressions in your headshots. 

I’ll be coaching you throughout the entire session on things like posing, expression, clothing and hair, all the things you just don’t need to be worrying about. It’s all about the subconscious, the first impression that people make when you see your headshots.

A few times during the session we will review what we have shot so far so that we can make any changes or adjustments right on the spot. I shoot to a computer where we can view your images as we shoot in real time on a large screen.

At the end of your session we can sit down together and review your images.  This is where you can select your favorites that you’d like to have professionally edited and retouched. I’m happy to give as much or as little input and advice as you’d like. You’ll receive high resolution JPG images edited and retouched.


Session fees for in studio or out door headshot sessions are $225 and includes;

1 High resolution retouched image

Unlimited outfit changes as you need

Shoot preparation guide on what to wear, hair and makeup tips.

5 Star experience that my past clients have been kind enough to review on Google.

At the end of your session, we’ll sit together and select your images. This puts you in complete control over the cost of your session. Choose only what you love. Additional Images are $35 each including professional editing and retouching.

I don’t want you to pay for anything more than you need to have. Packages lock you into a certain number of images and that doesn’t make sense.

We don’t accept second rate service or products from anyone else we do business with, we shouldn’t accept it with our headshots either. These are the best headshots you’re going to have. I’m fully committed to making sure that your headshot is the best quality and represents you and your brand the way you need it to. I want you to leave here bragging about your new headshots.
