" I’ve worked with Kyle on two photo sessions for myself and two for my family. I then brought several members of our team in to do their photo shoots with Kyle. He’s very professional, but very relaxed and great at putting his subjects at ease. Got great results and his ability to work with (as well as his skills behind the camera) are his strong suits. Plus he has great music playing during his sessions! I’d recommend him highly. "

"When working with photographers it is very important to our agency that they exude professionalism, deliver the images that we need for our models and that agency, and most importantly connect professionally with our models to obtain the images we can utilize to successfully market them. We are happy to say you delivered all that and more! We appreciate your hard work, diligence, and prompt receipt of the photos Kyle. The models are thrilled with the final selections and so are we!"

"Shooting with Kyle was lovely. He is very professional, but has a creativity that is amazing. He is a perfectionist that makes sure that all your pictures are lighted well, and allows for you to be interactive. He has great intuition also on what makes a great shot. He is kind and very thoughtful. A truly great experience! I am recommending him to all my actor and creative friends for headshots as well as lifestyle shots.”

Have Any Questions? Check out our FAQ below

Why choose you ?

12 years of full-time studio photography experience, affordable pricing and thousands of people photographed. Since 2008 I’ve photographed business and corporate professionals, actors, models, archbishops, politicians, realtors, doctors, lawyers, even a magician. I’ve done it all and I’m committed to delivering photographs that my customers are excited to share with the world.

How many photos do you take?

As many as needed. I’ll keep taking photos until we’re both satisfied that we’ve got some great headshots to choose from. Throughout your session, I will periodically share the images with you so that you feel confident about the results and we can make adjustments.

What’s the process?

1. Take a look around the site 2. Click the yellow “Book Now” button. 3. Choose your session type. 4. Show up. (Super Important!) 5. Walk up three flights of stairs (Don’t give up, you’re almost there!). 6. Catch your breath, fix your hair, floss your teeth, etc. 7. Take some great professional headshots. 8. Select your favorites.

How do I pay?

Credit/ Debit, Venmo, cash, check and precious gem.

Why are your hours limited?

I also work as a commercial photographer.  My studio sessions are currently limited to evenings and weekends; however, I am available for staff headshots on-location at your office or workplace during normal 9-5 hours.

When will I get my photos?

Your edited gallery will be sent to you within 3-5 days of your headshot session. Your final retouched images will be delivered to you within 5 days from the date that you choose your favorites. From the day that you’re photographed to the day that you receive your final retouched images, typically takes about a week.

Why are your prices so affordable?

I believe in charging a fair price and that everyone should be able to afford a great professional headshot. Pretty simple. After moving from a smaller market, I was shocked to see the prices Chicago photographers get away with charging. Go ahead and shop around, I’ll be right here when you return.

What’s your studio like?

I’ve converted 3 rooms (studio, half-bath, changing room) of a large condo into a photography business.  Please feel free to bring along a friend for moral support, hair & makeup duty, or just to help make you smile. Bonus: If you really don’t like your photos, you know where I live…

Do you have a makeup artist?

No; however, I can arrange one for you. The additional cost is between you and the makeup artist with 100% of the fee going to them. Alternatively, I’m happy to work with you to schedule your session after an appointment with a salon or Ulta.

Will you coach me?

Absolutely! That’s my job. Being photographed can be an uncomfortable experience for a lot of people. I know all of the tricks and tips to make you look amazing. I’ve photographed thousands of people throughout my career and haven’t encountered a single person who didn’t loosen up a few minutes into their session.

What if I don’t like how my photos turn out?

Bad hair day, the shirt looked better in your mirror at home, etc. – I get it. These things happen. If you’re not 100% thrilled with your headshot session I’ll reshoot it for free or offer you a full refund.

Are the photos retouched?

Yes, each session type comes with a set amount of retouched images built-in to the price.  Additional retouched images can be purchased for $40 each or 3 for $100.

Where do I park?

Free street parking.

Do You Do More than Headshots?

Yes! I’ve spent the past 12 years photographing high school senior portraits, family portraits, children and newborn portraits. I absolutely love doing it. I currently take headshots out of a space that’s not quite big enough to fit families or get too creative with seniors. If you’re interested in booking a senior or family session please contact me and we can work out a location for your photo shoot.
