Naturally Stunning Photo Editing.
The choice is yours, whether you opt for subtle refinements or a full-on "wrinkle eraser" effect, my goal is to ensure that the retouching remains natural and true to your original appearance.

Gorgeous Lighting Tailored to Your Features.
I use top-tier headshot lighting techniques, ensuring soft, natural-looking light that accentuates the unique beauty of every individual. Throughout the session, I adjust the lighting to ensure you look absolutely radiant, with no harsh or unflattering shadows in sight.



Edited web-size and hi-res photos will be delivered via Pic-Time, a platform that enables you to see your photos in a user-friendly gallery as well as download and share the images. You can also buy prints and customized picture books via your Pic-Time gallery.


 Most likely, yes - especially if you plan on keeping the shots for several years. Studio lighting detects discoloration, blemishes, ruddiness, and under-eye bags. Using primers and concealers, among other products, helps achieve the optimal look. Keep in mind that corporate offices seldomly hire makeup artists. Hence, if you are doing your own makeup, I suggest applying a bit more than average to compensate for the high-key studio lighting.


Go-to colors are navy, white, black, cream, gray, olive, and burgundy. I typically recommend solid colors. I recommend trying on what you plan to wear beforehand -- you want to feel comfortable.

"Connor is an amazing photographer. Time and time again he has turned out amazing headshots for me. He takes time to ask what you are looking for, plan ahead, and is super friendly during the entire shoot. I'll be going back to him when I need headshots again, and know that friends that have used him for events and group photos have also been so happy."

"Connor was the photographer at a friends wedding and after seeing their amazing photos I asked him to do some headshots for me. He was really thoughtful around time of day for that golden hour lighting, really helpful with posing (and politely telling me to open my eyes more lol). He was so fast and efficient and I got SO MANY GOOD OPTIONS! Honestly will definitely work with him again in the future! Highly recommend"

"Connor did a wonderful job at two projects, a personal project and a work related project. I highly recommend him for both your business and personal photography needs. He is timely, helpful, and very flexible with everything. He has a lot of great ideas and turns around projects quickly. If you are looking for a photographer in the DC area (or anywhere else!) go to Connor first!"
