“I’ll reach back out after I lose a bit of weight.”

Frederick, Maryland headshot

“I’ll reach back out after I lose a bit of weight.”

I’ve heard that exact phrase so. many. dang. times.

I’m telling you- do the photos NOW.

You don’t need a smaller body for kick-ass headshots. Please don’t try to “fix” your body- it is, and never was, broken.

I can’t even begin to tell you how many times people have reached out for an UnCorporate Headshot session and then told me they are holding off till they drop some weight… only to call me months later in a panic to schedule a session ASAP because now it’s not just something they “should” do, but something they HAVE to do for a presentation/website update/etc. 

Now- I can usually accommodate a quick turnaround if I need to, but it’s not ideal. And when you need it RIGHT-THIS-VERY-SECOND, you don’t have time to:


✅  get a haircut

✅  order a new power tie or blouse

✅  snag the perfect accessories.

And if you wanted a makeup artist, a manicure, or waxing, you might be out of luck because their schedules book up so fast.

The size of your clothing doesn’t tell the story of

🔥how amazing of a designer you are.

🔥 Your years of leadership experience.

🔥Your impressive list of accomplishments.

It is just a tag. 🏷 



My job as your photographer is to listen to you and your concerns- if you are self-conscious about something, I hope you’ll feel comfortable enough to tell me. I will do everything in my power to walk you through ways to feel more confident and make sure your photos show off who you are as a human being.

Does this sound like you? Have you been avoiding getting a much-needed headshot done? Let’s talk and let’s come up with a plan to get you exactly what you need.
