Minneapolis Headshot Photography

Headshots & Business Branding

There isn’t a one-size fits all approach when it comes to headshots or business branding photos. Having professional, current, and well planned photos not only make your website look fabulous, but they will give you the edge you need over your competitors. The style of photography you need will depend on your audience and what your marketing goals are. I’m happy to discuss your project with you and help you brainstorm ideas. Having professional photos for social media, LinkedIn, and web use is more important than ever! 

Research shows that people like doing business with people they feel like they know. If you’re a small business owner, do you have a photo of yourself and/or your team on your website? If the answer is no, call me!


Custom Portrait Session


  • In-studio photo session with up to three outfit changes
  • Three final digital files selected right after your portrait session with the ability to purchase more if needed

My most popular package, this session is for the person who wants some variety in their portraits with a mix of backgrounds & outfits.

Theses sessions are designed for small business owners and/or people who need their portraits to represent the many facets of their business and personality!

Investment: $490

Professional hair & makeup can be added for $200

Branding Session


  • On-location photo session
  • A mix of headshots, environmental portraits, and/or website or social media images

These sessions are designed to be a comprehensive photo session to provide you with marketing collateral for your business. They can include headshots, team photos, images of your office or workspace, images of you or your team working, etc.

Investment starting at: $690.

Please inquire for quote.

Professional hair & makeup can be added to these sessions. 

Team Composite Photos


  • Portrait of each team member photographed on a white background
  • Final team photo merged together in photoshop
  • Photos can be done on-location or in-studio

Team composite photos are great for businesses that have busy teams that are hard to gather all at one time.  A composite photo allows changes to the team members to be made without having to re-photograph each person.

Investment starting at $690

Please inquire for quote. Final price is based on the number of people in the team. Future changes to the team photo will be quoted at time of booking.

Basic Headshot


  • 15 min in-studio photo session on a grey or white backdrop
  • Same day selection of your final image
  • One final edited digital file emailed within 3 business days with the ability to purchase more if desired

A basic headshot session takes about 15 minutes and is ideal for the person who just wants an updated headshot for LinkedIn or their website.

This headshot session includes one outfit with a head & shoulders pose and takes place in my Minneapolis studio only. Your photo is selected immediately after your session.

Investment: $190

If you are interested in a basic headshot for multiple employees at your location of business, please inquire for an on-location quote.
