The Headshot Process

The Process of Getting a Professional Headshot

photoshoot Professional Headshot Photography in Asheville

Never had a professional photo shoot before? No worries! Many of my clients are first timers. I provide all the directions necessary when you arrive, and walk you through the experience. My goal is to make your photo shoot experience easy and enjoyable. Here is a basic summary of the process:

1. You book your appointment online.

2. You show up at the studio or location of your choice.

3. You pick your favorite images the same day from your private gallery provided.

4. You receive your final retouched images the very next day via email.

5. Your edited finals are delivered via email in two sizes: for print and web.

When you book your appointment we will discuss what your needs are for the images. What is your industry, what are the standards, how will you use the images, etc. We will also discuss wardrobe, background color choices, and makeup. I can also assist with wardrobe choices if needed. Making sure you get the images you need and love, is my primary goal. 🙂

What is included in the session?

+ 60 + mins of shooting time

+ Same day image proofing

+ Private gallery for one year

+ Retouching for your selected finals

+ 48 hr delivery in most cases

What is included in the image retouching?

Typical corrections I will make are: hair fly away removal, teeth whitening, blemish and spot removal, softening wrinkles as needed, color enhancement, or color changes. You can always let me know any particulars you’d like retouched and I’ll will be happy to take care of it. Custom editing is always included in your headshot session fee. Anything you need done within reason, let me know. 🙂

Leea Photographer Professional Headshot Photography in Asheville

Welcome to the world of headshot photography, where storytelling and human connection take center stage! 📸

People need stories. They weave a tapestry of connection and meaning in our lives, and that’s what I strive to capture through my work. A good photographer is also a storyteller, who works with you to convey your personal story to the world. As a photographer with over two decades of experience and a passion for storytelling, I believe that everyone has a unique story to share with the world.

In this age of selfies and AI, a genuine human connection is irreplaceable. My job is to create an image of you that not only captivates but also sparks curiosity in others to hear and see your story.

When you step into the studio, it’s all about you. I’ll take the time to get to know you, ask a few questions, and understand your needs, so we can craft the perfect image that resonates with your audience. If you’re new to professional headshots, no worries! I’ll be there to guide you through the entire experience, making sure it’s effortless and enjoyable.

My studio is a cozy space that feels like your living room. Located just minutes away from downtown Asheville in the River Arts district, it’s the perfect spot to explore and unwind. Summit Coffee is just behind the building, and downstairs you will find an artisan food pantry.

My clients come from diverse backgrounds, from banks and big corporations to musicians, writers, and actors – the whole spectrum! No matter who I’m working with, my mission remains the same: to show people in their very best light. It brings me joy to deliver high quality, professional results that help my clients improve their lives.

Get ready to make a positive change, pursue your passions, and express your uniqueness out in the world. I can’t wait to work with you and capture your story!

– Aomi, Business Owner

“Leea at Asheville Headshots is amazing! She made a person who does not like getting their photo taken feel very comfortable. She was quick and professional, and her studio is very relaxing. The photos turned out amazing, too, and I would NEVER say that about photos of myself! Highly recommend!”

– Mallory, Paralegal

“Leea is a true professional. There’s an attention to craft that’s unlike any photographer I’ve seen. She’s got all the tools and gadgets of a photographer that loves what she does. The studio is homey feeling and her preparation to capture you is uncanny. The prices are reasonable and even her shots unedited are beautiful. Her retouching is one of a kind. Getting headshots is indeed an investment of oneself, and Leea makes that a perfect investment. When I win an Oscar it’s going to be off one of Leea’s headshots hands down.

– Esmond, Actor

“In an area drowning in wedding and family photographers, finding someone who does quality portrait photography is incredibly difficult. Leea is an absolute storyteller with a camera. Her abilities in composition, timing, expression, and movement are unmatched in this area. If you’re looking for balanced, striking portraits that capture your personality, Leea has a keen eye for just that.”
