Mini Session FAQ

Are You Ready?

So you grabbed one of our coveted mini session slots? Fantastic! There are a few things you need to know because things run a little bit differently compared to our regular sessions. Make sure to read everything on this page so that you are prepared to get the most out of your spot. These sessions are small, but we can get a surprising amount done in a short time as long as you are prepared.

Where does the shoot take place?

We are partnering with Forum Miami Coworking space at 275 Alhambra Cir, Coral Gables, FL 33134 and will be set up in their downtown Coral Gables location.

What comes with my session?

Included in your small but mighty session is a ten-minute, one look photo shoot shoot. This is perfect to get one, targeted look to add to your portfolio. Whether you want to get something more dramatic or more commercial, have a specific idea of what you need before you come in and you will get the most out of it. After the session you will immediately see and select your favorite image to be retouched and delivered to you within 2-3 business days. At that time you will also have the opportunity to purchase additional retouched images at a discounted rate of $40 per image. We don’t offer online galleries for mini-sessions so be ready to choose your image the day of your session.

What about hair and makeup?

We always recommend that you consider professional hair and makeup for any session, no matter the size. Because of the back-to-back nature of the mini sessions event, we are unable to open up our location for hair and makeup prior to your session. Make sure to have your hair and makeup completely done when you arrive, there won’t be time or space to do it. If you are looking to have a professional provide you with fantastic hair and makeup for your shoot, email us for a list of local pros we recommend.

What do I wear?

  • Steer clear of white tops. The eye is always drawn to the brightest thing in the image. For your headshot, we want that to be your face. 
  • Choose colors that complement your natural coloring. Muted, solid colors are best, leave the neon clothes at home. Check out this article on our blog on how to pick the right colors for your skin tone. 
  • Avoid anything with busy patterns or shiny materials. It’s all about your face, your expression, not the clothes.
  • Bring something extra to grab a quick second look. A cool jacket, a pair of glasses, something you can throw on real quick and add a little zing to your shot.
  • Make sure you come wearing the clothes you will be photographed in. There won’t be time to sort through loads of selections. Bring one backup top if you are having trouble deciding. 
  • Your bottom half will not be in the photo so wear whatever is comfortable for you. Heads and shoulders only. 
  • Jewelry is not recommended. If you have simple studs in your ears or a very simple necklace, that’s fine, but leave the funky and chunky pieces at home. 
  • Make sure your clothes are clean and pressed with no branded logos. We don’t retouch out logos and wrinkles.
What are my background options?

We will start with a classic white background and have the option for black also.  We will have a couple alternative environmental portrait locations around the FORUM workspace. You can just let us know what background you like when you arrive, or we can pick the best one for you based on your wardrobe choices.

What else do I need to be ready?

If you have gone through all these questions, you should be pretty much ready to go. Here are a few last minute things to prepare before your session:

  • Plan to arrive ten minutes early. If you are late, you will probably lose your spot. There are no refunds and no rescheduling if you are late. Be on time, be prepared and it will be awesome.
  • If you are wearing makeup, make sure to bring your powder with you when you come. The camera and lights often require a little more foundation than you might be used to wearing and it only takes a second to cut the shine down.
  • Don’t get your haircut within 48 hours of the shoot. Give your noggin a couple of days to recover from your new “do” before you put that bad boy on camera.
  • Don’t make any drastic changes to your appearance right before the session. You are going to be setting yourself up for disappointment. Your headshot should look like you plan to show up for auditions so don’t go overboard. 
  • Get a good night’s rest before the session and avoid drinking alcohol or eating salty foods for 24-48 hours ahead of time. Being tired, hungover, and full of fried food can make you look puffy and blotchy. Rest, drink lots of water, and come ready to knock it out of the park. 
  • If you have any questions about your session or need any advice or help leading up to the date, email gustavo@gustavofernandez.com or text (305) 204-1300, we are here for you!
