Why Choose Nechama Photography?
Brooklyn Headshot Photographer
I knew from the moment I picked up a camera that I wanted to photograph the human face. Capturing emotion in a still image is something that brings me immense joy. Working together with my clients; coaching, styling, getting those incredible headshots specifically for them, is why I have such a blast every day. (As is telling a corny joke where clients roll their eyes at the lameness of it and then crack up. Let me be honest here, that is a huge part of the fun).

Before you shoot
During your phone consultation we will discuss your vision for your brand and how you would like to be photographed. We will discuss what style images you need. For instance: Are you an actor who needs headshots for an audition? Do you need a LinkedIn headshot for new work? Do you need a portrait for a new album you will soon be releasing? We will also discuss wardrobe, location and posing to achieve the images of your dreams.
during your session
All you need to do on the day of the shoot is bring your wardrobe and yourself. You can relax and leave the styling and the posing up to me. Through my lighting set ups, posing from your toes to your eyebrows, I will create your personal branding images that you can use and share with pride!
After your session
Right after shooting we will sit and review all the images. We will then select the ones that you love. I will also send you a gallery of all my approved images in low resolution via digital download. Three weeks after the session you will receive the full resolution high end retouched edits of your choosing
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear?
For Artist and Social media headshots: Bring colors that bring out your skin tone and add contrast to your hair color. For women: Bring a few tank tops as they work best for headshots. For both men and women: Bring solid colored t-shirts, sweaters, button down shirts, and jackets. Layers add a nice touch to images. For Business and corporate headshots For women: A nice suit jacket with tank top underneath.

If you wear glasses try to bring every pair you own since some glasses have a glare with the lighting and some don't, If you own any in which you can simply pop out the glass those would be best.
What should I do if I don't purchase the makeup package?
If you purchased a package that did not include hair and makeup, please take time to have your hair and makeup professionally done before showing up. This way you can look your best and get the most out of your headshot session. Keep in mind, makeup should be extremely light.
