Your professional headshot can be one of the most important photos you’ll ever have of yourself.
Yet people are often reluctant to have headshots taken. Some folks even dread everything from making time to schedule the photoshoot, to the time they spend in the session itself, to looking at proofs and final images. But it doesn’t have to be that way! I’m Kimberly Benfield of KBenfield Photography, and my mission is to make your professional headshot experience easy, convenient, and fun, throughout the entire process. I can’t tell you how many clients I’ve had who’ve told me something like this:

I am the guy who hates having my photo taken. I avoid it. I needed new photos… I met Kimberly Benfield, looked at her work, and after a while revealed to her my fears and discomfort about headshot photos…
…We were laughing and having fun soon after I arrived! The end result after detailed editing is much better than I ever expected…
…Looks like I spent a ton more than I did.
…Fantastic job! Thanks Kimberly!

The artistic process is a collaboration when you work with me.
You and I share everything during your professional headshot session. The inspiration… the planning… the creativity… the laughs! I’ve heard clients tell me their previous headshot experiences were entirely different from the way their photoshoot went with me. Whether it’s because the photographer had a pre-conceived notion of how a headshot should look, or didn’t have the time (or take the time) to connect, some of my clients have had un-fun previous experiences with headshot photography. My philosophy on professional headshots is completely different. To get headshot images you’ll love, we have to make the headshot experience something you’ll love! So I start with the notion that, as great as they might be, my ideas are not going to be the only brilliant ideas in the room! You are going to bring your own unique beauty and personality to the session, and we’ll blend your inspirations with my professional experience to co-create a wonderful result. I refuse to let your headshot experience be a drag… for either of us!
Our collaboration doesn’t stop when the session ends.
You’ll look at your images, choose the ones you like best, and then we’ll go back-and-forth polishing the photographs until they’re fantastic. I enjoy doing painstaking, detailed touch-up work to make your professional headshot even more of a representation of your true, authentic beauty. Every shot will look like YOU… but you at your very best! You… on your best hair day. After a really great night’s sleep. You… the one the folks who love, admire, and respect you will recognize as the REAL real you. From your email signature to your company’s promotional materials, people will recognize your true beauty in the professional headshot you and I create together.
I have a great system for professional headshots.
I do a lot of work with people on their professional images, and I’ve learned ways to make the entire headshot experience easy and fun, from scheduling to final photographs. That’s our time to connect, to collaborate, to create, and to make your headshot session the highlight of your day! And no matter how many headshots I’m doing for your firm, I’m still going to keep collaborating with you (and with every other member of your team) until you’re completely thrilled with your professional headshot. I won’t let the experience be something you dread, or remember unhappily… or be demeaning, uncomfortable, or un-fun in any way. Your professional headshot experience should be – and will be – something you remember with a smile! I do whatever it takes to make the experience empowering and enjoyable for every member of your team. Most of the time, clients tell me their company’s headshot experience was almost like a team-building exercise! And that’s the kind of feedback I love.

My firm hired Kimberly to take headshots and group images of our team and we were impressed with the process from start to finish. From planning the shoot to receiving the final edited images, every step was executed flawlessly…
We also appreciated Kimberly's strong attention to detail as she worked to perfect our images, both during the shoot and through editing them, with a keen eye to all of our requests… Offered us a competitive rate for the work she performed…
Compared to other photographers, Kimberly stands out…
The most attentive and aware of the needs of corporate clients…
A safe bet…
Exceptional customer service.

Individual Studio or Outdoor Headshots:
$200 includes 2 fully retouched full resolution headshots.
$150 includes one fully retouched full resolution headshot.
How it works - Studio headshots are typically taken with a solid white, light gray, dark gray, bright blue, or black background. However, I have several other options and can also add a digital background for an additional $40. I shoot these headshots tethered to my laptop so we get instant feedback on the images. After taking a few we discuss your likes and dislikes and adjust the shoot to your preferences. We then go through all of the images on the laptop where you can choose the images that you would like me to edit and retouch for you. Outdoor headshots are taken at a local park or urban area close to my studio. After taking multiple images I will send you a proofing gallery of 5 to 10 of the best images for you to choose your favorites that you would like edited and retouched.
After retouching I send the images to you where you can request additional retouches or give me your final approval. I am absolutely dedicated to making sure your headshot is exactly the way you would like it to be. I typically have the headshots ready for you within a week, however, I am often able to accommodate tighter deadlines.
I charge a session fee of $235 to come to your location or $100 session fee for Studio headshots. Additional pricing per headshot image is as follows:
$50/image photo editing & retouching for 1-2 images
$40/image photo editing & retouching for 3-20 images
$35/image photo editing & retouching for 21-50 images
How it works: I take multiple images and upload 3-5 of the best images to a proofing gallery for individuals to then choose their favorite image for me to edit and retouch. I can provide an online signup form for groups of 10 or more.
