Do I need a professional headshot?

The answer is yes. The purpose of taking an acting headshot or a professional headshot is to market and brand yourself. It takes less than a second for your headshot to make an impression. All actors, non-actors, models, and professionals need effective representation.

Do I need to hire a professional makeup artist for my headshot session?

Hair and makeup artists can help kids and adults look their best and achieve a variety of looks. For this reason, I highly recommend hiring one of the artists I use because they have been working with me for years and have been trained in supporting my style of shooting. It is the job of a makeup artist to enhance the natural beauty of my subjects. They know what makeup works best on camera, where to contour to draw attention to the most prominent features. Makeup artists know how to smooth over teens with challenging skin tones and accent face shapes from the different angles that I use. The wrong makeup, or even no makeup, results in a headshot that does not look polished and professional.

You are welcome to arrive at your appointment with your hair and makeup done.

Do you work with babies and toddlers?

Currently, I photograph kids,teens and young adults from age 4-24 but talent managers and agencies are always looking for fresh new faces. If you have a baby or toddler that LOVES the camera, please reach out

Do you work with adults?

Although I specialize in working with kids through young adults, I love to work with actors and entrepreneurs of all ages.

Do you offer any discounts?

YES!  It is incredibly rewarding when clients are so happy with their photos that they refer friends and family. 
Here is our referral program.  For each person you refer, you will get a $20 CREDIT to use towards your next session. Please send an email to ts@traceyspero.com with the names of those you have referred so that we can keep track of them!

Referrals will only be credited once the new client has booked and completed their headshot session.  An incoming client must mention you as the person who referred them.

Please note, discounts cannot be applied to headshot special rates. 

What to wear?

​A pinterest board of clothing suggestions will be sent to you ​in a confirmation email ​once your appointment is booked. If you would like me to look at your clothing options before the session, I will be happy to offer you advice.

If possible, please email me images of your clothing before the session so we can make any necessary adjustments.

​When will my images be ready?

Depending on the time of year, you will receive a gallery within 7-10 business days after our photoshoot. Additionally, I offer a rush delivery service that allows you to receive your gallery within 24 to 48 business hours of your session.

​Where do photoshoots take place?

​For kids and teens, headshot sessions are held at the Centerport, New York studio, while branding sessions for music artists, corporations, real estate agents, etc​, ​are held at a scouted location that fits their brand.
