I found Rashidah after spending WAY too much on a different company's headshot that I was not happy with. I decided to give Rashidah's 15 minute mini-session a shot, and am so happy I did. She was great to work with, efficient with the time, and produced a perfect headshot for me in 15 minutes at a fraction of the cost of most other companies. She is very sweet and made me feel very comfortable. I wish I had gone to her in the first place and will go back anytime I need other photos done.
Top to bottom, Rashidah was incredible to work with.
Her pricing structure is unbeatable for the value she offers. Her studio space is easy to get to and in a quiet area, which made shooting exterior shots painless (no competing with hordes of pedestrians for sidewalk real estate!). Scheduling through her website was quick and easy. She offered an incredibly relaxed atmosphere for a comfortable photo shoot session, and worked fast. We were able to fit two looks with both interior and exterior shots for each look in a half hour session. During each section, she was sure to show me how some of the shots were turning out in order to make sure I was satisfied with what we were getting. She also went through the images, removed the out-of-focus and closed-eye shots, and got the full batch untouched photos uploaded and sent to me the same day. Incredible turnaround time! Obviously retouched images would take longer but being able to start that review process the same day is a wonderful time-saver. When I need to update my shots in the future, I will be sure to reach out to Rashidah again. I just hope her rates don’t go up *too* much before then!
With her direction I went from looking nervous and tense on film to looking relaxed and comfortable and it really shows in my photos. We shot Friday morning and by Saturday morning she had delivered my selected retouched photos to my inbox. I've received a ton of compliments on my photos already and now I'm excited to showcase my new headshots for my social profiles and for my business branding. I've already recommended Rashidah to two other people and I would recommend her for anyone who is looking to get their headshots done quickly, affordably and professionally!
I reached out to Rashidah after she came up in a google search. Her prices were so generous and reasonable compared to the other headshot photographers I was checking out, I have to admit I was afraid she might be too good to be true. Happily, I was wrong about that. Throughout my experience she was responsive, flexible with scheduling and a lovely person. And the best news of all? I love my pictures and had many choices out of a short session. Thank you Rashidah for providing an affordable option for anyone needing great photos!
