Due to the Covid-19 virus and the fact that I am in a High Risk age group and am currently under medical care, I will not be doing any photoshoots or provide any photographic services until further notice.
Thank you for your understanding.

Professional Headshots and Portraits in Las Vegas
For Actors, Models, Entertainers, Social Media
When you want or need more than just a business headshot.
When you need A portrait to show your character or present a look, style and image meant for someone or something special — When you want a portrait for the one you love — Or — when you just want to do some fun photos that will capture the true you or who you are At this time in your life.
ACTOR, MODEL and ENTERTAINER Style headshots
Get headshots and portraits in the style needed to get the type of work or the reaction you want. Actors and Modeling Photos, Headshots and Portraits should be regularly updated to show changes in age, weight, hair length, hairstyles, hair color, beards, etc. Do a Combination Session with two or more different Looks and Styles. Natural, “Commercial Looks” for Actors and Models are a must-have. Our Business Style Headshots are more in that style, but something more Theatrical should be considered as well. A change in the Lighting, Makeup and Hair and Attitude will give you a totally different much more exciting and fun look.
We Love Shooting Exciting, Fun, Sexy, Glamorous Headshots and Portraits
We like doing shoots with great lighting, more eccentric styling and overall stronger and more aggressive feeling that are a notch above the typical headshots.
But Commercial headshots are the most important. generally, casual, warm, friendly, natural, realistic, and objective images of a person that allow the viewer to feel an affinity or kinship to the subject, so that they will want to know that person. They are never over-styled, over-made up or over-retouched and should represent the subject as they appear in real life. Photographic lighting should be soft and flattering with no harsh shadows. Maybe just a little bit boring? But still the most important for most.
THEATRICAL STYLE HEADSHOTS
Theatrical headshots get to show more the character and type(s) of roles that the subject feels they are best suited for or want to get. Theatrical headshots are more dramatic in lighting styles and looks than Commercial Style Headshots and sometimes use props and locations or settings. It is acceptable for the subject to portray a look or style and the photographer to enhance that style using dramatic and more unusual styles of lighting, camera angles, lens choices, and backdrops. Actors will often have a variety of Theatrical Headshots showing different types of looks so they can target different types of work or roles. These are the most fun to do.
Fashion Beauty Style HEADSHOTS
are a special mix. They are fun to shoot. While Glamorous they usually do not invite the viewer into the photo. While Theatrical, they mostly show the eccentric, the beautiful and the unobtainable. Fashion and Beauty headshots show strong attitudes and often tend to be detached from the viewer of the photo. There is frequently an arrogance, bored look, almost of disdain for the viewer of the image, and what sometimes appear to be for life itself. Eye contact is limited, and then often the model is looking down to the camera adding to the illusion of superiority. They are usually heavily styled, heavily retouched and mostly reserved to those with, slender faces, large eyes, full mouths, and angular features – traditional “pretty” is not a requirement. It is more how all the features work together.
GLAMOROUS STYLE HEADSHOTS
Every decade seems to have its own style for Glamor. Great makeup and hair makes for great glamorous headshots. It takes special skills to ensure that the result is beautiful and not just tacky and overdone. Smokey eyes, false lashes, stronger contouring, wet, glossy, mouths, full lips, combined with luxurious, full hair styles, often made fuller with clip-in extensions … or dramatic shorter styles all work to complete the looks. Much like Fashion and Beauty headshots these are fun to do.
Great Makeup and Hair –Super important for
COMMERCIAL, ACTOR, MODELS, Personal HEADSHOTS and Portraits
MAKEUP AND HAIR for Theatrical Style Headshots
Christiné can tailor the look desired for the client’s shots. Getting then look you want can involve a lot of creative work with both the makeup and hair styling. Women’s styles can range from secretary to call-girl to prim and prissy Sunday School teacher looks, to business executive, to femme fatale. Men can go from politicians to gangsters, to farmers, ranch hands, soldiers, athletes and more, to commercial looks to put together a great Actor or Model’s Composite, Zed card and Portfolio.
MAKEUP AND HAIR for Commercial Headshots
Commercial Style Headshot and Portraits should be natural looking but enhanced to look good for photography. Blemishes should be covered, eye circles lightened and mild contouring to give a clean and fresh look. A light and skilled touch is needed to keep a natural but enhanced finish with shine reduced to no more than a healthy “glow” and hair neat but in the style you normally wear.
MAKEUP and HAIR for Fashion and Beauty
Fashion and Beauty makeup and hairvshould be perfectly and creatively applied. Beauty shots in particular require superb techniques as they are usually in close and flaws and poor application will ruing the look. Both genres frequently do unusual, unique, and or extreme styles. It is a lot of fun.
Need More Than Just Great Headshots and Portraits?
CUSTOM Photoshoots for BOTH Great HEADSHOTS and BODY SHOTS
Many entertainers, dancers, actors, models and other types of professionals need BOTH — headshots and full-length shots — Photos that show their figure, physique, and body proportions. Shooting full length shots has special needs for the best result. The lighting needs to light the full body to its best advantage and is different for every need. Swimsuit and Fitness modeling requires lighting that shows body definition and musculature, while for fashion the subjects need to show long slender arms, legs, and torso that can carry high fashion looks. Dancers may want to show special moves or techniques that require freezing the action. Convention models might just need to show their basic figure and proportions but without the glitz needed for fitness shots.
