"I was dragging my feet for getting my headshots updated. I hated my previous pictures. Through a referral, I found Minneapolis Headshots and I am so glad I did! My pictures turned out so well, it was incredible! I had plenty of options to choose from. Additionally, working with Sarah and her team was an A+ experience. From the moment I sent my first email to the delivery of my final proofs, the entire experience exceeded all my expectations. And, it feels amazing to now have pictures that reflect my brand. Meanwhile, the reaction to my new headshots was immediate! Just swapping out my pics alone on LinkedIn and FB etc. drove a ton of traffic and organic interest in my business. "

"Sarah is such a pleasure to work with at every step. I had been avoiding getting headshots done, because I found it to be intimidating. She somehow made the process of getting headshots done simple, even fun! Every step in the process was easy - from reviewing package, booking a session online, the session itself, image review and final turnaround - Sarah was friendly, thorough and very timely throughout. And the final results were wonderful. Highly recommended!"

About Our Team

Sarah Pierce

Owner/Lead Photographer

"My greatest reward is helping clients see their beauty and capturing a fabulous image that they can be proud to use for their professional and social profiles."

Sarah listens to her clients and is very detail oriented. She's owned her business for 10+ years and focused the last 7 years solely on photographing professional headshots. She is the leading headshot photographer in the Twin Cities and has photographed thousands of professional headshots.

"We all tend to focus on those physical traits that we don't like, like a crooked tooth or those pesky crows feet. Things that most people might not even notice. I like to find the good things about each client. Sparkling eyes. An infectious smile. Dimples. Because when we focus on our good qualities, our true personality will shine through the photos."

Sarah started with film in college and developed her own prints (the old fashioned way -- in the darkroom!) She now uses digital cameras full time and loves keeping up with technology. She graduated from Concordia University in 1999 with a BA in Organizational Management and Communications. She is a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America.

Sarah is married to Dan and they have two children (ages 14 and 17) and a rescue dog named Clyde. They reside in Chanhassen, MN and love visiting Duluth, where Sarah was born.

Erik Bell

Associate Photographer

"Headshot photography is a unique profession. You are providing a service where the ultimate goal is a person being able to see the absolute best version of themselves. This is the most satisfying feeling."

Erik is a talented photographer, musician and all-around great guy. He recently moved here from California where he used his 10 years of administrative experience to manage a photography studio in downtown L.A. He has a knack for helping our clients look and feel their best and his friendly personality puts everyone at ease.

Erik graduated from Bethany College in Santa Cruz, CA where he pursued his two greatest passions: music and photography. When he's not working at the studio, he is an Audio Engineer and teaches guitar and drum lessons.

He lives in Minneapolis with his fiance and their 1-year-old daughter. He's excited to see and experience all that Minneapolis has to offer.

Q: Do you retouch images?
A: Select images from the session are retouched and all ordered images are fully retouched.

Q: Do you provide professional makeup services?
A: Professional makeup application is highly encouraged. It makes a nice difference on camera. We work with top notch artists who know how to apply makeup for on-camera. They are experienced in how certain makeup photographs. We partner with several different artists who work independently of our studio. You can choose to add on makeup when you book a session online or you can email us. Payment of $110 is made directly to them at the time of your session. All of our makeup artists accept cash, check, or credit card.

Q: Do you provide professional hair services?
A: If you add on professional makeup services, all of our artists will do some light touch-ups of your hair at no extra charge. This includes smoothing fly-aways and adding a bit of volume. If you'd like more extensive hair services such as curling or straightening, please let us know so we can choose an artist who is talented with hair. There is an additional charge of $25 for hair services which is paid directly to the artist. We do not offer blow-outs.

Q: How many proofs will I be presented with?
A: The number of proofs depends on the type of session and how many backgrounds/outfits changes you select. Those images that do not meet my high expectations as well as those images with eyes closed, heads turned, and unpleasing expressions are permanently deleted.

Q: I need to reschedule. How can I do that?
A: I understand that sometimes you might need to reschedule. Rescheduling a session is permitted in accordance with my business policy. I require at least 24-hours notice to reschedule a session. If you do not give 24-hours notice or if you don't show for your session, the session fee will be forfeited.

Q: Is the session fee refundable?
A: Completed sessions and no-shows are non-refundable. If you need to cancel beforehand, you may do so at least 72-hours prior to the session and you will be refunded your session fee. This policy is in place because I spend considerable time preparing for your session (studio, set and equipment set-up), and have forfeited offering your timeslot to another client. The easiest way to ensure you don't forfeit your session fee is to contact me to reschedule with more than 24-hours notice.

Q: What does the session fee cover?
A: The session fee covers the photographer's talent, time spent preparing and consulting with the client as well as time spent photographing, selecting and retouching images. Finally, it includes access to a private, online gallery with retouched images from your session to choose from. You also get one or more high resolution image (depending on session type) which can be used on websites, blogs, social media, business cards, etc. Ordered images are retained for 1 year after session for possible future use by client.

Q: How will I be able to view my proofs?
A: Within 7 days of your session, your photos will be presented to you in an online, private viewing gallery.
