I was so anxious heading into my session, and the minute I pulled up I felt SO at ease! The session was so much fun, and Barb really took the time to get to know a little about me and my types to help me find the right looks to display. My proofs were absolutely stunning and I'm only sad that I had to narrow it down!! I cannot recommend Barb highly enough, especially if you're feeling a little anxious about getting your headshots done. She was the absolute best and I will be coming back for many sessions in the future!
I have now found the only headshot photographer I will ever need: Barb Jones!
Before the photo shoot even begins, Barb provides Actors with great resources that help you gain a better understanding of what to expect and knowing your type. At the shoot, Barb made me feel super comfortable. She had a great eye for what outfits/backgrounds to use. We were able to achieve so many different looks in our time together. She helped with any makeup/hair touch ups. Barb gave great analogies for what kind of character each photo was capturing so, as an Actor, I was able to immediately drop in and never felt like I was on my own island trying to get, "THE shot." We had fun and even sang musical theatre songs together! After the shoot, she helped give me valuable feedback and explanations on what photos she thought would be strongest (from a Casting Director's perspective). Barb knows the industry! Her professional wisdom helped me avoid the decision fatigue. (Side note: Even unedited, her photos were Amazing) So, when I got the edited version backs I could not have been more pleased!
I knew that Barb was highly recommended before booking her. And now, I know first hand why that is. Highly recommend! I can't wait to work with her again!
I was so excited when I was able to book a session with Barb. I had heard so many good things about her work. The whole experience exceeded my expectations. From the time I arrived until my departure, I was given preferential treatment. During the shoot she was great at providing directions and she was kind and caring. I was extremely pleased with the final headshots, and I'm looking forward to working with her again.
Barb is the best of the best! She is such a kind and talented person, and she knows exactly what she’s doing! I had my first ever headshot session with her, and she made the process so fun and easy! The variety of shots we got were absolutely amazing! I love Barb and can’t wait to work with her again in the future!
We LOVE Barb. Absolutely adore her. She is an incredible photographer, and such a sweet person. She was so great with my children, and the headshots that came from that shoot are my favorite ones EVER. We can't wait to work with her again. We will be back for years to come!
Barb is the best photographer I've ever worked with! She made our session so much fun and we achieved a wide variety of looks that are already helping me get jobs!
Make sure to book her now!
I recently had a consultation with a coach who told me "your headshots are keeping you from getting cast because they don't look anything like you!" My agent, and several other actor friends, recommended Barb for some new ones and I am so happy they did! The session was great! She made me feel like I'd known her for years. She really took her time with me and got lots of different shots with different backgrounds, angles, poses, and in different wardrobes so that when she sent me the proofs for my final selections, I had lots of good ones to choose from.
My only problem was that I had so many I liked it was hard for me to narrow them down!
Barn was great and I will definitely be using her in the future!
My son and I traveled from New Orleans to shoot with Barb, and I’m so pleased we did. Barb was masterful in bringing out some great looks, and the whole shoot was super enjoyable - even for a 7 year old! Thank you, Barb!
I had never had actor headshots taken before and Barb made the experience a truly memorable one. Not only did Barb take phenomenal headshots, she genuinely made the whole occasion a fun and relaxing time. I have already referred her to others and I will continue to do so. Barb is a true professional and I look forward to collaborating with her in the days to come.
Working with Barb was an absolutely amazing experience! I was a little nervous about the process, as I had never done headshots before, but Barb made me feel more than comfortable and made the whole experience fun and easy! I look forward to working with Barb more in the future.
