I work with all my clients to create strong headshots they can send out to represent themselves to the world.

Whether you need:

  • Personal branding headshots
  • Professional corporate or medical headshots
  • ERAS medical residency headshots
  • Acting and modeling portfolio headshots

I can help you look and feel confident in your images.

See examples of my work below, and get pricing information for both personal in-studio sessions and on-site group scheduling.

Professional Headshots for Personal Branding Clients

These sessions are perfect for individuals, actors and performers, authors, comics and all other business professionals who need strong images for advertising, general brand building and social media sites.

(They're also perfect stand-in images on video conference call apps on those days when you don't want to turn on your camera!)

Pricing for individuals

We currently offer three packages for professional headshots for individuals. 

    • $149 —Social Media Session
      One look, pure white background, this is just what you need for LinkedIn or as a stand in when you don't want to go live on Zoom! Clean, simple and fast, you'll be in and out in under 45 minutes. This package includes one high-resolution retouched digital image with personal/promotional licensing rights. Additional digital images and prints available for purchase.

    • $249 — Standard Session
      Perfect for business professionals, actors and other performers. With this session you can bring one alternate clothing choice and we will work with 2-3 different backgrounds and lighting styles. Allow about an hour and a half for the shoot. This package includes three high-resolution retouched digital images with personal/promotional licensing rights. Additional  digital images and prints available for purchase.

    • $599 — Extended Session
      Extended portfolios for business professionals, actors, other performers and models. We will
      work with four or five unique clothing changes and build a diverse portfolio of looks, including full length body shots. Allow three hours for the shoot. This package includes ten high-resolution retouched digital images with personal/promotional licensing rights. Additional digital images and prints available for purchase.

    Hair and makeup: I find that the majority of my clients do not need a professional hair/makeup artist for their shoot, as we are going for a more natural/everyday look. If you'd like hair and makeup done before a session I suggest booking at a local salon just prior to your session time.

Professional Headshots for Corporate and Medical Clients

These sessions are designed for businesses and medical facilities that need strong, consistent and professional headshots for all their staff members. We can design a specific look for you, or match any existing corporate brand standards.

We can work onsite, or you can have your staff come individually to our studio for their sessions.

We come to you!

Our headshot sessions are designed to be fast, fun and easy for everyone involved. Before the shoot we will work with you to determine the best background and lighting setup to suit your brand. We can match existing shots you're already using, or create a new look.

We will send you information to provide your employees about what to wear, and on the day of the shoot we will guide everyone through a variety of poses and expressions designed to get the best possible headshots to serve your business's needs. For an additional fee we can also bring a stylist along on the day of the shoot, to ensure everyone is looking their best! 

Pricing for Groups/Corporate Usage

Group and corporate needs differ, as does end-usage of images. We like to talk to all new clients to assess their individual needs before we set up a shoot. After a brief chat we can work up a custom quote to suit your business's budget and use case.

Contact the studio at or 314.328.9949 for a detailed quote!

What Our Clients Say

Susan was a joy to work with! I needed headshots for my work as a writer and small business owner. I came in with a particular look in mind, something moody and good for publishing fiction. She delivered. She listened to my vision for the session and created a really calm environment.

Susan was so professional and knowledgeable! My headshots turned out amazing and I would highly recommend her!

I did the Standard Session with Susan and I was thrilled with the overall experience. She had tons of tips & tricks to capture a great professional headshot and she was super patient during the photoshoot. I couldn’t be happier with the final portrait. She was also lots of fun to talk to during the photoshoot and made it all very comfortable & enjoyable. Would definitely recommend.

Susan was amazing! Not only did she make me completely comfortable during my head shot session, but I was thrilled with how the pictures turned out! She was super responsive and helpful to any questions I had on editing, and the turnaround time was very prompt, even during the holiday season. I highly recommend Ooh St. Lou Studios for anyone looking for headshots.

Susan was excellent. She was able to work with me on a short deadline. I was very pleased with her work. She knew exactly how to make me look good on camera and coached me into the headspace to “model.” She was very professional, prompt in her communications, and works quickly but without losing quality when she did the touchups. In addition, she was very friendly and chatty, which helped the photo session go by quickly!

Susan was a delight to work with. I was able to provide direction on what I was looking to achieve, we reviewed a number of looks, and the shoot in her studio allowed for the perfect number of different looks. The “hour and some change” session flew by. It was great to finally get some fresh professional headshots and I felt the value for the quality I received fit my expectations nicely. I’m sure I’ll be a repeat customer in a couple more years. Support local entrepreneurs!

My acting headshots came out looking incredible! If you are an actor looking for professional headshots, there is no better place to go than right here.

Susan is outstanding. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to photograph my team but her. She just “gets” how a headshot should be.

Susan was amazing! Not only did she make me completely comfortable during my headshot session, but I was thrilled with how the pictures turned out! She was super responsive and helpful to any questions I had on editing, and the turnaround time was very prompt, even during the holiday season. I highly recommend Ooh St. Lou Studios for anyone looking for headshots.

I recently contacted Susan for some updated headshots, and I am beyond pleased with the results!

Before we even met, Susan was very clear and up-front about what to expect in the session. She also tasked me with coming up with examples and inspiration pictures of what I was looking for, so that we were both prepared and no time was wasted for either of us.

The session itself was pleasantly time-efficient. Susan was obviously experienced enough to know what kind of poses and expressions would be effective for the shots’ purposes.

Aside from the normal actor headshots, we also had a bit of time to play around with a couple of fun shots that weren’t quite so serious. It took a remarkably short amount of time to receive both the untouched proofs as well as the final products that I ultimately chose to purchase.

I’d recommend Susan to anyone seeking out professional headshots in a heartbeat!

Susan Bennet at Ooh St. Lou Studios is brilliant! I recently had studio photos and portraits done with her and I cannot emphasize how wonderful my experience was. The process was wonderfully creative and absolutely professional. Susan is incredibly talented and has a true understanding of all facets of photography and lighting.

Watching her get creative with the lighting and shots was a terrific learning experience for me as well. She is welcoming and a joy to work with, her humor and great taste in music, among other things, create a collaborative, comfortable, creative and fun environment for any one to be a part of. Needless to say my photos came out beautiful and exceeded my expectations completely. Ooh St. Lou Studios is at the top of my recommendation list for any one needing photos.

Susan is a great photographer. She took the time to make sure everything was perfect for my physicians’ head shots. While doing the shots she worked with each person to make sure they looked their best, was professional and personable. I am very happy with the final product and will be using her services again.

Fabulous First Photo Session for My Aspiring Model Daughter! We contacted Susan and Ooh St. Lou Studios to shoot my teenage daughter’s modeling portfolio. My daughter has aspirations but no professional experience, so for this shoot Susan had to play the role of teacher and guide, as well as photographer. She handled both roles beautifully – and the resulting photos prove it! Anya’s photos are amazing, and the range of moods and expressions Susan captured is incredible. Susan is as patient and personable as she is creative. Anya and I both enjoyed this experience immensely – Susan absolutely exceeded my expectations!

Susan Bennet is one of the best photographers that I have worked with, and I have worked with quite a few. She provided on set production stills and behind-the-scenes photography for a feature film, and her work is beyond exceptional. I believe that she has the talent and skill-set to cover nearly any possible wish that you may have, anything from event photography to head shots. Not only is she extremely talented, she is also extremely pleasant to work with! If you want great photos done in a timely and professional manner, than look no further than Ooh St. Lou Studios!

As a performer and promoter in the St. Louis Comedy scene, I’ve used Ooh St. Louis Studios to record live performances and to produce professional head shots for my portfolio. They have always been helpful, easy to work with, and have provided me with high quality photography and video.

Independent comedy shows typically happen in venues where lighting and sound can be very challenging, and in every case Ooh St. Lou has overcome that obstacle. I highly recommend using their services. – Chris Cyr

Susan provided excellent service throughout the entire process, even helping me decide on wardrobe choices for my headshots. She captured a wide variety of poses and styles that all made me look professional and polished. The turnaround time was very quick on the final images, exceeding my expectations. I’m very happy with the range of professional headshots which I can tailor to different media platforms and professional uses.

Amazing photographer—I could not be more pleased with the portraits Susan took for my business. I commented on some of the photos in her gallery that I really admired, let her know what I do professionally, and provided a very general idea about what I needed. She took all of that into consideration and came up with the perfect venue and time of day for my session. Her talent is amazing and I let her guide the photo shoot trusting her completely. Susan was so easy to work with. My photos turned out great and were ready sooner than I anticipated. I hope to have the opportunity to work with her again!

I cannot recommend Ooh St. Lou Studios enough! Reliable, timely, and a joy to work with, Judas and I will continue to work with Ooh St. Lou Studios on upcoming photography and videography projects for our promotional needs, and I encourage other artists in the St. Louis area to do the same!
