HOW TO PREPARE

HOW TO GET THE BEST OUT OF YOUR HEADSHOTS PHOTO SESSION

Come Well Rested

On your headshot we want you to look fresh and full of energy. It’s not a good idea to go out the night before. Instead get some rest. If you happen to get sick and the deadline is not pressing, it’s better to reschedule. We want you to shine and look your best.

Hair and Skin

Please do your best at preparing yourself to look sharp. Make sure your face is washed and hydrated with an organic cream. A fresh haircut or a blowout would do wonders. We work with professional groomers. Please contact us if you would like to request one for an additional $200-

What to Wear

Appearance is key in a photo shoot. Consider your photo session an opportunity to upgrade your look. Treat yourself to a new shirt, jacket, designer glasses. When you’re preparing for your session, ask yourself about the general attire of people in your line of work. What kind of image do you want to portray? If you’re looking for a professional LinkedIn photo, you’re going to want to wear a suit, even if your current job title doesn’t demand you wear one. When you’re looking to climb the corporate ladder or switch careers, the more professional the look, the better.

If you’re looking for a professional bio picture for a business website, Twitter or a Facebook photo you’ll want to dress more professionally, while appearing slightly more casual. A jacket or blazer can still work wonders, but consider whom you need to address first.

BUSINESS HEADSHOTS

Ladies
Dark jackets photograph well, but a solid color blouse or a sweater could be just fine. Make sure to bring your make-up and a hairbrush for touchups. Getting a haircut or blowing your hair in a salon before your session will make a big difference. Try to stay away from the sleeveless or short sleeve shirts.

Gentlemen
We recommend dark blue or black suits. A matching tie would look great even if you normally don’t wear it. Solid colors are better for pictures. Make sure all clothes are clean and ironed. Clean shave or a beard trim is essential. Try to do it right before your session or feel free to do it at our studio. Please bring your hairbrush for touchups.

INFORMAL HEADSHOTS

Bring the clothes you love to wear, something that makes you feel great. Feel free to bring a few things to choose from. New cloths look nice and fresh. It may be a good idea to get something new that works best with the style you choose.

Bright solid colors work best. You want to pop out of hundreds of other shots. Make sure all the clothes are clean and ironed.
