How To Prepare For Your Photoshoot

Here are some tips for preparing for a headshot photo session:

  • Choose the right outfit: Wear something that reflects the image you want to project.  If you are taking business headshots, choose clothing that is appropriate for a professional setting.  Avoid busy patterns, bright colors, and logos, as they can distract from your face, instead opt for solid colors or subtle patterns.
  • Practice your pose: Stand in front of a mirror and try out different poses to find the one that looks most natural and flattering. Practice smiling with your teeth and without your teeth.
  • Get some rest the night before
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Consider getting your hair and hair and makeup done.  This can help you feel more confident and polished in front of the camera.  Contact me and I can recommend someone that does hair and makeup.  If you are doing your own hair and make up, be sure not to overdue it.
  • Relax and have fun: Remember, a headshot is just a photo of your face. Don’t take it too seriously and try to relax and have fun during the photo session. This will help you look more natural and confident in your headshot.
