I. Preparing for your Professional Business Photo Session
Before your photoshoot, there are several things you can do to prepare for the best possible outcome. Follow these tips to make sure you are ready for your headshot session.
A. Choose the Right Outfit
Your outfit has a significant impact on the outcome of your headshot photos. Choose well-fitted and tailored clothing, as baggy clothing can make you look larger than you want. Solid-colored clothes work best, as patterns can be distracting and take away from your face. It is recommended to bring at least five different outfits to choose from.
B. Hair and Makeup
Hair and makeup are essential to achieving the perfect headshot. Consider hiring a professional stylist to help you achieve your desired look. Here are some additional tips for hair and makeup:
- Keep the makeup natural and light, as heavy makeup may not be flattering in a close-up shot. We recommend working with one of our MakeUp artists.
- Make sure your hair is styled in a way that makes you feel confident and comfortable. We recommend working we one of our Professional hairstylists.
C. Consider Your Neckline
The neckline of your clothing is essential since the headshot is a close crop on your head and shoulders. Choose a neckline that complements your face and emphasizes your best features.
D. Be Confident
We will coach you throughout the session yet a relaxed and confident attitude will make it easier and translate into great headshots.
II. Headshots Preparations for Ladies Only
Preparing for headshots can be different for men and women. Here are some additional tips for ladies to achieve the best possible outcome:
A. Keep it Simple
“Keep it simple” is the name of the game when it comes to makeup. Less is more, and heavy makeup can be very noticeable in a close-up shot.
