Tips for preparing for your professional headshot.

  • Dress in solid-colored, simple clothing that you will be comfortable wearing
  • Keep away from shirts with logos or loud prints/patterns (very small patterns are okay)
  • Avoid wearing white, as it tends to hog all the attention in a photograph, medium to dark tones are best
  • Looser fitting clothing will be more flattering when seated
  • Shirts with sleeves are more flattering than tank tops and/or sleeveless shirts
  • Please make sure your clothing is free of wrinkles
  • Just before the session, please dab a little concealer on any noticeable blemishes (yes, guys too!)
  • Use lip balm or gloss to keep your lips from looking too dry
