TIPS FOR YOUR HEADSHOT OR PORTRAIT SESSION
Firstly, wear something comfortable! If you don't like it, it'll show in the pictures.
Women: Bring crisply ironed solid color tops that fit you well and an optional jacket. Jewelry should be minimal if at all. It can be distracting _ and over time, it will also date the images.
Men: Bring solid color pressed shirts that fit well around your neck. A variety of solid T-shirts plus button shirts are also good to bring. A suitcoat or sport jacket is a nice way to create an optional look.
HAIR & MAKEUP:
Women: You should look like you -- just a polished up version. Less is usually better; be especially mindful of not overdoing it with eye makeup. Bring your make-up and hair products in case we need to touch-up during the shoot. Alternatively, we can explore hiring a professional hair and makeup artist who can attend the session and do touchups throughout as needed. If that's desired, let me know ahead of time and I'll PROVIDE YOU WITH OPTIONS SO WE CAN BOOK THAT AHEAD OF TIME.
Men: I do not recommend make-up services for men. However, you should make sure to be nicely groomed (beard, nose, eyebrows and ears).
Both: Bring a hairbrush, comb or pick to keep your hair in check. If you have long hair, bring a scrunchy or rubberband to put it up for an alternative look.
If you wear glasses, bring as many pairs as you have. The quality of glass will make a significant difference in limiting glare. We will also try looks without wearing glasses.
STAY WELL HYDRATED, DRINKING PLENTY OF WATER IN THE DAYS LEADING UP TO THE SESSION
USE AND BRING LIP BALM IN THE DAYS LEADING UP TO THE SESSION.
GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP AND BE ASSURED YOU’RE IN GOOD HANDS!
