How to get ready for your Photoshoot
What Should I wear?
What you wear for your headshot is just as important as your expression. Keep it simply. It will enhance your features and keep the focus on your face. Bring several number of styles and colors. Then we can see what colors work for you and see what is best upon your target audience.
if you don’t love it then do not wear it. It is that simple. Bring clothing you feel great on. This is about showing the real you at your best. Being yourself is the key element of a successful photoshoot. There is lot of opportunities during the shoot to add your own personal style. My suggestions at all times is to stick with solid colors.
Hair & Make-up
I always sugest not to try anything new or crazy for a headshot an least you are 100% sure you will be happy with your look. keep it simple. This is about showing the real you.
if you are not experienced at applying makeup and styling your hair for photo shoots, consider getting it done professionally for your headshot photoshoot. I can hook you up with makeup artists whose work I trust–they’ll know the makeup that looks fresh and natural on camera and will make you look your best.
Drink plenty of water in the week prior to your headshot photoshoot, as this will keep your skin plump, smooth and clear. Try to eat healthy foods, as fried and salty foods cause bloating and water retention. Also avoid sun exposure, which can make you look tired and leave your skin irritated. Get plenty of sleep to avoid dark circles under your eyes!
I invite my male clients to arrive at the shoot with stubble or beard for the first shots. In between looks you can shave so we can get a cleaner look, however some men’s skin becomes red and irritated after immediately shaving so this option may work for some better than others.
Because I use off camera artificial lighting extensively during portrait photography sessions, I am very flexible in regards to weather, time of day, and location. However, that doesn’t mean some times are more ideal than others usually the worst time to shoot is high Finanoon or whenever the sun is at its peak height. The sun is most harsh at this time and most natural light photographers won’t even attempt it. I can and do work with harsh sun routinely, but lighting isn’t the biggest factor for this type of shoot.
Finally, Be in communication with your photographer before your session. You should definitely feel that your photographer cares about you and you’re not just another client. Be sure to ask them any questions you have and a good photographer should take the time to answer your questions and put you at ease. On the day of the photoshoot make sure the you are in text message communication with your photographer, that way they can help you if you’re having any trouble finding the location or for anything else that comes up. This is your photoshoot, it should be a special event where you feel supported by your photographer throughout the process and great communication is definitely a big part of that.
