Tips for Taking a Great Headshot

What You Should Know Before You Take a Photo

Dress to Impress

Wear professional, wrinkle-free attire with solid colors that complement your skin tone. Refrain from wearing patterns, logos, other graphics, and reflective jewelry that can distract from the image.  

Posture Is Important

Sit up straight with your shoulders back to showcase your confidence. Bringing your chin slightly down and pushing your forehead slightly forward can accentuate the jawline for a flattering photo. 

Check the Mirror

Take a few minutes to make sure you look your best — fix your hair, check your makeup, trim your facial hair, and clean your glasses! We will help make minor adjustments in the studio when you are ready to go. 

Relax and Smile

It’s natural to feel a bit nervous in front of the camera. Take a deep breath and know that we are here to help you feel comfortable and confident with your final images.
