A professional headshot is an investment in yourself, that can be used as a marketing tool. Having a high-quality photograph of yourself tells a story.
Everything from the background, facial expression, to the clothes you wear is important and allows the audience to get a glimpse into who you are.
You’ve booked your headshot session with me and might be wondering how do I prepare?
First step, select 1 - 2 outfits that you would consider wearing to a job interview.
Lean more on the formal side and think about the outfit details from head to toe (cuff-links, dress shoes, etc).
A collared shirt with a jacket is a great polished look.
Add a tie if you want it to be more formal and can be removed for other photos as well.
Black, charcoal, navy, and white are timeless.
To stand out a bit, add a pop of colour with a pocket square or tie.
Key is to keep your outfit classic and timeless
Stick to neutrals and keep patterns subtle
You could start with jeans & a blazer, neutral blouses with black pants, fun heels or boots.
In terms of colours, keep to neutrals (white, grey, black)
Keep in mind many of my clients bring multiple outfits if you want to change up your look.
Key is to feel comfortable in your outfits and best to try on before to make sure you feel good.
What you show through your eyes is more powerful than any item of clothing you could ever wear.
