Headshot Style Guide
For a quality headshot photo session, it’s important that you be yourself. The more relaxed you are, the better the session will likely be.
Bring your best outfit to the shoot. Dress nice but not too extravagant. Dark and light clothing each have their benefits. Whereas dark clothes avoid being too distracting and have a classic appeal, bright color clothes stand out and appear more fun and carefree.
Wearing longer sleeves will prevent your arms from looking too large. As your neckline will be visible, consider wearing something visually pleasing.
Accessories help to convey your personality and unique style.
Choose patterns and stripes carefully. While some patterns can appear too busy, others add a great sense of fun and style.
When applying your own make-up, add a little bit more on your lips and eyes. You may want to use matte foundations and powders rather than shimmer and metallics.
If you would like to wear jewelry in your headshots, be sure to bring some different necklace and earring choices.
If you are planning on getting a haircut, we suggest waiting at least a week before your photoshoot.
Letting us know where you plan to display these headshots allows us to capture the right mood.
If you have facial hair, trim it so that it looks tidy. For those wanting a clean-shaven look, we recommend a thorough shave prior to your session.
Our portfolio is broad and varied. We’ve worked with every type of headshot client, from a single person startup to a company that needs to get dozens of employee headshots taken in as short a window as possible.
Whether you’re looking for professional headshots that will make a visual statement about your brand or for an expert photography team to capture headshots for your entire staff, we’re here. We can collaborate with you on conceptual photography or work flexibly to ensure each person gets a quickly captured, flattering image for your staff bio page.
