10 fashion tips for a successful headshot session in San Francisco


We’ll help you select the best options for your professional headshots session. If you are coming in for a corporate headshot session, we encourage you to wear a look that includes layers. For instance, a cardigan or a jacket with silk scar, or jacket and a tie. This way we can photograph the combinations and have options to select from. Remember even switching small piece of jewelry can make big impact on the final look of an outfit.

Choose outfits that are classic and won’t become outdated.

Wear a color that is contrasting and flattering to your skin tone.

Choose darker or mid-tone colors because they tend to put more emphasis on your face and eyes.

Avoid bold plaids, and patterns like floral prints, checkers, polka dots, and stripes.

These patterns can detract from your face and make the photo too busy.

Choose jewelry to enhance and fine tune your outfit. Jewelry adds a complementary accent to your outfit, and draws attention to your face.

If jewelry is not worn, your photo may look unfinished, plain and boring. The size of your earrings should be no less than the pupil of your eye. They should not be too bold, flash, or distract from your face.

Choose outfits with modest necklines and sleeves. Too much skin can detract from your desired professional look.

Choose a hair style that is flattering but natural. Makeup should be moderately applied. Make sure clothes are wrinkle free and fit properly.
