How to prepare for your headshot session

For a successful professional headshots session, be yourself and feel comfortable.

Hair and makeup, the clothes you wear and your attitude have a great impact on the outcome of your headshots photos. From a casual look to a business look, the secret is to know your style and dress with confidence. 


For best results, work with a professional makeup and hair stylist.

If you do your own hair and makeup, aim for a natural makeup look that makes you look like the best version of yourself.

Don't use mineral makeup products with SPF, silica, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. They can create foundation flashback which is a very unattractive glow and shine on the skin. 


Get a haircut a couple of days before your headshot photography session. I you need, we give you a translucent face powder to reduce shine and help reduce skin imperfections.

What to wear for your headshots

What to wear for a headshot session? Pick a color palette that suits your skin tone as well as your brand. Bring more outfits that you think you need so you can have options to choose from. We don’t know how an outfit looks on camera until we photograph it. Having multiples ensures we have options to work with.
