Unlock Your Best Self: Your Headshot Session Guide

Capture your professional essence and make a lasting impression with your next headshot session! But before the camera clicks, let's prepare for a smooth and successful experience.

Prepping for Your Close-Up:

Know Your Goals:

  • What message do you want to convey? Executive polish? Creative flair? Explore my portfolio to find styles that resonate with you.

Dress for Success:

  • Industry Standard with a Twist: Think "appropriate for your field" while showcasing your personality. Bring options for flexibility.

  • Simplify Your Look: Solid colors are generally best. Avoid distracting patterns, brands, and text.

  • Layer Up for Success: Long sleeves and dark colors tend to be slimming, while red can add boldness.

  • Accessorize Wisely: Keep jewelry minimal or skip it entirely for a more professional look.

  • Bring Backups: Aim for at least two different, appropriate outfits. Actors, bring extras reflecting desired roles.

  • Wrinkle-Free is Key: Iron beforehand and keep clothes on hangers to avoid wrinkles.

Makeup and Hair:

  • Natural Beauty: Keep makeup light or opt for professional application. Men, embrace your natural look.

  • Hair Harmony: Get a fresh cut and style shortly before your session. Bring a brush and hairspray for touch-ups.

  • Rest and Recharge: A good night's sleep and healthy meal do wonders for your skin and energy.

Lights, Camera, Collaboration!

  • Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Trust my expertise! I'll guide you through flattering poses that achieve your goals.

  • Authentic Smiles: Ditch the fake grin and let your natural personality shine through. Genuine smiles will follow.

  • Music to Your Ears: Choose your favorite tunes from our online radio or bring your own playlist to relax.

  • Embrace the Fun: Enjoy the process and let your confidence radiate.

Post-Session Polish:

  • Review and Refine: We'll review your images together, addressing any concerns. I can edit minor blemishes and enhance your natural beauty, but authenticity is key.

  • Stay True to Yourself: Remember, casting directors seek genuine representation for actors and models.

  • Patience is a Virtue: Allow 2 business days for basic edits. Discuss urgent needs at booking.

  • Digital Delivery: Receive your high-resolution photos via email or gallery, ready to conquer the world.
