Preparing for your session

What to wear

Classic styles never go out of fashion. Dress shirts or collared jerseys for men, slacks and blouses or a simple dress for women. Solid colors if possible, otherwise avoid loud, bold and distracting patterns or prints. Nothing will age a photo faster than the latest trend in clothing. (Remember your high school photo?)

Props are good, welcomed actually. Hats, jackets, scarves and other clothing accessories can add texture. Sporting equipment, tools of the trade, instruments, etc., can also add to the personality of a portrait.

If  you are going for a clean, professional headshot please remove all jewelry (necklaces, bracelets, earrings and any visible facial piercings). Unless you wear your glasses more than 90% of the time it is suggested you remove them for the photos.

Last of all, wear comfortable shoes and get plenty of sleep the night before.


Hair and Makeup

If possible use the services of a professional hair and makeup stylist. They will get you looking your best in no time.

Discounting that, freshly clean hair and face goes a long way for a great photo session. As I mentioned in the previous section, a good sleep the night before will help avoid dark circles under the eyes.

The nice thing about a photo is that minor blemishes are easy to get rid of, so don't worry about that pimple that may have popped up. Harder to get rid of are red blotches from trying to pop it before hand.

If you wear makeup, bring your travel kit with you in case you need touch ups. Also don't forget to bring a comb and brush. If you have long hair make sure you have a hair tie or two, and don't forget your hair product (spray or gel) just in case.
