How to Prepare for Your Headshot Session

Here are a few things to keep in mind when preparing for your upcoming headshot session.  These preparation steps are necessary and will ensure a smooth and successful session.

  1. Plan your wardrobe.  Start with what you normally wear to work.  Or if you’re hoping for the next step up in your career, dress for that next position.  “Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.”
  2. Bring multiple wardrobe options.  Please bring several options for wardrobe to your headshot session.  Perhaps a more formal look and a casual look.  Bring a solid dark jacket (black, grey, navy) and then also bring something with more color (solid blue or red, for example).
  3. Plan for hair and makeup.  Whether you do your own or my HMU artist does the hair and makeup, plan accordingly.  Start with what you wear on a daily basis and then add a touch more (especially lip color, cheek color, and powder for shine).
  4. Think about pose and expression.  It’s important to know what type of “look” you’d like to achieve with your headshot.  Depending on your occupation, you may want to appear confident and strong or friendly and outgoing.  Just think about that and have the conversation with your photographer.

Headshots for JoEllen, Sage Business Coaching and Consulting

JoEllen needed an updated headshot for her business website.  As an executive coach, JoEllen wanted to have a certain look for her headshots.  Since she works with many businesses and specifically C-level executives, she wanted to appear confident and competent.  Through pose and expression, we were able to give her that look.
