Tips for a Polished Headshot

If it’s been more than two years since your last headshot, it’s probably time for an update.  Or if you have lost weight or changed your hair substantially, it’s also time for a new headshot.  Before your next headshot session, consider a few of these tips for a polished headshot!

  1. Hair and makeup services for women and men: the hair and makeup service ensures that makeup is appropriate for the studio lighting which can take away some of your color.  For men, it helps with any shine on the skin.  My HMU artists know how to give you a business professional look!
  2. Wardrobe: be sure that wardrobe fits properly.  It will be evident in your headshot if your shirt or jacket is too big or too small.  If you need to purchase new pieces before your headshot, please do so.  Also, be sure that your wardrobe is clean and pressed – yes, I will see all of the white dog hairs on your black jacket (I have a lint roller with me at all times too)!
  3. Hire a Professional Photographer: that selfie looks like a selfie!  A professional headshot, even when taken outdoors, has proper lighting, posing, and expression to make you stand out from the selfie crowd.  Don’t risk your career to the selfie.

Just a little preparation goes a long way towards a successful and fantastic new headshot!  Talk to your photographer before your session so that you’ve hit all of the check-points for a polished headshot.

Headshot Examples

Here are a few recent headshot sessions at Tara Flannery Photography.  Studio sessions with the grey background are a popular choice!  Outdoor sessions also offer a professional look but with a little more casual vibe.  Depending on your role and industry, we can provide a headshot that suits your brand and style.
