How can I prepare for a headshot?

Simply put, be prepared to look your best. Generally this means making sure your hair and skin are in good shape. It's probably not a good idea to make any radical changes to your normal hygiene regimen just before the shoot, as new skin cleansing and hair care products could bring about unexpected results.

Please bring your own makeup and hair brushes so touch-ups can be done during the session. You are more than welcome to invite a skilled friend who can help you in this area. If you're really not experienced with hair and makeup,  it can be beneficial to hire a professional makeup artist or hair stylist. Please inquire about this service.

Keep clothing simple. Mid tone colors work best. Avoid all-white which can tend to wash out. Avoid busy patterns that can distract from your face. Since the headshot will primarily focus on the face and upper body, try to pick something that falls well on your shoulders and flatters your neckline.

Get plenty of sleep the night before, eat healthy and light the day of the shoot to avoid feeling bloated or hungry. These will all help you to look your best.

Bring your favorite bottled water! You need plenty of water to look at your best during the shoot.
