MORE TIPS TO PREPARE FOR YOUR HEADSHOT SESSION:
Think of this as you would preparing for an interview…
Stay hydrated and get plenty of rest in the days leading up to your session. This will help keep your skin clear and eyes bright! Don’t stress if you wake up with blemishes the day of your session (and don’t mess with them as it will generally make them worse -- let photoshop do the magic there!)
Light Exercise (even a quick walk) before your session can add a healthy glow to your skin.
Eyebrows / Nails / Facial Hair: clean up / trim / etc. as necessary.
Hair: Bring a brush/comb and any products necessary to control static/flyaways (or to keep in place if there’s a light breeze). Please DO NOT try out a brand new haircut/style the week before your session (take it from clients who have learned this lesson the hard way)!
Makeup: generally a touch more mascara/lip color and contouring is advisable for photos, and be sure to refresh right before our session (even if you don't normally wear makeup, mascara and lip tint is great to highlight your features but still look natural).
Men: a bit of lip balm or chapstick can be your best friend to avoid cracked lips (it’s Colorado)!
BE ON TIME: Please familiarize yourself with directions to our meeting place and leave yourself time to negotiate traffic and parking. Session times are chosen around flattering light. Nothing worse than arriving frazzled, except arriving late when light is changing (AND there might be a session scheduled after yours).
When you first arrive, we’ll chat about your wardrobe for a few minutes, and then you’ll have time to relax into the session.
Trust that you’ve hired a photographer who has experience and will be able to direct you into your most flattering poses (this is critically important since you can’t see yourself, after all!)
Ideally, even if you’re nervous or don’t like being in front of a camera, you’ll be surprised and have a great experience while we produce fantastic headshots to help you land your next dream job, client or audience with confidence.
