Looking Picture Perfect: Headshots

January 06, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

If you opt for a Simple Session instead of a full Signature Portrait Session, you’ll be doing your own hair and makeup. We want you to look like your professional best, so here are three tips.

  1. Clean and polished makeup is the best look for this type of session. Save any dramatic choices for your lashes (they’ll show up better) rather than your lipstick (choose a softer color to give you a finished look that doesn’t distract) or heavy eyeshadow (stick to something lighter that complements your eyes).
  2. Clean and polished hair can be achieved with a professional blowout, or you can do this at home, too. Light hairspray will help keep fly-aways in their place.
  3. Neutral clothing helps keep the focus where it should be: on your face! Avoid patterns (and other people’s logos) and opt for solid colors that enhance your eye color.
