Headshots are supposed to convey that you are a confident and polished professional so take the time to choose clothes that convey that message. Here are a few more tips for you to prepare for your photoshoot.
Take at least one of dark and one set of light color outfits, so we can experiment with a dark or a bright background. I usually do a black, white or grey background for corporate headshots.
Don’t wear anything too trendy and avoid any pattern. It’s best to choose something with a fall or winter look rather than a summer style.
Make sure all the outfits are nicely pressed, lint & wrinkle-free. And be sure to transport them in a garment bag instead of folded up in a suitcase.
Solid colour clothes are less distracting and put the focus on your face and eyes.
Be sure to bring along the correct undergarment to go with your outfits.
Best is to bring seamless (not lace) nude colour bra. That goes well under anything.
Bring along your favourite lipstick and some earrings or necklaces.
If you wear glasses sometimes, remember to bring them along.
The most important wardrobe tip I have to offer is to wear something that you like.
Something that makes you feel good. The confidence that comes from knowing that you look good along with a warm smile will result in an image that you love and will help you achieve your marketing goals.
