What To Expect For Your Headshot Session

When preparing for your headshot session, here are some things to keep in mind:

Most importantly, this session is all about you and your needs. The session will be as long or as short as you need to be satisfied with your experience. Although, the majority of sessions are under thirty minutes. You have the option to come to our studio or we can meet you on location for an additional fee.

We recommend getting to the studio ten to fifteen minutes early in case you need to change into your outfit, touch up your make-up, fix your hair, or anything else to make yourself camera ready. We have a changing area and mirrors for your convenience. If you bring multiple outfits, you’ll be able to comfortably change here.

We recommend bringing more than one outfit so you have more options to choose from. Neutrals and darker tones look best and most professional. Steer away from distracting patterns, heavy make-up, and gaudy jewelry.

We will start the session by taking some shots in each of your outfits. Then we will upload them to the computer right then and there, and take a look. You’ll be able to hand pick your favorite photo to be retouched. You also have the option of purchasing additional images – sometimes one just isn’t enough!

Our studio has a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Your only job is to sit up straight and smile! We’ll take care of the rest.

Recently, Eileen Harryvan hopped into the studio for a headshot photography shoot with us! Eileen works for Active Regeneration, as an independent BEMER distributor. Eileen came to the shoot prepared with different outfits to try out. This is always a good idea, as it gives you more looks to choose from. As you can see below, she simply threw on a blazer and it changed her look dramatically, giving her strong, respectable, and professional presence. The outfit really does matter in your headshot!
