Clothing Suggestions​

 

BRING EXTRA OUTFITS  If you're unsure of your outfit choices, bring a few choices and their accessories, we are happy to give you our professional opinion.

 

Even if you're only coming in for a headshot, wear appropriate and matching pants or skirts, as there are shots which will include the waist.

 

Men

A suit coat, sports jacket or sweater over shirt & pants looks good with or without a tie. Long sleeves look more professional, while short sleeves convey a more relaxed feel.

A plain shirt is a little formal so for a more casual look, wear a colored or patterned shirt.  Better yet, bring both.

 

This is where your expertise comes in to play: ask yourself "Who are my clients?". Dark denim can be a modern alternative to dress pants; paired with a sport coat, it creates a contemporary silhouette. 

 

Women

Layering creates a dynamic look. Layer jackets & sweaters over blouses and tops with dresses & pants or skirts. Long sleeves are best so your upper arm doesn't compete with your face for attention.

If you're not sure, bring 2 or 3 outfits we'll look at them together.

WEAR MORE makeup

 

THE CAMERA TAKES OFF 50 % OF YOUR MAKEUP - so be sure to wear more matte foundation, blush and lipstick.  Wear more make up than usual. Bring some with you just in case you need a touch up.
