5 Tips To Help You Prepare & Get The Most Out Of Your Headshot Session

When it comes to your professional headshot session the majority of your results rely on the photographer; but there are a few things you can do to prepare & get the most out of your headshot session. Here are 5 tips for you to consider when preparing for your headshots:

  1. Avoid spending too much time in the sun (at least 3 days before your session)- to help reduce redness that occurs from spending too much time in the sun we suggest avoiding sun exposure for extended periods of time & if you must be in the sun prior to your session USE SUNSCREEN!

  2. Iron your wardrobe- there is only one way to eliminate wrinkled clothing in photos & that is ironing. Coming with your wardrobe options ironed (or pressed) & hanging on hangers will help to ensure wrinkles in your clothing are limited & you look the most put-together.

  3. Use a lint roller- You may not notice every hair, flake, or fuzzball, but our cameras sure will. Using a lint roller on your jacket or dark colored top will help to make turnaround time faster. Don’t have one with you? no worries, we always have some available to use here in our studio.

  4. Hire professional Hair & Makeup services- Ladies, there is nothing more frustrating than getting your photos back & realizing you hate the way your hair &/or makeup looked on camera. Hiring a professional hair & makeup artist to doll you up before your session can help you avoid this frustration. Not sure where to go or who to ask?, we have a few stylists available for an additional fee with advance notice. Simply inquire at your time of booking.

  5. Loosen up & Relax- OK, we know these are for professional use, but please trust us when we say “just loosen up & relax”. Your headshots will come out 10x better when you are yourself. You can tell a fake smile from a mile away, real smiles always look best. Think of something that makes you smile or laugh when the camera points your way & let your face brighten up. Real smiles help to say “I’m professional, yet approachable.”

Millie's becoming a star...

A few weeks ago we were approached by an Orlando mom who’s 8 year old daughter has BIG ambitions. Little Millie wants to become an actress! Millie has been given the opportunity to audition in Las Vegas but before she can do that she needs professional headshots & acting portraits.

Our branding sessions work for all kinds of professionals, and actors are no exception. Our Gold package was the perfect fit for what Millie needed to get her foot in the door.

Millie’s day started with professional hairstyling & yes, even makeup…

Once Millie was looking “camera ready” we started with some studio headshots & portraits. Millie was a natural in front of the camera.

With Millie’s studio shots done, we then went outdoors to get her some Cinematic headshots to fit in with the pros and some outdoor portraits to show off that shining personality.

Good luck in Las Vegas Millie! You’re already a star in our eyes!

Headshots for AdRizer

We recently did the first round of staff headshots for Sarasota based company AdRizer. When we first arrived at their new location located inside the BOTA building in the rosemary district we were amazed at how cool their space was!
