Headshot Photo what to wear


Thank you for booking your headshot with me! Tips on Preparing For Your photo session.

  • Men should have had a recent haircut and have shaven within a few hours of the shoot. Women tend to want and shoot right after having their hair done, which is fine if you can arrange it.
  • Long sleeves are the best choice for adults, I do not recommend short-sleeved shirts. If this is a business photograph then I encourage you to wear a dark-colored blazer.
  • Women should wear long skirts, pants, or dark stockings with shorter skirts or dresses. This helps lessen the distraction and keep the viewer’s attention on the face.
  • If feet are to be shown in the photograph, be sure your socks and shoes are in good order, as well as polished.
  • Stay away from collars that are two spread out, or very wide V Necks. The same for heavy or bulky sweaters that hug your neckline.
  • Don’t wear bright colors, such as red and orange, they don’t mix well and degrade the portrait.
  • Another tip, don’t wear bold stripes, plaids, checks, or prints they do not photograph well.
  • One other tip, bare shoulders or tops such as “spaghetti straps” don’t work well in photographs. Unless the theme requires it.
