Headshot tips . . .

  • Keep makeup looking natural, in colors you would normally wear when going out to dinner or a job interview. This is not the time to experiment;
  • Keep colors simple. Solid colors work best. Lipstick should be complimentary not overpowering. If wearing black or white it is best to add a tiny bit of color. Not everyone looks good in black or white;
  • Do you prefer to be photographed on one side versus the other? Let Michelle know when you begin;
  • If you always wear glasses, wear them for your photo;
  • Do not obsess about the photo. A relaxed natural expression looks best;
  • Wear something that makes you feel great!
