THE PERFECT HEADSHOT
A typical studio headshot session takes about two hours depending on wardrobe changes and if professional hair and makeup are elected.
Once in the studio, lighting is tailored and adjusted to complement each person uniquely.
It's important to allow plenty of time in your schedule to not feel rushed during your shoot.
In a session it is common for hundreds of photos to be taken with the intent of nailing at least three photos to be fully edited and professionally retouched. These photos will be duplicated with crop and or color variations
Hair and Makeup
Decide beforehand if you would like professional hair and makeup for your session. The cost is $100 for each, individually, and will be brought in for you.
Either way, be sure to bring anything with you to touch up or improve your grooming throughout the shoot, especially if you'll be changing clothes, e.g. hair products, brush, comb, makeup, and powder (important for men as well as women).
Keep it simple. Bring in 3-4 pre-selected outfits for the looks that you want to convey, that you feel good in.
Primary colors make an outfit pop, while black, white and light blue photograph well with most skin tones and various background colors. Solid colors avoid disorienting moire affects in the camera.
Consider matching accent items to your eye color
Flowing material, or layering shirts or jackets adds to the depth of the image
Accessories (earnings, necklaces, etc.) should be kept them in the same color or in complementary colors with each other
