What to wear at a headshot session
What should you wear for a headshot session?
Let’s keep it simple:
Consider what your background will look like. If it will be dark, maybe wear something lighter to stand out or vice versa. If we will have a green background, perhaps don’t wear green!
Be careful with black. Sure, it might be slimming in real life, but in photographs, it can make you look like a big black blob if not worn correctly. A black jacket over a different colored top can be ok. Pet hair and lint also show up great on black so bring a lint roller if you're going to try it!
Avoid bold patterns. I recommend solid colors or muted patterns that won’t distract from your face. The photograph should be about YOU, not your clothing.
Let’s try one with a jacket and then one with just a shirt or sweater so we can see which feel you like better.
Use jewelry to accent your outfit or bring in a pop of color.
Avoid scoop necks or asymmetrical necklines.
If you want to have some full-body shots to choose from, please consider your pants and footwear.
I am always happy to help you select your wardrobe. As you start to plan, feel free to email or text me photos of what you are thinking and I will kindly give my input!
