Bring at least a dozen different tops; when in doubt, throw it in the car! But you should be able to carry all your clothes in one trip...shoes aren't very important.
Avoid loud patterns and logos
No suntans - avoid the sun!! It makes your skin look dry and shiny.
Bring a variety of necklines: collars, v-neck, scoop neck, round neck...
Business suits and business casual are a great idea for men and women
Think about your type and what roles you could play
Pay attention to what people are wearing on television to get ideas for clothing
If you have red veins in eyes bring Visine or eye drops to clear them up before the shoot
Men-please spend extra time grooming before you come in. Be sure to trim nose hairs, ear hairs, eyebrows, facial hair...
If you see a headshot you like or have an old favorite one bring it with you. We are in a visual business and we'll be able to communicate better.
Women and Young Ladies
WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND OUR HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST! If you absolutely know how to do your own, that's great, but makeup is a vital part of a great headshot and it must be done well. My makeup and hair artist is supremely talented, on time, and stays throughout the session and she is friendly and easy to work with. She also does consultations freelance. You may contact her at [email protected], or call Jennifer Lynne at 215-983-9169
You may come in unshaven and shave after we do some photos (if that look suits you)
Haircuts should be done about a week in advance, give yourself some time to get comfortable with a new haircut (some hairstyles need to be freshly cut)
Grooming is available for men
Kids should look like kids!
Clothing should be age appropriate
Keep hairstyles simple
