What should I wear to my head shot session and how should I prepare for it?
We recommend wearing what you would normally wear to work but make sure that it's the best version of that, so make sure your clothes are freshly laundered and ironed, remove any pet hair with a clothes brush. Jackets always look more professional than bare arms (particularly for corporate). If you need to update an outfit than sure go ahead, there is nothing quite like a new outfit to make you feel more confident. Dress to impress the clients that you want to attract to your business. Feel comfortable to bring a second option of jacket, tie or top if you are not sure or want a second look for your images.
Can you retouch hair?
if your hair needs to be cut or coloured then we recommend that you visit your the hairdresser you will get far better results than trying to retouch hair
For men, if you shave; then a clean shaven will look better than a look of forgotten to shave, if you have a beard just then make sure it's tidy and trimmed.
What other things do need to consider before my session?
A couple of things to avoid if possible for your session - busy patterns or patterns that may cause a strobe effect in the image such as small check patterns.
Once you have decided on your background options then avoid wearing a colour top that will blend. For example, white on white will look bland and black on black has a disappearing effect, ideally you want to stand out from the background so that your image and brand stands out
Check your finger nails, if you are wearing polish than make sure its a fresh colour with no chipping or make sure to remove it completely
Make up and jewellery, best advice I can give here is don't overdo it, keep it simple.
I am also happy to answer any other questions you may have about your session.
