FLAVOR, STYLE, FASHION, VOGUE
There are many styles to consider: casual, distinguished, meditative, outgoing, pensive, chic, jovial, reserved, enigmatic, mellow, classy, artsy, demure, expressive, animated, cool, effervescent, elegant, heroic, nonchalant, outgoing, and more. Style can also be influenced by the personality and character of the person, as well as the purpose of the portrait.
If your company has guidelines, send them to me ahead of time and we’ll match your photo to them. If there are none, you may want to look at what your colleagues are doing and what’s appropriate for your position and purpose.
Are you due for a visit to the hair salon before your portrait? Tell me if you have particular likes or dislikes from previous photos; they can help steer us in the right direction.
MAKEUP, HAIR, STYLING
You are welcome to bring your own hair and makeup people to do their work at the studio before the shoot. Optionally, I also recommend a particular salon owner who comes to my studio and does outstanding makeup and ‘lite’ hair arranging. If interested, ask me about her.
OUTFIT & ACCESSORIES
When thinking about your outfit, consider how your photo will be used and how you want to be perceived. If you have a favorite outfit you think you look really good in, then wear it. If you think you look good, you will look good.
You’re welcome to bring 2-3 different tops for the basic headshot and we can decide once here which looks the best.
