HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR HEADSHOT SESSION

This post will help prep for your upcoming headshot session and outline expectations from start to finish. The goal with your business headshot is a blend of professionalism and approachability. I aim to highlight your natural beauty and help document your best YOU. 

RECOMMENDED DO’S

  • Keep it simple! Lend towards the professional outfits and colors you generally wear. Black is always a classic and any other solid colors that look good on you. Solid and darker colors tend to be slimming.
  • Take into consideration that fitted and smaller clothing shows up better than looser clothing.
  • Do make sure your clothing are cleaned and pressed.
  • It’s Colorado! Layers are not only functional, but look great in your headshot. Bring your jackets, sweaters, jewelry/etc to layer during your shoot.
  • If you choose to wear makeup, lend towards a little heavier than usually for the camera and lipstick if you wear it. If you need a local professional makeup recommendation, please ask me.
  • Everyone should prep their lips with chapstick or lip balm.
  • If you are known for glasses, please wear them. There are some tricks if they glare with flash.
  • Do know that light retouching will be provided for your final selections. That includes naturally altering fly aways, skin blemishes/softening, and dark under eyes. Please communicate anything else that’s on your mind.
  • Stay hydrated and sleep well the night before.

SUGGESTED DON’TS

  • When choosing an outfit, avoid busy/loud prints, logos, or words as they can be distracting. 
  • Don’t forget about your fingernails, hair ties and watches on your wrists. They may make an appearance with an arms crossed pose.
  • Don’t worry about your pants or shoes. Unless otherwise specified, your headshot will be shot waist up.
  • Don’t be afraid to communicate any thoughts or concerns at any point during your headshot process. Your opinion and happiness matter.
  • Don’t forget to relax and have fun!

WHAT TO EXPECT BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER YOUR SESSION

  • You’ve decided we are a good fit for your headshot session! Please contact to book your session or email info@noellewilliamsphotography.com. Then we can further discuss your headshot needs and find an available date and time.
  • For a studio headshot session, budget around 10-30 minutes of time behind the camera. You are welcome to one look or bring a change of clothing for variety in your session. We will also have time to review your images during the session. You will leave knowing we got the shot!
  • A standard studio session is $250 that includes time and 5 digital images (retouched) of choice afterwards. Additional images can be purchased separately for $30 per image.
  • Turn around time for your proofing gallery is fairly quick. And then anticipate up to one week at the latest for final delivery after your selections have been made.
