Professional Headshot Photography That You’ll Actually Love

Signature Headshot Experience

Are you tired of not liking your current headshot and dreading the idea of taking another one? You’re not alone. Many professionals feel the same way, especially if their previous experience was rushed or DIY. If you’re in need of a new headshot, whether it’s because of a promotion, business milestone, or a new business venture, there is a better way to capture a headshot that you’ll actually love and feel like you.


It all starts with our initial conversation, where we’ll get to know each other and discuss what makes you unique. This connection is vital for a successful headshot session because it allows me to plan the perfect session for you. As a business owner or professional, it’s important for me to understand what you do and why you do it, and who you do it for.

Wardrobe Guidance

Choosing the right outfit for a headshot session can be daunting. That’s why I offer wardrobe guidance to help you select the best outfits for your session. I can assist you with online shopping and send over links of ideas, or even go through your closet to help you select what works best.

Hair and Makeup (highly recommended)

this is a time to relax knowing you’re in good hands, our makeup artists are some of the best and know exactly what’s needed to be camera ready. This isn’t the time to experiment with a new hairstyle or makeup trend. Instead, the makeup artist will give you a classic, natural look that will make you feel pampered, relaxed, and confident walking into your session.

Fully guided session

Don’t worry about feeling awkward or unphotogenic, its my job to set you at ease and direct you into the most flattering poses (even the non-posed, posed looks 🙂

Fun and Stress-Free Headshot Session

We’ll have a plan going into the session to ensure that we capture the images you need, but it usually ends up being a lot of fun. We’ll work together to capture your personal brand through photography. You can trust me to keep the session light and stress-free while making sure you’re posed to look your best and smile with a natural smile.

Here are some ideas to keep in mind:

  1. Show off your personality: You want to be seen as genuine and authentic in your photos, so make sure your outfit reflects your personality. Don’t try to fit a mold or wear something that doesn’t feel like you. If you’re casual, go for professional casuals like a solid button-down shirt or blouse with three-quarter or long sleeves. If you want to convey a fun and bright image, try wearing colorful accessories like a bow tie, jewelry, scarves, or bright shoes.
  2. Match your brand: Your outfit should complement your brand’s message and style. Think about your brand colors and pick something that matches or complements them. If your brand is modern, go for a modern outfit. If it’s classic or eccentric, match that style.
  3. Avoid patterns and thin pinstripes: Patterns can be distracting and make you look wider, while thin pinstripes can contribute to pixel distortion and make photo editing harder. Stick to solid colors, which are easier on the eyes and make photo manipulations easier.
  4. Make it fit: Loose clothing can make you look wider in photos, so opt for fitted clothes to look leaner and taller. A nice slim fit that allows you to breathe is perfect.
  5. Wear what you love: If you feel comfortable and confident in your outfit, it will translate on camera. Genuine expressions beat a well-put-together outfit any day.
  6. Bright colors are fun: Bright colors are bold and different and can add some personality to your photos. White can also work well if you’re properly lit.
  7. Rich, dark colors smooth out your figure: Dark colors can help hide little rolls and add depth to your outfit. Go for rich dark tones instead of flat tones without texture.
  8. Choose the right necklines: If you have a short neck, go for deeper necklines to make it appear longer. V-shaped necklines and scoop necks look good on everyone. If you have a long neck, a high neckline like a turtleneck, crew neck, or boat-neck is best. A v-neck can make you appear less boxy and add height, complementing rounder or wider faces.
  9. Use accessories: Accessories can make a statement and help you stand out. Try adding a bright pair of heels to a neutral outfit, or wearing hats, scarves, belts, bow ties, suspenders, or dainty jewelry pieces to showcase your personality and enhance your look.
  10. Bring variety: Bring a variety of outfits to your photo session to ensure you have options to choose from. This will help keep your content fresh and allow you to use different images for different purposes.
By keeping these tips in mind, you’ll be able to put together outfits that showcase your personality and help you look your best in headshots and branding images.
