Member Photo Package Portrait - Standard
****PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING****
Hello, We are looking forward to working with you during your photo shoot! Below you will find a few tips that should help you to come prepared and looking good for your session
● Clothing: Think about what you are going to wear. Solid, neutral colors and subtle prints.
● Hair: Whatever looks good on you and reflects your current style.
● Make-Up: keep your makeup natural and not overly-done. Don’t forget to bring your make-up, hair spray, brush, for touch-ups.
● Glasses: If you normally wear glasses, also wear them in your photographs.
● Jewelry: Keep jewelry to a minimum. Drop earrings, and bangle bracelets should be avoided.
● Visit the mirror just before you have your photo taken
WHAT TO AVOID FOR HEADSHOTS
• Busy patterns can be distracting in the photo when the focus should be on you.
• Overly bright colors. Men, leave the salmon and yellow ties at home. Women, leave the bright uber saturated blouses in the closet. Those overly bright and very saturated colors can do two things in photos. The can completely wash out and suddenly your yellow tie will become a very distracting highlight on the image or the overly saturated bright colors will keep all of their color and also become distracting drawing attention to what you are wearing rather than you.
• Men – Know what tie works for the shirt you plan on wearing. Beyond color, make sure you wear the proper shirt for the type of tie you are wearing. If you are wearing a wide collared shirt, make sure to have a nice wide tie as well. A skinny tie will never get wide enough to fill the gap and seeing the collar of the tie looks a bit sloppy.
• Women – Keep the jewelry simple. More often than not this portrait of used will be cropped pretty tight, in the crop, the statement necklace you are wearing will be cut off almost completely and just be left with a couple of distracting bright lines going down from your neck.
• Skip the seasonal clothes. Your might be having your headshot done in January, but when your headshot pops up for a business conference taking place in July you may seem a bit out of place. Women, you are usually in the clear on this one, just mind the scarf you are wearing(if you wear scarves.) Men – Seasonal ties should be passed over for this occasion. Save the snowman tie to give the first year associate as a gift, after all they were the only one in the office on that snowy day in February.
• Blue shirts with white collars. Unless you are the Wolf of Wall Street, leave the white/blue color combo in the closet on headshot day.
• If your favorite shirt happens to have grown to be a size too big for you, pick up a shirt with a nice fitted look. It is especially noticeable around the collar when there is plenty of extra space for shadows(or even bright spots) to pop in.
• Avoid short sleeves. This again goes back to how the headshot will end up cropped, for a lot of uses, it will be cropped just a little lower than the shoulders. If you are wearing short sleeves, the tops of your arms may creep in and stand out more than anyone cares for. Long serves are a must and even better, step your game up and grab a blazer for the occasion
