Preparing for a headshot photography Dallas session can be exciting, scary, and slightly overwhelming all at the same time. There are many factors that people should keep in mind when preparing to get your headshot photographs taken.

 

Here are helpful tips that will guide you in getting ready for your first-ever headshot photography session:

 

1-Share your expectations with the headshot photographer

 

Although headshot photography sessions are usually brief, you still need to prepare beforehand to ensure that you and your chosen headshot photographer are on the same page. Share as much information as you can on how you want your headshots to look. The photographer will also provide some suggestions on how your goal can be executed effectively. Sharing your expectations on the overall look and feel will help photographers create a plan on how they can direct you during the actual photography session.

 

2-Choose your clothing and accessories accordingly

 

Select the appropriate outfit and accessories to wear for your headshot session. Make sure to choose from two to three outfits, so you can consult with your headshot photographer which outfit will look best and help you achieve your intended overall look and feel.

 

3-Prepare your skin a few days before your scheduled headshot session

 

So, how do you prepare your skin to look healthy and glowing for your headshot session, you ask? Simple! Start drinking plenty of water a week before your headshot photography session to ensure that your skin looks clear, plump, and smooth.

 

Eat healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables, so you can be glowing from within. Avoid food items that are fried or are too salty to avoid looking bloated in your headshot photos.

 

Lastly, avoid sun exposure, as too many UV rays can make your skin look dry and tired. Get lots of sleep to reduce the appearance of dark circles under your eyes.

 

4-Pick a hairstyle or haircut a few weeks prior to your scheduled headshot photoshoot

 

If you want to look at your best in your headshots, we recommend that you choose a hairstyle that beautifully frames your face and exudes a professional but relaxed look. Look for a hairstyle that you can easily recreate for interviews, auditions, and presentations.

 

5-Prepare your facial hairs a few days before your photoshoot

 

Listen, you don’t need to completely shave your facial hair for a headshot session, but it is important to groom them nicely. If you pluck or shave on the day of your headshot photoshoot, chances are your photos will display red marks and irritated skin. A large number of people experience red marks, itching, and irritation when they pluck, shave or cut their facial hairs on the day of their photoshoot. In short, this is a bad idea, if you want to look professional and clean to your target audience.

 

6-Breathe and relax

 

This may seem easy for some, but this will be challenging to accomplish during the actual headshot photoshoot. Make sure that you feel relaxed and stay in that mood throughout the entire session. If you fail to relax, this will be conveyed in the photo through your facial expression and body language.

 

Nervousness and anxiety will diminish the overall quality of your look. Practice good posture before the photo shoot and don’t forget to listen carefully to your headshot photographer’s direction.
