My number one piece of advice for preparing for your corporate headshot is to try not to stress about it. I appreciate that some people get very anxious at the thought of standing in front of a camera; for others, it’s not a big deal. The phrase I hear the most when people arrive for their session is “I hate having my picture taken”. I totally understand that feeling. However, all that anxiety and stress will get in the way of achieving a great shot. Lucky, with me, you’ll be in good hands. Please, let me know if you’re feeling particularly stressed; I’ll quickly put you at ease.
Other general advice is to make sure you’re well-hydrated in the days leading up to your session and on the day of your headshot. Additionally, make sure to get plenty of sleep the night before your photo so you’re rested and ready to go.
I will provide direction for posing, and we’ll try a variety of options and angles. However, the basic tips to remember are to have a relaxed posture with your shoulders back and to push your face slightly forward towards the camera.
