Have you considered sprucing up your social media profile picture?
The purpose of a headshot is to capture and convey elements of your personality and your brand. You are one-of-a-kind and your headshot should reveal just that. Headshots are not just for actors or models.
Relax and have fun. We turn up the tunes, wiggle, and jiggle! Who knew getting your picture taken could be so enjoyable?
WHAT TO WEAR Simplicity is key. The focus in your headshot should be on you, not your clothing. Busy patterns and large distracting jewelry are a no-no. You know what looks best on you. Choose colors that bring out your eyes and complement your skin tone.
HAIR Booking an appointment with your regular stylist before hand is a good idea. A trim, blow out, or a conditioning treatment can go a long way toward making you feel refreshed, beautiful, and camera ready.
MAKEUP Keep it natural. Do not wear heavy makeup. A headshot can reveal clumps of mascara and poorly applied lip liner. Choose light to medium eyeliners, eye shadows, and lipsticks that are only a shade or two darker than your skin tone. This brings your features out in a subtle way without making it look like you're wearing lots of makeup. Avoid applying heavy foundation, or wearing shiny eye shadows or lip gloss: too much shine is distracting on camera. Skin blemishes, pimples, and even wrinkles can be lightly retouched. It’s not cheating. I promise.
A HEALTHY GLOW Prepare for your headshot by taking care of yourself in the days leading up to your session. Avoid drinking alcohol or smoking. Drink plenty of water a few days before and on the day of your shoot. This will hydrate your skin and help to fill in lines and wrinkles, under eye circles, and give you a healthy glow. Get plenty of sleep the night before so you are rested and ready to go.

“I met Holly more recently, and just had the pleasure of working with her for a branding photo shoot. I can NOT say enough good things about my experience with Holly. I am not comfortable in front of a camera, I get stiff and weird, lol. Holly coached me and made it FUN! Chill music, a fan, and lots of laughs had me feeling like a pro in no time flat. I highly recommend Holly for any of your shoot needs, little people or big!” Trisha Williams, The Danby Gathery
