We'll likely only see your shoulders and a little of your chest (unless we have made some unusual plans)
so wear something you like, something easy for you to move around in.
If you wear stripes or prints, the patterns will pull attention from your face.
Bright colors (especially vivid reds, oranges, and yellows), can be distracting, especially for headshots.
Generally, the color of clothing that we will see on your shoulders and chest should contrast with your hair and complement your eyes. The impact of contrasting your hair color depends on the length of your hair, the longer it is, the better it is to contrast the color. And choosing a color that complements your eyes can really pull out their color. Avoid anything too low cut or sleeveless, the color and tone of your skin on your arms and/or chest can distract from your face.
Again, jewelry can draw attention away from your face.
Allow some time to get comfortable with your new hair before your portrait session. Prepare your hair as if you are going out for the evening, nice, but normal for you.
Arrive with a clean, dry face.
Face moisturized if there is a particular brand you like to use.
If you know there is something you are looking for then send some photos of makeup examples ahead of time for us to talk about.
And if you haven't already, send us a selfie for the makeup artists.
Again, keeping it simple is the goal, smokey eyes, dramatic eyeliner, things like this should be avoided. In this situation, even the most elegantly applied makeup can easily become distracting or seem unnatural.
