Thank you so much for choosing Alexa Janell Photography to capture your business headshots!
Deciding what to wear for a session can be fun for some and overwhelming for others. This guide provides a few tips to help prepare for your headshot session.
When choosing an outfit, it's important to feel comfortable. We may be walking and sometimes sitting to get the best images, so it's helpful to keep that in mind.
Wearing layers to your session can provide a variety of styling options.
Adding a scarf or a jacket creates a whole new look.
If it's too warm outside for layers, bringing several options is absolutely welcome.
Simplicity is key when it comes to accessories, less is more. A beautiful necklace, ring, or earrings will definitely add a nice touch to a portrait. A little bit goes a long way.
You might prefer wearing glasses if this is your everyday look. It's important to keep in mind that a glare may occur. Wearing a set of spectacles without the lenses is an option to consider.
It's important to remember that this session is unique to you! Keep in mind the industry you’re in and what makes sense for you. A fitness trainer can get away with a simple fitted T-shirt to show off their athletic body. A dancer might wear a leotard or a shirt that flows. A business professional may go with something more formal.
It's best to avoid busy patterns that may clash with one another.
Wearing a jacket or blazer is definitely a great look for headshots. It's a simple addition that really upgrades the look. Additionally, removing the jacket allows for a completely different look with the shirt alone.
Standing in front of the mirror can be helpful when choosing what to wear.
