Tips to choosing what to wear for business portraits

It is a good idea to have a professional headshot portrait to portray a good image to the people you will be connecting with. What will you wear?

For women: Choose a nice blouse or a collared shirt, paired with a suit coat and slacks or a skirt.

For men: Wear a collared dress shirt and a suit jacket. If you want to add individual style to the photos, then consider a v-neck sweater over your dress shirt, or a tie that makes a statement.

Stay away from patterns in fabric that may detract from your face. Choose a color that is right for your skin tone. Stick to darker colors to emphasis on your eyes and smile.

Make sure your portrait sends the right message.

Preparing your kids for a portrait session

Parents guide to prepare for the perfect children’s portrait session:

1. Schedule a morning appointment when kids are always more cooperative at the start of the day.

2. Have a nice, big breakfast before putting on your special outfits. There is nothing worse than trying to get a cranky, hungry child to smile.

3. Pick outfits that fit your kids style and personality. Coordinate kids clothing without overdoing it or having them wearing the exact same thing.

4. Do NOT bring your personal camera along to snap shots during the session. You’ll distract them. They will be looking at you instead of the photographer.

5. Quietly watch the shoot. If you are constantly telling your child to smile or behave, you are taking away authority from your photographer. Let the photographer do their job while maintaining a positive energy with the kids.

 

P.S. Get one shot with YOU and the kids!
