What to Wear to your Headshot Session | Denver Headshot Photographer

Having a tough time deciding what to wear to your head shot session? Here are our favorite tips to creating an image you will be proud to share everywhere.

1. Bring out your personality. The best thing you can do for your head shot is bring out your personality. Whether you are getting the head shots for branding, a new job, or just for fun, your personal style can make you stand out, and more relatable to the audience that is viewing them.

2. Wear something that is comfortable and compliments your body type. There is nothing worse than being uncomfortable, and if you are uncomfortable in your shoot it will show! Wear something that you are confident wearing and that compliments your body type. Remember some of the shots will probably involve you sitting so dress appropriately for that as well.

3. Dress appropriately. If you dress casually at work there is no need for the suit and tie for the your photo shoot. Look approachable and how you do at your everyday job. Don’t forget that friendly smile.02-Denver Corporate Photogra

4. Long sleeves look great on everyone. They are also more professional.

5. Choose the right colors for your skin tone. You don’t want to be washed out in your pictures and choosing the right colors for your skin tone are key to this.

6. Accessories should enhance your overall headshot. Adding some flare to your outfit is great but don’t wear an accessory that is too big or distracting. You are the focus of your head shot and there should be nothing that distracts the viewer from looking at your beautiful face.

It was a very cold Denver morning when I went over to the Bienvenidos Food Bank and helped Colorado Business Bank present them with a donation check of $5,000.

For more than 35 years, the Bienvenidos Food Bank has offered emergency food assistance to people in need. If a family is in crisis and needs food they are available no matter where a family comes from. Once a family has established themselves they continue offer on-going help for those living in the service area and assist all others to find the services they need closer to them.

On a chilly Denver afternoon, I drove down to The Gabby Krause Foundation to help Colorado Business Bank capture their check presentation of $5,000. While we were there, the CoBiz members helped put together back packs for Bags of Fun.

The Gabby Krause Foundation’s mission is to deliver a Bag of Fun to every sick child whose health and happiness is both compromised and threatened.

The power couple | Denver Corporate Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing the most awesome power couple last weekend. They came in and we bonded right away over outfit choices, posing and expressions.

 

They were a blast to photograph and each had their own businesses to get new head shots for. Both with tons of ideas on posing styles. As you can see we glammed up the posing for G with our “Beyonce” fan.

 

S had his “smolder” (as I dub the charming and cool smile) and the hip glasses look nailed down.

 

In the end we even took a few couple shots, though I really want them to come back for a couple’s session just so I can hang out with them again.

 

Need new head shots? Does your partner as well? Come in together and make each other put on those real and charming expressions!
