So you're nervous about your headshot session? First, you look great, you don't have to be nervous! But I totally get it, I find being in front of the camera to be a bit awkward as well. One thing that we've found works amazingly to calm nerves is some good music.
What's your favorite genre or artist? Is there a song that affects you emotionally? We definitely recommend asking whoever your photographer may be if you can listen to your jams while you shoot.
Not only will this give you something to focus on other than the camera, but if you play music that evokes strong memories it can help them capture the perfect expression.
If you have a good idea of the kind of kind of looks you want from your shoot, you can even put together a playlist for each character you want to capture. Maybe the femme fatal listens to a lot of Beyonce. Maybe your dark villain likes some Robert Johnson. Have fun with it, own those characters.
If you're looking for some recommendations, Spotify's Afternoon Acoustic playlist is great. We also love the Springsteen station on Pandora!
