I’d say about half of the time, when a client first stands in front of the camera they ask “Am I supposed to smile?” or, “What should I do with my hands?” It’s funny to me, because they don’t realize that in a minute we are going to give them so much direction that they know exactly what to do. Here’s a short list of things we adjust throughout the shoot:
We show you the images as we’re shooting so you can tell us “I like this one… let’s go more in this direction.” Don’t be afraid to experiment in your headshot session. At the end of the day YOU get to choose the final image (and you’ll have a TON to choose from). Speak up if there is something you’re not crazy about, but also be willing to go out of your comfort zone to get what you’re looking for. It might feel weird/silly/strange, but you’ve got to trust the process! We’re not happy until you are.
