In this episode of Mondays with Molly, host Molly Hebda shares valuable advice on how to prepare for a headshot session. Molly emphasizes the importance of researching the photographer beforehand and ensuring their portfolio aligns with your desired style.
Understanding the purpose of the headshots is also crucial; whether it’s for business or personal use, updating your headshot can make a significant impact on your confidence.
When it comes to clothing choices, Molly recommends bringing three different outfits to the session. These should include a professional, a casual, and a dressy option. It’s essential to avoid clothing with logos and opt for simple patterns instead. Adding layers, textures, and unique colors can help add depth and visual interest to your photos.
In terms of physical preparation, Molly suggests avoiding any drastic changes to your appearance right before the session. It’s important to stay hydrated, eat well, and take care of your skin leading up to the shoot. When it comes to makeup, Molly advises using natural-looking products and avoiding overcorrection of blemishes. It’s also best to steer clear of excessive shiny makeup, heavy eyeliner, or bold lip colors. For hair, sticking with your usual style is recommended, although professional hair and makeup services can be arranged with advanced notice if desired.
