Happy Monday! This past weekend, I had a headshot photo session with Kristin Tatem. I am in the process of upgrading my blog design, and I wanted to update my photos.
The first thing I did was pick out my outfit for the photo session. When picking out an outfit go with colors that work with your skin tone. What color do people always compliment you on? That’s the color you want to choose. I chose a lavender lightweight sweater.
Stay away from busy patterns. Patterns can easily become dated and can overwhelm a photo. You want your face to take center stage in a headshot, so keep your colors simple and solid.
Avoid tons of bling. Accent pieces of jewelry are a great way to give your headshot a little personality. But, be careful, you don’t want a massive necklace stealing your thunder.
Kristin had Sara Drury at the photo session to do my makeup. She did a great job of giving me a natural look without overdoing my makeup.
I checked out the final look, and now I’m ready for the pictures.
Kristin showed me how she wanted me to sit for some of the photos.
And then she started shooting. I can’t wait to use these pictures for my new blog design.
I took a few pictures of this outfit after church on Sunday. The tie front sweater comes in several colors, but I’m wearing the purple sheer. The tie sweater would be great to wear to work. I love the sleeve length.
I’m wearing Wit & Wisdom ankle skimmer jeans. They are a fabulous pair of dressier jeans that will dress up casual Friday. They’re dark-washed with a slim, trim fit and an ankle-grazing length.
