Have fun. A lot of times when we are first getting started my clients are a little uptight and nervous. Which is totally normal. As a photographer, it is my job to make them feel comfortable. I love to tell jokes and openly compliment them. Every single one of my clients are beautiful and they need to be told that. After a few minutes they are already feeling better and maybe, just maybe even enjoying it! If they are too posed, it does not look genuine. I want my subjects to be as genuine as possible in these images. This happens when my clients are having fun! For the client, do have fun. Remember you seriously can’t mess up. Trust your photographer and try to relax! Before your wedding headshots Houston TX, practice in the mirror. As vain as that sounds, it works!

Be YOU. Your head shots should represent you or your brand if you are a business owner. Your styling must be consistent with, and reflect, who you are and what you do.
