Thinking happy thoughts during your photo session puts a natural sparkle in your eyes, relaxes your facial muscles and makes your smile appealing. This helps attract the one who’s looking for YOU! Another thing that helps make an eye catching portrait is to wear colors that flatter your complexion and your eye color. 

TIP: Combine confidence and engaging eye contact; these are the sexiest things you can wear!

Whether you’re just getting started or you’re firmly established, a well-crafted headshot is your calling card. Practice a natural smile in front of your mirror and make strong eye contact to catch the viewer’s attention.

TIP: Round out your portfolio by adding half-length and full-length photos. Vary your wardrobe to include formal and active wear. This will demonstrate your range of style. Vary your expressions, as well: laughing, serious, friendly, etc.

You want your senior portraits to be authentically you, so that years from now, when your kids look at your graduation photos, they’ll smile and say, “Hey, you were really cool!” Let your smile follow along with happy thoughts for a natural expression.

TIP: Try your clothes on several days prior to your photo session. Make sure everything fits and flatters.
