4. SIMPLY GET STARTED

Before you point the camera at them, tell them what to expect during the shoot and let them know it’s OK to be themselves. Give the subject a clear idea of how you plan to direct them and let them know they are in good hands. There is no need to be nervous! Start the session off with the most formal outfit and get the traditional headshot done right off the bat. It’s a simple pose that breaks the ice, plus it’s a surefire sale and something you don’t ever want to forget! After that, they begin to feel comfortable with the situation and can loosen up a bit and begin to give you the best natural expressions.
