Houston Professional Headshots
A good headshot is one that will make you look your best. It’s a portrait of you that is flattering and attractive. A great headshot is one that tells the story of who you are and what you do. It’s a picture that captures the essence of who you are and shows your personality.
As a Houston Headshots photographer, I help brands, professionals, entrepreneurs get headshots that stand out from the crowd.
In the world of business, we all know and understand the importance of being someone clients and customers can know, like, and trust.
I love hearing from my clients how much they feel comfortable around me. This is the number one thing clients, young and old, tell me they love about working with me. Because of this, I know firsthand how the feeling of comfort translates into better photographs.

Comfortability and confidence in portraits are what I do best.
A Guide to Professional Headshots
Headshots are a great way to capture the best images of your business or yourself. Whether you want to showcase your talent in front of a camera or you want to look your best for a business meeting or interview, professional headshots can help you achieve these goals. The best way to get those photos is by booking a professional headshot photographer. In this post I’m providing tips on planning for professional headshots.
Why plan for professional headshots?
The best way to plan the best professional headshots photo session is to contact a professional photographer. A Houston headshot photographer like myself will be able to
- give you tips on how to prepare for your headshots,
- help you choose the best location for your photos.
For example, depending on your brand and specialty, an outdoor headshot may be better than a studio headshot session.
If you’re wanting traditional studio headshots, we’ll discuss the best colors for headshots. On the other hand, outdoor or on-location sessions can be a general area (like a high rise or tech building), and even your company headquarters.
Selecting your professional headshot photographer
The next step is hire a professional photographer. To be frank, headshot photographers are a dime a dozen. You should do some research on the photographer you want to hire. Ask friends, family, and your professional network for recommendations. And since every photographer is different, it’s important to check their web site to see if they have any experience with your type of shoot.
You can check out the photographer’s portfolio to see if he or she has done similar shoots before. You should also ask for references or check reviews. Make sure that the photographer you hire is someone you can trust to deliver and communicate effectively.
Scheduling Your Headshots
You should have a specific day of the week or date and time in mind. Taking into account how soon you may need your headshots for marketing materials is incredibly important. I always recommend a backup date in case plans change.
Outfits and Wardrobe
The next thing you should do is to have a few outfits for the photographer to choose from. You can wear a plain t-shirt and jeans. Or you can wear a suit. Wear something that will represent your brand and that you feel comfortable in. When you’re uncomfortable, it shows. If you’re not sure where to start, you can always start with your profession, or industry standard, or uniform.
- Nurses or others in the medical field wear scrubs.
- Legal and financial service professionals typically wear suits.
- Chefs, their uniforms.
Whether you’re feeling out an online questionnaire or completing a discovery call, it helps to give your photographer an idea of what you’ll be wearing. Based on your wardrobe and background color preferences, I may offer wardrobe selections or a change in the background color. If it helps, you can also give me (or your photographer) a list of problem areas or colors you would like to avoid.
