look relaxed in your headshot

An approachable headshot is key!

Looking stiff and uncomfortable in your professional headshot can make you appear unprofessional and unprepared. In this blog post, we will discuss three ways to look more relaxed and polished in your headshot!

  1. The first way to look more relaxed in your headshot is by practicing your facial expressions in the mirror. Find a few different expressions that you feel comfortable with and practice them until they become second nature.
  2. The second way to look more relaxed in your headshot is by wearing clothing that makes you feel good. Choose an outfit that is both comfortable and flattering, and avoid anything that feels constricting or uncomfortable.  I recommend to my clients they dress as if they were going to attend a marketing event within their industry. 
  3. The third way to look more relaxed in your headshot is by taking a deep breath and smiling! A genuine smile will help you look more relaxed and happy, which is always a plus in a professional setting.   

Following these tips, you'll be sure to look relaxed and professional with the right attitude and outfit, you'll be able to achieve the perfect headshot that captures your unique personality.
