As a headshot photographer, I have clients who come in ALL the time with their own expert tips on how they want to “look” in their headshot.  One thing I have heard a lot of is, I don’t want to smile in my photo.  I want to have a friendly expression with no smile.  Unless you are trying to look like a drone, please smile.  If you never smile anyways or if you have a creepy smile, we can discuss other options, but otherwise, please smile!  It’s what people love about you and it’s how they are going to connect to you.  So for today’s Tip and Tricks, it’s an easy, but often overlooked one…SMILE!!!

Smile in your headshot
