  • Headshot Tips
    • Dress how you want to be portrayed!
    • Avoid wearing items that may cast shadows including heavy/solid earrings. Ensure ties and lapels are pressed flat.
    • Avoid wearing white or very light tops, unless under a darker jacket, as these may blend into the background. Dark and medium tones shoot best.
    • Avoid wearing ties, blouses, or other accessories that are too loud/have a heavy pattern.
    • Relax! This will be a low-pressure shoot in a friendly environment. Most people describe working with our photographer as having a conversation with a friend.
  • After Your Shoot

    You’ll be able to review and choose your headshot in the booth. Our photographer will retouch your chosen photo and we’ll share a download link with you via email after ALA.

  • A Note on Retouching

    The photographer may be able to remove spots or other minor things on your wardrobe, but can’t change the colors of your garments, how they fit, or shadows cast by or on them. Keep this in mind when selecting your outfit!
