Executive Business Portrait Suggestions
Your Executive Business Portrait is the face of your company.
We recognize the importance of your image and have a few friendly suggestions.
Men, a dark business suit without stripes and a well pressed, free
of wrinkles, solid white or light colored shirt works the best.
Grooming is important. A freshly washed face free from oily skin
and a clean shave or trimmed beard the morning of the photo shoot keeps
you looking sharp.
Hair should be combed or brushed prior to your portrait.
Your tie can be close to corporate colors or simply a tie of your choice.
The knot in your tie can be a half or full Windsor. Keep the knot tight.
Women, a dark business suit without stripes or polka dots and a wrinkle
free solid white or light colored pastel blouse works the best.
Wear makeup and lipstick as you normally do. Finish with a natural
translucent powder to set makeup and keep shine down. If you do not
wear make-up a little translucent powder can smooth out skin tones and
keep shine down.
Optional is a little extra mascara will bring out the features of your eyes.
Hair should be combed or brushed and hair spray to tame any stray hair
prior to your portrait.
Jewelry is best kept simple. Please keep necklaces short so they do not
disappear into your blouse.
In general, well fitting clothes are important. Avoid clothing that is too
tight, and conversely not so big as to be draping. Stay away from
turtlenecks, busy patterns, plaids, sleeveless or short-sleeved
shirts/blouses unless you are wearing a business suit to cover up.
Re-touching is additional and a great tool to remove any blemishes, scars,
circles under the eyes and reflections in glasses, so please don’t
worry we can help you.
If you have any questions please call ahead of time, we will be
glad to answer any of your questions.
Most of all remember to relax and have fun.
