The first question she asked me is, "What should I wear?"
Then she asked me what I was going to wear. And so I called up the event curator and asked her what she was going to wear!
My sister met up with me before I went on stage to give me a hug and to remind me "You got this." Then she complimented my dress and said, "You look like You."
Best. Compliment. Ever.
It was very important to me that I show up authentically when I spoke about my work, and why I do it. And the fact that someone close to me felt that my clothing choice reflected that was freakin' awesome!
The way that we dress is so important, because it projects valuable information about us - even before we speak.
That's why one of the biggest questions I get asked by clients when we're prepping for their session is "What should I wear?"
It's a big stress point for a lot of people, so I always send a checklist over to help clients get their choices in order.
And since I'm getting my own head shots done this month (yay and eek!), I took a look at my checklist decided to put together a short video for you on some of the options I'm considering from my own wardrobe.
In this video I talk about things you should look for in your own closet, why they work, and how you can pair them with other items to create variations and interest!
Hopefully this video provides you with a good starting point, and a checklist that you can take to your own closet when you're getting ready to step in front of the camera.
Is there anything else that you might add to the list? Let me know in the comments below!
