Wearing Glasses for your Headshot


Should you wear glasses in your headshot? Yes. If you normally use eyewear, you should wear them in your headshot. Since a headshot is used as an identity photo, whether it is on social media or your website, you want people to recognize you. If you choose to wear your glasses, reflection issues may arise with flash photography. I will work with you during the session to minimize glare and reflection.

Here are some tips to consider before the photo session to help ensure a natural look.

- Make sure your glasses are in good shape

- Make sure to clean your lenses

- Bring a few pairs of glasses to the shoot. If you know they have anti-glare coating make sure to bring them

- Try to bring a pair that does not have transitions or dark lenses

- Ask your optometrist’s office to pop out the lenses prior to the session (if applicable)


Glasses should be in good shape. If they are bent and crooked in a photo you look bad. Plastic frames on older glasses will lose their shine in some spots or have dents and deep scratches. Any scratched lenses will take away from a clean and polished look. Make sure you avoid all these problems and bring your newest, cleanest pairs of glasses.
