The best advice for online dating photos

High quality dating profile pictures are a critical part of your online dating profile. This is a fact! We want to make sure your sitting with us goes the best it can. Our goal – to make YOU SHINE!

Here are some tips to make sure you look your best for your online dating pictures:

1) Be sure to get plenty of rest the night before your pictures! (Ideally you would have several consecutive nights of sleep).

2) The day before and the day of drink as much water as you can and then drink another glass. This will hydrate your skin.

3) Be sure to use lotion, which also hydrates your skin

4) Plan the night before what you are going to be wearing. Bring alternative outfits just in case they are needed. Do not forget to accessories!

5) Be ready for full body shots and think about how your outfit will highlight various areas of your body on camera.

6) Shower, shave, & brush those teeth.

7) Walkout the door at the very beginning of the day looking picture ready! Even if your pictures are not till later in the day or are in the evening, it is important that you feel great all day long. You will be far more confident and ready for the camera if you have been getting positive responses all day long.

8) Bring your hair kit, make-up kit, and toothbrush and toothpaste to your photo session

9) Plan to arrive a half hour early for your photo session. You do not want to be stressed out by running late, so plan a head and block out enough time that will allow you to do any personal touch-ups if needed.

Actions to avoid:

1) If you are wishing to get a hair style, do so at the very latest 2 weeks before your photos. This will allow room for possible error and or time for you to get used to styling your new hair cut and be confident in how you look.

2) Do not go tanning for the first time in a month or so, the day before or the day of your photos. Having a nice glow to your skin that a tan can bring is definitely a very nice touch. You will want to start tanning 2 weeks before hand to allow your color to balance out and will limit the likelihood of you showing up like a lobster to your pictures.

3) Buying a new outfit the day of your photos. Pick your outfits out a head of time and at the very least test drive the outfit before your pictures. The reason I suggest this is because if you are uncomfortable with the outfit you have chosen it will show in your pictures.

4) Eating or drinking items just before your photos. Lets face it accidents happen and some foods and drinks may stain your mouth or teeth and we do not want that.

The best advice I can give you is, think of your photo session as the first date you will have with the companion you desire.  Walk out the door feeling sexy and sassy, and prepared to sweep Mr. or Ms. Wonderful off his or her feet.

  3. Number 1 on things to avoid is really good advice. I’ve found that for most of my haircuts, they look the best after I have “grown into them” anyway so to speak.

    And number 4 is really important too but all too easy to forget :)

  4. Joseph,

    Thank you for commenting on this article.

    Hair styles are tricky. Coming from a family that loved family protraits it was clockwork, the boys would go in 1 week before pictures to get their hair cut. Your not alone, most people need a little time to “grow into them”.

    Knowing what you are going to wear is def. a very easy one. What I like about it is if you plan it the night before the rest of the night you think about how good your going to look in it. Then when you put it on in the morning, you feel like you look good in it, therefore you Do look good in it and that confidence shows in your pictures.
