Unless you’re a chronic sourpuss and want to attract another sourpuss, please think happy thoughts and smile naturally. So ladies, get your hair done in a flattering style, apply your make up with care or have it applied professionally, choose a few nice outfits then give me a call to schedule your dating profile photography session.
An experienced professional portrait photographer will know how to give cues to elicit a natural expression that will attract, not repel. Gentlemen, same for you: get a good haircut, maybe even a facial and manicure. Then schedule your dating site photography session: My promise to you: professional photos for online dating, perfectly composed photographs for your social networking and online dating profiles; truthful, no-nonsense pictures of you looking happy, relaxed and well-groomed.
Some photos taken casually during a birthday party or gathering are fine, but they shouldn’t be your ONLY representation, and all your pictures should be of excellent quality, regardless of the source.
My date, who is “from away,” was mystified to hear that the guy was a recent ex-boyfriend of mine and the girl was the one he dated directly after me.
A successful dating site headshot is well-composed (head and shoulders) with a relaxed, natural expression.
The background is complimentary and not distracting, your posture and expression are engaging and happy. We all know that dating profiles with photos get MUCH more attention than those without.
(womp womp) But there is hope, and it comes in the form of tough love.
Unless your new lover has been celibate or they just moved here from Brooklyn (you lucky SOB) they have almost certainly dated someone you know, you know OF, your friends know, or your ex knows.
