Should you smile in a headshot?
Should you smile in a headshot photo?
Professional headshots can have smiles with teeth, or without teeth. Or, perhaps just a hint of a smile. Your headshot can have a smile, no smile, or the expression, that makes you feel comfortable.
It really depends on the purpose of the photo and the energy, or vibe, that you want to convey. There really are no rules!
That said, one thing is for sure, I won't be taking headshots with a forced, fake, or disingenuous expressions.
If there is going to be a smile in your professional headshot, it will be a real smile.
