One essential part of taking good profile photos is the environment.  Choose somewhere you feel at ease: after all, one of the most important parts of portrait photography is to look relaxed, fun and happy! Whether that means taking the photo in your lounge, or outdoor,  if you are familiar with your surroundings, you will be more relaxed and look your best. If you feel comfortable and confident in the photo, it will show in your profile – and that's what you will like to portray in your dating profile !

Comfort may be king when it comes to an at-home photo shoot, but before getting too relaxed, we need to lay the ground work ! For example, if you go for a shot  at home, make sure the background is relatively tidy :).  Prepping yourself is also worth doing. This doesn’t mean giving yourself a full-on glam makeover; give a little thought to how your clothing and make up will work together.  Choose colours that suit your personality and skin tone. Try to avoid avoid busy patterns so you remain as the star of the portrait. However, if the unique flowery dress is your favourite piece in your wardrobe, feel free to go for it ! The key to successful dating photos is to look your best while displaying your style and personality.
