Just allowing you to be yourself is what a headshot is all about. It may be for your acting career, social media page, or corporate image. However, what we all want in our headshot is an image that radiates the message, "This is me, and I like me". Confidence and approachablity stops people in their tracks and your headshot has to do that if you are to stand out in the crowd. Gone are the days where all it takes is a few clicks of the camera and you're done.
As your photographer, I don't expect you to be sprinting out of the gate nailing your headshot right off the bat, although a few do. I take the time to allow you to be yourself in front of a camera.
