It is wholesome. It is milk. And at Merry Dairy, it is simply the finest. Our local farmers care for cows that are not raised, as much as pampered. Fed a natural diet, designed by a nutritionist, they eat oats, almond hulls, corn and fresh alfalfa. They’re never given a growth hormone. Never given anything that would compromise their health. These cows yield a milk that is as pure and delicious and perfect … as it is white. You’ll find this milk in each and every dairy product Merry Diary makes – from our ice cream to our Fruimies: a fat free blend of natural fruit juices and creamy yogurt in delicious flavors kids just love.
Merry Dairy. Pure. Wholesome. Good.

- Good lighting (use natural light or well-lit area – avoid dark/dim areas)
- Look professional (appropriate hair, clean and ironed shirt)
- Film from waist to a little above the head (not closer, not farther)
- Wear a shirt that is contrasting in color (opposite color of skin tone) and plain (no design)
- Perform script as if talking to a friend (smile, don’t rush, be you)
- Keep face towards camera (ignore distractions)
- Film in landscape mode (long ways – not up and down)
- Prepare and practice before you record and submit

Hiring a professional photographer to capture the perfect headshot is a smart thing to do. But for whatever reason you don’t, here are a few tips to help you through the headshot process!
- Your Background
- Your background should be free of distractions. Some photography spots that make a photo interesting may not be a great spot for headshots. Headshots are about you and you only. Simple, clean background.
- Stand away from the background. Meaning don’t stand up against a wall.
- Avoid shadows on your face or anywhere in the photo.
- IDEAS: In the shadow of a plain outside building wall, no grooves. A field of manure (did it before and it works). A dark sheet. FYI, if you can tell it’s a field of manure or a sheet it’s not a good background. If you know how, blur your background during editing for a nice clean look.
- Your Look
- Most headshots choose the “professional” look. If you plan a different look, choose it for intentional reasons.
- Neutral colors are best. Some examples: white, cream, tan, black, blue.
- Choose simple jewelry and plain clothing designs. You want the focus to be on you not what you’re wearing.
- TIP: Iron your clothes! Headshots tell the world who you are. If you want work, start out by ironing your clothes!
- Soft and even lighting. This will help to eliminate the bright whites and shadows that don’t make for good photos, as well as makes editing tough.
- Your Photo
- Your headshot should be either mid-chest up or shoulders up. Depending on the purpose, a waist up look may also be appropriate.
- Don’t do a full body photo for your headshot. Full body photos are typically used for modeling headshots only.
- Your eyes are the focus. Eliminate anything that will be a distraction from this – background, clothing, etc.
- Pictures should be straight up and down, not shot diagonal.
- Sitting down makes for a comfortable shoot. Your hands in resting position will help with “what do I do with my hands?”.
- Be you. Trying to mimic a “look” may only get you a “what is this person doing?” look. Be you.
- Your Photo Shoot
- Decide locations before the actual photoshoot. Scout out areas at the same time of day you plan to have your photo shoot so you know what to expect, like shadows, etc.
- Be aware of what it takes. It may take several smiles, several tries, several clicks for you to get the best snapshot of you. That’s the process, so stick with it … because it’s worth it!
- Be Positive. Photoshoots can be stressful, hot, and long. Remember why you’re there. Stay positive!
To help you get the idea of what’s a great headshot and what’s not, we’ve included a few of Susan and Ryan and one of Aunt Sybil (yes, we see this kind sent in as a headshot – we don’t want this kind – cute photo tho).
