Today it is important to look your best. Everything is found on the internet, which means EVERYTHING lives in the cyber world, which is why it’s so important now more than ever to portray the image you want. Let’s be honest, the first thing a prospective client or employee does is to look you up on every social media platform that’s under the sun. They look at your personal Facebook page, LinkedIn, Twitter, and your Instagram too! Now that it’s the 21st century, first impressions are made with the photos you put on any of your social media profiles, not just in person.
We'll work together to customize your headshot & branding session to your liking. Inquire for more information.
As much as you want to tell yourself that your most recent selfie will work for your LinkedIn profile, the truth is that selfies are no longer cutting it. You really do need a professional headshot that will make you look like an adult, and most importantly, a part of the working world.
One thing you need to ask yourself is if your profile picture represents your brand. Your headshot should complement you in a genuine and confident way. We’ll work together to create an exceptional headshot that captures your “brand” and tells your story. Let me help you create something that will make your prospective employer think, “I want to work with this person.” Or “They look trustworthy”.
When planning your outfit, it’s important to consider who your audience is. It could be prospective clients, potential employees, or employers. What industry are you in? Tech, HR, sales?
Next, think about your style and what makes YOU feel and look confident. It’s not a one shoe fits all approach here. Your headshots should tell your story and give off a sense of what you’re like.
It’s also important to make sure your clothes fit properly and are ready to be photographed. Make sure your suit fits correctly, or that your dress is a business-appropriate length.
Make sure you’re wearing the proper undergarments. I can work some magic in photoshop but editing out a stray bra strap or panty line is a very tedious task. Wearing a nude color under a white dress or top is the best option because white under white does in fact show up.
We can take pictures on location (outside, at your office, etc.) or at a studio. It really depends on what industry you’re in and what style you’re going for. We will work together to find the perfect location that represents you, your brand, and the feeling you want to express through your photos. Rest assured, I always look for the best lighting and composition.
I do not, but I can give you a list of professional hair and makeup artists you can contact to see if they're available for your session date.
- If you’re someone who has facial hair, be sure to shave the night before your headshot and branding photo shoot. If you shave a few hours before your photo shoot your skin will look red and irritated.
- If you wear glasses, I suggest wearing a pair that don’t have any lenses in them. Lenses can distort your eyes and can cause reflections. Distorted eyes and reflections are not easily fixable in Photoshop, and if I were to try and fix them in Photoshop it wouldn’t look natural.
You'll hear from me within the next 24 hours.
