everyone these days needs a good headshot. maybe its for Facebook or LinkedIn or your own business website. whatever it is, people want to see who you are. so that means, you need to have a GOOD photo showing off your best self. this first impression tells so much about your personality, your business and your brand.
here are three tips to consider when having a professional photographer take your portrait:
1) Invest in professional makeup and hair. These experts know what looks good on camera and can help you look your best. Just don’t go overboard and do anything too fancy. You want to look like yourself. Plus, confidence comes through when you know you look good!
2) Wear clothes that make you FEEL and look great. I always recommend a pop of color that compliments the eye color. I also like simple patterns that can add interest to the photo. Avoid overdressing or using busy patterns.
3) Find a photographer that you feel comfortable with and who understands you and your business. This is key! Your portrait is very revealing and if you don’t feel relaxed, it will show. Your head shot should show off your unique personality. It should be engaging and interesting.
i tend to work with creative professionals and entrepreneurs because i like the "non traditional" headshot. no backdrops, no studio lights. just your confident self in natural light. this works for some professionals but not for all. let me know if we can work together. i would LOVE to photograph you!
