It's an introduction and tells your story:
Headshots are a great opportunity to tell your story. It is your introduction and first impression and allows you to show your personality. When choosing a location, be sure to pick the location that best suits your career and suitable visual aesthetic. Let's make sure your headshots align with your brand, whether that’s personal, professional or both.
It's a part of your branding:
How does a headshot align with branding? Your headshot should represent a visual style and persona you want to reflect. For example, if you work in an industry of professional services who maintains business professional attire, your attire and headshot location should match that.
It shows professionalism:
That seems obvious right? But having a professional (and updated) headshot is crucial. When your current employer requests a headshot for the website or as part of a blog or social media post, you'll have it ready. Sending along a selfie or having your friend take a quick photo against a blank wall shows lack of preparation and professionalism.
Choosing to invest into a professional headshot is a financial investment well worth the cost for your future. A quality headshot does more than just allow you to update your online avatar, it make you look good to potential employers. It infuses confidence in your own professional capabilities.
If you're ready to update your headshot for yourself or your entire team, simply fill out our contact form.
It's obvious we're embracing the entire motherhood scene these days. So much, that we recently collaborated with Lauren at Popup Picnic. We've decided we're taking the Playdate thing to a new level. Enjoy and happy early Mother's Day!
# 2: Light it up
Lighting is key to photographs. If it's dark, use a tripod (ahem, again the one above is great). A second option? Turn on some lights. If you're still looking for a little bit of assistance below are a two great options we use (for personal and business situations).
#3: Capture emotion
Making cookies with the kids? Giving mom a special gift that you know will bring her to tears? Be ready to capture it. We're not saying stay connected to your camera 24/7 to capture everything, but anticipating those special moments of laughs or tears make for the best images.
#4 Change your perspective
Get eye level with you little ones. Shoot over the should of your kids. Lurk around the tree or photograph through a window. Peek through the crack of their bedroom door. Do what every you need to for a new perspective.

The best photos are the ones you take...just for you.
