One of the services I provide as a portrait photographer is business branding and headshot portraiture. You may be thinking, why do I need a headshot, I’m not an actor or a realtor? However, do you have a professional small business? Are you on social media? Are you in the dating scene? Do you have a blog or are “out there on the web” in any way saying who you are and what you are about to you audience through the photographs you are using? Do you LOVE those photographs?  Most of us really can benefit from a well-done recent image. When we out and about, we can make whatever impression we would like to give, but in the digital electronic world we live in, our images on the web are often the first impression our audience has of us. Our image says who we are and what we're all about before we ever personally meet our audience. Like they say, we never have a second chance to make a first impression. Do your images accurately say who you are and what you want to say. Does they currently serve you well? Do you love them?

Before I take your portraits, we’ll sit down and chat a little about what it is you want to do and say with your portraits, who you want to say it to, and how you want to be represented to your audience. These are very important things to think about before I take your portraits, because I want to capture of glimpse of who you are to your audience. So what is that you want to say in your portraits? Professional and powerful, or friendly and approachable? In your portraits, you want to look like how you want to be treated and represented in your photos. Look the part in how you are presented visually and take it seriously.  A small investment in your portraits tells your audience you care and take yourself seriously. A professional portrait will stand out in the crowd, all things otherwise equal, that shows your depth and personality over a selfie or photo you had your friend take of you. Even better are images taken within a year of each other.

I hope this helps you think about what your photographs say about you. Do they really say who you are and what you are about to your audience?  Do you love them? If you are at all out there wanting to say something important, a well done- recent portrait that expertly depicts who you are, shows you care deeply, and will serve you well. So you have only one shot to make a great first impression and a great headshot is all to often the only opportunity to make that great first impression.
