2019 has arrived!

With the new year, treat yourself to a new headshot!

As professionals, we represent our business’s visual brand. Since we want our brand to represent us, the best way to convey your professionalism is an updated professional headshot.

Whether you want a relaxed, fun headshot or you need a traditional headshot taken, make sure your headshot represents you as a person. No awkward smiles. No weird, diagonal tilts and angles. Just a dynamic, professional headshot which conveys who you and your business are.

Why should you pay for a professional headshot and not just snap a quick photo on your phone? It conveys professionalism to your website, potential clients, investors, and marketing materials.

  1. A good headshot gives your clients and investors an idea of your personality before they meet you. A serious look portrays determination. Whereas, a smile portrays approachability. A good photographer will help bring out your personality in your headshot.

  2. It reminds business contacts who you are if they have met you in the past. Having a face to go with a name gives potential clients and business associates a level of comfort than just seeing a name.

  3. A current headshot gives people a sense to see what you look like now. For example, a lot of my new clients don't have a chance to meet me in person before their first photography session. My headshot allows them to know what I look like when I meet them at a location.

  4. It supports and enhances your social media profiles, such as LinkedIn, Google Business, Facebook, and Instagram. This allows you to stand out from others who do not have a good professional headshot in their profiles.

  5. It feels good to look good in your photo! Confidence comes in many forms. Having a good, quality Headshot where you know you look good, builds confidence which can be seen by potential clients and investors.

Professional Headshots | Round Rock, TX

Do you know how important headshots are for professionals?

Think of headshots as your visual brand.

For small business owners (like myself), a photo of you represents your business.  You are the face of your business.  Your headshots should represent you at your best!

Here are a few tips for getting professional headshots done.

  1. Less is best.  Don't wear distracting clothing, but something that flatters you.  Solid colors work best no matter what kind of headshot you need for you profession.
  2. Your clothing doesn't have to match your profession.  You don't have to wear business attire in for your business headshots.  You can wear something more you and still make it look good and professional.
  3. Keep the background simple.  There's always the standard black and grey background that work great for everyone because they are neutrals.  However, you can get artistic with your background by using a solid building wall, brick building, and natural scenery.  Just make sure you stand out from your background.
  4. As your appearance changes, you need to get a new headshot.  The average life of a headshot is 2 years.  People can change a lot in two years, so keep an updated headshot that looks like you up on your profile.
  5. Hire a professional photographer.  Headshots seem simple enough, but there is a lot more to them.  Hire a professional who knows what they are doing and not your friend with a cool camera.
