The chillier months drive many people inside, including me!
But this year, thanks to my decision to take the plunge and add my own portrait studio to my growing photography business, I’m seeing clients before the flowers and sun emerge and family photography sessions fill my calendar.
What are we all doing (myself included)? Updating our headshots, of course.
Needham Headshot Photographer
Let’s get the obvious out of the way first: First impressions are everything.
Whether you’re using your headshot for corporate communications and marketing, your LinkedIn profile, or to start or expand a small business, it needs to be well-photographed and current.
Just like your wardrobe, your headshot needs regular updating. Not only do you likely look different, your life, energy and story has likely evolved, too.
Let your headshot tell your story.
There are so many unspoken ways that an image can shape how you’re perceived. Color choice in clothing, accessories, type of smile or expression. Great lighting!
I dare say you can’t completely dictate exact details of every image. But, with a variety of resources (including me!), we’ll capture an array of fantastic images!
I love helping clients showcase their best – and current! – selves. Take a peek at some of my recent before-and-after images.
Preparing for a studio headshot session is simple and can be quick, too. I’m often asked: What should I wear?
For professional headshots, solid colored tops, sweaters or jackets work best as patterns can distract from your face. Minimal jewelry can add the perfect finishing touch. Wear a color that compliments your eye and hair color and skin tone. Feel free to bring a couple of wardrobe options and we can choose together!
