Is it time to get your CT headshots updated? If your headshot was taken with your boyfriend’s iPhone in the gym parking lot, maybe so. It’s super important to remember when you’re constructing your online presence, your headshot can make or break you. Your headshot is one of the first things people look at, and it’s the first impression of you they will see. And we all know how important that first impression is.
What does it say about you? Are you confident? Are you put together? Do you care about the details? Is your appearance neat? Are you progressive in your business thinking? Friendly and approachable? Or are you lagging behind the times? Look insecure? Unorganized? Outdated and careless about your appearance? Or worse, unapproachable and full of yourself? All of this and more, good and bad, can be translated to your potential client when they see your headshot. They will make a decision if you are the one they will hire, so your image needs to convey all that you are and all that you’re not! Your business depends on it.
So many people tell me that they hate their current, boring, CT corporate headshots, forced on them by their companies, and that’s why they come to me, to get images that accurately represent them – their brand. They want to show who they are, their creativity, their style, their determination to think out of the box, their resistance to mediocrity, and yes, all of those things and many more are demonstrated in a headshot. A really cool and trendy headshot. I know it; you probably never realized that your image speaks volumes about who you are and where you’re going.
I recently took headshots of Evonne, who is a CT scientist. She works in product development and once had maybe the coolest job ever – developing ice cream! I know, you’re jealous.
She also owned a tarantula, but I digress.
So, if you’re ready to get really awesome headshots and elevate your brand to the next level, shoot me an email or give me a call. I’m ready for you and your extraordinary coolness….wink, wink.
She did it. Keara, a CT high school senior planned her family’s portrait session. She knew that someday she would want to look back and have memories of herself and her parents together. She even planned their outfits and the location. To be honest, I was a little awestruck that a teenager would go to such lengths to document family memories. She inspired me greatly.
I find it sad that we have become so busy that we don’t have time to live. To sit. To think or ponder our inner state. To look through photo albums and discuss memories and remember our pasts, our families, with smiles in our hearts. To just be – for a minute. We are always running to the next thing, no matter how legitimate it might be. I am guilty too.
And then I think about how my children would feel if something should happen to me and they had few, if any, tangible memories of us together in picture form because you know, I am always behind the camera.
So I’m going to walk a new road and let someone else hold the camera for awhile. And I’m going to print those digital pictures so I can hold them in my hand, or put them in a frame, or an album. And I’m going to keep reminding you how important it is for you to take pictures of not just your kids, but YOU with your kids.
Because they would definitely want that.
As a CT headshot photographer that specializes in headshots for actors, I get to see all the lovelies, but there is just something about red hair and freckles, and Larkin had both. Yay for me! And yay for you that you get to momentarily bask in her loveliness!
And I’d love to bask in yours too, even if you don’t have red hair and freckles.
As a South Windsor, CT senior portrait photographer, I run into a lot a students from surrounding areas that get forced into using photographers they don’t like, and into buying expensive packages they don’t need. These photographers are chosen by their high schools and are really limiting, especially for parents that are on a budget. And even more for students that have vision and know what they want their senior sessions to be.
Believe me. I get it. I’m a parent and I’m on a budget too. I also have vision and I know what I would want if I was a senior. And that would be options. Options to buy what I want and style my own session the way I want.
And that’s what I do here. You don’t have to buy an expensive package. You can buy just the session, which includes a high resolution senior photo for the yearbook and nothing more. Or you can select a collection to remember this really important milestone. One print or twenty; it’s up to you. Everything from styling your session and look, to choosing your location and theme; the choice is yours.
Give me a call to reserve your date. We’re now booking senior portrait sessions for the 2015-2016 school year.
