Having a fabulous headshot is a critical piece to your success, and shouldn't be overlooked. Headshot sessions are for those who know the importance of making a great first impression, and who take their online presence seriously. Your headshot is a powerful tool that assigns a face to your brand, and is the key to standing out in any saturated market. Whether you’re a entrepreneur, a blogger, a creative, an actor, author, dancer, or a professional in the corporate world, it’s time to uplevel your brand, and ditch the selfies. Let's create a compelling image that speaks of your professionalism, warmth and skill. Let them know you mean business.
REALITY CHECK... We all do it. We judge the book by it’s cover, and the thing is, their judging you by your headshot. If it's looks unprofessional, they're going to call someone else. Your headshot is your calling card, the face of your business, and the first thing anyone sees when they search for you, so it needs to be the best you've got. In fact, you can almost say having a bad headshot is much like having a dirty welcome mat.
Let's face it, if you want to be successful you must have a professional image that visually shows the viewer who you are, and what they can expect from you. Are you trustworthy? Confident? Are you put together? Credible? A professional headshot shapes the perception of your audience, by showing them those things about you that you want them to see. It let’s people know that you are confident and approachable, and you have your stuff together. Then they'll know can trust their decision to take a chance on you and you're going to deliver because your headshot says so.
Your headshot is your calling card and the first thing they'll see. Is your selfie representing you well?
