While a lot of my website shows individuals and corporate shots I love to photograph a family doing what they love to do. Far too often I get parents who try to hold their children’s head and yell at them to smile because they want a good photo. Parents, there’s no need! Go have fun! Go explore! I loved photographing the William’s family for that very reason. They love to go camping, like we did at Klondike park for their shoot, and spend time with each other exploring which is what made this day such a fun one for all of us! I hope you enjoy these and I hope the next time you book your family session you keep this in mind for your family.
Most of us probably overlook getting a new headshot. We may think it’s unnecessary or not important to update our headshot. The reality is that when someone looks at your business they look at you first and make a decision based on their impression whether they want to work with you or not. So then the question is what is your headshot saying about you? Does it send the message that you’re trying to send to a potential client?
I often seen LinkedIn profile pictures that people post that look like it’s their Facebook profile picture they took at a party. Now if you’re a professional party planner then by all means use that photo. If you are in a corporate field, however, then your photo should depict that. You will be much more trusted in your business if your headshot reflects the person you are and the service you provide.
Here is a headshot I recently took for Julie. After a brief consultation with her she decided a more professional headshot would benefit her and her business. Below is the update to her headshot.
