GLAM Senior Portraits

For those of you who have not seen my announcement I am now offering GLAM sessions for senior girls.  The photoshoot replaces the traditional senior portrait session in the sense that I have a hair and makeup stylist that works with the girls making sure they are picture ready for their session!  Included with this special senior photoshoot is a makeup bag that I advertised on my Facebook page.  Go check it out to see some of what is offered!  With every GLAM senior portrait session you are welcome to bring a friend or up to three friends to share in the experience!  Here is a shoot that I did with Abbi and Cayce at my office, OPO startups.

First up is Abbi!

Then I decided have a little fun with girls to get a little less traditional shot.  I love shooting these because the result will never be the same.  It’s literally like a having a personal piece of art of yourself!

Why you need a new headshot

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.
