Does your current headshot make you smile with confidence or laugh out loud?
Last Saturday was National Headshot Day and we had a lot of fun looking through the threads of everyone's great and not so great images from the past. Some of the celebrity headshots are amazing!
If you think it might be time for a new headshot, it probably is. It depends on your profession, but a good general rule to follow for updating headshots is every 2 to 3 years for an adult (sooner if hair and weight changes) and every 6 months for a child.
It's easy to look back at an image of yourself and laugh. What's not so funny is when you are still using a headshot that is obviously outdated. Hairstyles change, fashion trends change, our faces and bodies change. Heck, even photography techniques change! Don't forget that you are your brand whether you are a business owner, a real estate agent, an actor or even just representing yourself on social media and business platforms. It is important, now more than ever, that you put your best face forward!
It wouldn't be fair if I didn't share some of my classic headshots from a modeling agency back when I was 18 or 19. DON'T LAUGH! Okay...laugh a little. We sure did.
Take a look at your current professional headshot or LinkedIn profile picture and ask yourself two questions.
First, what does your headshot say about you?
Second, is that how you want to be seen by the world?
They always say you can't judge a book by its cover but unfortunately we do live in a society that does exactly that. With the technologically advanced world we live in it's nearly impossible to connect with each other both socially and professionally without some sort of image exchange. This is why it is incredibly important that your headshot represents your true self and the way you want to be seen by the world.
For over 10 years I’ve been fortunate enough to be a key component in helping others seek out their passions and put their best face forward by giving them a really great professionl headshot. Everyone from actors and creatives to business professionals and singles. They've all stood before my camera for that one image that will showcase their personality, strength, intelligence, confidence and million dollar smile.
Let us do the same for you.
