You finally have your gallery in hand from your personal branding session. You look at the images that were created just for you. You get all excited about finally using those new images on your website and in promoting your business on all of your social media platforms. Then it hits you. You’re stuck! How do you actually get those messages and special promos you see other brands so effortlessly push out onto your own images?
It’s time to chill, grab a glass of wine and sit down at your computer. Here is my simple checklist of information you want to have at the ready:
You booked a headshot session and are looking through your closet to find the perfect outfit to complement your eye color and face shape. You style your hair and add jewelry to pull your outfit together. You want to look your best so your portrait will show your beautiful self and ooze confidence. Your headshot is your calling card, it needs to make a good first impression.
STOP! Aren’t you forgetting something? Your face deserves special care as well.
Anita answered my model call for a headshot series I wanted to create to educate clients about the importance of the right amount of make-up for business headshots. The session with her turned into so much more and we had an amazing time creating fashion portraits. Anita told me how much she loved modeling and wanting to do more. Then she posted this story on her facebook page.
I love all things Gatsby and so I was thrilled when my photographer friend Emily of Emily Brunner Photography asked me to be her second shooter for this special wedding at Hilltop House in Devon, PA.
Before every family portrait session I connect with each family to learn more about what they enjoy doing together and also what type of images they enjoy the most and would love to display in their home. Do you prefer more traditional portraits that have you looking and smiling into the camera or do you prefer emotive photographs that allow for interaction with each other, touching and laughing together and show the connection within the family. Daniel and Natalie, like most of my families wanted a mix of both and so that is what we went for during this hour long session.
