Head-shots and/or Profile Pictures

I know a lot of my blog readers are budding photographers and entrepreneurs of business. I want to write a blurb about getting quality head-shots or profile pictures done! I know it can be hard to fork out cash when you’re already struggling to make ends meet but, nothing says your personality and your professionalism better then a great photo. Think about it!

On my website I had pictures of just me, me with my family and me having fun…all things that are important to me and I want potential clients to know about me! As a photographer I obviously value the power of still life but, I truly believe it speaks louder then words. I’m a website “bouncer” then only thing that makes me want to read is a picture…that’s when I stop cause it catches my attention!

Here’s some examples I just took of profile pictures:

Example A is more traditional and professional because it captures the room/office. The suit says she means business.

Example B is more fun, vibrant with color and she’s laughing instead of serious. The scarf says she’s creative and easy to work with. This would be great on a website accompanied by her profile.

are a combination of fun and serious. Either can be used anywhere website or print.

I hope this is helpful! AND I HOPE YOU GET INSPIRED TO HAVE NEW PICTURES TAKEN:)

Noemi, a little bit of photoshop botox in the crease between my eyes would have been helpful! ( :

No, I am just kidding…I love these photos already…and as you know, I was very nervous about getting my picture taken. They’re going to be so helpful for my business and my web site, but I think it’s also great to have a photo for the year I turn 40!
Thanks for the positivity and energy you put into the (10 minute) shoot! R…
