Branding and Headshots – My Turn to Update Professional Images

Ready for your close-up?

When I noticed that my own personal branding and headshots were in desperate need of updating, I thought I’d try something other than the self timer …

So, after almost 10 years, it was high time I updated my own professional images. And since I’m so big on making others feel comfortable in front of the camera, I decided it was time the tables were turned!  Rather than set up my gear for a self portrait where I can control the camera with a remote, I decided to dive in & put myself at the mercy of my 2 teenage children!

Yes, I know, what could I have been thinking?!? Behold the only 2 shots that passed my scrutiny when I had my son wield the camera & my daughter direct my posing … the consensus was that I am a nightmare client!!

Headshots say so much.

What did I learn?  Firstly, that the ability to help someone relax and connect with you while you have a big professional camera in their face can not be over estimated.  So in a way it emphasised to me that I’m on the right track with all the effort I put into directing and putting my clients at ease.  And all the wonderful positive feedback I get saying just that, really makes me feel like I’m getting it right.

Secondly, professional images or ‘head shots’ demand as much or more care and planning as regular portraits – there’s so much to say in one or two images, – preparation is key.  Know your brand.

And lastly, I learnt that your kids’ favourite images of you are always going to be those blinking, mid talking, funny mouth position, sticky-outy hair ones. So when it comes to branding and headshot images, they are not to be trusted behind the lens!  Seriously, I am very grateful to my 2 creative cherubs – I’m always learning & even more dedicated to making you look, and most importantly, feel your best when being photographed.
