The Power of Great Headshots

Is your headshot hurting your business opportunities?

In recent studies, up to 90% of human resources people say they check out social media profiles, especially LinkedIn and Facebook, before inviting a candidate in for an interview. This means the wrong headshot can kill your chances of even talking on the phone stone-dead. Is your headshot killing your opportunities for job offers before you even get the opportunity to interview? –

In a great article by Martin Yates, he states the top 5 questions you should be asking yourself about your headshot and the message you are sending to potential employers.

Every Picture Tells a Story

Like it or not, your headshot tells a story, so take a look at yours to see if it is telling the story you want it to tell.

Are You Trying to Get Hired or Dated?

Make sure that your headshot shows a difference.  The image you use on should not be the same that is on Linkedin.

Can You Get Away With a DIY Headshot?

I look frightening in most photographs. It’s not that I look exactly like a creature from the crypt, it’s just that I’m naturally shy and a casual snapshot will usually catch me looking terrified.

We all look better relaxed and smiling, and the beauty of digital cameras is that the shooter can keep shooting until you relax. While you want to come across looking like a friendly professional, the headshot doesn’t have to be taken by a professional. Because we almost all need new headshots for our professional lives, a headshot photography partner shouldn’t be that difficult to find.

Summer Is the Best Time to Upgrade Your Headshot

Summer is the best time to upgrade your social media headshots. You look happier and more relaxed because it’s summer, and for paler skins any kind of tan makes you look healthier.

Your Headshot & Headline

You have just these 120 characters to say who you are, so your headline should include the Target Job Title from your primary resume and the keywords that most succinctly capture what you do. You will then have about ten words with which to describe your key skills.

Family Pictures on Vacation

why it’s such a great idea

Family Pictures on Vacation

Why are family pictures on vacation such a great idea? Every family goes through the dilemma “where are we going to have pictures done this year?”. Whether you live near a coast and your tired of the beach or you live inland near amazing mountains or wide open fields, everyone gets tired of their surroundings. What better way to utilize new surrounds while vacationing then having a family session done. You’ll always remember the new memories made on that trip and the fun your family had while looking back at those pictures. This family did just that! We were contacted by this awesome family wanting to do a laid back family session on the beach while they were in town. There are so many reasons to do family pictures on vacation, the best one is new surroundings. You have a brand new gorgeous back drop that you can use. For this session we took to Fort Myers Beach, Florida. Right before sunset made for a great sky full of colors. Another great reason for doing family pictures on vacation, is you get a new experience together. You get to explore a new place and chances are your photographer knows of the best locations that visitors normally don’t know about. You will always have these memories of doing this session with your family and will have them captured in pictures forever. Its best to start planning as soon as you know when your vacation dates will be so your photographer can start planning locations and good times of the day for great light and colors in the sky. Usually during peak season photographers are pretty busy with weddings and events going on, so its best to book ahead for that reason also. We had a blast with this session, great weather, great skies and a great family!
