How will you show up in 2023

Are you the face of your business? You should be.

You are the leader of your business and your clients want to see who they are doing business with. Now more than ever, it's so important to have beautiful, current headshots. When people look your business up online or on social media, they are going to see you. The last thing you want is a headshot that does not reflect who you are. It's not just a headshot. You can tell a lot about a person by looking at the care they put into the image:

An outdated headshot. A headshot that is more than 2 years old gives the impression you are too busy, or worse, too vain to get a new headshot. You should update your headshot at least once a year. In the social media world, it is so important to control your appearance online and keep it current.

Poorly lit/bad photo. A bad photograph, even if it's current, says you don't want to invest your business. If you don't want to invest in your business, why should anyone else? Also, it gives the impression that you don't care what you look like for your business. It's the equivalent of showing up to work in pajamas.

A photo that doesn't capture the essence of you or your business. Even if you have a professional photo, if you are wearing the wrong clothes with the wrong expression on your face, and the wrong posture, it doesn't let your customers know who you really are. For example, if you are a plumber who has been in business for 30 years, you need to have a photo of yourself that people will recognize. Not being stiff in a suit or collared shirt, but relaxed and friendly in the clothes you show up to your public in. Think of your headshot as a key piece of your marketing. What is more important than you and your employees looking professional with crisp, fresh images? Professional images that are kept up to date and that are in alignment with your business goals will help to bring in clients.

Most common reason people don't update their headshot

People hate to step in front of the camera. They feel exposed. They feel they never get a good image of themselves. People tend to blame themselves and think, "I don't look good in photos." It's not your fault. A photographer should work with to find how you look your best. If you are not a professional model, you will not know how to pose. Many professionals have been the victims of the headshot photographer that sits you down and takes one image then moves on. Every person is different. Every person needs individual attention to get a good headshot and that generally doesn't happen with a cookie cutter headshot look. Every person needs posing direction and slightly different lighting. In other words, to get a great headshot that reflects you, you need more than just 10 seconds in a chair.
