A good corporate headshot offers a glimpse into who you are, what you do, and why you do it. It is a visual connection that offers people a chance to put a face to your name, and it’s incredibly important for any business or brand. There are many factors that go into a headshot portrait, from posing and lighting to angles and editing, and that’s why it’s important to make the investment in a professional if you want the absolute best results. Good images are important, and you and your business deserve them.

While headshots are intended to present a professional appearance, there is more than one way to make your headshot work. Headshots reflect your personality, your identity, and your brand. However, there is more than one use for a headshot. Headshots can be used for your resume, LinkedIn profile, company directory, an audition, or even just for fun.

Depending on how you plan to use your headshots, you will need to select a look that appeals to your audience. For instance, your company directory may require a more professional look than your LinkedIn profile, which allows for a more relaxed feel.

Lisa was fantastic!
We chose Lisa to conduct our corporate head shots, and the team and I could not be more impressed with how the photos turned out.
Lisa managed to capture all of our wonderful personalities in all of our individual and team shots, which made for a fun-filled photo shoot, with some hilarious shots mixed in, just for good fun.
Additionally, the photos were received back in less then 24 hours!
I can not thank you enough Lisa, for capturing such memorable and professional photos.
We can’t wait to work with you again in the future.

More than one look!

  • Casual and friendly style for the business owner who wants to give off an inviting and approachable look.
  • Fun, not-so-corporate style for your start-up tech company whose target audience is a more youthful crowd.
  • Photos by the beach or include some of stunning natural landscapes.

The possibilities are endless, so determine how your headshots will be used and select the look you need. No matter what you decide, be sure to let your individual personality shine through each image!

Characteristics of a great headshot.

You have booked your photo session. Now what?

How do you ensure that your headshots reflect the vibe you want, are of high quality, and will help you stand out from the crowd?

These are five characteristics of a great headshot. If you stick to these simple rules, you will leave your session with headshots you love.

  • Clean and simple – The goal of a headshot is to show who you are in a professional manner. The best way to do this is to keep your headshots clean and simple, with nothing to distract from you.
  • Confidence and approachability – Visibly showing off your personality in your headshot demonstrates self-confidence, which automatically leads others to feel confident in you as well.
  • Smile with your teeth – and your eyes! This goes without saying, but real smiles radiate a genuine vibe that will attract your audience.
  • Personality over glamour – Make sure your headshots look like you. Do not overdo it with the makeup, hair, or clothing.  Just be unapologetically you!
  • Conservative colors – By wearing conservative colors, the focus stays on you, your smile, and your personality.

Headshot session mistakes to avoid

Now that you know the characteristics that will make your headshots awesome, here are some mistakes to avoid prior to getting your headshots and during your headshot session.

Not coming prepared – You have to put in the work for a successful product. This includes having your outfit ready, your hair and makeup done, and arriving on time. Otherwise, you may feel rushed or flustered, and you will likely be unhappy with your headshots.

Not looking like yourself – A headshot is supposed to reflect who you are, so do not try to be someone that you are not. For example, wearing an outfit, shoes, or makeup that you wouldn’t normally might make you feel uncomfortable, which will show through the photos.

Fake smiles – A fake smile can give off an impression of ingenuity and lack of personality. Not sure how to get that perfect, real smile for the camera? Try bringing a friend with you to the session, or playing music that helps you feel more relaxed and comfortable.

“Statement” clothing – Headshots are about you, not your clothing. Now is not the time for a fashion show, save your statement pieces for a different time.

Choosing the wrong setting – Make sure the location of your headshot fits with the image you are trying to create. For example, an indoor headshot makes more sense for a corporate look than an outdoor headshot.
