The importance of a good ol' fashioned headshot

When you hear the term "headshot" do you immediately imagine the chin-to-fist corny smiling pose that had its 15 minutes of fame in the 80's? A LOT has changed over the years and a headshot has become a reflection of personality rather than simply a reference of what a person looks like. 

Here are 5 reasons you should consider having a few different headshots on hand, whether you're representing a business or just yourself. 

#1 - A great headshot that truly shows your personality reminds you how you feel when you present your BEST. It's motivation... every. single. day! 

#2 - It's a way to represent your business by saying... Hi, I am a person. I'm not JUST a business -- Look, here's my face, proof that a real human being is backing up this company. I care enough to show you who I am and what I stand for! 

#3 - It reminds people to do business with you or to stay connected. Sure, this sounds odd... Why would a great headshot be connected with people reaching out to you? Well, take into consideration, when a strong image is presented whether in marketing or social media, people REMEMBER that and in turn REMEMBER you. 

#4 - Great headshots show your professionalism. Photographs created with a point-and-shoot quick camera aren't always terrible, but when they are... They're REALLY terrible. People are looking at your online presence and whether they realize it or not are making assumptions based off your portrait. Portraits of you tend to reflect you. If they're unkempt, blurry, or just not tactful, people will associate you that way as well. 

#5 - Lastly, but not leastly, (if that's even a word) its a way for you to have a quick confidence boost to know YOU are important -- I know that to be 100% true. YOU were created to be on this earth and live in this moment. That is a reason to celebrate your life. Create a memory of you that celebrates YOU, because you're worth it.
