It is so important to update your professional headshots at least every 2-3 years at minimum. If you are an executive that changes style frequently, I recommend doing them every year.
This is the beautiful and talented, Amy Brothers of Amy Brothers Interiors, ASID. I met Amy through the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce. Amy and I spoke for months about updating her headshots before she finally pulled the trigger. She plans on using these photos on her blog, website and social media.
Executive headshots are not always fun, mostly because we are all too hard on ourselves. As business owners, we have to give ourselves grace and make sure our clients feel connected to us. The last thing you want is a client to review your website, social media, LinkedIn to find a 10 year old headshot. Make sure your clients are able to connect with you and you don’t give them any surprises when you meet them in person.
Just like any other photography session I offer, I work with my clients closely. For professional headshots, I discuss your brand, your vision and I get a complete understanding for how you plan on using the headshots. I also help my clients determine makeup, hair, clothing and accessories. We also talk backdrops that will help bring your vision and brand to life.
My clients are never rushed and are able to decide on the headshots they want to use. Some clients pick multiple headshots for various social media platforms, business cards, advertising and websites. Each headshot plays a different role, has a different “feel” and should be used as a tool to set the tone.
