“A stellar profile image can help you connect with potential clients and colleagues in an internet driven world."
How much more often do you remember a face, but forget a name? Linking a face to your product or service protects your brand and allows for a personal connection. Humans remember faces. It is a fact! Social Media and online video have taken the business world by storm. Your social media page is 7x more likely to be viewed with a personal profile picture. Here is your chance to up the stakes this year and beyond! Whether it be for professional profiles on social media, your website or brochures, professional photos are your opportunity to feature yourself and your business in the way you want to be seen. Allow yourself to emerge from behind your business card and put your best face forward!
In todays marketplace, small business owners are looking for branding headshots that are engaging, polished and capture their personality. Many business owners enjoy headshots and personal branding images that have an editorial, natural feel. This helps the viewer to feel a greater connection to you and makes you and your business feel approachable. People buy from people they like. It’s that simple. Professional photos can help you make an instant connection with a potential client and elevate your first impression.
Let them see YOU
The day of your session It is hard to be in front of the lens. Believe me, I feel it too! The last thing you need is to feel intimidated by the photographer and setting, when you may already be uneasy about being in front of a camera. So, your headshot portraits with me will be very simple and relaxed: just you, me and my camera. I believe in allowing your personality to show in your images. We will work together during the session to make sure you are involved in the creative process. I believe in being able to have a candid conversation and open review of the photos, during the session, to ensure the difference between a good portrait and an exceptional one.
What to expect
You will "feel" that you have chosen the very best from the moment we first meet. Creating a personalized experience is what makes me a custom photographer and why you can expect so much more throughout the entire experience with me. Each client will work closely with me to create a unique vision for their portrait session. Most photographers have a very scheduled process and do not have time to truly get to know you. Especially when it comes to headshot photography. I have a pre-session process I follow that is integral to building a client/photographer relationship and truly tailoring the session to you. It begins with an in studio complimentary consultation, where we get to know each other and customize each aspect of your branding session to YOUR preferences. I have an innovative and inspiring planning process that helps to pull together the vision for your images. The pre-planning helps to create an amazingly relaxed process because by the time we arrive to the day of your photoshoot, you are ready to go!
I offer to connect each client with a "Dream Team" on the day of their session: A personal makeup artist, hair stylist and/or the Fabulous fashion stylist, Elizabeth Neighoff. I assure you each of the artists work is nothing short of lovely.
Marketing & business images
In the modern business world, especially one in which social media has become an integral component to marketing and success, a professionally photographed image is an invaluable tool for selling your business. Professionals can no longer afford to ignore the power of the internet. In a sense, it is the new "first hand shake" or "cold call", as well as your means of following up and staying connected to potential clients, current clients, customers and colleagues. As a business owner myself, I understand the importance of setting yourself apart in a competitive marketplace. Your marketing, whether it be your website, brochures, etc, are essential to visually demonstrating to a potential customer why they should choose you. If a customer sees that you are willing to invest in yourself and your business, it often translates to establishing credibility and trust that you will also value them. As well, it demonstrates your attention to quality and detail. If you want to attract the right customers, quality professional photography can elevate the face of your business in our market and open the door to beginning a relationship with a potential customer.
