HEADSHOTS VS PERSONAL BRANDING: WHICH ONE IS FOR YOU?

Hello again and thanks for stopping by!

As a photographer, I am very passionate about helping my clients choose the best service for them. I want each person who steps in my studio to feel as special as they are, and get the most from their photographs. That is why I offer consultations, design services, and top quality products. Keeping in the theme of April’s Headshot Special, I wanted to break down a common question my clients ask, “What’s the difference between a headshot and personal branding?” Let’s break it down together!

First, I’ll start off with the classic headshot. I like to describe this as my basic, entry- level package. A good headshot will leave the impression that you take your profession seriously. My goal with each headshot is to make you look like a polished up version of yourself. The goal is to create a professional image that captures a glimpse into your personality so we can attract your ideal client.

HEADSHOT’S ARE PERFECT FOR. . .

  1. PRO’S ON THE GO

    You can squeeze this in on your lunch break! This session is designed to get the job done as efficiently as possible! Once you arrive at the studio, we can have your perfect image shot, chosen, and edited in under an hour. You can go back to work, and expect to have your photo delivered to you that evening when you get home.

  2. THE NEWBIE

    Whenever you are starting a new position at work or transitioning into a new job, one of the best things you can do for yourself is getting a phenomenal picture to use for your business card, website, or LinkedIn. Having a picture you are proud of makes you feel confident. Sometimes we all need a little boost to our ego or a reminder of who we are and what we can accomplish. The fact is that people want to see who they are working with, and having photo where you look professional and confident attracts the right people your way. So if you are just starting out or want to dip your toes into the world of Personal Branding a headshot is perfect for you.

  3. EXPERT’S WHO WANT A BREAK

    We are all constantly spinning our wheels trying to get our work done, but sometimes we just want to trust someone else to accomplish something on our to do list. As a small business owner, I understand what it means to hustle and that’s why I take all the heavy lifting out of getting a headshot. The only thing you have to do is show up! Between the posing, clothing options, guidance, let someone else have your back.

PERSONAL BRANDING IS PERFECT FOR. . .

  1. PEOPLE WHO LOOOOVE CHOICES

    Personal Branding is all about creating a collection of images that represent your brand, or who you are as a person. There are so many different ways of marketing oneself! There is simply no reason to use the same image over and over again. That’s why when you upgrade to a Personal Branding photo shoot you get the royal treatment. A complimentary consultation is scheduled where we go over your goals and uses for the images. You’ll receive my style guide to look your best in front of the camera, and a 3-4 hour session with multiple looks to cover each facet of your brand. On your reveal day you’ll walk away with a complete collection full of images you can’t wait to use!

  2. THE MULTI-TASKER

    You get so much freedom and flexibility to make your session what you need. If you are a working mom who needs to update your professional profile images, but want to add in beautiful portraits with your family at the end, you can do both! This is your moment to piece together a custom photo shoot that caters to your needs as a professional and mother. You’ve already done the work to schedule a photo shoot, so let’s make the most out of it and share it with people you love.

  3. THE SMALL BUSINESS OWNER/ ORGANIZATIONS

    I know how hard it can be to create content, make sure it is cohesive, and keep up with all the other aspects of your business. That’s why I offer Branding sessions to local businesses in the West Virginia area. These can include everything from short videos, updated headshot’s for your corporate group, and pictures highlighting your services and facilities. I have a soft spot in my heart for a small business owner, and I love getting to help people achieve the pictures and branding they’ve dreamed of!

Here is perfect example of having a cohesive group of images for an organization.I took these images of the pastors at Mount Calvary Baptist church and think they turned out great!

I hope you found yourself in one of these categories above. My studio offers so many solutions to the professionals in Charleston, West Virginia. There is no reason not to have an image of yourself that really makes you say, “WOW. That’s ME.” I am passionate about making people feel confident in front of the camera and delivering images that make them feel great. No matter what industry you work in show people you take yourself seriously and strive to be professional by investing in a professional headshot. Remember what I always say, “Make your first impression, a LASTING ONE.”

I’ll be back next week with my top 3 reasons to get a headshot!
