What makes an amazing headshot? 👩🏼‍🦰

There are 5 key ingredients to a great headshot and all of them are really simple!

1. Be warm, friendly and inviting ☺️

No matter how professional you want to come across, it’s just as important to show people that you are a person, that you do have emotions and that you are approachable.

Work with your photographer to ensure a number of looks. When I’m taking headshots, I like to vary the lighting, the poses and positions my clients are in and the angles I’m shooting at.

Shooting in this way means that I rule out things which don’t work – some poses result in very harsh and serious expressions - so, I like to give you loads of variety and ensure that you have a range of images – some more approachable than others.

While in certain situations, you may want something very corporate, the place for these is not on social media – your social media posts and particularly for Facebook and Instagram, need to show you as someone your ideal clients can connect with, so don’t create too much distance between them and you.

2. Look professional 🤓

I know it sounds like I’m contradicting myself, but I’m not! You can still have a professional image without looking excessively corporate in your headshot.
