Remember when corporate headshots were all in front of a black or grey background? Although I do have a black and grey backdrop, I'm happy to report that they are collecting dust in my basement!
Does your headshot bring you joy? The way you present yourself in your headshot says a lot about the tone you set for your business. Is your brand bold, peaceful, joyful, casual, inviting, simple or serious?
Building your brand from the inside out starts with YOU. Deciding how you want to present your voice to your clients is where I come in.
If you have a large team it's great to present a cohesive front. However, that does not mean you need to be attached to a background.
Allow me to present - Similar yet Different
I love what the team at Adelman Travel Group choose to do when they brought me in for a full day of headshots. It was during a week of conferences with team members in town from all over the country. I set up in a room at the beautiful Westin Hotel and welcomed each employee for their private session, where they could sit, stand or lean for their image.
Same room, similar background, yet individualized posing to show off personalities and preferences. I heard some "I hate having my picture taken" statements and even one "I've never liked one picture of myself." My answer is always, "Well good thing I enjoy taking them so much so the energy in the room will balance out!"
The team was wonderful and we ended up having a lot of fun. I think they were surprised that the process was so easy, and this was the feedback:
"Thank you so much for all of your work on this. I heard nothing but great things from everyone who got their headshots."
"I took a look at the images and I love how they turned out. The lighting is perfect and very flattering for everyone. I think people will be very happy"
