I feel like the word “headshots” has a negative connotation, especially in the world of creative entrepreneurs. It brings up ideas of real estate agents and lawyers on billboards or bus benches. Maybe that’s just me. Do people still advertise on bus benches? Anyways! because headshots seem borderline outdated and impersonal, a lot of creative professionals choose to skip them altogether. Let me tell you, that’s a bad idea!
There are always a million reasons not to get new headshots. Maybe you already have some old ones, and those are good enough. Or maybe you really don’t want to step out from behind the camera and have your picture taken. Most of my year is dedicated to weddings and elopements. My couples get all of me for 100% of my work time. So I get it! It’s hard to want to take time to create photos for you. But there’s a reason I do these sessions.
I know how hard owning a business is. I know how hard it is to wear so many different hats, and take on all of the stress, and the late nights, and the travel nightmares. And what makes it all worth it, is that this is our DREAM JOB! And the only way we can keep doing our dream job is to keep getting dream clients. And the only way to get those dream clients is to market ourselves. And to do that, you need…you guessed it…headshots. So buckle up buttercup! These aren’t your grandma’s head shots! We put together an incredible setup with the most killer florals, and had the BEST time! They are meant to be empowering, true to you, and something you can proudly use to show up in your own business – and I think we did just that.
