If you own a business, or even if you’re selling a product, you know you need to have photos of yourself for your website and social media. But does the thought of headshots make you cringe? Does the term headshot make you imagine a blue backdrop and a stiff pants suit? Headshots do not have to be stiff and boring.
People do judge a book by its cover.
Even if your mother told you not to, I’m sure you judge a book by its cover. If you’re scrolling through Pinterest, or Etsy, or even on Google looking for something, the photographs of that product matter to you, doesn’t it? I admit, when I’m searching for something if it is not photographed well, I assume the product is not well made.
You sell a quality service or product. Don’t let a poorly lit selfie represent you and your brand.
Photos of you should represent you and your brand.
If your brand is adventurous and outdoorsy, or girlie and frilly, or fun and athletic, there is a better way to show off who you are. You want the photos of you to go along with the brand story you are trying to tell.
A lifestyle headshot session provides you with a variety of high quality, on-brand photographs.
People love to see YOU, the person behind the brand. Put your best foot forward with a lifestyle headshot session. After your session you will have a gallery of images that you can use for your website, social media platforms, and marketing materials. Each session allows for 1-2 outfit changes giving you variety in your images to not feel like you’re showing off the same photo of yourself over and over.
Realizing you want (and need) need better product photos?
I offer a range of photography services for your business – from lifestyle headshot sessions to lifestyle product sessions. During your initial branding consultation we can determine what is right for you and your goals for your business.
Ramp up your brand story with video.
This past fall I have had the pleasure of working with Cicely of Rusted Van Photography (a Seattle based, husband-wife wedding photographer and videographer team) on several occasions. As we worked together on projects we realized how amazingly we worked together, how our styles both mesh and add to each other, making us perfect business partners. Stay tuned, because we are in the process of launching something BIG! In the meantime, if your branding needs require video, I cannot vouch for Cicely enough. Together, Cicely and I will work with you to help you tell your brand story.
For an idea of what a video here is a full length brand story video for Neyssa Lee Photography, along with a shorter video for social media.
