With the job market the way it is today, and the limitless power of social media, having a great photo of yourself is becoming increasingly important. Everyone wants to present themselves well, whether it is on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, etc.
Self-image can have a dramatic impact on your confidence in presenting yourself, both online and in person. A professional photograph can give you a boost in both areas.
If you are considering hiring a professional photographer to have photos done, what are the first thoughts that come into your head? There could be many, you may like the idea of having your photo taken. But then you might think that you are not very photogenic, and that you might not look how you want to in the pictures. After all, if you have disliked most photos of yourself taken before these could be very common thoughts. However, all of the non-professional photos that you have seen of yourself over the years are a compilation from events and circumstances that are probably not going to show your best side. So I encourage you to disregard thoughts about yourself from those photos!
You may be thinking; “Wait, I have certain features that I don’t think will photograph well.” This photo session is going to be new, and something different. The whole idea is to conduct a collaborated effort in which the results are going to show you in a way that suits you best…sound good?
