A great headshot says a lot about you. From clothing to expression to pose, all these tiny details form the story of who you are and what your business means to you and your client. I always suggest using these tiny details to incorporate your individuality. By staying true to who you are, like-minded people will be drawn to you. When you avoid individuality in favor of “looking more professional” or how you think you should look, your headshot becomes generic and easily passed over when someone is browsing LinkedIn.
What I love about the session below is how she stays true to herself. She loves the color purple and when I see her at our networking events, she’s usually wearing purple in one shade or another. I love that she didn’t change that for photos. She is an ambassador for the World Global Network and as you can see, she faithfully wears her Helo Wellness Band. By wearing her band in her headshots, she is not just promoting it but also showing her belief in it. By choosing to smile, she comes off as friendly and approachable. By leaning in, she’s interested in you and your wellness. This is what a great headshot does. It says “I’m a purple-loving dynamic woman that’s interested in helping you live a healthy lifestyle with the help of the Helo Wellness Band.”
