Why you Need to Invest in Professional Headshots and Personal Branding Portraits

Why a Selfie Just Isn't Good Enough for Your Business

In today’s digital day and age, anybody with a camera phone has the ability to take their own professional headshots, right? What’s wrong with simply standing in front of a white wall and snapping a quick selfie to post to your professional page? Why on earth would you pay good money for professional headshots? Glad you asked! I’ll tell you why:

Your corporate headshot is the first thing your customers see when researching you online. It is your logo. Your personal brand. It reflects not just what you look like, but how you value yourself. Do you care enough about yourself and your company to invest in top-quality headshots?

A picture is worth a thousand words, and if the first picture your customers and clients see of you is a low-quality headshot, they will associate that poor quality with you and your product or company.

If you aren’t willing to invest money in yourself or your company, then why would your clients? Personal and corporate branding is critical to your success. If you cut corners on your headshots in order to save a little money, your customers will notice and your brand and your company will suffer.

Hiring a professional photographer will guarantee that the first picture your potential clients see of you will be your best. Headshots determine your brand. They tell a story. Here at Kat Squibb Photography, our professionals work one and one with you to pinpoint exactly what story you want your headshot to tell. We know what kind of wardrobe will best suit your goals, which accessories to add, and what poses work best to both flatter you and to tell your personal and professional story. Every individual has a unique essence and a unique story to tell. Our professionals are trained to capture this and allow your clients to see it as well. Let us help you to let your personality shine and to elevate your brand.

Invest in business. Invest in yourself. You’re worth it!

 

Harrisburg Personal Branding and Headshot Photography for an Aspiring Model

OMG Have you ever seen such gorgeous red hair in your life?!?!? When Kacey walked into my studio from Carolina Talent, stylist Elisha and I just KNEW we had to get crazy with that hair and makeup for her headshots! Kacey was a blast to work with and I'm obsessed with every branding image we took of her! We decided to shoot some edgy headshots and fashion portraits of her for her modeling and acting portfolio, as well as have some fun with gold flakes and dramatic lighting! Model or not, I think every woman should step out of the box once in a while and try some personal branding portraits that are fun and edgy!!

Lancaster Personal Branding for Hypnotist and Stress Relief Coach: Jess Bartram

Meet Jessica. Wife, mother, military spouse, and the gorgeous woman behind Fayetteville Hypnosis and Kids Who Meditate.  Jess is a board-certified hypnotist, stress relief coach, and an amazing mom of two! Jess wanted to break the stigma of what people think of when they hear the word "hypnotist" and show her fun, approachable, and professional side through personal branding portraits. I love working with headshot clients who KNOW that they need so much more than a headshot. They want their clients to feel like they know them and communicate with them in an authentic way.  When Jess talks about being a hypnotist and coach, you just can see her light up... she is so passionate about her work and clients and I am so excited to help create portraits that match her personality!

Lancaster Headshots for Interior Designer Alexandria Oates of AO Home

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the phenomenal interior designer and home stager, Alexandria Oates at her stylish pad in Pinehurst, North Carolina before my relocating to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Alex and I met as military spouses at Fort Bragg and we hit it off immediately! Alex is the face behind AO Home: a lifestyle firm specializing in creating and celebrating beautiful spaces. Whether you need help staging your home or listing to sell, organizing your abode to create balance, or designing your holiday home decor, she work closely with you to create your vision! 

We started with hair & makeup styling, followed by a tour of her beautiful home decorated for the holidays to choose the perfect scenes to set her in. Alex wanted some beautiful and approachable headshots that really captured her style and outgoing personality! Alex's dog/fur-child Piper had to get in on the action as well!

Check her out on facebook at AO Home !
