Headshot Photo: Casual vs. The Suit

studio photographer, sycamore il, Sycamore photographer

Make your next headshot photos uniquely you by fitting your wardrobe + backdrop to your business. Professional headshots shine the light directly on you and invite people to look closer at your business. Do you want a classic all-business feel, or a less structured, more relaxed feeling to your images?

Tailor your headshots to fit you and your client community. If you’re not a suit and tie business don’t put one on for your headshot. Before choosing your wardrobe put yourself into your ideal client’s perspective and ask yourself who they are looking for to help them..

The next piece is to know where you want to put your headshot photos.

Are you looking for a few basic images to have up on your social profiles for the next year? Do you want multiple images with different expressions and color to use across different platforms, mailers, newsletters and a few standard social posts?

Answering those first two questions is important before reserving your photoshoot. It’s an investment in you and your business and you need to share these answers with your photographer so you get the images you need for your upcoming business year.

1/ Do you need a few basic headshots?

Most times we need to update our profile image or print new business cards, or add a headshot photo to LinkedIn or social site.

If you’re looking for a traditional update to your headshots, I have headshot tips for clients before meeting for their headshot session. Reserve your morning appointment, and have your new headshot retouched and on your computer by the next day.

2/ Do you want to showcase the behind-the-scenes of your business?

Let’s really show off your business + have fun doing it!

We all need a classic headshot for a recognizable look across all of our platforms. You need potential customers to recognize you when they come to your social profiles, your website, or walk into your brick and mortar shop.

However, your business also benefits from casual looks behind the curtain of your business.

A lot of influencers are using this technique today to give them ample images to share across their platforms. Those ‘brand images’ help connect with their community. You can do the same in your business! Depending on how in-depth you’d like to plan I offer Headshot Collections to fit your vision. These Collections give you images far beyond your basic headshot image.

We plan the details of the photoshoot and include both classic and business casual looks that show the ‘real + human’ side of business.

the best way to share your business on social is in a signature branding session

You add value to your product or service when you have a gallery full of images to use across your platforms in daily posts. Planning your Signature Brand Collection allows you to include your brand colors, pieces of your business, and your style.

We weave a story of your professional life with the WHY for your business. And you know we all connect with a good story. Share your story through creative headshots and branding images of your day-to-day.

  • Do you write a blog and need staple brand images to include each week?
  • Are you a massage therapist, own a gym, or have a yoga studio and need marketing images?
  • Do you own a bakery, coffee shop, boutique, Etsy shop?
  • Performing arts:: Aspiring actor, singer, musician?

Any of these professions benefit from professional headshots and a styled signature brand session. Show the professional side of your business. But don’t be afraid to reveal the casual, more community-centric side too.

The businesses that tell their story build a community of loyal customers.

We build our community face-to-face and through our online presence. Brand images share your story and the important details of your business.
