One of my latest Charlotte headshots session was with Don K! On a lovely evening in March, we worked together to refresh his personal brand with updated headshots.
Don K is a software developer in the Charlotte, NC area. His personal brand colors are soft blue and gray, which are great for communicating his trustworthiness and good work ethic! I chose earthy backgrounds to intentionally communicate other aspects of his personal brand -namely his down-to-earth and friendly personality.
Because all that Don K needs to do his job is his laptop, glasses, and Wi-Fi, choosing the right props for his branding session was easy!
Quality and current headshots are an important part of making a positive online impression. Using misleading headshots (dated, not sharp, badly lit, etc.) can create a sense of distrust in someone who encounters your personal brand. Along the same lines, quality headshots lend your personal brand credibility and professionalism.
As a rule of thumb, I recommend that entrepreneurs update their headshots annually and that corporate employees update their headshots every other year! Of course, if you are an entrepreneur who changes up your look often (the way I do), you may want to refresh your headshots twice a year.
This short and sweet branding photo shoot lasted only 45 minutes, included 4 distinct locations along the Little Sugar Creek Greenway, and resulted in a nice gallery of 18 finished images.
Everyone deserves quality, professional headshots that help them put their best foot forward!
