Professional Portraits – a.k.a. “Headshots” or “Profile Portraits”
In this blog post, you will find samples of what I consider professional profile portraits.
The images on this page represent a variety of reasons that someone would have a professional photographer take what is popularly called “headshots.” For example, to us, this is also known as profile portraits. Fanceeee, as my husband might say! 🙂 The use of this type of image ranges from use in commercial advertisements to personal social media profile photos and is only limited to the imagination! Below is just a tiny sampling of 30 years of being a professional photographer. The uses of these images range from commercial advertisements to personal social media profile photos.
Along comes the COVID-19 pandemic!
And BAM! Just like that, all over the globe, photographers are being forced to reimagine their businesses, including me. Fortunately, I am blessed to have a spouse, so that took the financial pressure off. I am also a business consultant and business coach, a web & graphic designer, as well as a marketing expert and social media marketing junkie plus, if that is not enough, I have been making non-surgical facemasks since mid-March. Trust me when I say that I have been plenty busy during these last four months even as my husband David, who is a technology director and computer teacher at a K-8 public school, who has also been home since March 13th, has just gone back to school a few days ago.
But boy, I am so ready to get back to shooting! Today, as I began to work on my different marketing plans for the upcoming holiday season and beyond, I got a jolt of a thought. And I got wicked excited!
I do miss traditional B2B and B2C in-person networking. I have been attending or hosting virtual networking events long before online networking was the must-have activity that is has become in 2020! What I have been doing for 20+ years many are now doing for their first time. Ever. Why not pair that up with my photography & teaching skills and do some online portraits? Brilliant right? Are you ready to take on this challenge? I think it will be fun!
