WHY one should get professional business portraits, and keep them updated is easy. Whether updating a business portrait, preparing for a speaking engagement, or getting your first headshot, and editorial or professional studio style portrait headshot taken, you want to put your best face forward. Project the confidence and professionalism you want to be remembered for with a headshot portrait by Anjeanette Photography, Phoenix.

Nowadays, an outdated headshot is particularly noticeable because camera quality is increasing exponentially. Consider it this way–your profile picture taken in 2004 is most likely lower quality than what you could take on your iPhone today. When a user comes to your site, it is obvious by the quality of the photo whether or not your headshot is outdated. This leads customers to one of two thoughts. Either they think that your business lacks the resources to update your headshots and improve your brand, or they think that you are lazy and lack the foresight to consider the importance of your headshot. Either way, it’s a lose-lose situation. Avoid that negative reputation altogether by simply changing your headshot every once and while to reflect new camera quality.

Your headshot makes you real in the virtual world. Yet some people continue to leave their headshot blank, or they don’t take it seriously when they do upload one. I have seen numerous headshots that actually make me want to avoid the person behind the headshot rather than create a connection with them. The best headshots are created by a professional photographer. So schedule a shoot – it’s worth the investment. Here’s some advice for making your headshot a valuable asset.

Having an updated headshot is crucial. The first that comes to mind is social media – your avatar is the first thing people see on your profile. Or, your current employer could request a headshot for their website or as part of a blog or social media post about you or written by you. Special company announcements or press releases may go out that require your headshot as well. Sending along a selfie or having your friend take a quick photo against a blank wall not only shows lack of preparation but a lack of professionalism as well. Having a high quality headshot ready to send at a moment’s notice shows you think ahead and represents who you are and your personality.

Arrowhead Family Dentistry Headshots | Meet the Staff! | Anjeanette Photography Peoria Arizona professional portraits

Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.

Had a fantastic session with Arrowhead Family Dentistry last week for Doctor's and Staff headshots! Everyone did an amazing job. I was so impressed by the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere- I usually have a bit of dental anxiety. Ok, I get a lot of dental office anxiety to the extent I get worried about even going to dentists offices! But everyone in the office was so easy going and friendly I was completely at ease.

Recently the Arrowhead Family has grown- new doctors, Drs. George and Natalia Hariri have joined Dr Grace Heir at the practice. Dr. Georige and Dr. Natalia were born and raised in Tucson, AZ and moved to the Glendale area to pursue their doctorate of dentistry degrees at Midwestern University.

These dentists all have the most gorgeous smiles, of course! Could anyone doubt it?
So glad Doctor's Natalia, George, and Grace from the Arrowhead Family Dentistry team choose Anjeanette Photography for headshots.

Nothing beats a sincere smile for making a positive impression! I was so happy to meet with Hui Wu Curtis of APS for her professional headshots a few weeks ago, her bright open smile was a perfect compliment to her customer service profession. She was getting updated pro photos to accompany a recent article she wrote on Shaping the Customer Experience (click here for article)

The immediate first impression is someone you can count on and trust, a person passionate about people and results as her LinkedIn profile says.

Later I was able to help put together a leadership team portrait session in just a few hours right in the convenience of the office.  

Anjeanette came in and did professional headshots for my entire leadership team. First wave, we had 25+ leaders and they all said they had a great time. She made the process very easy and captured everyone’s best look! The headshots all turned out absolutely wonderful and we are bringing her back to do another session for the rest of my leadership team. True professional with a great eye in capturing the best in people. Couldn’t be more pleased with the results and is a great way to compliment my team’s professional development. Thank you Anjeanette!

Do you make a positive unforgettable business impression?

Researchers out of Princeton University have found that people make judgments about such things as trustworthiness, competence, and likeability within a fraction of a second after seeing someone’s face.
— Psychology Today with News at Princeton

In fact, Princeton pschologists found that we make judgments about people within 100 milliseconds to seven seconds of meeting them. About the length of time you view a profile pictures as you scroll through the "people you may know" connection section on Linkedin.

Both Psychology Today and Donald Miller in his book Building a Storybrand have identified the importance of the ability to quickly recognize the expression on a strangers’ face and the intent- in essence, a good first impression was and still is a survival instinct!

A professional portrait that portrays the image that presents you in the best possible light is a must for creative businesses and successful entrepreneurs according to Peter Economy- a modern #professionalheadshot can immediately influence how well a business is perceived.

Invest in an image that will attract the right clients to your artistic or business endeavors! 

Make a great first impression that will take you beyond those first few seconds and on to gaining respect—and maybe even a new job or client.

Paulo | Acting Headshots Phoenix | Anjeanette Photography Professional Portraits Arizona

Your headshot is for everything, it is your calling card. It will, and should, be the cornerstone of your marketing materials: your face will literally be the face of your website, casting profiles, postcards, résumé. Your business cards and postcards should always have your headshot printed on them.

When I met up with Paulo a few months ago we had a chance to get some great acting headshots for his portfolio that expressed his style, charm, and genuine smile. Paulo’s headshot puts a face to his brand, recognizable across all media!

Having a great headshot is CRUCIAL

While the term headshot is common in the acting, real estate, book author fields for promotion- not everyone in business use a corporate portrait as a reflection of professional character although they should! It's not just for marketing- it is a deliberate choice, of the career-oriented and myself, to create a portrait designed to put more effort and significance into how your work is perceived. 

Not a cropped phone snapshot from a friends wedding, or a selfie that while nicely lit and hitting all your angles are too casual. Those do not covey the perception that you're qualified. 

Say your scrolling through a Linked In “people to discover” list, who would you hire? Not based on attractiveness- but who looks trustworthy and professionally competent? Who looks like they put significant effort into their portrait- what would be an employee or company you would trust- the selfie or the professional headshot? Its the digital age and people WILL see your photo- you can control how others regard and appreciate you.

And because I have been crafting and improving my modern headshot since 2008, I already put the “significant effort” into Modern Business Portrait Headshots so you don’t have to! Including outfit and styling suggestions, even posing and expression coaching, in a positive way to help attain career goals.

Schedule with Anjeanette Photography, Phoenix and I’ll help you present your reliable reputation. You want YOUR portrait to be a visual representation of your businesses excellent reputation. I can help.
