Headshots are important! If you don't have current head shots you need to!
Head shots can be used across social media sites, on public profiles, as your current email photo and official company about me page.
Your headshot should look like you.
I can't stress that enough.
Why have an image up of yourself if it doesn't look like you?
When I started my business I needed updated photos because my last headshots were when my hair was shoulder length and dark auburn red.
Imagine if I had showed up to a networking event and everyone expected the woman with a curly dark red bob and there I am with dark brown waist length hair.
It would be confusing.
Don't be confusing.
Get updated head shots.
Not sure where to start? Contact Team 22 Studios because they did mine and I was thrilled with the results.
Don't put it off.
Your face is a part of your brand!
Great headshots are part of great branding! Headshots are important!

They've been using Facebook and Instagram to get to more clients and show off their work.
They have a lot of repeat clients from out of state, too.
Their studio has been successful enough recently that they have remodeled the interior and are very excited about the future of the studio.

I get asked how I measure success.
For me, success is being passionate about what I do, enjoying it, enjoying how I accomplish things and not losing myself in the process.
If you have to lose yourself and become someone you don't like in order to be successful, then is that really success?
If you had to compromise your integrity to achieve success then I don't feel like that is really successful at all.
"Success is like yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it." - Maya Angelou
