Realtor Headshots –

Realtor Headshots –

When this local realtor came to me with specific requirements for her new real estate agency, I was able to accommodate the specifics in my studio. I do love how agencies are realizing the importance of branding, and are promoting their agents’ personalities to their clients. In the competitive world of real estate, the connection and bond with the client is paramount and communicating that through branded photography that displays personality is the best way showcase it!

We started with the standard paramount lighted shots with plain background – these shots could be used as is or extracted for the marketing materials produced by the agency

After finishing with these standard shots, we went outside on a beautiful, sunny afternoon (who knew we would get a spring snowfall the next day) and took some shots in Jodi’s town and place of business. Jody was a good sport for letting me place her in alley ways and along the main street. As we talked I learned that many years ago, she worked in the retail business and as a model. I wasn’t surprised – the way she flashed that smile and knew how to give a slightly different angle and look in each succession of shots.

Refresh Those Headshots!

Refresh Those Headshots!

It’s time isn’t it?

Does that profile image on your LinkedIn Page really still look like you?

Or that realtor image that shows up in all your marketing materials. Would your clients recognize you, or was that three hairstyles ago? If that’s the case it’s time to update your headshots.

Remember the saying “a picture Is worth A thousand words” – overused, but there’s a reason people say it. Your image often precedes an in-person interaction or a phone call discussion with a potential client or employer.

Don’t worry.  Headshots are not the stiff and fake/posey style they used to be. They can actually be fun now and, more importantly, reflect your personality.

A good set of headshots and portraits can help advance your career or create your personal brand.

When I shoot headshots I spend time discussing the type of image you hope to present. We determine whether the simple, plain background will work or you want an “environmental” or “Lifestyle” image. That depends on you and your needs. For more information on the different type of headshots click here. No matter what type of session, we will discuss preparation, outfits, makeup and grooming and even lighting and location.

I would love to help you present your best image, contact me for more information and schedule your session today!

This is an interesting new trend in headshots. Not enough time to out and get your makeup done before your corporate headshots or presentation?

On-call makeup artists now come to your office to prepare you for your “close-up.”  Where there’s a need, there’s an app!
