We're thrilled about our new headshots from Ashley Turner Photography.
We were struggling with nailing images that looked professional, but also really captured the fun, outgoing nature of our studio. (THE STRUGGLE IS REAL!)
This was mostly due to my (Kristen's) obsessive objective to look five pounds smaller. This made all of my headshots look very contrived and fakey...the opposite of the vibe we are going for.
When Ashley came in, we showed her our Creative Headshots Pinterest page, and took the party outside. This made a huge difference in the lighting and the flattering nature of the environment.
It also helped to take a big chill pill and try and hug myself a little bit more. I'm 32 and I've had kids, I'm not going to look like I just rolled out of bed fresh faced and loving life, so let's be real :)
The moral of the story is, love yourself, and get some headshots that really embody your brand.
As you know, consistency is KEY! Whether it's headshots, blog posts or graphics.
