Headshots and Branding Portraits

Headshots and branding portraits fill a variety of needs. From social media profile pictures to professional advertising portraits your portrait is how you show the world who you are.

What is the differences are between headshots and branding portraits? Your headshot tells the story of your brand even if you have not put much thought into what you want it to say. Branding portraits show your intentions and brand identity. Showing off your personal brand and what you stand for is what separates branded portraits from headshots.

Building Branding Portraits

When it comes to building branding portraits we start with your existing brand identity. Building your portraits to match what you're already telling the world. If you don't have an existing brand identity I can recommend some marketing experts, links to brand building articles, or can work with you to begin to identity your personal brand.

Your Personal Brand

If you've not defined your personal brand there are a few questions you can begin with.

Who are you? What do you believe in? What do you stand for? How do you want the world to see you?

These are your branding portrait questions. Answer these and you're on your way to building your brand. When you understand what you want to say I can help you say it through your portrait. This is important because you don't want portraits that contradict your brand's identity. Your personal brand is often an extension of your personality but choosing which parts are important and making sure we highlight those parts in your portrait will drive that message home to your clients.

Brand Portraits and Brand Identity

Your brand portraits and brand identity need to match. If they don't you're going to confuse your customers and potential customers. If your brand is serious you need serious portraits. You wouldn't want portraits that say, fun, adventurous, and never serious if you're a financial planner or own a funeral home. Likewise you would want them to say that if you lead tour groups, or deliver fun and light experiences. Creating your brand's identity isn't as challenging as you might be thinking it is.

As for your brand portraits we need to match the feelings and emotions your brand should invoke so your clients feel they can trust you to deliver on the promises your brand is making to them.

Are you ready to show the world who you are with portraits or headshots that match your brand identity?

Make sure you don't forget the hair and makeup. If you have trusted stylists that know how you want to look then by all means visit them before your session.

Water: The Key To Great Portraits

While hair and makeup matter - water is the key to great portraits. If you're dehydrated it shows to a surprising degree. This is why I highly encourage you to get a lot of rest and drink the proper amount of water for at least a week before your session.

Proper hydration will make you look better than anything else - I promise! But you can't just drink a bunch the day of or the day before. You need at least a week of proper hydration for your skin, eyes, and hair to show it. If you want to look your best for your headshot or branding portrait water is the key.
