My Headshot Experience

Updated: Nov 10, 2020

I recently spent a day having professional headshots taken by Dean Birinyi, and Michel of Michel & Co. Pictures are critical to successful branding and it was about time I finally had mine done. Through my experience I can tell you two things:

  1. It's far more enjoyable than I could have anticipated

  2. There is no way, (not even with an iPhone 12) I could have had this good a photo taken with simply a phone

“I'm the first to admit I don't like taking pictures of myself.”

I was super worried when I booked my shoot. My fears were many. I didn't want my makeup done. I was scared I'd either look totally different or there would be so much make up on that you could see it in the pics. Sarah of course did a great job. I was also afraid I wouldn't like the pictures, that I wasn't photogenic enough or that I'd wake up to a bad hair day that could not be fixed in time.

but it wasn't that bad

In fact I'm as shocked to write this as you are to read it...Dean & Sara have a process, they spent time understanding my brand and what parts of my personality I wanted to showcase. They took time with wardrobe consulting, going over the shots we should take, make-up and how to smile and express myself properly in front of the camera.

We Had Quite a Bit of Fun

and at the end of the day the most important thing is that I have great photos. They are a huge part of any brand and well worth the investment. I'll be sharing several of my favorties here on my blog soon, so stay tuned.
