All of us suffer from self criticism. If you don’t then please share with all of us the secret. I know for me, when I look at myself in the mirror, I can see that half my face is smaller than the other half. I know that other people cannot see it, but I can. So when I step in front of the camera I am very aware of my face and what angle would be best to minimize my deformation :). I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Whether you feel your nose is too big, your forehead protrudes or your smile is too gummy, that’s okay. We are who we are. But should those features be what stands out the most in our headshots?
If you are an actor, then maybe. These could be the beautiful character flaws that make you stand out and book more jobs. For the rest of us, we probably want to look our best and minimize the aspects of our face that make us a feel a tad insecure.
This is why you need a professional taking your photos. As a professional headshot photographer, I know how to adjust your face in little ways to show off your natural beauty. During your session we look at the photos and talk about the changes that you would like to see. Then we take more photos. We do this process until we get it right. You end up leaving the studio with amazing headshots that you have already approved.
What happens when you have an incredible headshot? You feel beautiful. When you look at an image of yourself that doesn’t show any of those flaws that make you insecure, you suddenly become a lot more confident. And you know what happens next? Confident people book more jobs! So come on in and boost your confidence.
