Why You Should Invest In Professional Portraits/Head Shots

I have had a LOT of requests for professional portraits and head shots lately, which I love to shoot. There are SO many ways to use them, but I wanted to share my “Top 3.”  Maybe they will inspire you to get them done!

  • LinkedIn – Whether you are entering the job world or just want to spruce up your page, a professional portrait is sure to get you noticed.
  • Your career – When asked to speak at an event, webinar or on a panel, often you will be asked to provide your bio and photo.  This is a time when asking your mom or significant other to snap a quick iPhone photo likely won’t do.  🙂
  • Your personal website – I know many of you have a side hustle, whether its as an artist, actor, writer or blogger.  Having a professional headshot on your website or Facebook page is a must.

I also want to note that “gifting” a professional photo session is a WONDERFUL and practical thing to do for someone about to graduate from college and begin their job search.  I also sell gift cards, which makes that an easy gift 🙂 🙂

Here are a few from my latest head shot sessions that I wanted to share!




  • […] It’s not every day I get asked to take photos of the Mayor of Kansas City!  I was happy to do so – Mayor Mark Holland has been SUCH a leader in Kansas City.  Here are a few photos from our time together – you will likely see more of them in some of his upcoming campaign materials.    Thinking about having some professional portraits taken for your work/LinkedIn Profile/etc, even if you aren’t running for Mayor of your City?!  I wrote a blog post about why its worth the investment.  You can read it here!
