A guide to understanding your natural portrait session
As someone who tends to feel a little camera shy, you’ll be all too familiar with those glossy photo profiles on social media sites – Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter.
Yet, are you happy with your photo?
This blog post was written in you in mind, so you can see what goes into a natural portrait session in London. This means you’ll understand what to expect in easy steps and have confidence in your decision to book a professional photographer.
Most working women contact me when they want their profile image to say a little more –
I publish children’s literature – I want to look professional with a welcoming smile
I run a health food website – I want to look happy, healthy and alive
I run offices throughout London – I need a professional look that isn’t too staged
Movie theatres have a lot to answer for – common consensus in films finds photographers sitting in front of the computer, hot tea in hand and still wearing out PJs after eleven. We jump out of our seats for an hour to snap, snap, snap a glamorous model or impossibly happy child.
I love to bust that myth – the truth is a little closer to home. Everyday people book photographers to capture expressive portraits that say something about who they are.
And that’s my mission – to show you how it’s done.
Don’t miss out
If you feel professional photography isn’t for you, you could be missing out on a valuable way to improve your social media profile. Updating your portrait is a fast, easy way to connect with fellow professionals, enhance your on-line reputation and feel good about your on-line identity.
