In February, I attended the inspiring ClickAway Conference in Dana Point, California. I made friends and recklessly flew my drone far, far away (I got it back), and I learned tons of exciting things that I could instantly apply to my business.
One of them was the concept of the “Not-So-Corporate Headshot” by Sarah Deragon where she offers casual & fun headshot sessions designed to not only get a great shot for work, but also a great new profile photo! It’s the complete opposite of stuffy, sit-there-and-don’t-move-and-smile-awkwardly headshots, and it’s great.
Everyone deserves a photo of themselves that they love, and this is a great way to get it without a lot of pressure.
I instantly adopted her idea (she shared so much!), and am so glad I did! It’s like the Universe knew I was supposed to let go of traditional corporate headshots and embrace this new lighthearted style because right away I got emails asking for this exact thing - before I had even advertised it!
I call mine the “Work ‘n’ Play” Headshot. I thought about calling it the Mullet Session - business in the front, party int the back! haha! But then I vetoed it.
So, here’s one of my first Work ‘n’ Play sessions with the adorable lady! I think she ought to find a job AND some good dates, don’t you?!
