What to wear for business headshots

Do you like your business headshot?  Is it recent?
Does it truly capture the essence of you, your role or your business?

The internet is a great place to do background research on potential clients, job candidates or service providers. Chances are even before you wade through the text of the bio and achievements, you'll look closely at the profile photo.  A professional and flattering business headshot encourages us to read further; a dated or amateurish pic raises questions about the person's professionalism.  Yes, it's superficial and unfair and we do it all the time (whether we admit it or not).

Business headshots are an important investment. They need to be consistent with your brand so take time to consider what you want to project in your photo.  Here are five tips I wrote for a Leaders In Heels article to help you dress and pose for  natural shots you’d be proud to post anywhere on the internet.

I hope you find this helpful.
