I know from experience that having a camera pointed at you can be akin to mild torture! However a professional business portrait is so important in this digital age. Creating that one image, that first impression, that enables your prospective clients to connect with you may seem impossible, but it’s really not. Choose your photographer carefully though, as it stands to reason that you will achieve better results if you are comfortable with them.
I love helping individuals get over their fear of the camera and capturing images of themselves that they actually like and set the right tone for their online presence.
This shot is a favourite from a recent business portrait session with the lovely Helen of HM Counselling & Psychotherapy. An other image chosen by Helen from her session has been used on her website about page. This is what she has to say about the experience:
“I contacted Jennifer as I needed some rather particular profile shots for my website – as a psychotherapist it was important for me that some of the essence of ‘me’ in the therapy room came across from the pictures. Jennifer understood what I was looking for and made the whole process as painless and professional as possible and I am extremely pleased with the resulting pictures – thank you for your patient encouragement during the shoot!”
Thank you Helen, you were a joy to work with :)
