A Business Portrait is not Just a Picture.

It is your Personal Branding.

Customers want to connect with people who are industry professionals who they feel they can trust. This is why a business portrait is not just a picture. It is your personal branding.

Every industry and corporate position has a unique look and persona for their business portrait. A prime example of this is that a trial attorney would not be photographed in the same manner as a marketing representative or physician.

So when creating or updating your online presence, you need to consider how your personal brand and corporate image can enhance your website and professional bio.

Women’s Contemporary Portraiture Collection vs Traditional Headshots

What makes our Women’s Contemporary Portraiture Collection different from a traditional headshot?

The Women’s Contemporary Portraiture Collection by Michael Carr Photography features editorial and lifestyle attributes to enhance your visual persona, connect with your audience, and translate your message. Most contemporary sessions include a mixture of dramatically lit images using solid backgrounds which helps to bring focus to the subject. Some sessions include elements of simple furnishings to create a more casual and relaxed portrait image. In contrast a traditional headshot may focus on matching your head and shoulder business portrait to other images on a company website or directory page. A traditional company business portrait may require a generic lighting style that is consistent for most type of subjects versus a personalized lighting style that compliments your own features.

Women’s Contemporary Portrait sessions by Michael Carr Photography are designed to portray an individual’s confidence in front of the camera and are tailored specifically for you. Here are four tips to make your Contemporary Portrait session an incredible experience.

  1. Start with a Consultation

Each Women’s Contemporary Portrait Photography session begins with a consultation to review your session goals, where the images will be used for marketing collateral, and what format and sizes are required for final images.

  1. Plan for Your Professional Hair and Makeup

Female professionals should have their hair and make-up done by a professional hairstylist and makeup artist the day of your session. A professional makeup artist will highlight your best features and choose the right colors to compliment your outfit for your photography session. We are happy to provide recommendations upon request. Also, consider your hands as they may show in your portrait. Some clients opt to get a manicure before their session and select a clear polish or neutral color for their nails.

  1. Select Attire that Complement Your Best Features

Women’s contemporary portraits have the emphasis on you. Your clothing should reflect your professional style and the business image you want to deliver as part of your personal brand. Blouses, skirts, dresses, and jackets should be in a solid color or have a light pattern. Feel free to bring up to 3-5 clean, well-pressed outfits to your session. If you normally wear glasses, wear them in your portrait. Lastly, when it comes to jewelry, less is best. We recommend wearing pearls or diamonds for a classic and polished look.

  1. Design Your Women’s Contemporary Portrait Collection

At the end of your portrait session, you will review your images and make your selection. Women’s Contemporary Portrait sessions with multiple clothing changes are time efficient and typically completed within 45 minutes. A digital artist will edit your final images in digital enhancement software to soften puffiness under the eyes, minimize smile lines and refine the portrait.

From the final images, clients select a collection of custom framed prints to display in their office, home, and to give as gifts to loved ones.
