A Great First Impression

The saying goes, “you’ll never get a second chance to make a great first impression.”  This is so true for headshots.  A headshot, many times, is that first chance of meeting someone.  If your headshot is on your corporate website or small business website, people are meeting you online first before ever meeting you in person.  Don’t you want to make a great first impression?  Then, settle for no less than a professional headshot from a photographer who specializes in headshots!  Check out the following from The Association for Psychological Science, “A series of experiments by Princeton psychologists Janine Willis and Alexander Todorov reveal that…

..all it takes is a tenth of a second to form an impression of a stranger from their face,

and that longer exposures don’t significantly alter those impressions

(although they might boost your confidence in your judgments).

Interestingly, the psychologists noted that trustworthiness was one factor participants assessed most quickly.  “All the correlations between judgments made after a 1/10-second glimpse and judgments made without time constraints were high, but of all the traits, trustworthiness was the one with the highest correlation. Along with attractiveness, this was also the trait that participants were able to assess most quickly. The authors suggest, based on evolutionary psychology, that an accelerated and accurate ability to judge trustworthiness in others may have evolved as an important survival mechanism.”

A split second is all you have to make a great first impression.  Make sure your headshot gives the right first impression – your trustworthiness depends on it!

Headshots for Jamie

Jamie contacted me for updated headshots for his law practice.  He had some ideas about what he wanted for his headshots and together, we were able to create headshots that reflected those ideas.  I love it when clients can give me an idea of what they are looking for.  Everyone is unique and has their own dreams and plans for their headshots.  A jewelry designer, for example, wants something light and airy perhaps where a financial group wants dark and formal.  These are all excellent headshots but the background, clothing, and feel of the headshots need to fit the person.  I loved working with Jamie on these headshots and I hope they serve him well as a trustworthy lawyer for his practice!  All my best Jamie!
