Headshots to Refresh Your Confidence

Headshots to Refresh Your Confidence – Me Ra Koh Portraits

Mary Ellen is an amazing business woman. She was named one of the top 40 women in the travel industry working with major brands like American Express. She is a deep well of expertise, innovation and leadership.

When we first talked, she shared how her LinkedIn headshot hadn’t been updated in 10 years. Do you believe a portrait headshot can show the wisdom and confidence someone has gained in 10 years? At Me Ra Koh Portraits, we absolutely do! This was one of her favorite portraits she used to refresh her LinkedIn after the shoot.

Guess what happened next?

She was offered a dream job that takes all her expertise to a new level! Mary Ellen texted me right away and said that she felt like her refreshed headshots/branding had a direct impact on bringing her this new position! How you visually represent who you are is powerful. So why don’t more of us do it?

You captured exactly where I am at in life.

-Mary Ellen

Fears We Battle

Some of us are afraid to have an updated headshot. We wonder if the younger version of ourselves is more appealing. And without realizing it, that uncertainty eats away at our confidence. We fear we’ve gained too much weight, or maybe we just don’t feel like we’re in the right head space. Mary Ellen feared all these things, and that’s why her experience was so powerful. We got to combat and overcome all those fears together.

Radiating Who You are Today

Mary Ellen’s LinkedIn headshot from ten years ago was beautiful, but her energy was different. A decade had passed. Back then she didn’t have the settled, solid confidence she now exudes. Her ability to pivot and lead large teams is well practiced with a long list of successes. There is an anchored joy in her that is far more breathtaking then the excited, unsure joy of her earlier self. We wanted to help her radiate who she is today.

Headshots to refresh your confidence is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself.

What to Expect

When you book a Branding & Headshot photographic experience with us, fasten your seat belt for the most wonderful journey. Your special day starts with Professional Hair & Makeup (Women love their hair and makeup so much, they never want to wash their face! It’s the BEST!).

The photo shoot comes next with three wardrobe changes that we’ve strategically planned beforehand. (If you’re not sure about what to wear, we have a wardrobe consultant who can do a FaceTime Closet Look with you! Some of our clients LOVE this extra service!). A light lunch is included for you while we narrow down to your best photos.

Then comes everyone’s favorite part, your Reveal/Design session where you get to see all the Best Of and pick your favorites! This is one WONDERFUL day focused on you!

But before you even come in the studio, we start with one of our signature Discovery calls. We have a handful of thoughtful questions to ask that focus on you and/or your brand’s gifts, talents, strengths, and what you want to communicate to your clients. You only get once chance to make a first impression, and that first impression is often through a photo on social media. Does your LinkedIn headshot radiate who you are and what you do?

How We Go the Extra Mile

We also do a call with someone who knows you well. I did a call with Mary Ellen’s husband to see her through his eyes. What are the strengths he sees in her when it comes to her work? Even though they don’t work together, he still had wonderful insight. He shared how much he admires her decisiveness. She weighs the risks and makes a decision. And if things don’t work out the way she expects, she learns from those mistakes, encourages her team and moves forward.

What a Former Coworker Says

We also did a call with one of Mary Ellen former coworkers. As part of the Discovery process, we take time to call a client or someone who has worked with you. We want to know what they appreciated most about you and your services. What was their experience? All of these elements hone in the creative vision for the photo shoot even more.

Mary Ellen’s former coworker said she is the type of leader who listens to her team. She’s always open to other perspectives before making a final decision. And she also has this beautiful joy that radiates from her heart.

When Mary Ellen came to the studio for her special day, we talked about how her new headshots are going to match her robust, impressive LinkedIn profile. Clients first see the headshot, and then after they read her profile we want them to say, “That makes sense. That’s what I would expect from the confidence exuded in her photo.”

What Mary Ellen Said

“What I thought was just going to be a 10 year head shot update turned in to a real life transition event with Me Ra. I’m so pleased with how the photos turned out as she captured exactly where I’m at in life. Thank you Me Ra and Brian for all the work you put in to prepping and doing the shoot. You’re truly gifted and absolutely amazing!”
