A profile picture is an image that represents your personal or business account and creates a visual association for your brand. Nearly all online platforms and applications require a profile photo; LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Bumble, Uber, Twitter… You get the point.
So what does your current profile picture say about you? Is it engaging enough to stop a potential client? Is it professional? Are your current clients or community taking you seriously?
Because our personal or business branding is so imperative we should all consider hiring a professional to take our portrait. If you’re unsure if it is time to update your current profile photo, here’s a few questions to ask yourself:
TAKE THE HEADSHOT QUIZ!
Is my headshot/profile picture over 3 years old? YES or NO
Is my headshot/profile picture a selfie or was it taken with a cellphone? YES or NO

Does my headshot/profile picture look like me? Have I aged? Does it match my current hair color, hair style, facial hair, etc? YES or NO
