5-Star Review for Professional Headshots from Genoveva Mercado

Vibrant, charming, and down to earth…those three attributes come to mind whenever we think of Genoveva! We had the privilege of photographing this gal for her feature in 425 Magazine as she was recognized as one of their Women To Watch, an amazing testament to Genoveva’s innovative attitude and approachable nature.

And as if we couldn’t love her enough, she wrote Studio B Portraits a fabulously kind 5 Star Yelp review - keep scrolling to check it out!

Whether it be headshots or photos representing your brand, it is so important that your true self is captured on camera. However, if you’re anything like me and millions of others, being in front of a camera makes you want to curl up in a ball and forget that you ever tried. NOT WITH BROOKE! As soon as I arrived in the studio, her team welcomed me with the warmest of smiles and got me set up in my own little green room (I felt like a celebrity!) Stepping on “set” definitely gave me a wave of nerves and jitters, but as Brooke put on the music and started directing me, I immediately felt comfort setting in. As we were shooting, she was asking questions about me and getting to know who I was. As she was doing this, she was able to capture my true self. The funny facial expressions, the genuine smiles, and of course the belly laughs, Brooke makes you feel like you’ve been friends forever all while maintaining a very professional edge In Brooke’s hands I felt beautiful, empowered, and wholeheartedly myself. I would shoot with her over and over and over again!
— Genoveva Mercado

And can we just say that we are feeling MAJORLY inspired by Genoveva’s cutting-edge fashion sense. She is taking business professional to a new level and we are here for it! Bold color never looked so good!.

Three Great Reasons to Update Your Personal Branding

Reason One: You look different.

Dramatic style changes that look decidedly different than your previous profile pictures means it’s time to update your professional branding images. For women this can be a fresh cut or new color and for men, maybe it’s facial hair from Movember that is making a permanent residence on your mug. No matter the change, the person that walks in the door needs to be the same one they saw online because real talk… clients are going to Google you. Which leads us to…

Reason Two: Clients are going to Google you

Today’s savvy consumer is going to Google you and when they do, you want to make certain that your branding is on point. Just because you didn’t grow up with social media does not make it any less important that you understand it’s place in modern business. Profile pictures (even on private profiles are all public so making sure your brand fits the platform is key. (ie LinkedIn is more formal, Facebook is casual, blogging and Twitter are a place to showcase personality)

Reason Three: You want to elevate in your career.

The position that you would like to career path into can start with with personal branding. Leveling up is not just a mental shift and carefully crafted success within your current role. When it’s time to deliver the message that you are ready for the next step - nothing says “I’m the person for the job” like a great headshot. (After all, a picture is worth a thousand words rights?) When we are creating personal branding images for you, we’ll talk about intent, messaging and what you would like to communicate with them. Approachable? Reliable? Serious yet friendly and someone you’d to give a seat at the table? We can do that.

Ready to Level Up on LinkedIn in the New Year? Be sure you don't make these mistakes.

It’s the New Year and for a lot of business professionals- resolutions and fresh starts are at the top of your 2019 list — specifically using LinkedIn to level up to the next stage of your career. My friend Adam sent me this great article 9 mistakes you're making on LinkedIn that are putting off recruiters and making it harder to find a job and I thought sharing it might help you kick things off in the right direction.

Pictured here:  Chief People Officer Tammy Perkins  is another unbelievable Seattle-based resource for all things Human Resources, culture, hiring and leadership… and might we say a personal branding rockstar.

In an article about “nine mistakes” of course there were 8 others of note but as a professional photographer the one that jumped out immediately was “Your Photo is Unprofessional”

"Don't ever expect a recruiter to represent you if you cannot positively and professionally represent yourself on LinkedIn. — If your LinkedIn profile is bare and your picture looks like it's cropped from a group photo from a family wedding, a recruiter will pass you up,"
