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,"


Ready to refresh your personal branding and headshot? We’d love to learn more about you and get you set up with a headshot portrait session.

The Business of People...Your People

Anyone that has started their own business learns very quickly that no matter what they sell or what service they provide… they are actually in the “people” business. And let’s be honest, the most important people to focus on when you are aiming for excellence is your own employees. You take care of them, and they take care of… well, everything..including your awesome clients! From being featured on your website, business cards, publications, and countless other ways, images of your team are important for speaking to your professional brand and the values of your company.

Two things to ask yourself to make a killer first impression

Have you ever played the "First Impressions Game"?  You know, the one where you get to proudly say your intuition was spot on or where you have to sheepishly admit you were wrong about someone.  (It's okay, you can admit you've been the person in the second category - no judgment zone! hehe)

In today's internet saturated world, it is likely that your first impression happens when someone visits your LinkedIn profile, checks out your Facebook page, finds you on Match or just enthusiastically swipes right, which makes the power of your professional headshot even more important than ever.

Keep reading for TWO THINGS TO ASK YOURSELF when preparing for your Portfolio Session that will help you make a killer first impression, land your dream job, and have your friends rave about your new profile picture on social media (all in a day's work).

No. 01 = "What do I want my audience to know about me from my portrait?"  This is one of the first questions we will ask you when you come into the Studio.  It dives into the realm of who are you and what do you want others to believe about you.  Answering this not only gives you a direction for the photo session, but it also allows us to create portrait sets that reflect your goal.  For example, Branden was going for the Dos Equis look for his portfolio session - intriguing and approachable.  He definitely nailed the "most interesting man in the world" vibe!

Yeik_online dating studio portraits.jpg

No. 02 = Someone witty and wise once said to "dress how you want to be addressed."  Thinking about this immediately after question #1 lets you line up your wardrobe with your goals for your portrait session.  We love the way Branden brought two variations of suits and rocked them with confidence.  (Also shout out to a good custom tailored suit piece!)  Another good move on Branden's part was to incorporate a casual look in addition to his professional attire; this showcased his more everyday, lifestyle side of who he is, which simply gave him more variety in imagery.
