Let’s talk Professional Profile pictures

This is my friend (and part time producer) Lora. She was going to use the pic on the right for her professional profile picture…as a LAWYER (one that’s a partner at a law firm)!

Why ladies? WHY? Why are you using pictures where you have to crop out your cocktail glass, as your professional profile and business picture? And believe me, that’s exactly what Lora up there was planning to do!

Lately I’ve shown up to a few women entrepreneur businesses and a lovely lady opens the door, and I’m totally thrown off, because before we can get down to business, my mind starts spinning…is this her? Am I at the neighbors? Is this her mother? Her hair looks kinda…Damn it, how do I ask if it’s her?!

Again, WHY are you using picture from 15 years ago as your professional profile picture? When I’m looking for professional services online and everyone seems qualified and competent,  how do you think I, and everyone else narrow the choices down? Yep, we look at the profile pictures. Somehow we think we’ll get a vibe of if a person is good/trustworthy/warm/knowledgeable etc. all from a quick scan of their profile picture.

So please stop using that photo where you’re fresh faced after a hard night with the kids! And the one where someone’s arm is around your neck but you cropped the person out, is also not a good one for your professional profile picture. And the photo that you asked your kid to take where you pretend you’re smiling through gritted teeth but you were yelling at the kid to hold the phone straight…that disqualifies you as a yoga master!

I think you see my point. If not, carry on with this! I’m sure you’re a comedian and it will work out.

Otherwise consider an action plan for your professional profile picture:
– Get a professional photographer to do your professional profile pictures. (Also, if you’re online dating this is worth it)
– A professional photographer can advise on hair and makeup, and outfits, but most importantly they’ll pose you to make you look your best.  Here’s where I insert my shameless plug – I photograph profile pictures (as seen in these photos).
– If you can’t afford a professional photographer, do your makeup and hair, wear an outfit you feel fabulous in, and have someone who has an idea about taking photos, snap some of you. Snap as many as possible until you get one that says “professional awesome” and use that one!
