A professional headshot can help you stand out among the crowd of candidates on LinkedIn or other job search platforms.

Having a good headshot is just as important as keeping your resume up to date. Make the most of your first impression by displaying your face in the best light possible with a professional headshot.

Polishing your professional image in company is not only rewarding, but it is also a definite way to achieve your objectives.

A quality headshot demonstrates your professionalism. Potential clients, investors, collaborators, and others who do not know you personally are more likely to agree to that first meeting if you appear professional.

Before meeting you, a decent headshot provides people an idea of your personality. A kind smile conveys approachability.

A solemn expression conveys determination. Make your facial expressions reflect your individuality.

A quality professional headshot promote yourself in the most best way possible. 

Investing a high-quality, professionally photographed headshot is an investment in your personal brand.

It portrays you at your finest, as you would like prospective clients to see you. Many of us do not have a natural ability to be photographed.

As a result, amateur photography might make you seem nothing like you do in person...and certainly not your best. A professional photographer specializing in headshots.

Invest in yourself, as it could be the most profitable investment you've ever made. 



Portraits are one of the absolute best ways for you to present your image to the public.

Professional headshots are no longer reserved for top executives.

Everyone requires one. If you don't already have one, I recommend finding a good headshot photographer and crossing it off your "to do" list.

Your professionalism and unique personality will come through with a beautiful headshot, opening the door to new opportunities and new business.

Are you making a change in your career, and you need a new corporate headshot to look more professional? TerrificShot Studio Headshots Photography™ can help you to update your LinkedIn photo, or any social media images so that you can look like an expert in your industry.

How to Use Headshots to Develop Your Personal Brand

From developing distinctive social media profiles to customizing business cards, headshots can assist you in developing a more consistent, memorable, and authentic brand. So, how do you go about incorporating headshots into your brand?

Select one image that you intend to utilize regularly throughout your entire internet presence. This will contribute to your brand becoming more remembered, trustworthy, and identifiable. After you've decided on a photo, you can begin incorporating it into your internet presence. 

Here are some ideas for how to put your headshots to use:

Business Cards - A professional headshot on your business card will aid with recall.
Social Media - Your image can be used on all of your social media profiles. LinkedIn is ideal for entrepreneurs and business professionals, whereas Facebook and Instagram are ideal for lifestyle entrepreneurs and creatives.
e-books / collateral marketing – High-quality headshots integrate smoothly into digital and print marketing collateral, such as brochures, direct mail, eBooks, and online advertisements.
Email Signatures - A headshot quickly identifies and makes an email signature more memorable.
Author Profiles - If you're guest blogging, a professional headshot will lend credibility to your writing.

Noor  Noor_headshotNoor_headshot I decided last minute on taking business photo headshots. The photographer offered me an availability within two hours. When I arrived, he was quick at adding suggestions on straightening my suit to avoid wrinkles in the image and recommended background colors I highly recommend if you're looking for a great business headshot!

Philip_headshotPhilip_headshot For someone who is awkward with taking photos, The photographer was exactly who I needed to make this process painless and in fact enjoyable! He was great with guiding you with the posing, attentive to listen to your preference, and provided feedbacks on photo selection.

key point Corporate headshot Womankey point Corporate headshot Woman Well organized and easy to book, both in studio and at our Palo Alto  office. The photographer was on time, professional, and really easy and fun to work with. The photographer had photo gallery link for us later on the same day, and edited pictures were ready just two days later. Actually, we loved most of the pictures, so ended up buying the whole gallery anyways. Already bragged about the photo session and had a slide show with our friends.

What if I'm NOT a photogenic person ? This was a frequent remark. During the session, we will assist you in being YOURSELF! When you stop worrying about how you look, you are at your most attractive.


How do I choose a Portrait photographer ? Liking the photographer's work is only 50% as important as liking and TRUSTING the photographer.  There are big chances you are not a professional model and have no clue what to do in front of a lens. It’s the photographers responsibility to guide you towards the shots you need.
Please give us a call and just take the time to have a conversation on the phone. At TerrificShot Studio Photography, we offer FREE consultation. Ask any questions. Get a feel for who we are, and how we work. 


I don't know nothing about posing. Will you direct me?  That is precisely what sets us apart from the rest of the Menlo Park headshot photographers. Technical camera/lightning, we feel, accounts for 10% of the job. The photographer's goal is to provide instructions on what to do in front of the camera and to create an atmosphere in which you feel safe. It is NOT a natural sensation to have your photo taken. We will discuss a variety of topics during the session.

Do you provide retouching? The most important is to get your best face expression that emphasizes your credibility during the session. Next, all minor imperfections such as blemish, wrinkles and so on... can be taken care with a few clicks of mouse under photoshop! Keep in mind, the best retouching is when you look natural in the picture. We will discuss specific editing requests concerns with you during the session.


How long will it take to get my final images?  Right after the session, the same day, you get your photos proofing gallery via email and text in order for you to pick your images. Once we get your selection, it takes only ONE day.  In fact, you can get your final images the SAME DAY.  Of course, You can provide your feedback on the edited photos and we would be happy to edit more if needed. The final images will be delivered via email or download link.
