I really hate to have my picture made…{Palm Harbor Headshot Photographer}

Did you ever hear someone say that?  Say it yourself?  Well, it is not uncommon.  I have been in this business for over 20 years and hear it a lot from adults.  I also hear “that’s the best picture I have ever seen of myself”  a lot, after we finish a session!  Do you wonder why many people have the attitude that pictures of themselves are awful?  What is the last image you have of yourself?  Was it just an awful candid someone took at a wedding of you with your mouth full of food?  The lighting was bad, there was no forethought to posing or getting you at your best, just a grab shot.  We remember those images!  I have one recently taken of me at a convention by a “supposedly professional photographer”  where I have my mouth wide open, my posture is terrible, and I am in the middle of a gesture while I was talking to help illustrate my point, I imagine.  I was tagged in it by a friend? and I promptly untagged myself!  UGGGH!  I photographed three lovely ladies last week for professional business portraits of themselves and they were apprehensive when they came in.  Because of unsuccessful photographic attempts of themselves in the past, they were nervous.  What you see when you look in the mirror and what many people capture on pictures, is not the same!  So, you hate to have your portrait made.  My mom used to close her eyes, almost on purpose, as if to say “If I can’t see you, you can’t see me!”  Industry studies have shown that the stress level  for an adult to have their portrait made is close to the stress level of going to a dentist!  But it comes down to choosing the right photographer and having trust that they will capture the very best for you.  Here are the three ladies and my preliminary picks for them.  Enjoy!
