Recently I decided it was time to refresh some of my professional profile pics. It’s a little crazy that we live in an age where refreshing one’s image or reinventing ourselves is as easy as pulling a new image from a file folder and posting it to our countless online profiles, but then again, there’s something to be said for it too.
While browsing through my folders I quickly realized that the extent of my pictures consisted of mug shot-esque looks of surprise, an array of forced goofy smiles, red-faced action shots, or portrayed a much younger version of myself. If I could realistically keep depicting myself as a fresh-faced 27 year old bride, I’d be ok with that. But that was 5 years, one fat roll and several crow’s feet ago.
As an adult, I decided that I needed adult pictures of myself. Not those kind of adult pictures…sophisticated and professional pictures that an adult would be proud to display on anything from a social media profile to a business card to a personalized mug. Luckily, my friend, Megan is a professional photographer and recommended that I schedule a professional photo shoot right away.
