If you are active in business, regardless of whether you are working for a company or own a business, having a professional corporate headshot is crucial. At every stage of your career or business, think about your profile picture as a marketing tool or asset. It is an essential part of your branding package.
Think about it! Let’s say that you have three candidates with same qualifications applying for a position in your company. As a decision maker, whom would you prefer to hire? Candidate A without an image on LinkedIn; Candidate B with a blurry image; Candidate C with the professional image? Of course, you will choose Candidate C, because tomorrow when he/she is representing your company, their professional presentation will have a positive impact on your business.
That all being said, I don’t understand why some people on LinkedIn don’t have a profile photo. Especially today when anyone with the smartphone can easily snap one.
To be totally honest, without a photo, you look like a spammer or stalker, and we don’t wish to communicate with a wall. When you don’t display your photo on your business profile or website, you are withholding information about yourself which implies that you are hiding. When you think about it, there is no reason not to have a professional photo on LinkedIn.
Let me share some reasons why you should hire a professional photographer to take your headshots. LinkedIn profiles with professional headshots get 31 times more profile views. LinkedIn profiles with photos get 14 times more profile views LinkedIn profiles with photos get 36 times more messages. A professional image will enhance your website by giving it a more professional look.
It adds a personal touch to your business With unique portrait photography, you could say so much about yourself.
A professional headshot builds credibility. Get your headshots as soon as possible, because you never know when you are going to need them.
It’s 2020─everyone should have a great looking headshot. Finally, you deserve it!

After 20 years’ experience in the photography industry, and becoming a parent, here’s why we think it’s important for families to have professional images taken.
We have been heard many reasons why families have their portraits taken. For some it’s tradition, for others it’s for gifts. Everyone has their reasons, but after creating our own little family and having photo sessions every year, here we’re come up with 10 reasons why EVERY household should get on board with family photography. If you’re unsure about whether to book a session, read on and I guarantee you’ll find your reasons why!
Sessions are fun for kids and parents!
Gone are the days of the stiff, staged portrait, at least where our studio is concerned! We all about kids and parents having fun – and capturing exactly that. We don’t want to produce static images of you sat on a chair with your arms on each other’s shoulders. Who wants a picture of their child with a vacant expression, anyway? We want to see your kids in hysterical laughter after being tickled by mum and dad! we’ve not had one family tell us a shoot was boring, and seeing how sassy kids can get when they warm to the camera is amazing! After leaving our studio you’ll not only leave with striking images, you’ll also leave with fond memories of the actual session.
Capture special moments
Life passes by so quickly that you sometimes forget to stop and appreciate how your child looks at you, or how you look at your child. During a session with us, we never stop shooting. we’re always looking for “that shot” where dad is looking at his daughter with so much pride he could burst, or when mum is looking at her son with eyes full of love. Capturing the relationships between growing siblings is also important. Watching them learn from each other, building their own little personalities and making those funny expressions. Candid images are so significant in remembering the early days of life and we’re always on the lookout for those special micro-moments for parents to cherish.
“They grow so quick!”
We definitely not the first parent to get emotional when their tiny little baby moves up a clothes size, crawls for the first time, or says their first word we used to think the phrase “they grow so fast”, but now we fully appreciate how important it is to document each little milestone because they never come back around. Believe it or not, your kids will grow up, move away and become “too cool” to have pictures with their family. They’ll be busy traveling, going to university and moving out with friends and partners to make families of their own. So make the decision now that you won’t regret it later.
No matter how old your child is when they drop in for their session, there will always be something new they have learned or a funny expression they’ve been doing recently. Whatever it may be, if we witness it, we’ll shoot it! And if this does happen, it’s a picture to cherish. Without it, the memory might have been forgotten. No matter how insignificant something may seem, we promise it will make you smile in years to come when you look back.
Get the family together
It’s not just parents and children that can come in for a session, we fully encourage you to invite grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins – even godparents! A photoshoot is a beautiful excuse to get everyone together, as so many family members move away, get swallowed up by busy jobs and fast-paced lifestyles. Why not put all that aside, set a date and get everyone together to create new memories for you to look back on in years to come?
Give them as a gift
If you do decide to get everyone together for your shoot, or even if it’s just a few of you, it’s such a lovely idea to give the images as gifts to the rest of the family. The smiles on their faces as they receive their beautiful picture will be a gift in itself. Not only can the images make a great present – so can a family session. Lots of families put it off when they become too busy or when life gets in the way. So if you know someone who hasn’t had a shoot in a while, or ever, why not buy them a voucher and give them that extra nudge to create some stunning memories and images?
Brighten up your house
We all take a few pictures on our smartphones, or, in my case, hundreds! But as much as we love our phone snaps, and as good as they may look on the screen, they don’t compare to the luxury feel of a professional image hanging on your wall. we strive to produce the highest quality images we can, which will last forever. Professional shots aren’t just ‘pictures,’ they are pieces of art you can hang proudly.
Parents are always behind the camera
We can’t be the only mum/dad who gets stuck behind the camera. Let professional photographer help you with your photo shooting you’ll feel so refreshing to know that the responsibility was in the hands of a professional who knew what they were doing. Let you worry about whether the kids are smiling, or if you are blinking, or if it’s your best angle, and you’ll end up loving every shot.
“I hate having my picture taken!”
If we had ten ringgit for every time someone said this to us, we’re very rich! One of the main reasons why people don’t like having their picture taken is the person behind the camera. Professional photographers know what they’re doing, know how to make you feel comfortable, and know-how to ease that awkward pose, making you laugh to get a natural smile. Every single person who walks into our studio with caution or nervousness walks out with a completely different mind-set. Through a shoot, they become more confident in themselves, especially when they see their pictures. Check out our testimonials page if you don’t believe us!
Photos can live longer than you do
Who else loves looking through childhood snaps? Pictures of their mums with 80s perms, grandparents, and great-great-grandparents you sadly never met. What better keepsake to pass down to your future children, grandchildren even great-grandchildren than high-quality digital photos that will last forever?
Life’s too short to NOT get them done
Let’s be real, life goes on and unfortunate things happen, so stop saying “we’ll do it next year,” “we’re too busy” or “we’ll get round to it.” Just book! You never know what’s around the corner, and you don’t want to miss out on getting a beautiful family portrait while you can. At the risk of ending on a morbid note, this is such an important one, if not the most important.
If you’ve got to the end of this post and still don’t understand why you should book a session, then we’re lost for words! There are so many reasons why pictures are important, we wouldn’t have based our career on it if we didn’t believe it ourselves. We could list a thousand more reasons but if for whatever reason you’re still unsure, feel free to reach out and maybe we can put any concerns you have at ease. If we’re changed your mind and persuaded you to book a session, then we look forward to meeting you!
If you’ve had a family session in the past, let us know what made you do it, and how you feel looking back at your pictures!
Many women say they feel their best during pregnancy. Others struggle with health and body issues. Whether or not you love how you look, a professional photography session will make you feel beautiful.
Freeze a moment in time
A new baby brings many changes. Life as you know it will never be the same. So, take some time to capture the way things are right now. It’s probably been a while since you had any family photos taken. This is the perfect opportunity to get up-to-date images of your family before it is altered.
They Create Memories That Will Be Forever Etched in Our Minds
In some ways, pregnancy can be the calm before the storm of parenting. Surprisingly, many women miss being pregnant, especially when they are knee-deep in motherhood and trying hard not to crack under pressure. These photos can help you remember how your child changed your life forever. You can also share these photos with your children and show how you really looked while they were in your tummy.
Capture the anticipation
Pregnancy is such an exciting time. Down the road, you might forget what it felt like to be expecting. Capture those emotions so you can look back on them with fondness.
A maternity photo session isn’t just about the expectant mom and dad. If you have other children, let them be part of the fun. They may be excited or struggling with the idea of a new addition to the family.
Contrary to what many believe, maternity portrait photography isn’t always expensive. Contact us to learn more about maternity portraits in Johor Bahru.
