Lawyers: you need a headshot that looks like you really know what you are doing. If your headshot shows any lack of confidence, your clients won't want to work with you. Remember, your headshot is the first thing that a client will see when they visit your website. If you works for yourself, you don't want your clients to think that you might not know what you're doing.
You must understand the importance of first impressions. Even if you are the greatest and most successful lawyer in the world, if someone looks at a picture of you and they don't see confidence in the shot, they will be wary of working with you. Doing a headshot session is nothing small.
The emotion and the look that you convey through your headshot is the most important thing. It doesn't matter how pretty you are or how nice your shot looks. What matters more than the clothing you wear is the confidence that comes through in your expression. Remember, a client isn't going to hire you because you look nice. They are going to hire you because they think that you know what to do to win the case for them. And if the headshot is the first thing that the client sees before they've met you in person, it will be a huge determining factor in how likely they are to contact you.
Because of this, whenever I shoot attorneys, I am very intent on making sure that the right expression comes out during the headshot session.
