Business owners know they represent their business and having a professional headshot is important, especially when it's on your business card, as it is for many realtors. Hiring a professional photographer will ensure that the portrait is an accurate representation of who you are. Neither looking two photoshopped nor unpolished. It's a fine line. I say I retouch people to look as they do in person when I meet them. I want them to have the same energy and for their personality to shine through. When you're in a more personal industry like real estate it's nice to have casual yet professional headshot. You want to look friendly and approachable. And being outside fits with selling houses.
