You want to look like yourself in your profile pictures, but you also want to look professional for any images used for your business. Be appropriately styled for the client you wish to attract.
For instance, Carol worked regularly with those in the legal profession, so we styled her in a red “power” suit against a rich golden backdrop, pulling her hair back from her face, and posing her to look like the knowledgeable authority figure she is. Carol is also an instructor, teaching others who want to enter her field, so we also styled her in a “trustworthy” navy blue suit, let her hair down to frame her face, and posed her with a friendlier, more open demeanor. What is right for your audience?

* By the way, just for fun, we played dress up at the end of Carol’s session, putting her in a lovely lavender gown. Those images were printed for her family.
