Website Photos

February 14, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

What images do you need for your website?

  1. A classic headshot: look straight at the camera, making “eye contact” with your potential client. Necessary for your “About” page, as a minimum, you can also use this same (or similar) image on your social media, on your business cards, in your email signature… and anytime someone “finds” you, they’ll recognize you.
  2. Horizontal images: your website designer will thank you. When people are looking at your site, their screen is generally “landscape” format; your images should be, too. Even on mobile devices, horizontal photos will resize to fit their screens better, rather than having to scroll a vertical image to see the whole thing. Try to keep some negative space to one side for layering text or your logo; it’s visually more appealing, even without those additions.
  3. Blog posts: brainstorm a list of potential blog topics, and consider what images would work best for each. Talking about your process? Let’s get some behind-the-scenes. New product line? Let’s highlight a few. New service? Let’s show you working with a client. Sharing a story about your grandmother’s raspberry jam? Use pix to show some… or her… or both of you working together to make some!

Using personal, custom “stock” photos showing you, your personality, your process/behind the scenes, etc., help your potential clients get to know, like, and trust you!
