Are you wondering when should you update your headshot?

Your headshot is one of the most important tools you have for making a first impression.

It’s the first thing people will see when they visit your website, LinkedIn profile, or social media pages, so it’s important to make sure it’s up-to-date and represents the most fabulous version of yourself.

And not something that makes you inwardly cringe.

If it has been a few years since you last had photos done, or you are using a selfie to show the world your face – that is a good indication that it’s time to get in front of the camera again.

Christina, the rockstar behind Amaken Your Goddess and The Goddess Loft is showing us how it’s done in today’s blog post.

Mama. Coach. Healer. Spiritual Community. Founder.

These are just a few of the titles that Christina is honored to hold as part of the beautiful empire she is building.

She explains “I started my candle business during Covid when everything was falling apart in the world. I heard a whisper say to create them to give hope to people & to give light in times of darkness.”

See exactly what makes her amazing, and tips for when you should get your business headshots updated!

When Should You Update Your Headshot?

Your Appearance has Changed

If you’ve lost or gained weight, had a major haircut or hair color change, or undergone any other significant physical transformation, it’s time for a new headshot.

The last thing you want is for someone to see you and think, “man, they look nothing like their photo.”

Let’s work together to make sure that your current headshot is indeed, current.


Your Current Headshot is Cropped From a Group Photo

I get it, you have a photo that was taken at your last girls night where you look fabulous!

But – real talk, we all know it was cropped in from a larger group.

Promise, you aren’t fooling anyone.

Besides, you were made to stand out from the crowd, Queen – not be a backup dancer!


You’re in a New Stage of Your Career

If you’ve recently started a new job, been promoted, or launched your own business, it’s a good idea to update your headshot to reflect your new status.

Plus, it gives you the chance to add a bit of personality with a different photo.


You Are Using the Headshot in a New Way

Someone asks to use your headshot to promote your business, but it does not need to send you into a panicked tailspin.

If you are starting to use your headshot for things like speaking engagements, networking events, or online dating, it’s important to make sure it’s high-quality and represents the person you want others to see you as.


In general, most experts recommend updating your headshot every year.

However, there’s no hard and fast rule, so it’s best to follow your gut and update your headshot whenever you feel like it’s time for a change.

And if you are using a non-professional picture as your headshot, then that is definitely a good reason to get a new photo done.
