You can get a professional photo for all your social media:


According to a recent article in the New York Times, people are spending thousands of dollars for professional photo shoots exclusively for their social media profiles.

New York attorney Genavieve Shingle justified her expensive photo portfolio by saying, "People buy you, more so than your exact services or goods ... My business is truly and authentically me, so I wanted to make sure that this came out in my social media presence." 

But not everyone paying $5000 or more for these photos is using them for branding or business purposes. Some people, primarily women, are simply using them to feel confident competing with other social media users. One woman admitted that her sole reason for spending money on a photo shoot was for "the gushing feedback she gets from Facebook friends."
