Are you using a selfie or your face clipped out of a group shot to represent your professional business? Then your profile photo might not be working in your favor.  With so many more people using social media to connect and most times scoping you out before they meet you, it is even more important to make sure you are using a professional headshot on your LinkedIn profile, Facebook business page, Instagram, Twitter and your website. Creating different looks for each of them can prove to be a worthy investment showing you value how you are viewed by your clients just as much as the service you provide.  
 
Some tips for getting the best out of your headshot session!
1. Choose a photographer that you trust and makes you comfortable.  You want to trust that they will direct you in the most flattering way and being comfortable will bring out the most genuine expressions.

2. Plan the session type. Do you want a clean backdrop that is versatile or an environmental backdrop that ties into what you do so well! Talk to your photographer about how you plan to use the image and what you want it to project.  

3. When it comes to choosing the wardrobe keep it simple!  Your personality should shine through first, not what you are wearing.  Solid neutral tones work best and choosing color that coordinates with your eye or hair color is always complementary. 

4. Share what you do or don't like in past portraits, a good photographer can assist in minimizing or accentuating anything with proper posing and professional lighting. 

5. Hair and Makeup professionally done helps you feel and look your best  How do you feel when you have just gotten fresh cut and style? Doesn't it make you feel like a million bucks and like you can take on the world!

Newborn Photographer - Twin Girls

"You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore...but let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you." - Kahlil Gabrin

Twins how can you resist the cuteness, doubled! Josephine and Natalie sisters, but each are unique in their personalities and beauty.  Mom and Dad have so much to be proud of with these two happy and healthy girls. Bringing personal items to your newborn session helps tell your individual story like these parents one American and the other Brazilian. Vintage styled with Mom's collectibles, jewels and their favorite snuggle monkey for Natalie and rabbit for Josephine we had so much fun! 

Lucky me I inhertited this gorgeous antique, white Tourister Tiara luggage and the travel alarm clocks that we set with the girls birth time - perfect for the announcement design! Happy to give these cool props a new home in the studio.  Are we starting a new trend with the jewels? I just love the idea of giving new life to your favorite piece! These girls are just starting their amazing adventure in life, wishing them many happy blessings!!

Professional Photographers of Massachusetts state convention was held earlier this month where my work competed along with over 185 images juried by a panel of 6 Master Photographers from across the country.  The results were 1 Blue Ribbon for a Merit and 5 Red Ribbons, mostly client images that I captured throughout the year and two personal images created for myself. Part of improving my craft is entering these professional competitions, competing against my peers and being juried by the top working professionals in our industry.  This process has been a part of my success in continuing to bring the best images I can to my clients.  It keeps my creative eye and attention to detail sharp while pushing me to always improve on posing, lighting and composition.  Nevermind the excitement of competition and cheering each other on! 

Thank you to my clients for inspiring my work every day!
