Helping you be You

Confident. Comfortable. Connected.

Business Portraits that put YOU back in the picture.

Let me take a moment to explain what I mean by that. 

We all know that these days, our headshot is our digital handshake. It’s usually the first impression that a potential client or employer has of us. We know the importance of standing out in the crowd too. That’s the easy part. 

The more difficult part is figuring out your what. What do you want your image to convey about you? Think about that for a moment. I’ve found that no matter what the industry, we all want our imagery to say pretty much the same thing: we all want to appear confident, approachable and trustworthy. The people who I do business with are all of these things – but here’s what else I know. 

The moment someone points a camera at your face, you freeze and your brain says “It’s time to smile” and you move your mouth and you do the “Cheese” and we do this because we believe that a smile starts with our mouth – but it doesn’t. A genuine smile is hormone led – so it runs from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. Your whole body lifts, your posture lifts, you squeeze your lower eye lids to the outsides of your cheeks, the corners of your mouth go up to your earlobes. Everything goes upwards and outwards because that’s where happiness lives and we’re releasing endorphins because we’re moving those muscles in that way and we feel happy.

I teach you how to move through that feeling. I coach you to look in a photograph just as you would in person – and it’s easier than you think. 

With a collaborative process and no time limits, I help you be you in front of a camera. I even back my work with a 100% guarantee.
