Do you have a professional headshot?  Do you have Linked In, Facebook, Instagram?  Do you have a job that requires you to meet with clients? Are you a board member or part of a networking group?  Do you volunteer?  ALL of these are obvious reasons to have a professional headshot.  In this post I want to dig a little deeper.

Here are the top three reasons why you need to have a headshot created by a professional:

  1. FIRST IMPRESSIONS are vital in today’s digital world and you only have a second to capture someone’s attention.
  2. Conveys PROFESSIONALISM.   It’s important that you put your best foot forward and present yourself as a true professional with a current headshot that represents who you are today.   A selfie or standing up against a plain wall and letting someone snap some pictures of you with your phone isn’t going to do the trick 🙂
  3. It measures SUCCESS!   Most important!  If you show your potential clients that you are willing to invest in YOU, they will be more apt to gain your trust and it shows them that you have the means to invest in them!  People want to surround themselves with successful people.

So what’s next?  Call me at 561-350-4219 for a free consultation or set up an appointment.   It’s my job to create an image that fits your style, brand and personality!  I want to make you look like your best you!   My studio is in Boynton Beach but I would be glad to book in your place of business too.

Calling all business professionals! (and anyone who uses social media for networking)  I can’t tell you enough how important it is to present yourself with a professional headshot.  Showing your clients that you are willing to invest in yourself will help them trust what you have to say as a business professional.  More importantly, it might get you the appointment!  If you haven’t updated your  business headshot in the last 2 years (or ten!) now is the time!  Please call me for a FREE consultation to talk about the branding of your business so that we can get you a quality professional headshot to  put your best foot forward!  Here is a recent example I did for Family Homes by Design located in Boca Raton (https://www.facebook.com/FamilyHomesbyDesign/).    Good luck and wish you all a prosperous new year!

 

 

 

It’s time to teach an old dog new tricks 🙂  We are making changes in 2018 and we hope you like what you see!  Stay tuned for featured sessions that will be added here this year!    To start, I am featuring this families reunion session that took place in December.  “Reunion” sessions are only called that because they typically happen when families get together for special occasions.  Most families have loved ones that live out of the area so we want to let everyone know we are here to document your family when they are able to get together.  Call us for a quote for any size family big or small 🙂  Just be sure to capture your family when the dynamic changes to update!  A marriage, a new baby’s arrival, or a big milestone birthday or anniversary are some great reasons to update your extended family portraits! 

It’s been entirely too long since my last post, so here I am to give you a share overload!    This is just a snip of my favorites for my most recent maternity and newborn work.  The fact that I have to call this work is laughable because it’s not work at all.  I enjoy capturing these priceless milestones for families.  I would most definitely do it for free if I could.  Please join me by LIKING my facebook page.  I would love the opportunity to work with you or someone you know so please pass this along.  Call to inquire anytime at 561-350-4219.   XOXO

As we were driving home yesterday from school, Abby say’s ” Wow, that year flew by.”  I immediately responded with, “It sure did!”  I love capturing the girls on their first and last day of school each year so that I can see how much they have grown.  This year, I can’t help but to notice that they have not just grown physically, but they both have matured A LOT!  Some days I lose the battle of telling Hanna she can’t wear make up.  Most days I tell her to go back upstairs and take some of it off.  With Abby, she woke up this morning saying she wanted to get herself dressed….that is a huge milestone for us b/c if any of you know my little Abigail, you know she likes to push buttons and most mornings I am getting her in her clothes while she is still asleep!  Hanna always pops out of bed….Abby we have to drag.  We experienced many firsts this year…skiing and zip lining were our favorite!  Abby also got started with her first round of orthodontics to fix her tiny upper jaw.  Luckily for me, we will start headgear during the summer where things are much more relaxed.    We hope that you all enjoy your summer and look forward to keeping up with friends via Facebook for travels and such.  Here they are….getting too too BIG.

Such an exciting weekend in our house!!  We are celebrating Abby’s 8th Birthday with a small pool party on Saturday and then she receives her first holy communion on Sunday.  We are so proud of her for the commitment she has made over the last two years.   She is prepared and she is excited!  We hope you all have a wonderful weekend with your families.  XOXO,Stacy

After having my blog down for almost a year…I want to make it a personal goal to post every Friday.   In the past few months I have had the pleasure of working with several families that used to live here but have moved away for one reason or another.   It really is a true testimony when someone makes you one of the first calls they make when making travel plans to come back to the area.  I am so honored and grateful that families enjoy spending an hour with me to update their family portraits when they are here just a short time visiting their loved ones.  A big THANK YOU to ALL those families, and here is a little share of the most recent session with the “E” Family.   This family started coming to me when their older daughter was just about 2 years old.  They had to move away a few years ago and the last two years they have booked a family portrait session while visiting family here from Seattle.   We used to have to chase them around the studio (like all toddlers!)  They certainly aren’t toddlers anymore, and they were really playful for our session on Palm Beach a couple weeks ago.

FINALLY!!!  My BLOG admin. panel has been restored!  After almost a year of NON Blogging….We are BACK!   Exciting news over the last year.  Catching you up really quick and then we can move forward to the fun stuff 🙂  Since our last post we have teamed up with 3D Baby Bump and been able to showcase our work in their brand new office in West Palm Beach.  This husband and wife team are incredibly gracious people so I hope that you consider them for the FIRST PHOTOS  of your baby on the way!   You can find them here :https://www.facebook.com/3DBabyBump?ref=ts&fref=ts.   We appreciate their business and referrals!

We have also opened up a BOUDOIR division.  Stacy has always photographed these sessions in studio based on referral for this intimate session, but now we want to make everyone aware and openly offer these sessions.  Besides, our new division name fits.  Just to see HIM Smile 🙂  If you have been considering this type of session for your sweetheart, please call us for details.  These sessions are priced as our regularly priced sessions for now, but will likely go up once we have our portfolio in place.   These sessions require much time in planning and shooting as well as offer a variety of specialty gifts such as a “little black book” for your guy, so take advantage of these portfolio building prices!!!

We hope this brings you all health and happiness –

 

Stacy and Kristin 🙂

My spunky, fiesty, sweet, funny little girl is already seven years old.  I really can’t believe it!  We decided to celebrate at Animal Kingdom this year and unfortunately my birthday girl spent our first night getting sick for about 5 hours….I felt so terrible for her.  Luckily, in true Abigail fashion, she bounced back the next morning and we were still able to enjoy our day at the theme park.  She loved the shows and the rides.  She especially loved that a lot of the Disney staff wished her a happy birthday as they walked by and saw her birthday button.  I really love that they make these kids feel so special!    She’s a real trooper and I am so thankful it didn’t ruin our weekend.   We also got to see our nephew Jonas at Animal Kingdom too….also celebrating his birthday.   With all of that, she managed to get a blister on her lip, so I am sad to say that I am going to have to shoot her birthday portraits some other day.   But I will be back to share them because I want all of you to see just how big my little baby has gotten this year…..All the love and happiest wishes to My Little Miss Abigail!  Happy 7th Birthday Sweetie!
