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.

Little Miss J and her family came to see me in my Boynton Beach studio a few weeks ago.  She was only four days old and such a delight!  Her brother made me work for it!  We managed to get this beautiful newborn baby girl and her family updated portraits.   I am currently booking February 2018 due dates!  Please call or email me with details on newborn portrait sessions!  #justtoseeyousmilephotography Photographer: www.justtoseeyousmile.com

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! 

 

Halloween is Creeping Up!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to enjoy with my kids! Who doesn’t love pumpkin carving, going out to hunt for that perfect pumpkin, and TRICK’OR’TREATING!!   The thing I love the most about it is knowing that fall is here and gorgeous colors in photographs at the pumpkin patch!

Many of you know that I only do a limited number of mini sessions per year and this is one that I share with the public!  If you have never used me before to document your family, NOW is the time to give us a try!

Come get caught in our Spider Web with our Halloween Mini Session! This FRIDAY ONLY! Don’t miss out I have TWO spots left!

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 🙂

 

I have had the pleasure of working with this family for several years now and I love being able to see this young man grow up before me….Mom wanted some images for his save the date cards for his big celebration in June….can’t wait to see what she comes up with!  Don’t let these precious milestones go by without documenting each step of the way……CALL ME to talk about your special event!  561.350.4219

I really can’t believe it was six years ago today that I was calling my sister in Tallahassee to let her know that she would be sharing her birthday with her newest niece…and to sweeten the deal, it was Mother’s Day.   This birthday for Abigail is so sweet for me.    It is the first time her birthday has fallen on Mother’s Day since her birth and it brought back the day like it was only yesterday.    Looking over at Jeff through my tears to say that she looked just like her big sister, Hanna, but “fat”!  ha ha….She was a big baby at 9 lb. 2 oz, but she was the best Mother’s Day gift a Mommy could have.  She definitely has put our parenting skills to the test over the last six years, but we wouldn’t trade her for anything.  She is a little stinker, but she is proving to us that she is a very sweet, kind hearted, smart, and really funny little girl.  She admires her big sister more than anything and she definitely lives life to the fullest.   Happy Birthday to my energetic Abigail Elizabeth!  WE love you!!!!

Happy 10th Birthday to Hanna!

February 28, 2011

WOW.  February 28, 2001 at 6:47 p.m.  this adorable little baby girl blessed us so immensely.  Words can’t even describe how lucky we are to have her.  Hanna turns 10 TODAY.  It seems like yesterday that this tiny little 7 lb 11 oz baby girl was in our arms.  She has grown up so fast and turned into a beautiful, sweet, kind hearted, smart, funny young lady.   She reminds us regularly what’s important and thankful to God that he has a presence in our lives.  I was able to use Hanna last week as a model for a few local photographers to play and my friend Kristi Mangan shared this image of Hanna with me.  It captures her in every way….Thank you Kristi!  I hope to share more from her birthday session soon….XOXOXO to my Sweet Hanna!  Happy  Birthday Sweetie!  WE LOVE YOU!
