Portraits with Impact
I have used these images over and over again and feel that they speak for me when I’m not able to speak for myself. I’ve used these photographs for my website, PR features, speaking engagements, podcasts, social media… the list is endless!
Before having a headshot I was proud of, I didn’t put myself out there. I turned down PR opportunities. I didn’t launch my website. Not having a great headshot held me back; that void echoed the little voice inside my head that told me I couldn’t do it. I went to an event a few years ago and the first thing the speaker said to a room full of women was: “Ladies - if there is one piece of advice I can give you, it’s to have a great headshot.” This advice was exactly what I needed to hear and it has been the key to my success and continuous growth as an entrepreneur. My headshot has taken me places I never thought I would go. It has opened doors I never thought I would walk through.
This event is for all the women who want a great headshot but don’t know who to hire or how to make it happen. Let me help you make that first investment in yourself. I can’t wait to see where it takes you!

In a time when our online presence often makes the first impression, it’s important to be intentional about what you are communicating. Professional portraits are an opportunity to put your best foot forward, amplify your personal brand and set yourself apart from your competition. A few forgotten areas to make a lasting impression with a portrait include your online profile (such as LinkedIn), your website, social media, speaking engagements and Zoom meetings.
Your safety is our utmost priority. Extensive safety protocols will be maintained throughout the day to ensure the safety of our clients and staff. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out so we can accommodate you and make sure your needs are met.
