To say that the business has been a learning process for me is a huge understatement. I knew nothing. Nothing. So I am learning. And learning. And I think the dots are starting to connect and I am starting to understand what works and what doesn’t work. More precisely, what works for me. Branding, networking, marketing, outsourcing…all snazzy terms terms that meant nothing to me, but now they suck me in…it intrigues me. So something I have noticed as I have worked with others is the value of connecting and relationships. I am always drawn to warmth, personality, and genuineness. Aren’t we all.

When Christine contacted me regarding head shots, I asked her to take a look at my website to better understand my style. I was a bit concerned I could not offer what she was looking for. But in her words, “Boring head shots are the problem.” She wanted her billboards/business cards/ads to portray genuineness and personality…a real smile in a good location.

Thanks to Jolyn from In His Image Photography for helping out. Christine was a pleasure to work with! Let me share a few.
