I belong to many networking groups but the one where I met Rocio, Polka Dot Powerhouse, is very special. It's more about connections and friendship. Rocio is so generous is spirit and talent! When she told me she had never had a professional portrait I was surprised. She is so beautiful! I am so thankful to have met her. She owns Craft Maker's Studio which has classes that make the most beautiful things! If you are crafty or even wishing you were even a little crafty, I highly suggest you check out her webpage to see the latest class offerings.
The longer days of Spring brings out some beautiful natural light settings here in the East Bay of San Francisco. Chatting away with graceful lady made the time just slip away. She's starting a new chapter in her life by starting a new business. Did you know women start more small businesses than men? Go ladies! I have too many favorites to share them all here but here's just a few.
Here's a recent session for a personal trainer and entrepreneur. I love the variety of images we were able to capture. In advance, she said she's stiff in front of the camera...really? I don't see that!
YOUPRENEURS?! What another buzzword? Yes, sort of. It encompasses all those who know the hustle is real. You get up thinking about your business and often you're up at night thinking about your business. Chances are you LOVE your business - so why not share that with everyone at your very FIRST IMPRESSION. And when is that? More than likely it's on social media.
Does your headshot convey your "why?" Have you identified and written out your why? One of my favorite books is Start with Why by Simon Sinek. Once you are clear on your why - it will allow you to focus and market to your ideal client. And that's another topic to be discussed in another blog post - identifying down your ideal client - down to the car they drive and the places they shop.
This beautiful woman is the face of Thrive This Day. She is one of two very inspiring ladies who are touring with their acclaimed "Living Your Inspired Life" workshop. I attended their workshop in Oakland CA and it attracted a great group of people who shared their vunerabilities, their passions and the common goal of wanting to make the most out of this life we are given. Their next workshop is in LA on May 12th and after that Boston on June 23rd. I highly recommend you check them out!
