Pia in her garden

Pia is very self-conscious and hates having her picture taken.  I totally understand that!  However, as a coach and entrepreneur she has realized the importance of having good pictures of herself for marketing purposes.   For example, a good profile picture for Facebook and other forms of social media is an important investment.  If you’re using Facebook to keep in touch with your customers, that 1 x 1 cm square is how you’re seen.  It should be easily recognizable and portray you in a way you’d like to be seen.

Pia needed some traditional shots where she’s smiling and looking at the camera, but since she’s not comfortable in front of the camera, I alternated those shots with some joking around and giving her a task to do such as telling me about her garden or picking fruit.
