More and more, clients are having me shoot headshots for Linked-In and social media. While a flattering and updated corporate portrait is so important for everyone, its even more so for social media sites.

At a recent webinar on Linked-In, I learned how easy it is to find new professional contacts. Linked-In has filtering tools to refine your searches, and you can easily find friends of friends who can help you with your job search, mentoring opportunities or peer networking.

But as the old saying goes, you can never make a second first impression. Which is why its so important to have a NYC professional photographer take updated photos of your professional staff so everyone has a flattering professional headshot portrait.

Posing with friends in front of the “step and repeat” banner has become a staple of event photography in NY City. Guests love posing with their friends and seeing the shots on social media.

At this party, the client had an assortment of fun props that were used during these portrait photos. My favorite one is shown in this photo, using a large frame with an opening for the guest’s faces.

“Step & Repeat” photos are always a highlight in corporate event or non-profit gala photography, and I love the idea of using props to make it an even more fun experience.

As women around the world climb the corporate ladder, there are many professional organizations hosting educational and networking events. These types of meetings are excellent opportunities to socialize in a professional environment, exchange business cards and share helpful tips.

Business networking is important for all of us, as its a great way to keep abreast of industry trends, make contacts that might be useful down the road, and its always nice to meet new people anyway.

As a corporate business event photographer in NYC, I’m always inspired by the wonderful brilliant women that speak and attend these special events.

Who doesn’t love a birthday party?! From the time we’re small kids wearing birthday hats at our neighbor’s birthday parties, we love getting together and celebrating happy times…

I was honored to have covered a very special evening in NY City when friends and family gathered to celebrate actor Paul Sorvino’s birthday, which coincided with the 25th anniversary of his film “Goodfellas”. The birthday cake was decorated with movie memorabilia including cigars and wads of cash.

Mr. Sorvino’s dear friend, Governor Andrew Cuomo, raised his glass and toasted Mr. Sorvino’s wonderfulness and vast talents, after which guests were treated to a gorgeous operatic performance by the guest of honor.
