Dear camera-shy coaches, freelancers, and service providers:
To stand-out and grow Your Business Online You know That You Need Great Photos Of yourself
The only problem is that you can't take a good selfie if your life depended on it. And, hiring a photographer... Um. No! Let me introduce you to Option 3!
A fun, no-brainer digital course that will show regular people how to take selfies (that don't necessarily look like selfies) for your business, with just your cell phone.

Right now though...
...you like your selfies as much as you like looking at yourself in the change-room mirror at Victoria's Secret.
When you share your pictures on social media, you just want to die!
They look horrid when you use them on your site and sales pages.
That tired old profile pic from 2007 still looks better.
You've tried filters. And sometimes they help. But not really.
You're tried of feeling and looking unprofessional even though you aren't!
And you can't help but wonder if your bad photos are harming more than helping your brand.
The badass in you doesn't want to care - but you do.
(And it isn't just vanity!!!)
You Also Know That It's An Important Part Of Marketing!
And because of that you considered hiring a professional photographer
You’ve even come across some amazing ones online.
But going through the expense and trouble of a photoshoot for a few pictures you may or may not like doesn’t exactly seem practical.
That idea lasted about 2 seconds before you spit your drink out laughing.
And even if you have a relationship where you could do that > are they able to take pictures you'd actually like?
And then you thought about asking your partner or friend to do it...
Like you, I hated myself in pictures and always chose to stand behind the camera instead.
Not just in my career as a photographer's assistant, stylist, and production manager. I preferred to fade into the background in other parts of my life too.
So if you prefer to shine the spotlight on others, then, like me, you're probably realizing that...
...to grow a sustainable business standing out is sort of important.
Great pictures are just a small part of it, BUT...
...Feeling good about yourself, what you put out there, and actually getting noticed is definitely a big part of it!
So if you're thinking that going pro is the only way I felt the same. In fact, I paid over $500 for a pro-shoot for only 3 pictures (which didn't really go far!)
Then one night, when I was feeling dumb about spending all that money and not having anything to show for it, my husband challenged me!
He asked..."Why can't you do it yourself?"
"You've been a stylist, set decorator, image consultant, AND photographer's assistant!!! Seriously... You know how! You've done it for tons of people so I know you can!!!"
I didn't know what to say.
Tbh... I was skeptical it could work outside of a professional photo studio. And with being so darn awkward in front of the camera.
But then he asked "what do you have to lose?".
And I'm so glad he pushed me! Because now...Not only do I love my selfies so much more than those pro pics. I also love that they helped me become more confident!
And this is what you need to know if you want amazing selfies that stand out and sell!
Learn to take amazing selfies with just a cell phone (even if you you're uncomfortable with your body).

> because you started down this path to have fun and make an impact. Right?!
You can be just like Kathy, who no longer needs to ask her husband or pay a professional for photos! And get so much more engagement with her new photos!
"I loved Susanna's "Selfie Challenge". She had so many great suggestions from selfie sticks to poses and props. It gave me so many new ideas and the freedom to try some new things on my own without bothering my husband to take pictures or hiring a professional. I recommend this course to anyone using social media to help you stand out. Susanna is a great teacher and I'm grateful for all I learned about selfies and myself. Thank you!!!!"
- Kathy Stone, Certified Life Coach and Realtor
I know what you're thinking right now...
But here's the thing about that...
You don't have to be an extrovert, the perfect human specimen, or a talented photographer with a beautiful studio!!!
It comes down to what I call the PHOTO FABLE... because a picture DOESN'T always tell the whole story!
So if you've ever gasped... "Do I really look THAT bad?!" after looking at your pictures...
THIS IS THE BIG SECRET...
The Camera Will Lie!
Unless, you to tell it what to do!
And let's just say it was a lesson Naima was happy to learn!
So here’s the thing about taking selfies. You gotta be ready, right? Make-up, lighting, good hair day, etc.
That’s what I thought and that’s why I wasn’t crazy about taking selfies. Until the Selfie Upgrade Challenge.
Susanna showed me this one tweak I could do to my phone, and suddenly, I could take a selfie I was actually happy with at any time, and any place.
I can’t tell you how freeing it is to not have to “get ready to take some photos” and be able to participate in this impulsive selfie culture with confidence.
Yup, even on the wrong happy side of 50
