Right now though... like your selfies as much as you like cod liver oil!

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.

Filters sort of help...


You're starting to worry that you have to pose in your underwear to get any attention! 

And you wonder…“Do I really look THAT bad?

(No, you don't!)

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 photographers 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... grow a sustainable business standing out is sort of important.

And yes....

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!

At first, I paid  over $500 for a pro-shoot - but only got 3 pictures that I liked.

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 help me stand out! 

And this is what you need to know if you want professional-looking selfies too!

Learn to take amazing selfies with just a cell phone even if you don't think  you're photogenic.

> because I know you're ready to level up and start getting those higher rates! 

Get get enough selfies for a whole year in 1-2 hours even if you think your selfies suck

> because of course you want tons of AWESOME pictures at your fingertips!

Have fun and not just stand out, BUT want to stand out. Even if you aren't superficial or self-obsessed

> because you started down this path to have fun and make an impactRight?!

And yes..

You can be just like Kathy, who no longer needs to ask her husband or pay a professional for 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...

...You don't!

2 Recipes For Gorgeous, Camera-ready Skin

I'm sure you have your favorite skincare products so these won't replace those. BUT, after making my own skincare for 20 years (and having a skincare business at one point) these super simple recipes will give you that healthy, fresh complexion that makes photos stunning.

But the thing that makes the Selfie Upgrade truly valuable is this >> the results go so deep, and so far!

...Because Feeling Good About How You Look Gives You The Courage To Show Up More Powerfully AND More Consistently In Your Business.

...And THAT is priceless!

  • But... I also get that part of you is still thinking "it's just selfies".

  • And of course it's totally normal if you're a little afraid and uncomfortable.

BUT... having good pictures, feeling attractive and wanting to stand out truly changed my life. And I'm not just saying that!  I genuinely want everyone who is ready for this to go through the same transformation!

So, to make it a no-brainer I'm giving it to you...

Janet started feeling like her photos started to reflect her brand and the quality that she aims to give her clients.

I am so glad I participated in Susanna's Selfie Upgrade Challenge! I learned so much about everything from how to use a selfie stick to choosing locations, outfits, and and poses that have helped me take professional photos that I really like!

Frequently Asked Questions For The Selfie Challenge

Do I need anything extra for this to work?

When you sign up I send an email with a couple tools that will help you. Your maximum costs will be anywhere from $15 to $100 at the most. My mission is to help you take great pics without getting things you don't really need.

I don’t have a fancy camera, will this work For me?

You don’t need one. I have been taking photos with a 3 year old phone. The goal is to help you improve your selfies regardless of your cell phone. To help, I discuss the technical settings that make a HUGE difference! 

Do I have to do this now? Or can I start whenever I want.

This is a self-guided course that you can do whenever you want. I recommend that you get to sooner rather than later, while your enthusiasm is high though.

Will this work for me if I am totally awkward on camera?

Ohmygosh - I TOTALLY get it! I am totally awkward in front of the camera too. It takes practice, for sure. But, if I can do it, I feel like anyone can. I give you the tools to help you look good on camera and what you'll find is that it will get easier when you know how to look good in photos, and you start to actually like your pictures!

What if I am just not photogenic and always look bad in pictures?

I don't think anyone isn't photogenic. Some people are naturals but that doesn't mean we can't all look good in pictures?! My mom was one of the first people that inspired me to to turn this into a course because her whole impression of herself changed when I showed her how to photograph herself. She used to think that she was so ugly because she looked so terrible in pictures. The problem was that people didn't know how to take nice pictures of her, this made her cringe in front of a camera, and she didn't know how to pose.

Do I really need nice selfies?

Good question. "Selfie's" may not be essential for you. But, at some point, we all need professional pictures - which is the purpose of this course. So, if you feel like you want or need better pictures of yourself and you don't want to hire a professional, then this course is for you. It's also really helpful to have selfies for social media posts and blog posts too! 

What if I need help or can't make my pictures look good even with your course?

For the first few days of the course you probably won't get any great pictures. But, by the 4th day, I'm sure you'll be able to take better pictures than you can now. AND ... I have an active and super supportive Facebook group. Plus, you can always message me privately 😀  

I don't have time 🙁

Going through this whole course and taking your selfies won't take anymore time than getting prepared for and doing a photoshoot. In fact, you can probably get all of your photos done in 1-2 hours. At the end of this course you should have tons of photos which means that you won't have to take another picture for several months! It's a little bit of work up front, but it will save you tons of time and energy over time.

"Susanna's Selfie Challenge was amazing! I learned so much. Easy to do tasks that resulted in some pretty incredible pics. 

From lighting to backgrounds, even what to wear to get the best shot was all so valuable. It was fun and informative. I would take it again."
