Why you need to get a professional first time around!

One of my goals for 2008 is to get my professional image jacked up - some of the action steps underneath that banner are to 1) get the website revamped and 2) get professional photos done.
I'll confess that getting the photos done was a HUGE issue for me - I'm not a hair & make-up kind of girl. I really only go to the hairdresser when it is absolutely necessary (need a colour or can't cope with all the curls) and I wear very little make-up.

So I fully intended to leave this for as long as possible ;)

Until I had my consult with the web designer I chose (it's a secret for now so you'll have to wait and see everything at the GRAND unveiling). We were tossing around some possibilities and she asked about photos. I thought that this is as good a time as any to take action so why not?!

Because I'm accountable to someone to deliver all the copy and photos, I had to actually make the calls and get it done. But the dread was still there - and when my friend couldn't help me with the make-up, I really wondered if it was all worth it.


I got my hair done, followed Angie's instructions (do your make-up a lot thicker than you think it should be) and bribed my husband to come with me to the other side of the world (Meyerton!).

The photographer took one photo where a normal person (like me) would have taken at least 10 to get the shot.

I was so impressed and realised once again why it's always better to get a professional in, first time around.

It actually saves you time and money when people know what they're doing. Don't you agree?

There's another photo on my Facebook profile too which I love, love, LOVE! And of course, this one on the blog.
