3 Steps to Have ANYONE Take Professional Photos of You Happy Hour with Hope

For Photographers

This may truly be one of the messages I get the MOST often on my Instagram: “How in the heck do you get so many photos of yourself!?” Some people think I pay a professional photographer to take pics of me each week, some people think it’s self-timer…but the real answer? It’s MY MOM!!! Haha!!!


As you all should know by now, I am a HUGE believer in the power of PERSONAL marketing – incorporating who you are into your brand, business and social media presence. But, that can feel intimidating when it means getting photos of YOU to share. It used to overwhelm me, but now I’ve learned how to teach ANYONE in my family to take professional pics of me in just a few easy steps!! So, now you can also turn your spouse, best friend, parents, siblings or ANYONE into your own personal photographer to get professional, insta-worthy pics of you to share with your audience!
