A Message from Kristin Nelson

You Don't Have To Be a Supermodel...

Kristin Nelson

To capture a good head shot. But you do have to have these three things:

1) a comfortable environment,

2) a photographer willing to take a lot of shots to snag the perfect moment,

3) and an end-result head shot that looks and feels like the real you.

I speak from experience. Last November we scheduled a photo shoot for the whole office. We lined up a makeup artist and a great photographer with a gorgeous portfolio of interesting and professional images. We headed to his studio for a four-hour extravaganza.

And it didn’t work. The studio was too formidable, and we couldn’t relax. We got a bunch of shots of all of us looking like deer caught in headlights. None of us looked like ourselves.

Luckily, our photographer, Dan, agreed. We rescheduled the shoot, and the second time around, Dan came to our home turf—the NLA office, where we all felt at home. The difference was night and day, and the pictures are now featured in this newly designed newsletter and on our website.

Some other tips:

  1. Wear softer colors (lean more pastel than bold). I almost never wear pastel so opted for white with muted blues and the one pastel sweater I own in light pink. If you go bold in a color, make sure everything else around you is neutral.
  2. Wear clothes you feel attractive in. This will change how you project on the day of the shoot.
  3. Trust the photographer. He or she will make you look good even if you believe you need to lose ten pounds.

And the most important tip? Jut your chin forward in the turtleneck stretch. Feels weird as all get out, but it will sharpen the jaw line and eliminate any double chin fiasco.

Upcoming Webinars

We had a huge success with our March Webinar intensive called THINK LIKE AN AGENT. Class size was limited to 12 people and the webinar sold out in about 12 hours.

Attendees had this to say about the workshop:

“GREAT workshop. Really glad I spent the time and money.”

“Thank you, Kristin! and thank you, Lori! We have decided to form a our own road mapping critique group. We are so excited to move forward.”

“You are a born teacher. The class atmosphere was warm, encouraging and had an atmosphere of trust — no easy feat considering we were all strangers. You kept focused on the message (think like an agent, is this market ready) and didn’t go off on tangents. I’ve taken a lot of courses and workshops, and yours was the most productive by far, and well worth the money spent. Many thanks for sharing your knowledge.”

The response was so positive, we definitely plan to offer this webinar intensive again in the summer so stay tuned! Newsletter readers get first shot at the webinar slots!
