Time For Fresh New Profile Picture

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

I am never a fan of having my picture taken.  Regardless of what others say, I will always find flaws with every shot. 


Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, is hosting a challenge this month where he is asking us all to take the time to update our profile pictures.  

This task has been on my mind lately, but I just haven't taken the time to schedule a head shot photo shoot.  


The picture I used previously on ActiveRain was from a head shot shoot about 5 years ago.  Yes there are a few more wrinkles and a lot more gray hairs now, and I probably should have updated it sooner, but it is kind of like going to the dentist for me.  You know you have to do it, but you don't have to like it. 


Here's the professional shot from 5 years ago.


Today, I met my daughter, Erin for lunch.  She took the time to take some new head shots with my iPhone outside my office building. 

Here is what I chose for my AR Profile.


No airbrushing all the wrinkles out, just me and the tree. 


So for now, this is it.  


I promise not to wait another 5 years for the next one.

I like your new photo, Belinda, and it's so good to see you! It's been a while. I'm going to stalk your posts to see what you've been up to.

Our cell phones can really take some good photos, can't they? And I do like the tree photo, and the fact that your scarf and blazer don't get cropped out of the pic.
