Contest - "My October 2018 Update Your Profile Image" by Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS,  

Profile Pic Change

Many of you know that my husband takes most of my pictures.  He has had a hand in all of my profile pics over the years.  There has been two business cards that I had a different professional photographer shoot and I was not real thrilled by either of them... 

Rick has found that the best images I take are when I am with my grandson. In his words..."there is an extra sparkle in your eyes".  Imagine that! 

I had a professional baby photographer shoot for Tristan about 4 months after his first birthday. The photographer asked me if I wanted to be in a pic with Tristan..... DUH! Of course I would!! 

The pic below is the one, my husband decided to use to get my new Profile Pic as well as everything else including business cards. It is about 1 year and 4 months old.

Sheri and Tristan

Rick cropped it, reversed it, and photoshopped the pic to take my Tristan out of it. Rick told me it was extremely difficult to crop his little "Boo-Boo" out of the pic.

Here is the result.

This gives you an idea of how you can use an image in different ways to mix it up. 

 


 

 

 

 

October's Profile Pic Change

I am not sure if I am going to stay with this or not after October. I have not changed much and I constantly put new pics on my website. I will let the pic simmer this month. I am not going to crop my little one out of this pic.

Cropped, this will be my new image. Rick shot this in August at Sky Harbor Airport.

I thought this came out pretty good considering this is after a 2 hour ride from Sedona and sending my kids off to Switzerland for a month.  I think you know why I like it!

That's a great story and all of the pictures are good ones.  Your grandson is adorable and I can see why you don't want to crop him out.

I like the picture that you chose for your profile, especially since this is supposed to be social media and we want people to see the fun side of us, rather than the serious business person.  Rick is amazing with photography!!!

Hi Sheri

I love the photos, especially WITH Tristan. There is definitely a sparkle in your eye - kids and grandkids have a way of doing that.

I have watched my team member Barbara simply blossom and overflow with joy  when she takes care of her grandson. She didn't become a grandma until 70. This is something she has wanted all of her life.

You take a great photo, Sheri. But what in the world happened to your grandson's eyes????? They're gone!
