I received this email tonight from one of my certified database members. This lady had an initial interview and a coaching session with me about a month ago, right before the holidays, and brought me a few candid photos, pretty photos but not professional, poor quality, low resulution and not really representing her at her best. I suggested to update the profile and to get new professional photos. She was actually open to it and was very prompt to follow all the instructions. Withing a month I have set her up with a man that was a perfect match to her and everything she was looking for. Wishing them both much love and a lasting relationship.
"When I shared a pot of tea with Sophia in her home overlooking Lake Washington, I realized I had truly found an alliance in my quest to find “the one”. It was easy for me to proceed with her plan which included professional photos. Along with the photos, the experience of writing my bio brought my proactive stance and quest to life. Preparing for the shoot was a thoughtful and fun process that took some time and energy prior to and the day of the shoot, however it was so worth it. Within a week of Sophia posting my profile with my photos, a tall, dark and handsome (not kidding!) gentleman asked for an introduction. That same gentleman had previously seen my snapshots on the database and did not express an interest in meeting me! A thoughtful and authentic bio and professional pictures are an integral part of this process. Snapshots can never accomplish what the professional photograph can. The difference is in the lens and the person behind it."
