WHY HEADSHOTS?

In the digital age, the importance of being known, liked and trusted can not be over emphasised. As a small business owner, you are the FACE of the business, and it's YOU that your customers need to know, like and trust. Having an image that represents you and your business in the best light, is the whole point of professional headshots. 

Having professional photos makes you look more professional. Having a variety of photos means that you can tailor your images for various social media formats, for your website and you can change things up as you want to. 

Hiring a photographer for just your photos can be unattainable for a new business. This collaboration has been created to make the whole exercise affordable and within reach for newer and start up businesses. 

We want to help you put your Best Face Forward in your Business!

WHY COLLABORATION?

Collaboration over Competition. It's one of WAHM WorkSpace's core values

Empowering women to work better is our new slogan, and this collaboration fits so nicely into this! We're empowering the women business owners who are part of the collaboration to work with new vendors, to create something unique, and to widen their audiences. 

We're also empowering the women who come to the event to put their Best Face Forward.  Having beautiful photos of herself can make the biggest difference in how a woman feels about herself. And a happy business owner, is a successful business owner. 

Putting your best face forward is bound to bring in the clients, business and money!
