A photographer isn’t always thought of as being a B2B business however; professional photos are a MUST for all small business owners. A professional headshot is needed for your website, social networking profiles, public relations and speaking opportunities, marketing material and so much more. Depending on your business type and brand you may need the more traditional solid background photos or something a bit more playful on location. Whatever your needs are Elisha Akram, Kustom Kreation Photography & Celebration Décor can help. I have worked with Elisha on various projects (both professionally and personally) for the past two years (my smiling photo in the blue dress was taken by Elisha). She has a heart of gold, a high standard of professionalism, and does quality work (I’m her biggest fan!). Check out Elisha’s pitch and my interview with her.
