Professional Portraits

In addition, conference attendees will have the opportunity to have their professional portrait taken.  These business headshots can be used on LinkedIn profiles and other professional uses.  Professional portraits will be taken:

  • 8:00 – 10:30 am outside
  • 12:00 – 1:30 pm inside
  • 3:00 – 4:00 pm outside

If you are interested, please sign up for a slot (in 15-minute increments) during the conference registration process.  Consider your clothing choice (solid colors best, avoid patterns), hair, and make up.  We ask that you arrive for your appointment on time and ready to have your portrait taken.  Up to 4 people can have their portraits taken in each 15-minute appointment increment to maximize the number of people who can take advantage of this.  Digital files will be emailed to you after the event.
