This project is so awesome! I (Terri) have been talking, scheduling sessions and photographing so many incredible women for this project.
These women are amazing! It has been so wonderful talking, and getting to know them and their life stories during this project. They have let me into their lives, and are open with me about the ups and downs of being a mom. It ain’t always pretty! In case you don’t know me, I have a 14 year old son, who is the light of my life.
So many of their stories and lives I can relate to as a mom, a women, a wife and working mom.Strengths, weaknesses, life journeys, roadblocks, detours and the paths that shape who we are, and where we are going. These are what make these stories so fascinating.
The whole project is showing the realness of being a mom, and in a couple of cases-the journey to becoming a mom.
Thank you to all who are participating in the project!! Thank you to everyone for supporting this project!

This project has been featured in the Naper Sun, Naperville Illinois and Chicago Parent, Chicago Illinois.

Why you need a professional Headshot.

   Filed under Business,Headshots,Portraits • Written by Terri

For the last several years Forbes magazine has run articles concerning social media and in particular LinkedIn. Every year the same thing tops their lists of what is the most important element of your presence online.
Here is just a sample!
2013, in the article “8 Mistakes You Should Never Make On LinkedIn”, #1 was Not using a picture, #2 was Putting up the wrong picture
2014, in “10 LinkedIn Blunders That Make You Look Like An Amateur”, topping the list was No photo. Bad photo. Wrong photo.
2015, in “7 Trends To Avoid On LinkedIn Right Now”, Trend #1: You still don’t have a picture.
The bottom line is you NEED a professional photo of yourself that represents you and your image clearly, honestly, and at your best.
Eric Roper Photography specializes in Headshots and Business portraits that help you engage online and off.
