I have been talking to a lot of business owners who are hesitating to state their position on the current situation. Most are afraid of saying wrong or not saying even anything.

Here is a simple guide I use for myself: when it comes to your own core values, where do you stand? What are your human values and promises? What values do you want your company to uphold? What kind of world do you want your kids to live in if they were on the receiving end of this injustice?

Do not cover or mix with politics and anything. This is about core values!

Outdoor vibes with Kathy...

It looks little surreal to be back to new normal and seeing such a vibrant combination of nature and gorgeous Kathy with her urban street style.

I set up my studio light outdoors and this was quite a lovely experience to create sunny day effect in cloudy day.

Nine years ago today, I immigrated from the beautifully mountainous and warmly hospitable Kyrgyzstan, Central Asia, and a proud United States citizen since 2017.

I was mentored and inspired by many strong and caring women during my transitioning in the new land of opportunities.

Now, I continue this legacy, and thrive on empowering and inspiring women to find their voices and to become confident in their personal and professional lives.

Joy Rahat Portaits is designed to capture the diversity and authenticity of women through photography, while Joy Rahat Branding is a sister project designed for C- level executive women in business.

Blooming season....

My neighborhood...
Lansdowne Town Center, Leesburg.

This season it seems nature is booming without us. Never seen my neighborhood such an empty way; empty parkings lots, empty outdoor sitting areas, parks etc... Glad to see how our community is following social distancing.

While most business are temporarily closed: some restaurants are hiring, some are converting to only take outs or even serving from a food truck.

Staying positive and hope we will be back to normal life soon. Meanwhile let's keep supporting local businesses.

Stay safe and JoyFul all.

Beautiful in every aspects...

At the end of last year I went to the UK 🇬🇧, and one of the coolest things was skating into a crowd of over 10,000 people at The BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards. 😆 💫,
It was on live TV 📺 and the audience is over 8million.
I have a message in my ❤️ , and I hope that somehow, some kids somewhere will watch it and just feel inspired, even if it’s just one ☝🏼 thats my dream.

Skateboarding is so fun and so cool and everyone can be apart of our really cool skate family.

Congrats to all the amazing Athletes it was such a fun night and Thankyou everyone @bbc 🇬🇧🙌🏻🙏🏻🤗・・・

EXECUTIVE BRANDING

DistInctively market your uniqueness.

More than most, every C Level Professional and Entrepreneur needs to have a clearly defined and powerful brand presence. The days are gone when owners and CEOs were content to stay in the shadows. Transparency is everywhere and people want to know who you are and what you value.

Research shows that people are 70% more likely to buy from you if they trust you and share the same values.

Good Morning. Many are mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant. People are sharing that they played 🏀basketball & loved the game because of his influence. When we grieve the loss of someone we have never met, it reminds us how far and deep inspiration can reach.

Who has influenced your life & may not be aware of the impact they have made? Today could be a wonderful day to reach out & tell them that they made a difference.

BELIEVE IN CHANGE

This is one of the most powerful personal quotes of Sonja N. Hines, who is a Visionary Leader and Entrepreneur, and the CEO/ President of Akata Global.

My job grants me great opportunities to learn very close, even in personal level C level executives and corporate culture of their team.

While we did the entire rebranding of her America's Fastest-Growing Private Company—the Inc. 5000, one thing was very obvious, Ms.Hines’s persona was equally powerful and inspiring to stand alone. As a result we landed Personal Branding website dedicated to her leadership.

“Before you can win someone’s money, first you have to win their time.
-Michael Drew

You’ve got to get their attention... and keep it. And the first step to doing that is visual.

People instantly tune in to the visuals. The visual signals you send give important clues as to who you are and what you do. They instantly let your audience know whether you’re an A-player or a bit-player.

Unfortunately, this is exactly where most people fall down. Like all the best experts, you're great at what you do, but you may have noticed that these days, that's not nearly enough.

First impressions are made in less than seven seconds and are heavily influenced by your body language. In fact, studies have found that nonverbal cues have over four times the impact on the impression you make than anything you say.

While everyone wants confident, friendly and approachable images, uniqueness and timeless is something that gets you noticed.

Let's talk about headshots ( not portraits but head and shoulder version).

With this headshot, you’ll notice that top part of my head is cropped off, and this is probably pretty shocking, and you’ll likely question why this was done.

This style of close up crop is quite popular within the acting headshot world. The basic idea is that, when the frame is divided into thirds, the best spot to place the subject is at one of the intersections. See here attached photo showing that grid over my headshot below. The human eye just finds these four spots captivating, interesting, and definitely not boring or predictable unlike positioning right in the center of the frame.

What do you think about this style?
____________________________________
P.S.
Most often a lot of professionals and even photographers themselves do not understand difference between headshots and portraits. Here, I have shared a short article with a lot of visuals and differences between headshots and portraits and where to use them best.

Hope you will find it useful.

Unconditional love.....

I have always wanted to photograph the first meeting of an adopted baby. This week, I got to be a part of this incredible moment with one of my best friends! She found out Tuesday afternoon about this baby. Early Wednesday morning, we flew to Florida. Wednesday afternoon, the baby was official theirs and in the arms of their new mom and dad! It was one of the most special moments of my life, I was so privileged to watch this all unfold. What a perfect example of unconditional and sacrificial love. Meet Tilly Pearl..

Experience the best of beauty and branding portraits.

Let us help you feel and look gorgeous, confident, empowered.

​Women tend to be natural nurturers who care for everyone regularly but sadly not for themselves​. I have dedicated a large part of my business to empowering women so that they can share more happiness with their loved ones. My clients say that this experience is more than creating portraits, it is beauty therapy.

​ ​​I believe that everyone is uniquely beautiful and that everyone has something they don’t like about themselves. As a photographer it is my mission and responsibility to bring out your best features, which you might not see often. The beauty portraits that I create are designed to help you feel and look gorgeous, confident, empowered. The session will change the way that you look at yourself forever.

All of the clients you see here look like super model or cover girl, but they are not models. They had no special knowledge or training of how to work for the camera except what I instructed them at their session. All of them are like me and you, everyday moms, sisters, wives and daughters, who need delicate coaxing and care to bring out their confidence.

The ‘same day transformation’ photos show our everyday look and then transformation look. Note that it is not necessarily all about the hair and makeup, but rather about the complete experience; being properly posed, lit with quality light, personally styled and professionally edited portraits that show the models best, inside and out.

It is all about ‘EXPERIENCE’! Untamed femininity, expect the unexpected.
