If you’re a genealogy professional, a great headshot can help create a positive first impression as you work to market your research and/or speaking services.
Headshots are an important part of provider profiles on Genlighten, but they’re also key to, say, Association of Professional Genealogists directory pages and the “about me” sections of business websites.
If you need a quality photo to help market your genealogy services , we’d like to help.
It’s time for another Genlighten Headshot Extravaganza!
We’ve hired Sheryl from Foto Graphics by Sheryl to take headshots at the Genlighten booth at the the National Genealogical Society conference in Grand Rapids on Friday, May 4, from 10:30 am – 2:30 pm. (There will be no conflicting classes or events between noon and 2:30 pm that day.)
The event is free and you do not have to be a research provider on Genlighten to participate–although, of course, we hope you’ll consider that possibility.
Sitting for the photo will just take a few minutes out of your already-busy conference schedule and Sheryl will work hard to put you at ease. The resulting photo will be yours to use for marketing your business, no strings attached.
Here’s how it works:
- Create a free log-in on Genlighten (user name, password, email address) and add your name to the account so we can match your photo to your email address when the time comes to deliver your headshot. (We won’t spam you and we won’t share your account information. This is just an easy way to make sure that we can get your photo to you.)
- Reply to the Genlighten welcome message to let us know you’d like to participate, and tell us when you’d be available between 10:30 am and 2:30 pm.
- We’ll put you on the schedule for a 5-minute slot and reply with the time you should plan to arrive.
- Your photo will be ready approximately 2 weeks after NGS and we will email a link so you can download it. We’ll also provide you with a release giving you permission to use the image.
So, why are we sponsoring this event? Because it helps us get the word out about Genlighten. Because it’s a way that our marketing dollars can have a long-lasting, positive impact on the genealogy community. And because, quite frankly, it was a lot of fun when we did it at RootsTech and we’re looking forward to doing it again!

See you at NGS!
