BIG Members Choice Awards | NJ Photographer & Branding Strategist

What a night! Last week BIG, a women's empowerment organization, hosted the BIG Members Choice Awards celebration. The party was set in NYC and honored members in nine different categories. Women in all industries from coaching, finance, fashion, design all gathered together to celebrate entrepreneurship and community. We got dressed up for the ultimate GNO to support each other's success and hard work. 

I have been a proud member of this group for over four years as both a member and a leader. I  was honored to be nominated for two awards : "Customer Service" for my business, mikifoto and "Better Together" for our Get Gorgeous photography event. The Get Gorgeous collaboration is an all-inclusive experience of beauty, styling and photography for women entrepreneurs who need a stand out headshot. The event is not only about photos and looking beautiful but also about  feeling confident about your business. We have serviced over 100 women in the last three years. 

What a great achievement to win the Better Together award with my partner, Kanani Briggs! We were thrilled to be recognized amongst our peers. And who wouldn't love a high heeled shoe award :)

Collaboration has been a huge part of my business. By combining my expertise with the talents of others, we were able to create an experience unlike anything else out there. Plus, it is so much more fun to partner with like-minded entrepreneurs. The ideas, the energy, the vision - all are inspiring. If you are in business, I encourage you to think about how you can collaborate for your brand. Partnerships can help you stand out from the crowded marketplace.

Kanani and I are already brainstorming our next creative idea! We will be sure to keep you posted on the upcoming collaboration launching this Fall 2016.

If you are interested in hearing about another upcoming collaboration of mine, I am hosting a #learnsocial workshop with two other social media mavens on June 8th in Berkeley Heights. We are sharing our social media recipe for success that you can immediately apply to your business. Think Facebook + Blogging + Instagram. Three hours of in person discussion and conversation.
