Leading Women Entrepreneurs Recognition Event | NJ Brand Photographer


Last week, I attended an inspiring event hosted by the Leading Women Entrepreneurs organization at the Fiddler’s Elbow Country Club in NJ. Over a hundred people attended the gathering from all different industries (including NJ Congressman, Leonard Lance!)

During the event, the LWE awarded 25 women in business the Brand Builder Award. I was honored to be included in this elite group of women and receive this award for the work I do at MikiFoto + Co.

It was a pretty incredible feeling, after 16 years of being an entrepreneur and 10 years working as a professional photographer, to be recognized and celebrated for my branding expertise.

As a fellow entrepreneur, I know first hand the frustrations of feeling lost in a saturated industry. I’ve been there too — trying so hard to get noticed and to connect with my ideal client.

This is why I do what I do.

Since the beginning of mikifoto.com, my mission has been to inspire women entrepreneurs to show up and boldy own their brand. I’m passionate about helping my clients discover their unique message, craft a story that communicates their passion, and share that story with confidence.

Simply put, I help my clients create brands that are eye catching, memorable, and will make their audience stop in their tracks and take notice.

I accomplish this with a combination of business strategy, storytelling and visibility that I learned from my time in corporate advertising on major beauty brands like L'Oreal and Oil of Olay and that I’ve perfected as I’ve worked with hundreds of women entrepreneurs.


From creating brand visuals to creative content, I step in when my clients are ready to make an impactful connection with their audience. They grow their businesses faster as they share their story and become more visible, which leads to greater impact, influence and profit.

Sure, it’s not an easy feat. It would be a lot more comfortable to hide behind logos, websites, or to just copy other people's messaging. But to connect with and serve our audience best, we must show up as the confident face of our brand.

So thank you, LWE, for honoring me with the Brand Builder award. I’m so grateful and inspired to continue this important work!
