Lights, Camera, Action! How to tell your story through pictures and video

Debbie and I recently had the most amazing experience with Tobin & Sarah from Photobin Photography in what they call their Modern Glam Experience. It truly was a Light’s, Camera, Action moment!

I met Tobin earlier this year as we shared the stage at Social Media Mastery. I loved his energy and asked him to speak at our Social Media Challenge Meetup. Hearing him speak, I learned so much about the art of photography. What I also learned more though, was the investment he’d made in himself, studying from some of the great photographers from the modern era.

Always looking for excellence in all things, I booked Tobin to film us. We chose to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary by doing this, with a hope that one or two pictures might work for our marketing.

Oh my goodness – talk about under promise, over deliver!

We arrived and had such an amazing time – perhaps by watching this video – you’ll get the full picture

We now have more pictures than we could ever have imagined. We started with 144 and could only narrow it down to 132! I’ve never liked pictures of myself, Debbie the same, but these guys truly captured the “real us”

When we went back for our review session, and saw the pictures for the first time. It was with tears of joy and amazement that we saw, perhaps for the first time – how people see us for who we truly are. It was a very powerful experience.

We all struggle with the image we have of ourselves. Those inner voices that tell us every flaw and fault. But Tobin and Sarah helped us override that self-destruct mentality.

They showed us who we truly are. It truly was a humbling, life-changing, powerful moment.

We showed the video to our daughter Maddie that evening. Afterwards, in tears she said – “Mamma, now you can see how we’ve always seen you – you’re beautiful!” How many times in life does stuff like this happen?

Moving forward, we now have an arsenal of images that will tell our story more, perhaps for years to come. Our new info-products, keynote speeches, workshops, round table forums – we’re so ready!


And we want you too to be able to have that same experience! We’ve asked Tobin for some exclusive #makestuffhappen offers for our friends and followers.
