The Perfect Head Shot to Nail Your Dream Job | Portfolio Head Shots Winchester, Ca | Kim Fast | Stevie Dee Photography

You're never too young to need head shots for your dream job. So yesterday I headed out to Winchester, Ca to take some head shots for this gorgeous girl I know (who also happens to be my cousin)! We weren't exactly sure where we wanted to go but we found this awesome open field on the side of the road and thought this would be perfect. Kim is auditioning for a job as a Disney Princess to entertain at childrens' birthday parties. Seriously, how cool is that?! She's also required to sing and dance but this girl can do it all! She has an amazing voice and is on the cheer team at her High School, but that's not all! She's also fisher and hunter and can kill really, really big bugs (like the one that made me scream during our session....yeah.)KIMFAST-32

Richie's Real American Diner

Celebrating 22 years!

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of meeting Jack and Linda Williams, owners of Richie's Real American Diner in Murrieta and Temecula. Jack and Linda, married 60 years, started their careers in the food industry some 57 years ago. The patriotic duo helped develop a concept for a well known steakhouse chain and quickly became their largest and most successful franchisee. Along the way they also became friends with Colonel Sanders of KFC and Carl Karcher from Carl's Jr. before opening their first Richie's Real American Diner establishment in 1991 in Temecula, Ca.

The "Richie" from Richie's Diner is named after Rich Snyder, who started working in his family's In-N-Out restaurant at  early age. He soon became president and CEO of the company at the age of 24. He was also a close, personal friend of Jack and Linda, and they admired the high standards he maintained in every one of his restaurants. As a tribute to the accomplishment and excellence Rich contributed to the restaurant industry, Jack and Linda named Richie's Real American Diner in his honor.

Between the fresh food and great service, it didn't take long before the neighboring community of Murrieta, Ca demanded a Richie's for themselves. Today, Richie's Real American Diner can be found in Temecula, Murrieta, Rancho Cucamonga and Palm Desert, although it still remains a family owned and operated business. Jack and Linda opted out of franchising for fear that it would compromise the quality and personality which is what made the Richie's experience so unique. Today, they remain a privately held, family run business and plan to keep it that way.

While dining in a mint green leather booth, don't be surprised if you are paid a visit from Jack or Linda themselves, they love to stop by each table and greet their guests.

"It's not about the cheapest  ingredients, it's about the best... and we serve the best." Jack and Linda pride themselves on maintaining the highest quality product they can. Their concept is simple: old-fashioned country cookin', using only the best ingredients, served by a friendly, courteous staff member devoted to "pleasin' people."

A few weeks back we drove out to De Luz and did some product photos for  RP Olive Oil & Gourmet Gifts.  The owner, Barbara, has about 250 olive trees on her property. The olive tree grove proved to be the perfect backdrop for our session! Barbara is one of the sweetest people I know...and her olive oil is to die for!

Everything is handcrafted in California, from the crushing of the olives to the bottling and packaging. In fact, almost all the packaging materials are reusable & recyclable and made in a California based facility who employ developmentally disabled people.

Does your business need a fresh look? The importance of having professional photos to reflect your brand | Inland Empire Commercial Photographer| Stevie Dee Photography

Are you a business owner? Do you have a website? Are you active on social media sites? Now let me ask you this... When was the last time you updated the photos on any of these sites? MD Diet of Temecula Commercial Photography Stevie Dee Photography

Every day people everywhere are using online searches and social media sites to find businesses. The great thing about this,  most of these social media sites are free and website hosting is typically less expensive than running an ad in the yellow pages. The down side to this, your business needs a constant presence online that reflects your business and your brand. Luckily for me, and other photographers, it's easy to have beautiful photos that reflect our work while maintaining our presence online. For other professions, this may not be so easy. There's nothing worse than having horrible photos that reflect your business... But that's just my opinion hehe.

Recently I've had quite a few inquiries from businesses to update their head shots or team photos. Expanding into the commercial side of this industry was something I never really thought about before, but once I started talking to other business owners I knew there was a market for this.

Owning a business isn't easy, anyone who is self employed or knows someone who is can tell you this. There is a million and one hats you have to wear at all times. Making a good first impression of your business online is so so so important, but I feel it's one area most businesses don't focus on. And this is where you need to contact your local photographer to give your business a fresh new look! Seriously, you won't regret it!
