FREE Professional Photo Shoot to Get You Back to Work


Have you lost your job or been furloughed due to the pandemic and are eager to get back to work? Has the untimely unemployment of a household member and change in financial position pressured you into an employment search?

The Photo Fabulous You team is excited to volunteer their photographic expertise to help individuals who have lost their job as a result of the economic downturn and effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

They are offering qualified individuals a NO COST professional photo to help their resume, job application, social media presence, or Zoom profile stand out and get noticed. With 15% unemployment in Massachusetts and competition for job openings fierce, it has never been more important to make a strong first impression. Hiring managers and teams are still working remotely so it's very likely your interview will be conducted virtually.

What have we been up to in this lockdown?


The Support495 Mission - Support Local, Shop Local, Give Local

Support495 is a series of short interviews where we support and share stories of local businesses in the 495 MetroWest area while we are on lockdown. Why are we doing this? Mary and Nicole are collaborating to help local businesses and professionals, to build awareness for their business or their good cause. Nicole did a week-long series of survival tips and would like to give other people a voice now. It’s an outlet to voice challenges and give your own tips. 

If you live in the 495 MetroWest area and would like to help support a local business please share, like and comment. Check back weekly as we introduce new businesses and listen to their story and tips. Invite your friends, family and community to watch with you. Use our special community hashtag #support495 and if you are interested in getting featured yourself please reach out. We would love to hear your story.

You can follow their stories on your preferred platform.

Part 4: Travel Inspiration with Nicole


Commercial photography for businesses might be Nicole's specialty but in her free time she teaches German and Irish cooking and regularly steps in front of the camera herself at "Travels with Jack" where she inspires and shares some of her favorite travel destinations in Europe.

Today we like to take you to the Peloponnese region in Greece. Not Mykonos, not Crete, not Athens. While these are all beautiful destinations as well and probably the ones you think of first for a trip to Greece, we found the Peloponnese region had so much to offer and was far less touristy. A hidden gem one should not miss.

With just an hour drive West from Athens airport the Peloponnese region starts and stretches over 6000 square miles. Notable places in the region are Corinth, Nafplio, Kalamata, Sparta, Vatia, Githio, the island of Elafonisos, Monemvasia and Mani, just to name a few. You find old ancient Greek villages, the best olive oil in all of Greece, abandoned villages stuck in time, some of Greece's top beaches, monasteries high up in the mountains, caves to explore, fabulous wine, the freshest seafood and salads and some of the friendliest and most helpful locals in Greece.

I share a lot of helpful tips, take you off the beaten track and show you some of my favorite photos from this trip.

Enough said, jump in, watch the show and learn more about all the fabulous things the Peloponnese has to offer.

Watch some, watch it all, comment, ask or share your own tips and pictures from this part of Greece.

Part 3: Travel Inspiration with Nicole

One of my favorite travel destinations is - Iceland. I first went there in 2009, wowww that’s 10 years ago, before the tourism craze started. I have seen the tourism grow over the years and inspired many along the way to visit this magical place.

I have been there in the summer during the long days and the winter. I loved both seasons as they bring their own attractions with them. I have seen the Northern Lights, I swam in the Blue Lagoon, rode Icelandic horses, seen the black sandy beaches in the south, partied here, made new friends and tasted many of the Icelandic specialties.

I highly recommend a visit, a visit to the place North of the Wall.

Part 1: Travel Inspiration with Nicole

Besides making you a Superstar on LinkedIn we also like to inspire to travel.

There are so many unique and beautiful places to discover. We feel travel is needed to understand one another better, discover new ways of cooking, new cultures, appreciate our own world better, and understand history much better. We always come back amazingly refreshed and with buckets full of inspiration and creativity.

So take a look. Watch just 5 minutes or the entire 60 minute travel shows we recorded with host Jack Barron at Framingham Access TV.

We share tips on how to travel to certain destinations, unique paths to discover, culture, foods, and certain things you should avoid. The travel shows mostly focus on travels to Europe.

Let's get started with our latest recording as we could all use a little sunshine and warmth at the moment. Sardinia, Italy (Travels with Jack #66). Check back next month where we will share a new destination with you.

Of course we welcome your questions, feedback and ideas. Please share them with us in the comments below and we make sure to answer them.
