July 24 and 30 2018: AWIS DC Summer Headshot Event


Professional headshots are an excellent way to make your profile or resume stand out! 

Have you ever had a picture taken or made professionally? 

Or has it been a few years since you have and need an updated one? 

Now’s your chance!

We are proud to present Dr. Joy Brathwaite, a fellow woman in science and professional photographer!

Joy is generously offering AWIS DC members and affiliates her services at a highly discounted rate.

$70 for AWIS DC and Bethesda members

$80 for non-members.

For perspective, professional headshots can typically cost over $200!
Joy will also “sweeten the deal” by offering those who attend a 15% discount on future services,
such as family portraits, small weddings, etc.
This event will take course over two separate dates:
July 24th and 30th
 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm,
American Astronomical Society (AAS)
*Close to the Farragut North Metro Station

We have a maximum of 15 people per date.  This will be first come first served.
