First Impressions: The Importance of Pictures

The first impression you make as potential adoptive parents is critical, that’s why choosing great pictures for your profile means a lot. It will be the first visual that potential birth parents will see making it a great opportunity to show the world what you’ve got to offer. Here are some tips to help pick the pictures that will help get you noticed:

Express Yourself!  Pick photos that say something about who you are, where you come from, and where you’re heading. Generic photos won’t help you stand out, be true to yourself.

Don’t Over Do It   While it’s important to be yourself and natural, don’t choose pictures that are over the top or posed, let them see your day to day.

High Quality is Key   Try to avoid “selfies” and low-resolution pictures. Pick natural but quality photos.

Focus on You   Vacation and landscape backdrops pictures are often favorites but try and use recent close-ups so the birth parents can really see your smiling faces.

Family Friendly   Use pictures with your extended family, closest friends, and pets. Let the birth parents see your support system and how much love you have to give.

Home Sweet Home   Picking pictures in your home and in your favorite local spots will add variety to your profile and also give an insight to what your daily life is like. You know how much you have to offer, now let the world see it!
