The Essentials of Posing for Photos from a Selfie

Ever wanted to know how to pose for a photo if it is not a selfie? We will spend some time in Susan Symonds Beacon Street Studio, Infinity Portrait Design, exploring what every woman needs to know…the essentials of posing for photos from a selfie, to social groupings and your company’s latest event! We will even do a mini headshot session to show off what we have just learned to up our LinkedIn game!  

Light refreshments will be available at the studio and then those interested can gather for an optional casual dinner on Charles Street after the event.

Backyard Adventures Coordinators

Tiana Celesia

Tiana Celesia is back for another season with the Forum and so thrilled to welcome Cindy Foster as her co-lead this year.   A New York native, Tiana came to Boston in 1990 to complete a Dietetic Internship at Brigham and Women’s hospital, fell upon Beacon Hill by accident and never left.  She spent the first 11 years living on the hill with her husband and eventually 2 children.  Although Tiana misses city living, she is still an integral part of Beacon Hill as a business owner.

Tiana is a Registered Dietitian and Health coach specializing in weight management and functional nutrition.  She currently operates her nutrition practice inside of Charles Street Family Chiropractic which she has also helped to run alongside her husband for the past 28 years.  Life has changed this season with both kids off to college so in addition to expanding her business, she is looking forward to engaging in more BHWF events, time with family and friends, travel, boating, cooking up delicious paleo based meals and snuggling with her dog Chester.
