Calling all freelancers, artists, solopreneurs, and all-around creative entrepreneurs

You have a split second to make that first (digital) impression stick. How are you making this happen?

In a HubSpot consumer behavior report, 41% of those surveyed have discovered new products on social media in the past three months. This number changes with different generations: 64% Gen Z, 59% Millennials, 47% Gen X, and 22% Boomers.

Social discovery is influential in attracting new clients and customers. And it’s up to you to meet those expectations.

Professional personal branding photos give you the cohesive look that your brand needs

With the personal branding photo session, you leave with a variety of environmental portraits and customized stock photos that you can use on your website, social media pages, and press kits. I love environmental portraits because they contextualize who you are and what you do.

They tend to be taken on-location in your studio, office, home, or workspace. We can also shoot outdoors or rent a space that fits your aesthetic.

Portraits Portfolio

Customized stock photos are those marketing images that make your business stand out from all the others

They act to:

  • Help customers understand a product or service that is difficult to describe in writing
  • Give customers someone to relate to
  • Provide sneak peeks or behind-the-scenes looks
  • Tell your story of what makes you unique

I know the work that goes into building a brand

I have a decade-plus experience in marketing consulting, writing, and photography for brands, which I’ll use to hone in on and deliver those scroll-stopping photos. After booking with me, you’ll fill out a thorough branding and shot list questionnaire that goes deep into who you are and what you hope to gain from the session.

Personal branding photos are a collaborative creative process

From start to finish, I work with you to understand what you need and want from the session. We’re not creating generic stock photos here: you want photos that accurately communicate your brand and story. It’s up to you what you want to capture, but typically, it’ll be a combination of portraits and lifestyle images.

Behind-the-scenes & getting ready for a video shoot

For creatives and business owners like us,
WE are the face of our brands

And shouldn’t you have photos that make you LOOK like the boss that you are, DOING the boss things, IN your boss space?

Oftentimes, we’re so focused on getting customers and launching new things that we forget to market ourselves. You are your brand’s strongest advocate, and your photos should reflect that.

There’s no such thing as being bad at having your photo taken

I’ve worked with many people who have never had professional photos done. It’s not you who is bad at having photos taken, it’s the photographer. A good photographer will work with you to bring out your personality and your best self.

I get it: photoshoots can be scary and anxiety-inducing. I also don’t like being in front of the camera! But because my photography style leans more toward documentary, you don’t need to worry as much about being “picture perfect.” I’ll be there to encourage you and work with you on poses.

This should be FUN and exciting, not something to dread.

So what does a shoot with me look like?

At the beginning of the session, we’ll spend a few minutes saying hi, perhaps even grab a coffee or tea. To ease you into feeling comfortable with the camera, I’ll have you do some work (or pretend to do some work).

From there, we’ll follow the shoot plan and shot list. The eventual goal is to have it feel like you’re hanging out with a friend, who also happens to have a camera on her.

Photoshoot FAQs

Personal branding photoshoot timeline

I have anxiety so I understand the deep-seated need to know everything upfront. Here’s the abbreviated photoshoot timeline.

1. Inquiry & Discovery Call

Fill out the form below & schedule the discovery call (you’ll receive the link to book). We get to know each other, see if we vibe well, and, if you’re ready, decide on a session date.

2. Proposal, contract, reservation fee

You’ll complete a proposal, contract, and invoice for the $200 nonrefundable date reservation fee.

3. Prep time

I’m with you every step of the way. You’ll fill out a thorough branding and shot list worksheet so I can gather information about you, your brand, photo usage, and what photos you want to shoot. We’ll meet for a 30-min pre-shoot planning call to finalize everything and you’ll have final approval.

4. Shoot day!

You relax while I take some great photos of you. I’ll be following the shoot plan and shot list that we agreed on during the planning call.

5. Proofs & sample edits

You select the photos you want me to edit for the final gallery delivery. I choose 2-3 images to perform a full edit on: you’ll review the sample edits and approve them. Learn more about why I have a proofing step and my editing style.

6. Delivery!

2-3 weeks after proof submission, you’ll receive the final images in a beautiful online gallery that you can share and download from. These are available in both hi-resolution and web-resolution sizes.

And if you want to set up a post-shoot strategy call to pick my marketing brain on the best uses for these fresh photos, 15 minutes of strategy is included!
