Feel confident in how you show up to grow your brand.
Through my branding photography sessions, my goal is provide you with vibrant, professional images so you can show up confidently as an expert and the face of your brand.
But there’s a tiny problem…
You’re not a photographer (or maybe you are – I take branding photos for fellow photogs too!) and you’re tired of bugging your best friend or Instagram husband/significant other to take iPhone pictures for your website and social media profiles.
Plus, worrying about actually running your business and doing the work your clients hire you to do.
Having an image library FULL of headshots, images showing you at work and showcasing your products.
You’ll have your own branded stock images that can be used for blog post thumbnails, banner images, social media, and more. You won’t have to spend hours trying to find the next best image to post on Instagram or scramble to find a photographer when you get hired for that next speaking gig.
Show off your business to the world with confidence because you know it’s looking SO GOOD?
Be taken seriously in your industry? Hey, visuals matter when it comes to your business
Attract and book your dream clients?
Sell more products from your online or brick and mortar store?
Link arms with someone who has your best interests in mind- even after your images have been delivered?
READY TO WORK TOGETHER?
Photography is truly an important investment because your visuals are the first impression you will leave on potential clients. When done right, your visuals WILL help you attract more clients and leads.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS —
It all starts with my branding questionnaire. From there, I will evaluate your answers, take a look at your website and social channels, and complete a visual opportunity analysis that will help me understand how you are currently using imagery. From there, I will be able to make recommendations on where we can improve upon and that will be the guide for planning your session. Things to plan include, location, what stories to tell, outfit ideas, props, etc. If you’re working with a brand or web designer, we’ll include them in our consultation too.
Your fee comes with a commercial usage license allowing you permission to use the photos on your website and social media outlets. Any magazines, publication, or other brands/organizations interested in using the images should be referred to me to purchase a use license.
I use a protected online gallery for which you will be able to view and download your images.
No problem! Any images you want, beyond what is already included in your package is available to purchase at an additional rate.
Typically it takes 2-3 weeks depending on the season. If you need the photos beforehand let me know before your shoot. An additional fee will apply for rush editing.
Yes! Part of the shoot plan will identify what types of action shots we want. For entrepreneurs that work a lot at their desk, perhaps we will style a story tailored to that. Are you a coach? Have a mock session with a client. Or maybe you are a makeup artist and want to shoot a demo of make-up. We will figure this out together during the planning stages.
I would recommend at least a six weeks to two months in advance of your targeted shoot date. This is to give us time to plan your session and secure any locations that may require a reservation/fee or permits.
I do have an array of props that I can bring if they match your brand and shoot plan. I highly recommend you bring props that align with our shoot plan, such as your camera, laptop, flowers, makeup brushes, etc. Suite 226 and Lake Art Studio also has a prop library we can use if you choose to shoot there.
No, your license does not require credit when posting, but it is always appreciated! I love being tagged on social media by my clients, but you don’t have to.
