There are so many reasons to schedule a professional branding session! In fact it's gonna be a little bit difficult to keep this post short and readable! But you have questions and I got answers, so let's go!

First off, it's probably safe to assume that you have some sort of business (and yes influencing counts!) if you are reading about branding photography. Congrats! It's just the best life, right?? Right! You love what you do, and you just want other folks to love it and do business with you, too. You know how you do that? You get them to like you and trust your expertise. You know how you do that? You gotta let them get to know you. I bet you can guess at least one great way to do that!! Yes, very good - by showing them your face in a beautiful, brand specific photo.

If you are...

  • designing a new website
  • growing a social media following
  • pitching social media collaborations to brands
  • launching a new offering or product
  • beginning a new marketing campaign
  • scheduling speaking engagements
  • starting a podcast
  • writing a blog
  • renting a billboard??
  • etc. etc. etc.

...then you need professional branding photos of yourself.

Becoming a familiar face to potential clients/followers/listeners/readers is invaluable. People want to do business with someone they feel comfortable with and, yes, there are so many facets to being someone your clients can trust. But the first step is introducing yourself. Professional branding photos will help you put your very best foot forward from the get-go.

But do you really need a whole shoot for that? Maybe not. Maybe you could get lucky and get one good shot setting up a tripod or handing your phone to your spouse/friend/toddler. But if you schedule a session with a photographer who cares about you and what you do (you know, someone like me!) they will take time to get to know you, your business and how you want people to view you. They'll ask you where you're using these photos, what your brand colors are, how you want people to feel when they visit your website or your Instagram. They'll design a whole shoot based on your answers to make sure you get photos you feel great about and can't wait to share with your clients. They'll help you know what the heck to do in front of the camera and which light is best for you. And if they're really good, the whole process could even be fun!

Last thing - most of us occasionally struggle with what we all affectionately refer to as "imposter syndrome." You feel like everyone else knows what they're doing and you're still trying to figure it out. What you're really craving is credibility. I'm gonna direct your attention to the photographs below to show you how a branding shoot can level up your credibility exponentially! The photos on the left are DIY. On the right, you have our professional branding photos. Tell me which ones make you think "this person looks like they know what they're doing."

So is it time for branding photos? Are you looking to become a familiar face that people like and trust? Then YES! It's time to show them the best sides of you and what you do! Click right here to contact me and get all the details about how I can help you out!
