What Is Personal Branding Photography?
Personal branding photography tells the story of you and the business you’ve built or invested in. These images showcase your personality, and may incorporate details about your beliefs, character, and ethic as they relate to your business. Personal branding photos are meant to communicate to your clients what sets you apart from the crowd; what makes you and your business unique and interesting.
The goal of personal branding photos is to appeal to like-minded clients who will be attracted to the story you tell in these images. Your images are the first impression you make on your clients, so they should be remarkable and convey the message you want your clients to remember when they think of your brand.
They should also be on-brand, and should match the mood and feeling of your business as well as the website, logo, and other existing marketing or branding materials.
Who Needs Personal Branding Photography?
Personal branding sessions are great for anyone who wants to solidify their marketing message with custom, personality-infused portraits.
You can see what clients are saying in my Google Reviews — Previous personal branding clients include:

- Those Who Prefer “Casual” Headshots over “Corporate” Headshots
- Creatives (artists, photographers, models)
The Process/ What to Expect
Check out my portfolio below. If you have questions, you may wish to check out the FAQ page. Then get in touch!
I recommend booking at least 2-3 weeks ahead of time to ensure sufficient planning time for your session.
Complete your booking by filling out the (digital) paperwork I’ll send you. Your booking is complete and dates held after I receive your signed session agreement and paid retainer.
We’ll then set up a time to chat about the details of your session – We’ll discuss existing branding and design elements (logo, brand story, website, brand colors etc) and then determine the best location, wardrobe, and overall “feel” of your images to match your brand.
Have your Session! After your session, you’ll receive a link to your private online proofing gallery, where you’ll be able to select your images. Once you’ve selected your images, I’ll edit them, and you’ll receive them via a new online gallery where you can download the finalized images. Turnaround time is dependent on number of final images.
