CUSTOM BRANDED IMAGERY FOR ARTISTS & ENTREPRENEURS WHO ARE DRIVEN BY VISION AND PURPOSE.

hey dreamer, lemme grab your attention

For some reason though, you're feeling like the current brand you have just doesn't fit anymore. That you've grown past it and can't go it alone anymore. Or what's worse, it's not speaking to who you need it to.

Do you ever get tired of all the about pages & IG posts summed up in tacos, coffee & Friday introductions?
yeah, me too. There's enough headshots out there of people holding tightly to a coffee & laughing to the side to last an eternity. 

What you need is a library of images that don't just show people who you are, but also what you do and how you're different. Let's show off your story through intentional and cohesive imagery that leaves your ideal client saying I want to work with them!

you're a driven business owner who knows their stuff. i don't need to tell you that you need a unique brand.

it's evident

"I feel like my brand is being represented in every pic. You take the time to dive into each business and their needs, rather than typical headshots."

welcome to my corner

the photog & strategist who believes photos should be both pretty & purposeful

Since I stumbled into this whole photography thing, I didn't think I had a story to tell.

Comparison hit me like a freight train & in an effort to find some sort of success, I pulled together a copycat brand of all the "right things".

The thing is. The right thing for one, is not the right thing for all.

It's easy to copy someone else's plan. The hard thing? Well that's being brave enough to figure out your own.

That's why I'm passionate about helping brands clarify their own story and broadcast it to the world through intentional, branded imagery.

It's time to bring your uniqueness to the table.
And stand out from the crowd.

let's do that together

True brand photography takes stock of everything your brand has been up until now, pairs that with a vision and becomes the vehicle that will take your brand into the future.

And. That's not something that can be created during just a photoshoot.

Instead, it's gleaned through an entire comprehensive experience tailored to your business and brand.  Here's how it'll go:

"VERY TALENTED AND KNOWLEDGEABLE BRAND PHOTOGRAPHER, SHE WORKED TO NAIL DOWN KEY ASPECTS OF MY BUSINESS WHICH SHE USED TO CREATE A DETAILED LIST OF PHOTOS."

Rachael is a very talented and knowledgeable brand photographer. Prior to my session, she worked to nail down key aspects of my business which she used to create a detailed list of photos. She also provided great advice on outfit choices and prop ideas.

During the session, she was a helpful guide, giving posing directions and tips often. She was so fun and such a joy to work with during the shoot, like having an old friend behind the camera. And, the photos she delivered were absolutely stunning. I will definitely be using her again in the future.

Purposeful brand photos require intentional planning. That's why I've created a method that helps me catch both your story & vision. Then we pull together inspiration & curate a gameplan that actually makes those purposeful photos possible.

Once we've compiled all the ideas at your planning meeting, I step in to help you style the session. Whether it's choosing locations, combing through props or helping make the final outfit call. I become your right hand gal as we create a space for your brand to come to life.

A library of images without a plan will just leave you as lost as you were before. That's where strategy comes in. I not only help you create the photos, but also empower you to use them by crafting a plan that's unique to your story & brand. So that way, you actually get to take your brand where you want it to go.

bringing your brand to life requires just a little curation

because your new photos shouldn't just sit in your gallery without a plan

because pretty & purposeful photos don't just happen on their own

frequently asked

Q: what is a brand photography?

A: Brand Photography is a curated and cohesive, visual representation of the experience your business provides. Which encompasses more than just what a headshot or a collection of product photos can give you.

It's a library of images that includes a variety of different types of photography that doesn't just show who you are. Instead brand photography highlights who you are, what you do and how you're differently.

True brand photography takes stock of everything your brand has been up until now, pairs that with a vision and becomes the vehicle that will take your brand into the future.

Q: will you help plan the session?

A: The short answer, yes! I believe your brand photos should be both pretty & purposeful. Since I promise that The Brand Experience comes a library of images that are both those things, I've created a system that takes a deep dive into your brand's story and vision in order to create photos that are unique to you and make you stand out from the crowd. 

This all happens in a planning meeting prior to the actual session where we'll nail down locations, concept ideas, an extensive shot list as well as answer any/all questions you might have.

< back to the list

Q: do you style & pose during the session?

A: Of course! Being in front of the camera can be awkward for everyone, including me! So, I do my best throughout your session to give clear direction and instruction to ensure you never ask "what do I do with my hands!"

Because brand photography is so curated, we must take the time to style and create what your brand looks like in the locations you choose, photos we plan and flat lays we style. If you aren't confident to do this on your own, don't worry! I also intentionally take time to select and curate what's included in each image to ensure it's exactly as it should be!

< back to the list

Q: how long does it take to get the photos?

A: I request at least two weeks to curate, edit and upload your photos. This just gives me plenty of time to guarantee that your images are perfect! I hand select and edit each one to make sure it represents your brand well and that it is of the utmost quality. Expedited image delivery is available at an extra fee.

< back to the list

Q: what's a strategy meeting?

A: Once you receive your full gallery of images, it can feel a little overwhelming. That's why with every Brand Experience, I give the option of a post-session strategy meeting. We'll review both your gallery and current marketing strategy and come up with a comprehensive plan on how and where to use your new branded imagery most effectively! Let me help you take the stress out of planning all the things and let you get back to serving your people well and doing what you love in your business!

< back to the list

Q: what's in the brand session guide?

A: Once we've compiled created the vision for your shoot and paired it with an inspiration board, I take the time to create your Brand Session Guide (creative brief)!

This includes a detailed timeline, shot list, mood board for each location, prop list and it lays out anything else we might need throughout your session.

< back to the list

Q: how do brand photos actually tell my story?

A: Remember, your brand is simply an experience. When someone come's in contact with your business, they encounter & remember your brand.

All brand photography does is take stock of the stories you're already telling. And your story is really just showing people who you are, what you do, why you do it and how you do it different that someone else.

Then we pair all that with your vision/dreams for the future. And together come up with concept ideas & images that empower you to get to where you want to go.

And voila! You've there's your story-filled & purposeful brand imagery.
