What is Professional Branding Photography?

Professional branding photography is a private session for business owners.  These sessions can focus on the client, their products, or a little bit of both!  These sessions are less formal than a headshot session, and more organic than a product photography session.  Professional branding sessions should focus on showing off your unique personality and style – think of them as business lifestyle sessions.

Professional branding photography images are perfect for social media.  They work great on websites, in advertisements, or in marketing materials.  If you own a business, your public image is the face of that business, and you want to make a great impression that’s consistent with high quality materials.  Any place you want to market your business – do it with a quality photograph!

Why is photography important for Professional branding?

Marketing is all about connection. People are drawn in by warmth. The right image sets a tone, makes a consumer curious to learn more, and draws them into your process. High-quality images for use on social media or in marketing help a business owner tell their unique story.  The right images will convey your unique personality and help build a connection between you and your audience. 


What do you need to do to prepare?

I encourage my clients to prepare for their photoshoot by focusing on self-care. You can leave the portrait details to me! Here are some suggestions, depending on what suits your personality and business needs. When you feel great, it shows. So, consider:

  • Getting a manicure or pedicure
  • Finalizing your wardrobe, including ironing and locating accessories
  • Gathering any products or props you might want to use
  • Groom and/or exercise animals if they are to be incorporated into the session
  • Tidy your house or yard for home-based shoots
  • Get plenty of rest
  • Drink lots of water
  • Do a practice run on makeup and hairstyles, or book styling appointments
  • RELAX AND ENJOY THE PROCESS! Ultimately, there is no right or wrong way to prepare. Do what makes you feel your best, and it will show through in the photography. I promise we’re going to have fun along the way.
