Investment - Personal Branding

When a headshot photo just isn't enough

People crave connections with other people. In today's society of social media, it is so important to be able to relate to your clients in a way that shows off your authentic self. Giving them the opportunity to see the person behind your products allows them to invest in more than just an item--they will want to invest in YOU.

Personal Branding sessions are less formal than a traditional headshots session and will focus on you, your products, or a little bit of both. They incorporate a larger variety of shots, locations, and capture parts of your personality that you simply can't fit into a single headshot. The key is to showcase what you have to offer in a way that also conveys trust and builds a connection between you and your client.

Personal Branding sessions are for small business owners, fitness experts, consultants, coaches, models, influencers, bloggers, actors, and any individual that wants to showcase their personality through photography.

Every Session Includes:

  • Pre-session consultations (in person by request)
  • Online interactive personal styling assistant
  • Full access to my Welcome & Style Guides with lots of details on what to expect, additional styling tools, and how to best prepare for your session
  • An in-depth questionnaire to help me get acquainted with you and your style, customize your session based on your brand, and gather any ideas and/or expections you may have
  • All final images for viewing in an online gallery approximately 3 weeks after your session (can be expedited for business, if necessary)
  • Professionally edited and high resolution digital images with a personal and limited commercial print release
  • Professional hair styling and/or makeup cand be added to any package. Please contact me for styling recommendations

All sessions are shot at a location of your choice, at your place of business, or in your home.

Sessions require a $200 retainer fee to book and secure your date. The remainder of your fee + tax is due by the date of your session. For sessions booked months in advance, payment plans can be made available upon request.

Should the session need to be rescheduled due to weather or illness, your retainer will follow to the next scheduled date within 2 months of original scheduled date. Should you choose to cancel and not rebook, the retainer fee is non-refundable.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don't know how to pose!

It is OKAY! In fact, I don't expect anyone to know exactly what to do in front of my lens. I will guide you through the entire session and help you with flattering angles and natural poses. I will take the time to make sure you are relaxed. We'll play some music, we'll talk lots, and I promise you'll have the hang of it in no time.

How many outfits can I bring?

Depending on the package that you purchase, you'll have the opportunity to change outfits several times. If you're not sure what to bring, just bring it all! We'll work together during our planning to choose your best options, but if something changes once you're on your way, it's better to have the extras to choose from at the session.

What if I don't have a set brand yet?

You don't need to have a brand (or even be in business) in order to have beautiful photos of yourself! The goal is to show off YOU and your personality, and we can have fun with it without needing a specific business goal in mind.

Should I get professional hair/makeup?

YES! This is not required for my sessions, but I recommend it for several reasons. First of all, you are marketing yourself to your target clients and want to put your best out there for them. Professionals know how to apply makeup to allow your face to look natural and flawlessly smooth in front of the camera, as well as stay put. It won't look caked on, just fresh. Same with hair! They use products that will allow your hair to move and look shiny, tame fly aways, and stay that way until your session is done. Plus, I want you to feel beautiful and confident in your photos! Ask me if you would like me to provide a few recommendations.

I have blemishes!

Honestly, who doesn't? It's completely normal and nothing to be self-conscious about. I provide professional retouching and hand editing on every photo and I will do my best to minimize blemishes and even out skin tone. If there is something else that you are self-conscious about, we can talk about it during our pre-session planning.

When can I expect to receive my gallery of images?

My turn around time to have your edited gallery delivered is approximately 3-4 weeks after your session date via online gallery with a private link and password. You'll be able to download from there. In some instances, if you need your gallery rushed, I may provide a proofing gallery and/or rush fee to have it finished for you sooner. If you need something prior to your gallery release, please just ask as I am always willing to work with you on special dates!

The forecast says RAIN!

We live in the PNW so it happens. I watch the weather A LOT and I always have backup dates available for rainy and really dark, ugly weather. I don't shoot in the rain (unless you specifically request it). Weather reschedules get first priority on the next available dates.

What if my teammates and I want to have our sessions together?

Absolutely yes! Let's talk about a group rate and what exactly you're looking for -- team and individual photos, or just individual shots but at the same time.

Do you provide a print release?

Yes! All of my images are delivered in high resolution with a personal print and a limited commercial release form for branding clients. This will allow you to use your images in advertising and marketing across your platforms and have your images/materials printed at the lab of your choice.
