Your images play a huge role in attracting your ideal customer. When you go to someones instagram profile, you decide pretty quickly if you want to follow them based on their images, right? And when you buy something online you want to see pictures of what it looks like before you invest in it. Your images show people who you are, what you do, and why you're the best at it!
I started my business in college while I was majoring in Communications, so a lot of how I built my business is based off of my Comm classes. One think I learned is that the images I use to communicate my business & brand shape how people think of me, so I make sure my images match the brand voice of whoever I am shooting for!
Kinda, but more fun! I'll shoot a few professional looking-at-the-camera portraits of you, but most of my portraits are taken while you're "working"! Either in your home office, your fav coffee shop to work in, or you ~literally~ at work making what you make
Brand images are an investment, and I do whatever I can to help my clients out! Payment schedules can be customized
I use an online gallery system, which allows you to have access to your images anywhere you are. The gallery is a simple URL, so downloading + sharing is a breeze. You'll have lifetime access to your gallery, and any shoots you ever have with me will be in you own personal portfolio link!
HELL YEAH! I've worked with companies based elsewhere, and in that case you can mail me all your products & on-brand styling props (or I'll shop with your brand vision and budget in mind), photograph everything, and mail it back to you! If you are a service based business or blogger, I am more than happy to travel to you for a big shoot day! Email me about travel packages!
Most people don't! Including myself, I have a teeny desk in my room, but that's "my office"! There are so many incredible studios, workspaces, and air b&b's we can research for your shoot. If we can't find one that fits your style/budget, we'll get creative (i.e ask friends to use their pretty houses, ha!)
I love photographing people "in action", either creating their products, someone using the product, etc. I love shooting relatable images that you can see yourself being in, so all my images are shot in natural light "lifestyle" situations
Anytime a "noticeable" change has happened! If you're releasing a new product, obviously you'll need images of it! But you should also think about updating images of you at least twice a year (I do "hot" and "cold" to know when to take new pictures!)
Sometimes it really is quicker and easier to take your own pictures! My blog & Instagram have tips and tricks for shooting your own content, and my presets in my shop make editing your images so fast and easy!
Make a pinterest or instagram board for inspiration! If you see an image that feels like your brand, or if you see an image you want to pull inspiration from, save it! As we plan your shoot you can go back through your board and see what we can come up with
I can help! After I send you your planning questionnaire, I will help you with any aspect of planning you need! Even if you know you need images, but you don't know what you need images of (you know, but you don't know, you know?) Truthfully it takes me FOREVER to plan my own shoots because I go through a mental list of what I want these images to do for my business, so we'll go through that list together!
YAY! Shoot me an email and I will send you more info! We'll figure out what images your business needs, and plan from there! Full & Half brand sessions can be booked months in advance because of all the planning it takes, but mini sessions can usually be booked on shorter notice!
I can help there too! I share tips & tricks across all platforms (my blog, Instagram, etc.) on taking your own pictures on your phone! I also sell my Lightroom Mobile presets, and they'll help make your images look brighter and more crisp! If you have any questions about phone photography, email or DM me!
Every business needs different images depending on what they do & who they are, so no two brand sessions are planned the same. After picking which package below is best for you, we will plan your session together! I have a questionnaire that asks you all about you and your business, and you’ll send me a Pinterest inspiration board so I can see what you’re imagining in your head. Pre-planning takes the longest out of this process, because I want to make sure we get every image you need!
Along with working with local Baltimore businesses, I also work with businesses based anywhere in the world. After they mail me their products and any on-brand styling props, I shoot everything based off what they told me in their questionnaire, and mail everything back. Email me about this!
