Brand photography is images of you doing what you do best, so that your dream client falls in love with your brand even faster😎 Since people tend to buy from brands that they know, like, and trust, we'll brainstorm ways to make your images  genuine, #on-brand, and consistent.

What is brand photography?

Everyone with an online presence! Business owners, influencers, bloggers (yes, even photographers). Professional images will perform much better online because they're high-quality and stand out amidst the scroll. They're Scroll Stopping 😎If you post on instagram, facebook, a website, blog, or any social media, brand images are for you!

who is it for?

After inquiring on my contact page, we will hop on a call and talk more about your brand/business and what kind of images you need. My sessions go by an hourly rate, so we will plan out how much time is ideal to photograph the images you need. The amount of time we shoot does not mean that you will get more or fewer images, I just know how long it takes to photograph certain people/things! For example, if a blogger needed a month's worth of outfits photographed just for one Instagram post, we can knock that out in like, 30 minutes. But, a business owner who needs a refresh of on-brand images to last them a few months would need at least an hour of shooting time, so that we can plan it more thoroughly!

How does this work?

Every quarter, or at least twice a year. That way you have fresh, new images for every season. We’ll plan out the best location(s) for your shoot, I’ll help you pick outfits, suggest some “props” that will add variety to your images (while still being #on-brand), and I'll nake sure you get images that will help your brand stand out!

How often should I book a brand shoot?

Even if you’re not ready to plan your session yet, I recommend making a Pinterest board of inspiration for your brand! (see mine as an example HERE) While you randomly scroll through Pinterest, pin any outfits, home decor, colors, mantras, photo ideas, etc., that you feel are #on-brand. Then when we do plan your session, you can add me to your board so I can get a feel for the ~vibe~ of your brand and how you envision your shoot going. Then we’ll plan a location, props, shoots, outfits, and a lot of other fun things! :)

Are these headshots?

Do you offer payment plans?

How will you send the images?

What if I don't live in Baltimore? Do you travel?

What if I don't have a home-office or workspace to shoot in?

Kinda, but more fun and natural! I love photographing people in their home office, fav coffee shop, or behind-the-scenes of them doing what they do best (creating!)

Brand images are an investment, and I do whatever I can to help my clients out. Payment schedules can be customized

All my images are stored & delivered in online galleries, so downloading on-the-go is quick & easy. Any shoots you have with me in the future will be uploaded to the same link, so all your images are in one place

HELL YEAH! I've worked with businesses based elsewhere, and I can either travel to you, or you can send me your products to photograph & send back

Most people don't, including myself! There are so many natural light studios, workspaces, and air b&b's we can research for your shoot. Locations with tons of natural light make a huge difference

How often should I get new brand images?

For headshots I always say you should update them at least twice a year, especially if you make any big changes (like a kickass new haircut). I update my images when the weather changes, so I have "hot" and "cold" images to match the season changes

What if I only need one picture?

Sometimes it really is quicker and easier to take your own pictures, especially if you only need one or 2! 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!

I know I'll need a brand session soon, what should I do now to prepare for it?

Make a Pinterest or Instagram board for inspiration! If you see an image that inspires you, save it! When we plan your shoot I'll be able to scroll through your board to see what vibe you're going for with your brand

I need help planning my brand session, even my outfits

I can help! After I send you your planning questionnaire, I will help you with any aspect of planning you need! A good tip: wear something that you would wear on a normal day (for me that's jeans and a t-shirt, but that might be a dress and killer stilettos for someone else!)
