“A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer's decision to choose one product or service over another.”
– Seth Godin
IS A PERSONAL BRANDING SESSION RIGHT FOR YOU? HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU NEED A PERSONAL BRANDING SESSION?
You should consider a personal branding session:
* If you own any kind of business.
* If you are the face of your brand and it is important for people to connect with you.
* If you wish to take your business to the next level by stepping up your visual branding.
* If you want your ads to look fresh, polished and professional.
These sessions are more customized than a headshot session, There are lots of factors to consider including the location(s), outfits, branding colors your brand messaging, etc. Therefore, my pre-shoot experience will be more involved and in depth in the pre-planning stages. I help you decide how to best translate your brand into images that you can use on social media, your website and in advertising. Each brand is different and each session is personalized. These sessions also differ from my regular sessions in that we include the digital files. You will end up investing more into this type of session than you would with a head shot session, simply because you’re getting a wider variety of images, and more time spent with planning, consulting, and finally, shooting. With these images the end goal is to help you be more profitable in your business, so think of these images as a true investment in your brand. I am happy to setup customer recurring packages based on what you need for your business.
BOOKING YOUR PHOTO SESSION
It’s always best to book your photo session in advance, especially if you are working towards a specific deadline. It’s also important to take the time required for photo selection and editing into account when booking your personal branding session.
THE BRAINSTORMING SESSION:
Once you’ve set a date for your photo session, we can begin brainstorming ideas. The photos from your personal branding session are very multipurpose. They can be used for your website, promotional materials, blogs, ads, social media, headers, banners and more. That’s why planning and analyzing is so important. Knowing where and how you want to use your images will help me understand whether you’ll require vertical, horizontal or square images for instagram. If you will want to use text across any of your images, please let me know so that I can plan the image backgrounds accordingly.
YOUR BRAND DESCRIPTION:
I ask that you come up with a brief but detailed description of your brand and what it stands for so that I can find ways to bring this across in your images. If there are specific colors that you would like to incorporate, please let me know.
