Frequently Asked Questions

In a few sentences: It’s more than those corporate headshot sessions with forced smiles and plain backdrops. Personal branding photography is genuine imagery that breathes life into your business, showcases your personality and makes your brand stand out. Personal branding photography is perfect for entrepreneurs, small business owners and everyday people!

Great question!

Branding sessions are more in depth, strategic sessions that tell the story of your brand, showcase your professional personality and demonstrates what it might feel like working with you. Branding sessions will include headshots, candid lifestyle imagery that feels natural and unposed and often times details of your brand or craft.

For example, if you are an artist, this may include images of you working at your craft, details of your tools and and images of your finished artwork.

Headshot session is just that. Traditionally, a cropped photo of your face looking at the camera often against a seamless backdrop or outdoors with a simple background. Usually used on a corporate website, business cards, modeling promo or dating profiles.

Heck yes!

Is it time to update your LinkedIn profile or your work profile page but you don’t need a full Signature Headshot Session? I offer a basic headshot session beginning at $400 which includes 2 final edited images of your choice and a session that will get it done within 30 minutes. These sessions are quick & easy!

Prefer a studio session? I use a couple local studios and can recommend the best fit for your session.

Additional images can be purchased separately if you discover you can’t pick just 2!

1.Reach out. 
Interested in booking a session with me? Reach out through my contact form or email me. Tell me about your project. We’ll set up a 15-minute discovery call and that’s when you’ll fill me in on ALL the details about you and your brand. How do you plan to use your imagery (social, website, print marketing)? 
How many images are you looking for (is this for a website refresh or a month’s worth of social media content)? Please include any hard deadlines for this project.

2. Custom proposal. After our discovery call, I’ll create a custom proposal unique to your brand and send it your way. Every session is customized including the location, length and number of final images you will receive. Your proposal will be designed to meet the needs of your project.

3. Book It! My husband and I have a new life motto, “Book it!” While this applies to planning a trip, booking a self care appointment or branding session- we say, “Book it!” Life is too short not to. After all, at least this one will be a tax write off. 

To secure a date, a $500 retainer and signed work agreement will get you on the calendar.

4. Let’s Get Creative. After your date is secured, I will get to know your brand, your goals and the vision you have for this shoot. We can talk about shoot logistics, best time of day to shoot, outfits, styling and props. I am happy to recommend other vendors if needed such as hair and makeup artist or stylist.

Turnaround time for headshot sessions are generally 10 business days.

Personal Branding Sessions galleries are often larger and are sent out within two-three weeks.

If you are an entrepreneur, you may want to book a branding session if:

  1. You are about to launch a new business.
  2. You are rebranding your business.
  3. Standing out online in a competitive market is one of your goals.
  4. You want to build trust with your audience.
  5. Your business has moved to a new location.
  6. Ready to take the next step? Reach out and book a discovery call.
  7. I recommend booking your branding session 4-8 weeks in advance.

Why I’m Inspired By Working with Entrepreneurs

This is the “SEO” section of your homepage. Use relevant keywords and describe your relationship to the area you serve. This will naturally lead to using keywords like your city name, major landmarks, nicknames for the city, and other relevant terms. This is also a good opportunity to link to other important related content when you need an internal link from your home page.
