Brand & Content photography

The #1 branding mistake across all industries is lacking consistency. You can bring your brand to life with photos that tell a story. Consistent brand photos will help elevate you as a leader in your industry while saving you time when it comes to creating content for your business. Whether it’s just for social media or all of your marketing efforts, you’ll have a content library with a variety of images you love and are excited to share across all your marketing platforms.

→ communicate your brand

“People do not buy goods and services.                                  They buy relationships, stories and magic.”

STRENGTHEN YOUR BRAND AND TELL YOUR STORY

Frequently Asked Questions.

Branding photography is an investment in your business so I would recommend that you start as soon as you are financially able to. You should also have a clear understanding of what your brand is about, who your target audience are, what connects you to them and how you can serve them. A Brand Shoot will provide you with images for all your marketing needs from your website and social media accounts to printed marketing material like business cards and pamphlets. It’s the next step to elevate your brand.

You and I will customize a photoshoot to fit your business. Once you book your shoot I will send you a Brand Questionnaire to get a clear picture of your business and photo needs. This helps us to craft a session that fits your brand pefectly. We will go through the process of planning your shoot together and I will guide you on location, props and outfits. 

This is one of the first questions I’m asked when a client books a session! I know you want to look and feel beautiful and confident during your photoshoot and that’s why we will discuss and plan your outfits during our planning session. I recommend that you plan and coordinate your outfits with your brand colors in mind which will help create a cohesive look throughout your marketing platforms.

With a Brand Shoot you receive the commercial rights to your images which means you can use them anywhere to grow your business and increase engagement, from your website, social media profiles and blogposts to email marketing campaigns and printed marketing materials.

When we do a brand shoot we batch-create weeks or even months worth of social media content which saves you hours every month. Posting consistently and strategically will increase your engagement on social media which will generate more organic leads for your business. 

Brand photography is a type of commercial photography. Your branding session includes a commercial release which means your use of the images is not restricted and you also have the right to alter the images which is not allowed with non-commercial photoshoots.

I would recommend that you do a brand shoot at least once every 3 months, depending on how much content your business needs. Bloggers and influencers usually need a variety of content more often so they might need a monthly shoot. I can customize a subscription option for your specific needs.

It takes me approximately 2 weeks to deliver the final edits of your branding session and I am typically booked 1 to 2 months in advance so I would recommend that you plan and book your branding session 1 to 2 months ahead of when you would like to use your images. 

Planning is everything when it comes to a successful brand shoot. We will be able to get the most out of our time together if we can move quickly between shots and get as many photos as possible. The way to do that is to plan our timeline, the shots we would like to get and the outfits and props that goes with it. It is also a good idea to bring someone to help keep you organized. 

You will receive your final retouched images approximately 10 days after I receive your final selection for editing.

Your images are delivered via an online photo gallery. You will receive an email with a link and pin number with which you can download both high resolution and web-sized images.

Yes, I will send you a link to a low-res gallery of all the usable images from your shoot from which you can select the number of images included in your pricing plan.

Once we confirm the date I send you an invoice and you     pay the 50% booking fee. 

 Once your booking is confirmed I send you a Brand Questionnaire and Session Contract. 

 

 

Planning

 

The Brand Questionnaire helps us to get a clear vision of what we would like to achieve with your brand shoot. 

I create a Pinterest inspiration board and send you an invite to pin ideas for your shoot. 

After I receive your completed questionnaire we arrange a meeting or a phone or Zoom call to discuss and plan the timeline, props, outfits and locations for shoot day.

 

 

Shooting

 

If you are having your hair and make-up professionally done I recommend that you leave extra time should someone run late or if a service provider takes longer  than anticipated. 

I recommend bringing a friend or assistant along for the shoot to help you keep things organized, carry props and help you with wardrobe changes. 

All you need to do for the rest of your shoot is relax and enjoy the process!

2 to 3 days after your shoot I will send you a culled gallery of low res images from which you will select the number of images included with your session.

Editing and final retouching of your selection takes approximately 7 to 10 work days.

Your final edited high-res images are delivered via online gallery with a download pin.
