Dani came to me needing photos of herself that would show the world who she is and what she does; she is a blogger. She wanted to show off her fun flirty side while also demonstrating that you need to take other's perspective, see the world thru their eye, walking in their shoes. Basically having empathy for those around you. Her website at the time of the portraits was titled "Step in Her Heels". It is a work in progress.
It was perfect timing as I am just adding another type of photography; Personal Branding, to my arsenal. What we started out with was a good conversation via Facebook Messenger, as that was easier for her. We discussed what her vision was and what she wanted to "say" about herself as a blogger. We discussed clothing choices and she wanted to make a point of her being in heels, like the name of her website, so we made sure to have most of the images with her in heels. One of the images has more focus on the shoes as a way to point that out. She also wanted to have fun with our session and take advantage of all the beauty surrounding us, so we went to a beautiful garden near where she lives. We also had to show off her love of coffee and that she takes her blogging tools with her while she is on the go.
Personal Branding is all about what you want to show the world and how you want to do it. If you are a lawyer, we would have you in a great power suit with great accessories that are slightly on trend without being too overpowering. We photograph you in your place of business or wherever else you conduct your business. If you want a few images done in the traditional sense, like a traditional headshot, we have a portable studio to use for that purpose. Some of the images could include you talking on the phone at your desk, gathering swatches if your an interior designer, delivering product if you are in sales. There are many ways to do this and I will help you find the right way to help tell your story.
If you are interested in a Personal Branding session, now is the time to get in on the best deal while it is still at the "The Singles" Session pricing. You will be getting more session time; 3 hours instead of 2. More consultation time. Special additional digital products to fit your needs, like a banner/cover photo for your businesses Facebook page, a collage of images for your website, text on the images, etc.... all perfectly sized for web presentations. This is good only if booked and booking fee is paid for by the end of July 2017. That is when my new pricing guide will be out with higher prices for Personal Branding.
***See images above for a sample collage.

I've always loved taking pictures. It's only been in the last few years that it's become a passion of mine. My husband teases me that I am always looking at my surroundings as if I was looking thru my viewfinder. He's right!
