HOW I BREATHE LIFE INTO YOUR PERSONAL BRANDING
When it comes to personal branding, I don’t have a client type. Nor do I have a recognisable style. And that’s precisely why my customers enjoy working with me and keep referring me on – they love that I consistently produce clean, crisp pictures while refusing to be pinned down to a single photographic approach yielding cookie-cutter imagery.
Let’s face it, the whole point of you hiring a personal branding photographer is for you to be seen for who you are. You represent your brand and tell your story to clients your way. My skill is in being able to park my own style and translate yours into imagery that screams you.
You’ll see what I mean if you head over to my Instagram feed where I post pictures from my clients’ photoshoots (with their permission of course). Each image is quite different to the ones either side of it, giving my feed an eclectic quality that I love (and I’m confident you will too).
personal branding clients & their testimonials
Fettle and bloom
Cristy wears 3 different ‘hats’ all within the health and wellness space. She’s a hospital dietician, has her own clinic sessions within an established space and also runs her own business: Fettle and Bloom where she specialises in her passion, helping her clients overcome their IBS symptoms.
Due to the varied nature of Cristy’s roles, we chose a lifestyle style session that focussed on health and nutrition, two main elements to her life. Combining these images with situational ones (she’s based in Bath and we needed that to be very clear) and showing how her clients can work with her, we managed to tell her story in a way that’s perfect for her new website and social media feeds.
but the books
The team were expanding and they needed updated imagery to include the increased scale of their business. They’re also far from the stereotype we think of when we imagine accountants and there was a little challenge thrown in…..
plan and grow
Karen’s background in business gives her a level of knowledge that we don’t often see in the small business space, and her new images needed to reflect that.
She’s more than a coach and her approach as a strategist is different to most. Her images needed to incorporate her corporate skills, as those skills are a massive USP for her, but they also needed to make it clear that she’s no corporate robot – she’s friendly, warm, approachable and passionate about helping micro-businesses succeed.
the study buddy
Nathan contacted me after being told by his PR that he was being included in The Times’ educational supplement and that he needed some professional imagery, pronto! Soon after, other publications expressed an interest in writing about him, and it became clear that his website needed updating to service the resulting enquiries.
Sarah had been through a rebrand and needed her website imagery to be brought inline with that. She had planned a full branding session and then became pregnant, so booked the “your first chapter” package to tide her over until later in the year.
Fit for adventure
As a Physiotherapist specialising in injury, Charlie needed to balance clinical expertise with warmth and approachability. Her clients are likely to be feeling vulnerable so a visual story-board was necessary for her website, to gently walk her clients through the options of working with her and to familiarise them with the therapeutic process.
Becky Barnes style
Becky was about to be featured in the press as a champion of pre-loved fashion but only had images of her in high-street stores which didn’t represent her brand. We scheduled a lightening quick session on one of her favourite shopping streets and got to work. The images have a vintage feel to reinforce the pre-loved messaging.
the unicorn factory
Helen has such a unique business and naturally wanted to reflect her fun, playful, creative side in her branding images. With a name like The Unicorn Factory, there really was only one way this session was going to go…
victoria denning aesthetics
Vicky is a qualified and experienced paramedic, and she brought this background into her aesthetics career. She wanted to look professional, highlighting her clinical expertise, while also nodding to the ‘beauty’ element of her work. There was a delicate balance to strike, and I believe we hit it squarely.
what to expect during your personal branding photoshoot
My packages range from a full branding shoot through to a single headshot and now the new branding subscription service!!
There’s something for everyone, no matter what stage you find yourself at with your business.
All packages includes the following features (what varies between packages is the number of and length of time spent on the shoot, the number of images created and the number of locations and outfit changes):
· A planning session to ensure we capture the perfect mix of images, conveying the right messages for your brand.
· Business portraits that show you in a way that will resonate with your ideal clients.
· Some fun/relaxed/lifestyle images to show your human side and allow you to break up your business-related content with moments where your viewers can get to know you better.
· Branded stock images to make posting to social media a breeze.
· Detailed posing guidance so you can forget your nerves and let your images tell your story.
· Full editing of each image to ensure it reflects the best version of you and your business. Headshots are hand edited to a 'magazine cover' standard and the documentary/lifestyle images will be curated so they (and in turn you) look polished and professional.
If you’re not sure which option works best for you or you need something different, just give me a call and we’ll figure it out together.
