LIFESTYLE BRANDING GOES BEYOND THE HEADSHOT.

creating images that are
warm + real + timeless + classic

 

Have you ever opened up your favorite magazine like Sunset, Better Homes and Gardens, O, or Joanna Gains’ Magnolia Journal and looked at the beautiful photos of women and families relaxed and in their element? Well, my friend, that is Lifestyle Branding at it’s best!

Lifestyle Branding goes beyond the traditional headshot (no deer in the headlights or bland backdrops here), and illustrates the heart of your business.

It’s no secret that marketing has evolved from product focused (buy!buy!buy!) to establishing a real and authentic connection with your audience. People want to know who is behind the products and services they are buying. They want to know WHY you do what you do and WHAT it would look like if they bought into your business. They want you to SHOW them, not tell them how great your business is … and that, is what Lifestyle Branding provides.

HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT?

One of the things I pride myself on as a photographer is knowing what it’s like to be in your shoes. I know what it’s like to be in front of the camera and the anxiety that comes when the camera is raised, your heart starts racing and your body freezes.

  • I know what it’s like to live with crippling body image insecurities and self doubt.

  • I know what it’s like to just need validation from a trusted source who will tell me “I am doing it right”

  • I know what it’s like to feel lost or not good enough.

  • I know what it’s like to want to feel beautiful.

But the good news is, I know how to combat all these feelings and make you feel like a rock star during your photoshoot. And that my friend, is one of the biggest things that sets me apart. I know exactly how to direct and encourage you through the whole experience. You will never wonder “what am I supposed to do with my hands?” or “do I look fat or have a double chin right now”? My job is to make you feel beautiful and confident in front of my camera and produce gorgeous images that truly capture the heart of who you and and your business.

And if you are still thinking that you “need to lose weight before my photoshoot,” I am known for posing my clients in ways that can shape your body better than Spanx and even take 5-10lbs off! So sorry love, that excuse doesn’t work here. Whether you are a size 2 or 32, you need to get your cute buns in front of my camera.

In addition to knowing exactly how to direct you and that gorgeous bod of yours through your photoshoot, I also incorporate elements of my branding and social media education during your Lifestyle Branding experience. Depending on what type of package you choose, there are opportunities to work with my directly to learn how to truly define your brand and learn HOW TO USE their custom image library for social media marketing - and this my friend is something that is exclusive to my Lifestyle Branding experiences.
