Why should headshots and branding photos be boring?! One of my favorite things is working with entrepreneurial women who want something that shows off who they are, in and out of their business, for their websites and social media. When Claire reached out we started chatting about various location ideas, wardrobe options and the general look and feel she was going for. I was thrilled when she decided on two locations. The RiNo Arts District would give her that fun, unique, urban feel she really wanted and her warm and inviting home which was perfect for showing off all of the wine-tasting goodies.

I have had the privilege of photographing Heather's professional branding headshots multiple times in the past year and I have absolutely adored working with her!
Professional branding sessions are perfect for a variety of reasons - you can use these on your website, blogs, social media, banners, fliers, business cards and more. It's also more personal when it's you and your products rather than buying generic stock images. I like to ask clients about their business and who they are so it will help us collaborate on a variety of poses, props to bring and location.

I love working with local small businesses on their marketing and professional branding photos! Each business is a little different and I enjoy collaborating with them to create amazing photos for their website, marketing and social media that represent them and their businesses.

As a small business owner, I know just how competitive things have become!
The old idea 'if you build it, they will come' is no longer enough. I've been chatting with some of my colleagues and contacts, fellow small business owners, and hear these same things over and over.
Real Estate agents are finding that competition for listings is fierce, even in hot markets full of potential sales.
Creatives are finding that their 'dream job' is so much more than designing websites while wearing PJ's at home.
Independent boutiques are finding that it's not enough to simply open a storefront, they also must find a way to connect with their community in an authentic and unique way.
I get it. As a wedding & portrait photographer, I've been through all of this myself. Hey, us small business owners have to stick together!
Today, we're talking about setting your work apart, and the importance of presenting yourself both personably and professionally as the face of your business.
I have known Tobi for a few years now, so when she reached out to me for her new branding, social media and website photos I was ecstatic! I love her style, energy and attitude about life and I knew we would have a ton of fun! I also knew she would want to get creative and I thrive on photo shoots like that....and her session did not disappoint! I love the soft golden light and all the sun flares.
