Four Simple Steps to Elevating Your Brand
Read more about each step below!
1. Getting to know you
The most important part of creating effective imagery is getting to know you. You want your branding to be more than “staring blankly into space” photos.
Your headshot and business photographs need to speak to your audience and convey the right message. We talk to you over the phone to learn your brand, audience, and objectives for this photography.
We learn about your position in the market, your competition, your style, and your preferences. By the time you come to your photographic shoot, we know exactly what we need and are ready to go. It’s a relaxed experience, many of our clients mention how enjoyable the whole process is!
2. The Photographic Session
Before our session, we send you tips and info on how to prepare, what to wear, and introduce you to our recommended hair and makeup artists. We answer any questions you have, and you feel confident and relaxed.
Whether you are coming to our studio, or we are coming to your office, the shoot is easy and enjoyable.
We gently guide you and show you how to position yourself to present your best qualities. We coach you on the finer points of facial expression. You see the results as we go and your confidence grows. Everyone sees their photographs and is happy with them before we move on.
Because of our preparation beforehand, the session is relaxed and smooth. In minimal time you get great results!
3. Design Consultation
This is the most exciting part of the experience! We quickly put everything onto the computer after the session.
Together we go through the best photographs we’ve captured. We discuss the message each photograph conveys, and how/where they might be used. We select the ones that will represent your business and brand going forward. Purchase only the photographs you love.
4. Show off your Best
We edit your photographs in several stages, using our Fine Touch editing that shows you at your best, while looking completely natural. Our goal is that you don’t look retouched at all.
Your closest friends and family will simply think you’ve had a fantastic day – and ask what you had for breakfast!
Soon, you have amazing photographs that you are proud of and totally connects with your audience. Files are delivered online in large and web ready sizes, ready to use.
Many photographers only do step 2. It’s not enough. What you end up with are professional looking photos that miss the mark. In the years to come you grow to resent your profile.
Most people don’t know how to act in front of a camera. Our specialty is dealing with people. We coach you and help the most camera shy show off their personality in a relaxed and authentic way. Every time you see your portrait, you’re reminded how confident you felt at the shoot – and it gives you energy.
