Personal Branding

Personal Branding

Are you an author? A blogger? An artist? Own a business? Personal branding can help you by showing people something about you words might not.

Personal Branding is a cross between Business and Lifestyle imagery that take you beyond what headshots alone can tell people about you. Your personal brand is not just how you work, but how you live life!  Personal Branding is a magical mix of all photography genres, intended to take you beyond what a headshot can.  Your personal brand is how people think of you when your not working, that intangible quality that draws people to you.  Many professionals can benefit from personal branding, especially when it is important having others relate to you in such a way that they see your authenticity and approachability.


There’s more to you than meets the eye. You own a business, but you are more than a business owner. You have a life that enriches you, that adds energy and fulfillment to what you do. When people hire you, they have confidence in you because you are MORE than just the sum of your parts. It’s your whole life that makes you, and your business, unique. That’s personal branding. Telling YOUR story. Your website tells a story, about you, your work, your workforce. Visitors to your site instantly get a feel for who you are based on your images. Images to keep people interested, to tell the story, to get them to come back…to call you. Images that work hard for your business. Thinking about personal branding for your business? Contact me.
