On-brand photos don't happen by accident! Branding sessions involve a bit of pre-work and consultation to ensure that our vision is realized. I would suggest booking about 3-6 weeks ahead for new clients to allow time for planning.
You bet! My branding packages are designed for businesses. I know that you want to use them in every which way possible, so I include a full commercial license along with the full resolution images.
That depends on the package you choose. Commercial photography is an investment in your business. Great photography will help you communicate your message to your audience and generate income, so although it can seem expensive, it will pay for itself. Prices start at $1995. Contact me for more pricing information.
This is a common question but in reality I am not more expensive - I am just offering something completely different. But what does that mean?
Let's focus on three things:
Personal Branding Expertise - Not only do I specialize in photographing women, but I specialize in photographing women in business. Your story is unique. Your product or service needs to stand out in a competitive market, so hiring a professional who understands this and can deliver your vision is important. Let me capture this and create imagery you won't get anywhere else!
Full Commercial Release - At the end of this wonderful experience you will want to post to social media, print posters, create ads and more with your beautiful new photos. Don't worry, you won't get any surprise invoices from me afterwards. You will have all the rights you need to use your photos any way you like to promote your business!
Commitment to Service - From your booking to your branding consultation to your shoot and delivery of images, I am there every step of the way communicating with you and making sure you are having the very best experience possible. I am committed to providing you with not only beautiful imagery but also the highest standard of client service. Guaranteed.
Serious business owners who understand the value of connecting with their audience and who want to grow their businesses book Personal Branding shoots. They are smart and efficient planners who want to save time in their busy schedules by batch-creating content.
You bet you can! I will hook you up with the best of the best!
Some clients are skilled in styling their own hair and applying their own makeup and wish to do this themselves. This is absolutely fine. We can discuss this during your pre-shoot consultation. I do, however, recommend opting for professional hair and makeup. First, you can relax and mentally prepare for your shoot. Secondly, their techniques and products are perfect for the camera and will leave you looking flawless and radiant!
It is completely normal and understandable to be anxious about a any photoshoot. However, from start to finish we are focused on ensuring you are as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Most of my clients are very nervous but they all say that they felt immediately better after their pre-shoot consultation. This is why I feel this part of the experience is so important. By the time I start shooting, you will feel as though you have known me for a long time and your nerves will subside. I promise.
The consultation is all about discovering your brand and the stories you want to share. Together we will plan to ensure that you get what you need. Letting me know how you plan to use your images will affect the way I photograph your session. You may want to leave lots of space to one side for text on your website or leave space to crop square for Instagram. We will dive deep into you and your brand and let the creative juices flow!
Yes of course! Part of the Personal Brand consultation is to identify the stories you want to tell. We can figure out the locations that make the most sense during that consultation.
Your looks will be planned at the consultation. It all depends on which stories we plan to tell. For the sake of variety, it's good to have several options. For the sake of staying on-brand, we will make these decisions ahead of time - it's worth it!
I am on hand to help with this! During your pre-shoot consultation I like to find out more about you and what you really want from your shoot and images. I love to chat with clients about their outfits and I can even advise you on what will work best with your body shape and colouring. I can even point you in the direction of some inspiration. I like to set up a secret Pinterest board with each client so that they can show me possible outfit ideas and I love it! It helps me prepare for your shoot and I get as excited as you do! No two shoots are the same!
It depends on the number of stories we are going to capture and how many images you want me to deliver. We should have a good idea by the end of our consultation. On average I would expect it to take 3-4 hours.
2-5 business days, but that all depends on what we decide in your consultation.
I will set you up with an app on your phone so you can view and download your images anytime, anywhere! It's pretty cool, I can show you some examples...
I want YOU to be the first to share your images. After you've had a chance to use them, I would love to include them in my portfolio so I can show them to potential new clients who are as awesome as you are! We can discuss this at your consultation. I am happy to respect your wishes either way.
Absolutely! I love to travel and photograph new places! Right now I'm sticking to Canadian destinations.
If you have decided to go ahead and book your Personal Branding session - great! Let's get on the phone and start planning! Click the "Book a Consult" button to book a 15-minute call with me. We can discuss which package is right for you, I'll send you a questionnaire so I can start getting to know your brand and we will book your Personal Branding Consultation. It will be so much fun, I love getting creative with new clients!
I am open to discussing ideas with you, and I am there to bounce ideas off of during your consultation! Any location in Calgary is fine and we can even head outside of Calgary (maybe to the mountains if that makes sense for your brand), in which case extra fees will apply.
After you've selected the images you want, I will deliver them with basic retouching. Colour correction, contrast, exposure and light skin softening are all included in a basic retouch.
Extra services (subject to an extra fee$) include:
As long as you have a clear vision of your brand and know exactly who your ideal client is, then Personal Brand photography is a great investment.
Once we've discussed the package you want, I will send you an invoice that you can easily pay online with a credit card or etransfer if you prefer.
Awesome! I'm SO excited! Please submit your request via my contact form and I will be in touch with you as soon as possible!
