Wondering what types of branding photos you would get from a personal branding session?
Personal Branding Photography sessions are designed to help you showcase your business and brand. They are not standard portrait sessions where it’s just you and the camera. These photoshoots are for building a library of marketing photos that you can use to promote yourself and your business.
- Favorite Things
All creative entrepreneurs and small business owners need a headshot! These days, it’s a basic requirement for everything from your website, social media, business organizations, networking groups, and more. A personal branding session is a perfect time to update your headshot if it’s been a while since the last time you took one.
How long is a while? Well, if your headshot is older than two years, you need a new one. If you’ve changed your look – whether hairstyle, started wearing glasses, weight change, or anything else that significantly changed your look, you need a new headshot!
Types of Branding Photos: Workspace
Where do you work from most days? Do you have a beautiful home office? Do you like to go to your favorite co-working space? Or maybe you have a favorite local coffee shop? Do you have a studio space? Wherever it is that you work, let’s show off your workspace, whether it’s a mobile or permanent location.
In my experience, clients love to see where you work from. This is one of the most popular types of branding photos to take during your branding session. Whether you work from home or from anywhere, be sure to include your workspace.
Where You Find Inspiration
As creative entrepreneurs, we find inspiration for our work from so many different places. Whether you’re a calligrapher and inspired by the arboretum, an website designer inspired by modern artists, or a personal stylist inspired by classic movies. Wherever your best inspiration comes from – let’s capture it!
For example, if you find inspiration from magazines, let’s grab some and add them to your shoot!
Your Favorite Things
What do you always have in your hands? I’t’s likely’m guessing your smartphone if you’re like most creative entrepreneurs…or pretty much anyone in 2023! Or perhaps it’s your iPad Pro and Apple Pencil for sketching and practicing lettering.
Maybe it’s your notebook where you jot down all your latest ideas or planner to keep your day organized. Perhaps it’s your Cold Brew or Stanley tumbler full of water.
All the things that you keep at your side to get things done in your business in life can be photographed during your personal branding session.
My client below keeps a beautiful journal for jotting down ideas and thoughts.
Types of Branding Photos: Products
If you’re a product-based business, bring your best selling items to showcase during your personal branding photoshoot. Or, if you have a new product that you’ll be launching soon, a branding shoot is a perfect occasion to showcase it.
For my client below, as course creators that launch every quarter they brought their course materials to shoot during their session.
