Hi, I'm Emma
As a small business owner, I have quickly learned over the years how important having a brand that represents you and your business is. Your online presence and brand should reflect your unique personality as an individual. I have been lucky enough to meet many other incredible small business owners and be their Charleston SC branding photographer over the years.
Whether you are just starting your business or have been at it for years, you may wonder how to set yourself apart from others. You may be wondering what a branding session is, what that looks like, and how to find a brand photographer. I’m going to dive into all the questions you might be asking yourself, so let’s get started!
First, before we get into all the details, let’s learn about a branding session. A branding session is when you (and your team, if you have one) get your photos taken by a brand photographer. In this photo session, you will get headshots taken, get some pictures of any products you sell, tell your story through the photos, and have your personality shine through. At the end of the day, you’ll have plenty of photos of yourself and your products to use throughout your website and social media. Even if you prefer to avoid getting your pictures taken, it is essential to show your followers and client who is behind the business name. People love connecting with the person behind the camera, clipboard, or florals.
A branding photoshoot is a powerful tool to communicate a compelling story and establishes your professional brand. A business should look into having a session because you can create a lasting impression on your ideal client. These photos will build trust and develop relationships with your followers. This photoshoot is all about you as a person. What do you value, what’s your personality like, and what are hobbies or things you treasure that make you stand out from other small business owners? Think about it this way; if ten others offer the same service in your area, what are the things that will make you different from those others, and why would people want to hire you instead?
Together we can come up with fun ideas of how we can showcase what you do, your personality, and what makes you unique. Whether we want to create a Pinterest board filled with inspiration, or a mood board, there is so much inspiration out there, but it’s important to remember that we want to create photos that represent you! It could become stressful thinking about how to prepare for your branding photoshoot, but don’t worry though, these four ideas will help you make the most out of your session:
