Listen, I totally get it. As a self starting, business woman, I know it seems nearly impossible to capture and translate all of what you do in your business into photos without feeling weird and contrived. (Been there. Done that. Have the t-shirt.)

Well, take a breath, friend, because this happens to be my speciality!

Since 2017, I've helped hundreds of women JUST LIKE YOU create magazine style photos to level up and take their visual brand to the next level. If you're anything like me, it's hard to step in front of the camera with confidence. 

I'm ready for the next step!

Being in front of the camera doesn't have to feel fake... seriously!

That's why I love really taking the time to get to know you and help you to create a brand that really feels authentic to you. 

And on your shoot day, I have a deceptively, easy going process where we can feel grounded, enjoying the experience together. I've found this produces the best, personality filled photos that will feel more authentic to you without feeling contrived or fake.  

WHEW, isn't that a huge relief?

Watch some cool behind the scenes of a branding shoot!

I have the pleasure of getting to know you and uncover those parts of you and your business that are important to highlight. These parts are going to make you a super attractor for the people who are looking for exactly what you have and will be dying to work with you!

ALL BRANDING SESSIONS ARE HALF OR FULL DAY EXPERIENCES, shot on location, in your space, or in a professional studio, somewhere in the United States where we decide to meet up.

I will help you with everything from
- preparation
- location sourcing
- wardrobe guidance
- how to be
- how to pose
- and capture those personable expressions
that make the best photos!

I want to help you feel good in your skin so we can capture your best you.

Thought Leaders, Podcasters, Authors, Speakers, Real Estate Agents, Business coaches, and Life Coaches, all come to me for brand pictures for their website and social media pages.

But many say after working together, they were more inspired with what's possible in their business, with a new found shot of confidence in what they do! 

What is personal branding?

Magazine style photos that capture how it feels to work with you and your business.

I'm TOTALLY ready for the next step!
