THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS FOR PERSONAL BRAND SESSIONS.
Personality and Authenticity are the main ingredients in a Personal Brand Photography Session. Then make sure you add ingredients such as props, and items and hobbies related to your industry. Rachel’s coffee addiction has been highlighted in our sessions since day one, it is relatable and it adds a point of connection to her audience.
One of the exciting aspects of personal brand photo sessions is the opportunity to collaborate with clients and customize their visual identity. During our brainstorming sessions, I engage my clients by asking them about their copy and messaging. Understanding their brand’s voice and tone allows me to conceptualize images that perfectly complement their written content. By aligning the visuals with their copy, we create a cohesive and impactful brand experience. Additionally, I encourage clients to utilize a content calendar, which I have curated with target key events, holidays and fun international observances. This ensures that their social media posts are timely and engaging, providing excellent opportunities to connect with their audience.
Infusing humor and selecting the right props further enhance the unique, fun and memorable impact of their brand imagery. Together, we create visuals that captivate, resonate, and leave a lasting impression that won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
A well-planned content calendar allows you to align your brand with relevant events and occasions, tapping into the collective excitement and interest surrounding them. By strategically incorporating sports games, such as major tournaments or local team matches, you can showcase your passion for sports and create a sense of camaraderie with your audience. Fun holidays and “national days of” provide opportunities to infuse humor, showcase your personality, and express your brand’s values. Whether it’s a silly national food day or an inspiring awareness day, these occasions allow you to connect with your audience on a more personal level, demonstrating your taste, humor, and values. By leveraging a content calendar that targets such events, you can create captivating imagery that sparks conversations, fosters engagement, and strengthens the bond between your brand and your audience.

From building sets and carefully planning pre-production logistics to curating wardrobe choices and collaborating with talented hair and makeup artists, no stone is left unturned in creating a remarkable visual experience.

Humor is a powerful tool in personal brand photography sessions, as it allows us to create fun images that establish a strong connection with the audience. Infusing humor into the visual storytelling process adds an element of playfulness and relatability to the imagery, making it more engaging and memorable. When working with Rachel, her fabulous personality and her ability to bring her A game to each session are truly remarkable.

Together, we explore humorous concepts, brainstorm funny poses, and unleash our creativity to capture images that radiate joy and authenticity.

THE ART OF CONCEPTUALIZATION.
Rachel approaches every personal brand photo session with enthusiasm and a fresh perspective, viewing it as an opportunity to create something new and explore diverse concepts and styles. In the images below, the main concept revolved around an “under construction” theme, and the vibrant colors and cleverly chosen props made a significant impact. The versatility of such imagery allows for a wide range of copy to be delivered effectively. When conceptualizing a photoshoot, it is crucial to consider the purpose and usage of the images. Questions like “What kind of content do I want to share?” and “Where do I want to share it?” guide the direction of the shoot. Deliberate on the message you wish to convey, the tone you want to strike, and the optimal timing for sharing the content. Additionally, contemplate how these images and copy can raise awareness about your brand and foster connections with your audience. Ensure that the pictures and concept align harmoniously with your personality, as authenticity is key in personal branding. By carefully considering these aspects, you can create personal brand imagery that not only captures attention but also effectively communicates your unique story and values. This strategic approach, coupled with Rachel’s creativity and collaborative spirit, has proven to be a winning formula for building an engaged audience and establishing a strong personal brand presence.
THAT STOP THE SCROLL
Rachel approached me with the idea of posting about the danger of hacking in real estate transactions and how her business revolves on making smooth and secure transactions for her clients. For this first image I used a projector and green lights to portrait a hacker vibe for her picture.
And in the picture below we opted for fake money, a money bag and a burglar costume. Now, I want to make emphasis on the fact that when you search for brand photography online, you’ll come across a plethora of generic photos that seem to repeat across various industries and brands. What sets my personal brand sessions apart is the emphasis on delivering a truly customized and unique experience for my clients. I firmly believe that every client deserves fresh and distinct content that sets them apart from their competitors. When clients choose me as their photographer, they can expect an individualized approach that captures the essence of their brand and their business. With each session, we collaborate to create imagery that is uniquely theirs, reflecting their unique vision, personality, and values. .
Over the past 11 years, I have dedicated my life to honing and expanding my skills in lighting, photography, retouching, set building, and storytelling.

I am grateful for the creative freedom and collaborative relationship that Rachel and I have cultivated over the last four years. It brings me immense joy to witness her trust in my creative vision and expertise during her photoshoots.
