People do not buy goods and services. 
They buy relations, stories and Magic. 
 

Everywhere your business is represented is an opportunity to create connection on a deeper level. And with ready-to-post image content at your fingertips, you can confidently share your message with your audience and clients.  Strong visuals can help position your brand (and you) as the go-to expert in your industry and inspire your audience into action, growing your business with ideal clients who connect with you on a deeper level and become part of your valued community. 

Branding photography is more than a simple glance at the products or services you offer - it’s a powerfully intimate exploration into the story and heart behind your business.
Branding is more than colors and logos; it weaves together the many layers of your business: what you do, why and how you do it, who you are and how you are different. It's so much more than what your brand looks like -  it's how you make people feel.

Reach out via our contact form and we'll set up an introductory consultation to go over your goals and determine which of our services best suits your budget and business needs.

We'll send over the proposal and contract via our online booking system. A retainer and executed contract confirm your booking, and you'll always be able to access payments, invoices and your contract via our online Client Portal.

02 onboarding

Let's plan out your session. We'll send over an in-depth questionnaire, and then work together to build a mood board - a visual road map that will represent the look and feel that you are hoping to capture. Then we'll then map out your session(s) to best tell the story of your brand, planning the flow of your shoot from beginning to end. This ensures we make efficient use of our time together and gives you a variety of images to use across all your media platforms. 

03 prep

This is the fun part - I know it can feel vulnerable to be in front of a camera, but rest assured our planning process will leave you well prepared so you can just relax and enjoy the shoot! My role is to create space for you to be comfortable enough to be yourself - so we can tell your story in the most authentic way. We'll take a combination of photos: headshots, lifestyle (you in action), environmental, detail closeups, action shots, product/prop shots, and various moods, expressions, and emotions.

04 photo time

About 7-14 days later you'll receive a link to download your images (cue the squeals of excitement). We include both high-resolution (for print) and web-sized (for online) image files so you'll have a complete library of storytelling visuals that you can use across all marketing platforms. I will also highlight your photos on my website & social media (as they fit in my branding) and tag you in order to share your brand with my audience. I am passionate about building community and supporting my fellow entrepreneurs!

Frequently Asked

Each branding session is unique and I am happy to create a custom session package with deliverables tailor-made to suit your needs. If you have a question not answered below, please reach out - I'd love to chat with you! 

When is it time to invest in branding photography?

Professional photos can help you up-level your brand at any stage in your business.  Maybe you're just starting out and want to make sure you come out of the gate strong, or you are well established but want to refresh for your long-awaited new website. Maybe you have a new course offering or product launching soon, or maybe you just moved or opened up a new location.  And if you have upcoming press or publicity opportunities you'll definitely want fresh imagery to make sure you and your brand are well represented in that extra exposure! All that said, it’s best to make the investment with photos only when you have a concrete business plan and marketing strategy in place, then your brand photo visuals can pull everything together to drive the messaging home.

What if my office isn't that cute?

We can't all have on-brand, Pinterest-worthy office spaces, so if your spaces doesn't align with how you want to represent you brand we can certainly brainstorm other local ideas or  review studio or workspace rental options for your session.  

where can i use the images?

Anywhere it suits your business! Your website (any and all pages, but especially About, Services and Contact), Blog posts, social media, newsletters, online courses and presentations (and digital products like e-books or magazines), print marketing collateral like brochures, business cards, post cards, client welcome packets, packaging, thank-you-cards, and you can even print them out and use them as personalized decor at your business location. 

do you offer videography as well?

We do not.  I choose to specialize in photography to give you the very best of this specific art form. However I know several wonderful videographers and am happy to refer you to them - so you can have a team that focuses on video with the same intention and care that I give your photography. 

can i have the RAWS + copyrights too?

Our packages include only fully edited (and sometimes lightly retouched) JPEG image files.  RAW files require special software (like Adobe Lightroom, Camera Raw,  or similar) to even open (much less edit)... software most of my clients don't have.  All jpeg images will be delivered in both high-resolution (for print) and web-sized (for online use). 
As for Copyrights, those stay with the Artist. Say you're a dentist, and Crest toothpaste sees an image I took on your social media and they want to license it for their marketing.  You would not be authorized to sell it to them, only the Artist would.  The Commercial Use License included in every branding session authorizes you to use the images for advertising/promotion/commercial purposes for your own business - provided that you are not selling the images or licenses to use them to third parties. 
Both the RAW files and all Copyrights can be purchased separately. 

My branding photo shoot with Marie was better than I ever could have expected; she made me feel so comfortable and had so many ideas! My photos came out as

 a perfect representation of my brand values and my personality.

Such a worthwhile investment-- I got so much more than I ever expected.

Marie captured my business brilliantly. The whole process for my branding session was 

 I cannot believe how incredible our photos came out. I just can't recommend Marie enough.  

She’s a magician!

Marie has a very creative eye for photography, is very personable and 

 fun to work with, and VERY reliable

with returning phone calls/emails/proofs (something I've found extremely lacking with most other photographers I've worked with). I definitely recommend her! 

Marie is absolutely wonderful to work with! 

Great communication,
