I believe that your brand photos are more than just pretty Instagram feeds. Your photos should bring your story to life and magnetically attract your dream clients to the heart of what you do.

As your branding photographer, even more than giving you photos that let your clients get to know you, I am here to help you believe in the successful business owner that you are.

Hi everyone, I am so glad you’re here! This story is a personal one for me, and kind of difficult to talk about. But I wanted to share this with you because no matter what business you’re in, we all deal with fear and failure. It’s my hope that this post helps you overcome these things in your work too! 

2020 was the first year I took photography from side interest to full-time career. 

(Quite the year to launch a business, right?!)

Out of all the wonderful clients I’ve gotten to work with, I had one who wasn’t happy with her gallery of images. And to be honest, I wasn’t happy with them either. 

Long story short, I ended up spending a ton of hours editing these photos the first time, retaking them, hiring a photo editor for the second round, and then editing them myself in photoshop. 

After all this, I was able to deliver a final product everyone was happy with. But in the end, I’d put in more work and time for these photos than I had for any other shoot, and it was only booked at a ½ hour session.
