Creating Images that Elevate your Brand
Personal Brand Photography - telling your story
Are you struggling to find the photos you need for your social media, websites, blogs and the list keeps going? Are you spending way too much time taking selfies or finding someone else to snap a quick photo? If you said yes to either of these then a Story Session may be what you need.
We live in a digital age with more and more people joining social media sites every second. Trying to standout and share your story is getting harder to do. Did you know that the images you use matter?
Having the right images, images that match your brand, matters. Images not only help grab attention; they help create a connection because now you can been seen in your element. Sure you can use selfies, but if you are ready for the next level and to be taken more seriously you need professional images.
If you combine the right images and a good story that makes for a great one two punch. Everyone enjoys a good story and can relate to them. Storytelling is part of our very core and creates a narrative that allows for a deeper level of connection with customers. With the right copy and a relevant supporting image your story can spread far and wide.
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
What is a Story?
A way to share who YOU really are and what you believe in
A way to connect with others
A way to build the know - trust - like factor
A way to show what it is like to work with you. Show what that experience would look like (literally)
A way to show how you can help them (your ideal client)
"Personal Branding is all about your unique promise of value and what you bring to the table."

What is a Story Session?
A story session is when we bring your brand to life and make it about the person behind the brand and not the brand itself. After completing a short questionnaire together we will determine what stories you want to capture and share with your audience. This will be strategic to make sure the images we capture will connect with your ideal client and tell your story.
This will be a combination of lifestyle and portrait images to give you the best selection and variety. If you don't want to be in all of the photos that's okay too. Story sessions are about every aspect of your business and brand. It may include product photography, flat lays, the possibilities are only limited by our imagination and creativity.
Story Sessions are a huge time saver for you. Instead of scheduling multiple photo sessions, taking selfies or asking someone to help each time the need for photos arises you will be get them done in one session! A story session will give you at least 3 months worth of images. Your images will be ready to use for any occasion. We will have the images cropped and sized to work with you social media taking that bit of hassle off your plate. An added bonus of Story Sessions is having one photographer that knows you and how to capture your story. Don't forget a picture is worth a 1000 words.

"Branding is not merely about differentiating products; it is about striking emotional chords with consumers. It is about cultivating identity, attachment, and trust to inspire customer loyalty."
Even if you are camera shy or just don't like having you photo taken it is okay. It isn't uncommon to feel this way and want to hide when someone pulls out a camera. I want you to share your hesitations with me so I can help you feel as comfortable and confident as possible during your session.

Let me be your Photography
Hi I'm Michelle!
I have been in photography for over 15 years. During this time I have worked in sports photography, landscape, portraits, product, lifestyle and personal branding. All of this experience has allowed me to learn different aspects and how to tell a great story.
Personal brand photography allows me to be able to weave the various aspects of peoples lives, business and brands together to tell the best story. Photography is just pointing a camera. Photography is capturing an image that says what is happening and captures the emotion in that moment. It is all about the connection.
I love helping others share who they are.
