Bite-Sized Branding Sessions
If you’ve been thinking about getting professional brand photos for yourself, but aren’t quite ready to jump in for a whole session, this EXCLUSIVE mini-event was designed just for YOU!
We’re so excited to announce our Bite-Sized Brand Photo Sessions: a one-day event full of short branding sessions to help entrepreneurs and small business owners get a tiny taste of brand photography at a beautiful Airbnb on Val Vista Lakes.
Each session will include:
- 40-minute private photo session at our gorgeous location
- 2 outfits
- Online gallery to choose your favorites
- 10 Lightly-Edited Images
- Pampering, posing, and plenty of fun! (plus snacks!)
Who Needs A Bite-Sized Brand Session?
When it comes to social media, there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing. You could post a new photo every day for the rest of your life and still not reach the saturation point. This is especially true when it comes to brands and their social media presence. In order to stay top-of-mind, you need to be constantly putting out new content.
Bite-Sized Brand Photography Sessions are a convenient solution that provides a limited number of high-quality photos in a short time without a significant investment, allowing you to update your website and social media with fresh photos!
We’re offering these at substantial savings from our regular branding photo sessions. Full custom sessions usually start at about $1500 for a 2-hour session. For this bite-sized session, the cost is $550 plus tax, payable in 2 payments (or you can pay it all now if you prefer). The non-refundable retainer of $275 plus tax is due at the time of booking, and we’ll send an invoice for the second payment of $275 plus tax payable before the event. The booking link is at the bottom of this page.
What is a “Mini-Makeover”? Because these sessions are super-short, in order to get you in and out, you’ll do your own hair and foundation, and our makeup artist will apply color on your eyes, lips, and cheeks and be sure you are camera-ready! My makeup artist is professionally trained and will make you look like a star! See her bio here – scroll down past mine. (Session price is the same with or without the makeover.)
What does the location look like? I chose this particular Airbnb because it’s light, bright, and neutral, boho styling. It’s newly remodeled and is beautiful, inside and out. Photos are included below.
How long will it take to get my images? We’ll look at images throughout the shoot, and your gallery to select favorites will be emailed within 2 weeks of the session. You can download the 10 images you get with the session and purchase additional images if you want more.
What type of editing is included? Images will be provided with my Signature Edits (correcting for color and lighting, brightening, etc.) and you may purchase additional retouching on any image if needed.
I’ve never done a personal branding session before. What kind of images are included?
Here are a few sample images. Note that these are not from this particular location, but are from previous full brand sessions, representative of the types of images we’ll take.
For a Bite-Sized Brand Session, we’ll still focus on you, but the shots will be more standard, such as of you “working” or personality shots that you can use in a variety of ways – sitting on the couch, working at the kitchen counter, working at the desk, etc. We’ll provide you with more information once you register, but you are also welcome to reach out and discuss if you’d like. Here’s more info on the custom branding sessions we regularly offer.
What if I don’t know what to do for my session? Don’t worry. I provide expression coaching and posing to help you look your best and communicate your personality through your images. You can also view images during the session to make sure we have the shot!
What should I bring? Once you register, we’ll send out information to help you prepare including what to wear and what to bring.
What if I have more than one person on my team? Just have each person book their own session. Then, if you book back-to-back sessions we can get a few shots of you together between the two sessions. If there are several people on your team, just give me a call and we can book a team branding day designed specifically around your brand.
What if I wait too long to book and there are no spaces left? This is a one-day-only event, but I do offer full brand shoots that are customized to your specific brand all year long. Custom brand shoots include a 1-2 hour pre-session where we talk about your brand personality, your ideal clients, and the stories you want to tell through your photos. We talk about the locations that will help tell your story, and what outfits fit your brand message, and we plan out the full shoot. On the day of your shoot, hair and makeup usually takes 1.5 hours, and the shoot is 2-4 hours depending on the package you select, so it’s a much more customized experience. You can book a free consultation call to discuss what you need in a brand shoot.
How do I book? On the schedule below, click on March 30th, choose your time, and check out to pay the non-refundable retainer to reserve your spot. You’ll be with us for about 2 hours (even though the scheduler only says 1 hour.) Come at your scheduled time. Mini-Makeover will be first (starting at your start time) and then the photoshoot will follow.
More information, including the address and lots and lots of details, will be emailed during the next few weeks to help make sure you are ready for your session on Bite-Sized Brand Day!
