Brand Your Business with Unique Photography

What is

Brand Photography?

Personal brand photography is the art of using high-quality images to tell the story of your brand.

Using photos to market and advertise your brand not only positions you as an expert in your field but it gives your clients and audience a more authentic brand experience. Whether you’re a coach, online entrepreneur, influencer or speaker, beautiful, professional photography can really take your branding to the next level.

Is a personal branding session right for you? 

You should consider a personal branding session:

  • If you own any kind of business.
  • If you are the face of your brand and it is important for people to connect with you.
  • If you wish to take your business to the next level by stepping up your visual branding.
  • If you want your social media feeds to look fresh, polished and professional.

How We Work Together, 6 easy steps

San Diego Brand Photography

1. Book Your Session

It’s always best to book your photo session in advance, especially if you are working towards a specific deadline. It’s also important to take the time required for photo selection and editing into account when booking your personal branding session.

2. The Brainstorming Session

Once you’ve set a date for your photo session, we can begin planning your shoot. The photos  can be used for your website, promotional materials, blogs, ads, social media, headers, banners and more. That’s why planning and analyzing is so important. Knowing where and how you want to use your images will help us understand whether you’ll require vertical, horizontal or square images for instagram.

3. The Questionnaire and Brand Description

To fine tune your session, I'll send you a questionnaire to identify the description of your brand and what it stands for so that we can find ways to bring this across in your images. We'll get specific on the overall design and  colors to incorporate, the ideal location/s and also what to wear. My goal is to paint the perfect picture of what it is you do, and what sets you apart from your competition. These images will provide an important glimpse into what it would be like to work with you.

4. Pre-session

Confirm any hair and makeup appointments and confirm the address one week prior to your session. If you will be coloring your hair, or doing a manicure, this is the time to do it. The day before your session we ask that you prepare your outfits, ensuring that they’re steamed, pressed and on hangers. If you want to look great in your photos, make sure you are well hydrated on the day prior and be sure to go to bed early so you will look and feel well rested.

5. The Day of the Session

Now it’s all about relaxing and enjoying the experience. I'll  direct you on how to pose and ensure that you get the best possible shots. We’ll take a mix of lifestyle images and headshots to give your audience a better view of what you do on a daily basis. We’ll also take some behind the scenes shots for a more personal view of what it’s like to work with you.

You'll receive your images 4-6 weeks after your session and I'll send you a link to your private online gallery.

"I booked Rochelle for a personal branding session in Rome. I’m a handbag designer and the face of my brand, but I hate being in front of the camera. Rochelle made the whole experience so effortless and made me feel like I could really be myself during the session. She was great at making me feel relaxed and directed me on how to pose to ensure we got some natural looking shots for my website and social media. Needless to say the result was a very beautiful and personal photoshoot which really feels like me and my brand. I couldn’t have been happier with the photos and the experience!”

"We had the pleasure of working on a brand shoot for our company with Rochelle and had such a wonderful experience. The photos turned out better than we could have imagined and are exactly aligned with our brand’s aesthetic. Rochelle also made everyone feel so at ease and comfortable during our shoot, while efficiently and smoothly transitioning from one set up to the next and keeping us on schedule. We absolutely loved our experience and the resulting photos and couldn’t be happier!"
