This is my beautiful long time friend Kathryn from Composed Journeys . We got together a couple of weekends ago to do a branding session for her new business venture. Kathryn is a travel planner that has a passion for adventure, family vacations and staying organized. We wanted to shoot a variety of looks so that she could use these images across multiple social media channels. Kathryn works from home and so we shot her images there which made for a comfortable feel. Her sweet pooch Sammy was home obviously and we just had to include him in a few pics!!! Kathryn is that friend that always makes time for a coffee and a visit and is always interested in whats new. She is honestly one of the nicest people ever and so kind and is a true listener. That is why I think she makes a fantastic travel planner because she really listens when you speak and has an invested interest in everyone she meets. She is able to plan a holiday for your and what you want not just what she thinks might be fun!
Here are a few reasons why one should book a branding session:
1. It presents a professional appearance and adds to the LIKE,KNOW and TRUST factor.
People want to see clearly who you are, what your all about and if they can see this…. they are more likely to trust you and in turn, do business with you. There are too many voices screaming for potential clients’ attention so you want your first impression to be a solid one. You want to present yourself and your business as decisive, important and indispensable. As a business owner, you don’t want to use a picture of yourself that you cut out from another photo. You don’t want to ask a good friend who has an expensive camera to take a picture of you…. just because its an expensive camera doesn’t mean they know how to use it most effectively!
2. You will use it everywhere on the web and you want a variety of looks that will you can drag out over time. You will use it on social media, your website, newsletter etc. Having a stock pile of professional images helps extended the life of your online presence. You do not want to post the same picture of yourself over and over and over…..that is boring.
3. Stand out from the masses. Everyone you know has a side hustle these days right? Rodan and Fields, Beautycounter, MONAT, Young living (my fav) etc. etc. The girlboss thing has exploded and frankly I think some gal’s are doing a great job with it yet some are still struggling. If your into an MLM company for some side income why not do it right and present yourself in the best light possible….. stop giving the MLM/girlboss thing a bad rep with some great professional images whereby people will take you seriously!!! Its hard to buy from someone that has a profile picture of them and their 6 kids dressed up in snowsuits! Show those people what makes YOU great and people will buy from YOU!
