Breaking Down a Brand Shoot | What to Expect

January 18, 2023

Today, we’re talking branding. If you’re out here wondering what to expect from a brand shoot + what the process of that looks like, we’re about to break it out down nice and simple! When you hire me as your brand photographer, here is how things will flow!

Step 1. Connect

Say hello and spill all those sweetie little details you’re dreaming up for your brand portraits. ✨ Start the conversation over Instagram DM’s with an audio message (my faaavorite❤️) and dish all the thoughts + ideas flooding your mind or if you’re ready to dive right in, slide right into my inbox HERE and let’s get real!


Step 2. Brand Questionnaire

You’re officially booked, we’ve gotten a little weird, done a happy dance and now we’re jumping right into the good stuff!!! 🌞 We’ll get start with a brand questionnaire that will help personalize your portrait experience and hone in on your goals and the overall vibe we are going for.


Step 3. Inspo Sesh

This is where it starts to get fun… Inspo sessions are done over a video call where we get to dream up all the details of the vibe you are going for, review your questionnaire and essentially bring that vision to life through your custom brand questionnaire.


Step 4. Shoot Day

The moment we’ve been waiting for!!! LET’s CREATE SOME MAGIC BABY✨ Gosh these shoots are loads of fun. Exploring a fun location, laughing a ton (because we don’t take ourselves *too* seriously around here) and creating strong visuals for your brand🤩 This is where the good stuff comes to life!


Step 5. Gallery Delivery Day

Woo! Your brand gallery is here and now you get to share these beauties with the world. I can’t wait to see how you implement these photos to help share your message with the world. 💃 You can expect your brand gallery to be delivered 2-3 weeks from the date of shooting together.


My Main Focus

Before working with any brand I spend time getting to learn their mission, style and audience.

It’s important for us to identify:

–>Who we are wanting to reach.

–> How you want people to feel when they encounter your brand.

–> And, most importantly, the message you want to communicate through visual storytelling.

Once we have clarity, we create a vision board and go through a custom questionnaire to personalize our shoot entirely tailored to your brand. Getting to breath life into brands through strategic portraits is one of my favoriteee✨ things.
