More Than Just a Headshot

Personal branding goes so far beyond your website design, the fonts you choose, and your logo. It’s all about the story you want to communicate to the public. It’s about what you have to offer to your clients — the skills, qualities, and experience that sets you apart from the rest. So many different elements go into building your personal brand, but the photos you use to tell your story are a powerful introduction.

No matter where you’re currently at in your business, exceptional personal brand photos could be the thing to close that next deal. They’ll help you build trust with your audience, win hearts and minds, and communicate your story in a more effective way.

Why Personal Branding Photography?



Let the photography do the heavy lifting in your marketing. Every detail, from location, to wardrobe, and props communicates to your audience who you are and what you do.


People are more likely to do business with a brand they know, like, and trust. Great photos will show you're approachable and will humanize your business.


Consistency in your marketing will build trust and credibility with your clients. Brand awareness is good, but brand affinity is better. Photography and a focused message can move you from talked-about to trusted.

Small Business Branding Photography for Inspire Women’s Fitness 

Ayanna is perfect combo of delightful/badass as a  solopreneur. Her members look forward to seeing her smiling face at the desk every time they walk in the door…but she’s also a resilient & adaptable businessperson.

After losing her gym space due to Covid, she pivoted to 2 years of online & community hall classes, and is now finally settled in the perfect space in the heart of Fort Langley. 

Ayanna wanted some fresh photos of the classes in the new space, but wanted them to authentically show who this Inspire community is. It’s a space where all women feel welcome and celebrated,  rather than having to fit into an Instagram-perfect mold.

So in that spirit, our shoot showcased a real class with real members, all ages & abilities, no posing or forced smiles.  We incorporated Zumba, Body Sculpt, Zumba Strong, and TRX routines, so Ayanna would have a variety of images for promoting the different class offerings. Then we rounded out the shoot with some posed & lifestyle images of this friendly face and her space.

 This was an assignment from CPABC’s magazine to profile the CFO of the hugely successful local startup Article Furniture in a lifestyle shoot. Their goal was to show a little more about the vibe of the company than just your standard CFO headshot. I absolutely love their furniture, so it was fun to have an already perfectly styled showroom.
His dog is a big part of the office culture, so it was fitting to include this sweet pupper in our day as well.
