And that's why brand photos matter. You are special and you offer something in a way that no one else does. You can try to tell people this all day long, but if you want to really get through to them—you have to show them
& most importantly
I've been helping business owners hone in on their brand since college. Yep, college. I've been building websites, taking photos, and creating social media strategies for real businesses since before I even had the degree to do it.
Don't worry—I did get the degree, and even though I'm self-employed, I use it every day. A degree in integrated marketing communication gives me a unique edge—half of my studies focused on mass communication, video production, and PR, while the other half focused on marketing and business strategy. I won't bore you with the technicalities of what I learned in school almost 10 years ago—but just know that with me, your brand portraits are more than just pretty pictures—they're a fully thought-out strategy designed to take your business to the next level.
For Stee's brand portraits, we wanted it to feel like she was your best friend. Someone you could (and will!) pour a glass of champagne with after your portrait session.
She loves color, so we capitalized on that and photographed her around some of the best wedding venues in Columbia!
A city vibe was the way to go for this commercial real estate firm's owner, but we wanted to go somewhere a little unique—not the main, happening areas of the city. We wanted to go where real estate was booming and the vibe was cool.
Oh, and we found the best view of the city on top of an empty parking garage. It was epic!
Every piece she curates for her store is inspired by nature. She loves natural textures like wood, clay, and metals that bring a little of the outside in with her home decor.
Along with being photographed at her store, for this session we decided to use that inspiration and take some of her favorite home decor pieces outside—a blanket hung in a tree and a nice chair in the grass. We were obsessed with the results!

After booking, we begin to plan and mood board! This is the fun part—where we strategize how to communicate through photographs the way you can help your clients.
I'll put together a photo directive that will detail out the full plan of session day. We'll begin booking locations for the session, hair/makeup, and any other vendors/assistance we'll need.
Session day! I'll have a checklist in the photo directive so we don't forget anything day-of. We show up and CREATE. Ahh, I live for this!
Whether you need a full site designed or a few custom pages, I can help! I've been designing websites since 2014. Some of the businesses I've designed for include landscapers, photographers, commercial real estate firms, massage therapists, party planners, and more!
